Now that the jeans are readily available at Urban Outfitters I'm really tempted to give them another shot. Maybe mine were just stiff because I bought the dark black rinse. Maybe the lighter ones would be softer. Maybe I just need to wash them with some fabric softener. Maybe I'm crazy for even considering it.

I am so confounded about Cheap Monday jeans. I bought a pair last year when they came in to the store where I work. I'd seen them on many of the street fashion blogs and was really excited to try them out. I got a pair in dark black in my usual size. They seemed stiff but I figured a wash or two would help. To my dismay, no matter how many times I wore and washed them, they remained so stiff and uncomfortable I couldn't wait to take them off at the end of the day. If it's possible for a pair of jeans to make you feel claustrophobic, these jeans did just that. I ended up selling them on EBay.
I guess my memory of how much I hated them is wearing off because I'm beginning to reconsider them. Blame it on the Scandinavians. I love the way the jeans look in these photos. Super skinny with high waists, they look good with boots or flats, with shirt tucked in or left hanging out.
