Great quality but odd fit

Love everything I've ever got from Finisterre but these jeans are just a bit odd in their fit. They're incredibly high waisted and seem to be higher at the front somehow – it may just be on my body, but I'm quite tall and have a long body. They feel great and are a lovely colour and material, but I think I will sadly have to return for a refund.

Real denim!

These feel like the jeans I remember. Fabulous fit and so comfortable to wear. My daughter in law thought they looked brilliant. The fabric feels stiff to touch but not at all when they have been on for 5 minutes. I’ve washed them once, no shrinkage! Hurrah for Blackburn made denims!

Wow! What a pair of jeans

I'll admit, when I unpacked these I was a little nervous about the sizing they seem fair bit too big. But after a mild wash they did shrink and now they look amazing.

Great high waist and relax fit leg gives them a classic appeal. Yep, they are expensive but what you get is a pair of quality Jean's that for me will go on & on & on & on, which fits with the Finisterre ethos. They are certainly not disposable fashion, they are a lifestyle choice to 'buy once, buy well'.

If I only buy 1 new pair of Jean's every few years, from now on they will always be from Finisterre, everything else is false economy.
