The Duchess of Cambridge is often seen in polished separators and stunning evening gowns, so on occasions where she is seen wearing more casual attire, the world notices it.

On a special occasion in 2021, fans of the future Queen Consort got an insight into the royal’s everyday wardrobe when she shared a picture in – gasp – jeans and a T-shirt.

While receiving her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine back in May 2021, Kate looked effortlessly smart in a ribbed H&M t-shirt and a pair of jeans from the Swedish brand & Other Stories.

The then 39-year-old was wearing a pair of the brand’s Favorite Cut Jeans, which sell for $ 89 USD / $ 111 CAD.

Until recently, & Other Stories did not ship to Canada, but all that changed with their recently launched international shipping site.

Since they had already received the stamp of approval from the stylish royal self, I had to try them out and see how they perform in real life. I quickly bought a pair for myself and carried them around the house for a day of work from home, and here’s what I was thinking.

The details

According to the website & Other Stories, “The Favorite Cut is everything you’re looking for in a pair of classic jeans.” They are made from 99 percent organic and recycled cotton and have 1 percent stretch for a comfortable fit.

The jeans have a high waist, slim legs and come in two versions: standard (shop here) and cropped (shop here). The standard jeans come in women’s sizes 24 to 32 and in 28 and 30 inch inner seams.

While it is unclear exactly which version Kate Middleton wore on her infamous Instagram photo, the jeans have quickly become a hit among both bloggers and shoppers.

First impression

Since I’m just about 5’3 “tall and had never tried denim from & Other Stories before, I chose a pair of Cropped Favorite Cut Jeans to be sure. They were also out of my usual jeans size at the time. I bought them, so I went for a size up – and boy am I glad I did.

Unlike many other retailers, there are no reviews on the site & Other Stories that can help guide your purchase. If there was one place where I could write a note for future shoppers, it is that these jeans are definitely small. It’s a lucky accident that I ended up with the right size on the first try, but had I bought my usual size 26, I probably would have had to return them for a larger size.

Despite the hint of stretch, I found that these jeans still have a pretty stiff feel. Depending on your preference, it may be a draw, but I usually prefer denim that is a bit softer.

While I was a big fan of the length that hit my ankle perfectly, I found that these jeans were more tailored than I had expected, especially through the hips and thigh area. That said, I think they would be a good choice for someone who wants to lighten up their skinny jeans in the direction of a wider leg cut, which may be why they’re a hit with Kate Middleton – the Duchess is often seen while she cradles her. go to skinnies.

Last thoughts

All in all, Favorite Cut Jeans may have fallen a bit below my expectations, but they are still pretty good jeans. I love that they are made from recycled and organic cotton, making them a more sustainable choice than other jeans out there.

They are also quite comfortable once you get used to the traditional denim material, and I have a feeling that these are the kind of jeans that just get better with wear. While they may not have become my new favorites yet, you can shop them in several colors below to judge for yourself.
