When I introduced posts as part of a denim guide last week, I had so many ideas of what kinds of posts I wanted to do. I think I could post solely on denim for at least three weeks, but that would be a bit out of control! Besides showing you some of my favorite ways to wear jeans, I wanted to showcase some of my favorite denim brands. There are quite a few brands I want to share, but I had to start with 7 For All Mankind.
My first pair of designer jeans was from them and so was my boyfriend’s first pair (I have a bad influence sometimes). I could go on and on about 7 FAM jeans, but I want to keep these spotlights pretty straightforward and simple. So here is my 7 For All Mankind Fit + Review post…
7 For All Mankind Fit + Review
7 for all Mankind Fit Review | cuts/washes
7FAM jeans come in a wide variety of cuts and washes. They might not have exactly what you’re looking for, but it’s a great place to start. The website also has a fit guide to help you figure out what cut works for you. (see more below)
7FAM Cost + Sales
Most of their jeans cost between $160 and $225. They do have much more exciting pairs of denim that sell for much more, but we’ll just deal with the basics.
The price tag is high for me, so I really only buy them on sale…
First, there are at least two Friends & Family 7 for all Mankind sale dates to keep in mind – October and in the spring. The sale gives you 30% off anything in the store.
My best advice is to sign up for the newsletters for 7FAM and your favorite retailers. Then you won’t miss out.
7 for all Mankind Styles
Long before I bought my first pair of “7s,” I tried on a pair that felt so thin, I couldn’t imagine why anyone would buy them.
A few years later I tried on another pair that were perfectly amazing. I bought them, wore them through, and bought the exact same pair again. So, be aware that their different styles really vary; you have to find what works for you.
One thing to help you keep them straight is the pocket guide (above). In my experience the 7 and A pockets (bottom row) tend to be thinner and less form-fitting. The plain and signature pockets (top row), however, are sturdier and have a snugger fit (which I prefer).
