T-Styled Me Answered: Black Jeans that don’t fade

Hey Guys! How was your weekend? I spent weekend braving the cold trying out the food at Broadway market in Hackney where I chose to give into my Vietnamese craving for some ‘Banh Mi Thit’ (a traditional Vietnamese crunchy bread roll filled with pickled veggies and grilled meat of your choice). If you’re Vietnamese like me or live in Melbourne, you’ve no doubt had one these from the Western or Eastern suburbs and if you’re as old as me, can probably reminisce about the days when we called the rolls ‘Two dollar bread.’ They’re about four dollars now (I gobbled down as many as I could when I was back in Melbourne) and in London, they’re a rip off at £5 and sadly, no where near as good.

Anyway, I seem to always digress … I’ve received a few questions through my blog/tumblr so wanted to share the answers with you guys:

Hi Tien… as a fellow Aussie gal, I really enjoy reading your posts and I love your sense of style. My question is actually really simple… Can you recommend a good brand for a pair of black skinny jeans that doesn’t fade! I am looking for something skinny (though not super skinny), comfy, doesn’t break the bank, is jet black and stays jet black! Thanks x

Hiya! Aww thanks, I’m glad you’re enjoying my posts :) I always imagine only a few of my friends reading my blog so it’s lovely to hear from readers! You know what, I actually don’t own a pair of ‘real’ black denim jeans – I have every other variation known to man (jeggings, supersoft skinny jeans etc) and I haven’t tried many jeans back in Australia for while to recommend to you however…

From personal experience, I’ve found Saba jeans the best quality for a reasonable price (approx $129) that fit my shape (I prefer high rise compared to mid rise) are comfortable and have kept their shape for years. I currently live in these  (termed jeggings but have enough structure to be considered jeans). I have heard that Saba have had bad batches of these jeans so as a warning just to be on the safe side, speak to the staff to see if there have been any issues (I bought mine 8 months ago and didn’t experience any but just in case they’ve changed dyes recently). These are the ones I’m wearing below:
