I fell in love with my Liverpool jeans on a random Thursday. I dropped my daughter off at school, did Pilates, and went straight to my office after getting home. It was about three hours into labor that I had this moment of, “Oh, hm, I’m still in my gym clothes…” It’s a 50/50 split as to how often I’ll change properly versus staying in my gym outfits, but with a brand new pair of jeans adding some temptation to the equation, it was a day for the first – and so it was I found myself standing in my closet, shocked and amazed that the jeans I had put on were actually More comfortable than the stretchy yoga tracksuits I’d been wearing all morning.
A little background: I’m a fan of denim. I own a lot of jeans and have never, ever understood the camp that thinks they’re uncomfortable (I wore them regularly throughout the early days of quarantine in 2020, confused as to why it would impress colleagues or friends who insisted they hadn’t been in sweatpants for months – they’re just jeans, guys).
I have stretchy skinny pairs and vintage-inspired chunky pairs; I have jeans that I use regularly on long car trips and others that I will suffer for style, fully aware that they will in fact be uncomfortable from time to time. You name the situation, I have denim for that.
As such, I came to my Liverpool flares (the ‘Hannah’) both a bit of a category pundit and a snob – and fell in love from the moment I put them on. Rough or stiff material will never be more apparent than when replacing something as soft as yoga pants, and I was amazed to think the jeans actually felt better than my leggings.
Instead of that regrettable hue of wishing I had stayed in my workout clothes, I was thrilled to be in jeans. It wasn’t just that I felt more officially ready for the day (real clothes are always good for that), but how good they felt: like a glove but without the tightness that usually accompanies new jeans. . I could bend, sit, and stretch like I’d worn them for hours already, but the figure was fresh out of the laundry. (I give credit to Hannah’s composition of cotton, lyocell, spandex and polyester.)
Other items on the pros list: the color, a perfectly faded black; a flared cut that flutes above the ankle bone but doesn’t approach bell bottom territory; and a frayed hem that looks realistic, not fabricated. These are the kind of little factors and details that go into making a great pair of jeans (or ruining an otherwise acceptable pair), and I’m happy to report that Liverpool delivered on all fronts.
The price can’t be ignored either – and under $100 keeps them more affordable than some of the more expensive pairs in my collection. The brand itself is also designed to make us feel good – it puts eco-consciousness first and has even signed the United Nations Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action, a group that aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
Overall, they are a winner and a new rotational favorite.
