I don't know about you, but I think you've got to have a strange sort of body shape to have cheap mondays fit you well. I consider myself pretty well proportioned, but when I have tried to wear cheap mondays, the legs are wayy to tight and the waist is wayy to big. Can't say they're my faves.
I heard loads of good things about Cheap Mondays.. So I listened, and I bought. They were by no means as great as the rumours..
My illusions of grandeur were shattered. They didn't fit my frame, which isn't a particular crazy frame, I'm fairly average.. I'm tall and curvy.. They just looked slack and sat like a wet bag. And for the price.. They've got nothing on GAP.
I have two pairs, a high-waisted one and a low-waisted other. The low-waisted are just perfect, specially for winter, I can't wear them when it's hotter. However, I never wear the high-waisted ones 'cause they're not so comfy (and also because they're red and I don't feel like wearing color jeans anymore).
Anyway I think it is a really good brand for jeans.
buy cheap monday's jeans and stuff
ive been hesitant on buying cheap mondays because i heard mixed reviews. there was a sample sale in ny, cheap mondays for like $10, yes $10! bunch of sizes but once you passed size 24-25, they were about $20-30. i got tight skinnies and narrow ones, i really liked these amongst the 3489483023 ones there. the quality isnt that great because i tried a pair on and BAM! the back ripped! and i'm like a 24-25. the zipper can be a little rough. overall, theyre pretty okay but knowing that they could rip like that, maybe its not worth the $65-70+ range. i havent worn them enough to know the durability. i like bdg's more?
I live in France and the first good brand of tight jeans that came here was Cheap Monday and since 3 or 4 years I only wear Cheaps and i recommend them to you !
I put 4/5 at comfort because if you take the high waisted one it hurts a bit when you have fine legs and large hips ! but the low waisted one are the best ! And I put 4/5 at durability because some of mine have some holes but I think it's only the material of the black ones. i never had any problem with my blue jeans they still look perfect even after 3 years wearing them !! :)
Last year, I tried chip monday jeans in an outlet in Singapore...Actually, I love the model & color...but, unfortunately, it doesn't suit me...
1. the length -- too long I think (my body is petite ^^)
2. the cutting -- not comfy to wear
so, I conclude that cheap monday is best worn by western
I think there fabric runs a bit thin, and at times they can be "high waisted" but over all they are good for the price and are extremely chic!
I love love cheap mondays. I didn't know you could get from TKMaxx though ^^
I love mine but the colour ran alot the first time I washed them.
It could just be that the higher-waisted fit of these jeans is not my thing, but I have never had any luck with Cheap Mondays. They don't fit me well at all and aren't very comfortable, which is too bad because the price is right!
