As I’ve told you in this post already, I’m a big fan of a good pair of denim. To me, there’s hardly anything as versatile as jeans. Over the years I’ve tried several different brands and styles. When I was a teenager the only jeans brand I wanted to wear was Miss Sixty and I felt so damn cool in them. Later on, I totally fell for 7 for all mankind which I got to know when I was in NYC with my Mom for the first time. However, one jeans brand that has accompanied me all my life and I have neglected ever since is Closed. Back in the late 90s Closed jeans were my Mom’s favorite. With their signature style – the x-pocket jeans with a high waist, relaxed fit, tapered leg and cropped length – those jeans were hot hot hot. I remember as if it was yesterday how back then I told my Mom how super lame and embarrassing those jeans are, and I tried to convince her to wear low-cut bell trousers with some glitter on them. My Mom politely rejected my suggestion and assured me, one day I’d love those kind of jeans, too. I protested vigorously and was certain that day would never come. Never ever would I wear those “carrot trousers”, as I used to call them. Time has passed and as always, of course my Mom was right and the day has come! I just bought my first pair of Closed jeans two weeks ago in Vienna, and I’ve been living in them since. What shall I tell you? My Mom was so right: they fit like a glove, they shape your body instantly and just make you feel damn cool – almost as cool as back then as a teenie, just better. To me, the term “Mom Jeans” is totally clear now.
Lucky me, my Mom still has some of her old Closed jeans which I’m excited to try on the next time I’m at home (fyi, Mamsi!).
