GINGER JEANS - CLOSET CASE PATTERNS
SIZES: 0 - 20
With a modern and flattering cut, Ginger Jeans are the daily staple you’ll reach for again and again.
View A features a comfortable low rise with narrow stovepipe legs. View B is sexy and high-waisted with skinny legs and a tummy-slimming pocket stay. Engineered to be as flattering as possible, Ginger Jeans feature subtly shaped back pockets to highlight the curve of the bum, slimming side seams and a higher back rise to prevent peekabooty. Designed for stretch denim, Ginger Jeans will hug you in all the right places.
MORGAN JEANS - CLOSET CASE PATTERNS
SIZES: 0 - 20
Morgan Jeans, slim boyfriend jeans designed for non-stretch & selvedge denim. Inspired by old school denim style but with a fresh, modern cut, Morgan Jeans are engineered to flatter.
Featuring a mid-rise, traditional five pocket construction, contoured waistband, tapered leg and button fly, Morgan fits snugly through the hip but relaxes and conforms to your curves with a little wear (size up for a slouchier, more casual fit). Choose between a regular or cropped inseam
AMES JEAN - CASHERMETTE
Make a date with denim in the classic and versatile Ames Jeans. These 5-pocket wardrobe essentials are the real deal, with features like rivets, belt loops and a fly front. When it comes to jeans, perfect fit is a must. Get the look you love tailored for apple or pear shapes, with two leg options - skinny or straight. Hold the style together with a high rise and pocket stay for secret smooth shaping.
SIZE: 12 to 28
SIZING:12 to 28, with interchangeable pelvis (apple or pear fit) and leg (skinny or straight) pieces.
