NYDJ white denim, now on sale at Nordstroms, $68.90.

These are the jeans I’ll be living in this summer. They’re cool, they’re flattering and can go casual/classic with a simple navy tee, or dressy/bohemian with a floaty silk tunic.

    It’s so good to see jeans with a normal rise instead of the type that hit 3 or 4 inches below the waist – MAJOR muffin top!

    Those are great. I’m long-torsoed so this rise is perfect. I have troubles with Nordstrom/Macy’s jeans sometimes however, the sizing is odd.

    Those look great! Do you buy several pairs to get around that white-gets-dirty-fast problem? I love my summer whites but always wish I had duplicates.

    Is this what Deja Pseu wore on Saturday? Miss J admired them very much.

    Rita – yes, that was why I started wearing this brand a couple of years ago. I simply cannot wear low-rise jeans; they fit me horribly.

    LPC – With this brand (NYDJ), I always suggest trying them on, or if you’re buying online, ordering 2 or 3 sizes and returning what doesn’t fit. Depending on the style, they can be cut very differently.

    mater – so far only one pair, though I may cross my no-spending line this month for a second.

    Sal – thanks! This is the only brand of jeans I’ll buy anymore. They fit me like a dream.

    Miss Janey – yes, these are they. Even in the heat like we’ve been having, they are very comfortable.

    They are really nice.. I say this wistfully, since white jeans are simply not in my stars, not without liposuction. My caboose won’t stand for it-(-I have tried and had the photos to prove it, before they were accidentally destroyed when I clumsily dropped them in my shredder.and hit the on switch). In the next life…

    Mmmm, those look utterly perfect.

    Great price and nice wide-ish leg. One pair of white jeans are never enough( one is always dirty) and at that price you can do two without feeling blue.

    I know what you mean: these made my bum look great. But they had to go back because of crotch ‘fanning’. Curses!

    You’re allowed to break the rules when you finally find the perfect pair of jeans 😉

    I’m even considering them.

    I´d really love to have a pair of white jeans, mine would have to be slim though. But— the dogs! I would not be able to keep them clean. Two big dogs hanging around me really close 🙂

    Katriona – you’d be surprised…these really are really flattering even to those of us who carry some padding in the derriere.

    LBR – you people are ENABLERS, I tell you! Yes, I did break down and bought a second pair.

    Arabella – next time, try the next size up. I hate the “whisker effect” too. I’ve found that going up a size eliminates that problem.

  14. July 24, 2009 / 3:33 am

    Sher – these are definitely worthy of a second pair…

    Imogen – thanks! This is the only brand of jeans I buy anymore, as they fit me like a dream.

    WendyB – thanks! The only thing that would make them better would be sequins.

  15. July 24, 2009 / 3:35 am

    metscan – yes, my dogs are a hazard to white as well. The one who sheds the most fortunately has white hair, but they both have dirty paws…

    Karen – yes, these make your butt look great!

    And it looks like the higher pockets give the wearer a little booty lift! Bonus!

  17. July 27, 2009 / 1:36 pm

    Love the jeans but even more love that you wrote “these are they”. Deeply appreciate your use of grammar.

    Ha! Either you aren’t a cyclist, or you have an old-school Dutch bicycle with a full chainguard!

    Katriona, no white jeans for me either. Not much white anything, actually. The only trousers I own are black, or dark-blue denim jeans, and only worn in the wintertime.

    These are a very flattering cut, and I have no trouble visualising them on someone not as long-legged as the model in the pic.
