K/R - The Rag & Bone "Miramar" Pajama Jean

For your comments, here are pictures of the Rag & Bone Miramar Pajama jean which I referred to in a recent thread. These are a size S, I think they look ok but you tell me if you think otherwise.

Caveat:  I know these are not conventionally flattering!  But they are so comfortable.  They truly are sweatpants.  I think I would have preferred a more tapered lower leg profile, but oh well, maybe this is more modern.

I found the biggest challenge was choosing the right footwear and at the same time, figuring out if it was better to wear them full length or rolled once or twice.  The other issue is tucking vs not tucking.  The waist is quite high, making tucking more challenging but you can also roll the waist down once for a lower rise look.

Yay = keep
Nay = return

Picture 1 -- Semi-tucked, with shorter vamp ankle boots.  
2 -- With different tops but the same foot and ankle strategy as #1.
3 -- With sandals and slouchy tie dye top
4 -- Back view
5 -- Untucked look, rolled way up above Newburys
6 -- Layered crop top and tucked inside Newburys
7 -- Pulled all the way down, full length

Thanks for looking and letting me know what you think.  Honest opinions wanted.

    Ack! I love them. My favorite is #1 then #3 and #7. I prefer to see the waistband.

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    I want them! Keep! The only thing I noticed is the detail shots show "dirt" stains. In my environment that would be too literal - is that a concern for you?

  • kellygirl replied 5 years ago

    Whoa, those are awesome! I think you should keep for sure. My faves are the one with the semi tucks for some reason. 

  • Mia replied 5 years ago

    These are amazing.  I see what you mean about the leg profile but not sure how much is the photo.  You always have such a slender bottom half and these seem to add volume in the photo but I imagine it's just fine IRL.

    You rock these like nobody's business.

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Thanks Anna, Una and Kelly!  It means a lot that you three would like them.  Interesting question about the oil stains.  I already get way too many comments on my distressed jeans, so I'm used to it.  The comments range from, what happened?  To, I'll wreck some jeans for you if you pay me.  Then there are the cool people who think it's inauthentic to wear something like this, they feel only jeans worn in by yourself are legit.  So, I think I can take the head scratching or sarcasm.  I usually point to the skillful, artful distressing but wouldn't dare tell people how much a wrecked jean can cost.

    And I wonder what it says about me that I would not buy a logo "investment" handbag, but will gladly pay top dollar for something that looks like you were living in a tent homeless for a couple of years.

    ETA - Mia we cross-posted.  Thanks for the comment!  Can't you hear Angie cracking up in the background… They have quite a bit of volume.  I took this picture right after, these are a sized down boyfriend jean that I'm wondering if I want to keep or sell on eBay.  So really they're a skinny jean with no Spandex.  You can see how much less volume there is.  But I think the volume dressing thing is new and different so therefore I'm liking it.

    I like them!  #3 is my fave.  The only one I do not like is #6, where they are tucked into the boots.  For some reason they don't look tucked, but just like wide high waters there.  (But I'll bet if you pegged them a bit before tucking it would work).

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    LOL yes Diana I think #6 is pretty bad too.  I think I look like a Cosack.  The Newburys are a match in heaven with skinnies but more challenging to style with other pants.

  • ironkurtin replied 5 years ago

    I love the way they fit and I just bet they are comfortable! I just don't like the distressing. There's too much of it for me.

  • viva replied 5 years ago

    Love #1. Making me wish I had a MUCH bigger clothing budget.

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    I love the fit on you too but I'm not a fan of this much distressing :) :)

  • El Cee replied 5 years ago

    Aaaah --- Love those jeans on you! And love all your stylings, especially 3 & 4. The fit is perfect. An enthusiastic Yay!!!

  • Marmee replied 5 years ago

    I like the fit on you, too, but I'm not crazy about the distressing in the back.  But that's just my preference!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Wow. Those are knitted track pants printed to look like denim, right? THEY LOOK JUST LIKE JEANS. 

    I'm not sure how I'd feel seeing them irl, Denise - seeing as they are sweat pants. But in the photos, I love them. xo

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Yes Angie the photo print work on these is a work of art.  They are made in Japan for Rag & Bone.  I would love to see the equipment that is capable of making these!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Let's take a trip back to Japan. xo

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Cocolion - these look amazing on you.  I cannot tell at all they are not jeans.  I love outfits 1-3 best but they all look really great.  Love, love, love them!!  Enjoy the most comfy "jeans" in the universe!!

  • Sarah A replied 5 years ago

    The application of the photo to the fabric is a work of art here for sure. It is really hard to eval something like this through a photo. As for K/R I think they are really fun. If your wear/happiness factor is high enough to satisfy the price I'd say go for it and have a great time!

  • Jules replied 5 years ago

    Love them, wish I could see them in person. I think they are very you.

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    Keep! They look good in a perfectly reasonable worn-in-jeans way and they feel like sweatpants. What more needs to be said?

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    DROOOOOOL! 

    That is a keep. 

    I want them, too. Rightnow! Dangit, I wish I had remembered to check the nordies stock at work. Do you think I could get away with an XS? Just cuz I have extra baggy BFs already...

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    I really thought they were jeans. That's amazing. 

    I am with Anna. I much prefer them with the waistband showing a bit. And really, what is not to love. These will get a ton of wear; if nothing else, they are a super-stylish lounge item! 

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    I actually love the cut of the pants, no concern there, and I also like how you're styling them. The distressing/staining aspect of them is too much for my un-modern eye! But I think you are in a very different place from me there!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Ok, I confess I just ordered these in "P" off intermix... don't know if that just means XS or what, but I found a code for 15% off. 

    BTW, I loved every single styling you showed.

  • cciele replied 5 years ago

    The print is amazing! I am also drooling over those. Tempting to order... hmm...

    I like them with the waistband peeking out, and the bottoms rolled up. Can't wait to see more styling ideas -- you are totally rocking them.

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    I have completely surprised myself.... I love these! So much so that I would be keen to try them. (Did I say that??). They look amazing. I do think this is a fashion forward look and you rock it. Very cool.

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Rae, I'm glad I have a potential sweatpant sistah.  Cathy I could totally see you in these.

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    I am considering them too if I can swallow the price - I'm guessing I'd be a small unless these are tighter than they look on you.  SO IN LOVE.  I just returned more stuff than the price of these - but I'm still agonizing about them being sweatpants, although the coolest sweatpants EVER.

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Una, my waist is 26.5" but probably 31-32" where these hit.  Hips are 37.5 at widest point.  I would have preferred a hair more room.  These fit my big thighs just fine, plenty of room there, it's the waist / hip where they are slightly more fitted.  The side slit pockets don't actually pull but one more piece of pecan pie and they will.  Hope that helps.

    I would have liked a bit more room in the hip/rear area but then again that would have made the legs too big and especially in the calf so I think I made the right call.

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Love!!!! And so you(Denise and Una:-))

  • Lyn D. replied 5 years ago

    You had me at 'Pajama Jean' :)
    Adore with the tops that echo the palest fades, and they look Fab without a semi-tuck. Just letting your tops fall where they fall looks easy with the shape and colour of the pants.
    Yay from me!

  • leopardluxe replied 5 years ago

    Wow. These do look as cool as they did in the model/pro photos. They look great on you! I'm now tempted to actually spend that kind of money on sweatpant jeans (something I would have never, in a million years, considered doing prior to seeing these photos). 

  • replied 5 years ago

    I really love the stylings Denise. You rock them. Keep!

  • Neel replied 5 years ago

    OMG!! I love this so much on you Denise!!!!! Super chic!! I love it every way you have styled them!! Just brilliant.

    Now if I find those pajama jeans....they will come home with me :)

  • kkards replied 5 years ago

    Wow, these are just fab! i can't believe that these are not "real" jeans!
