I’ve been looking for white high-rise jeans for months – they were out of stock everywhere! I finally found two pairs online, so I ordered both to compare. They are so similar it’s uncanny (esp. considering these are two different brands) but I’m declaring right jeans the winner. The pocket lining is beige instead of bright white (so they don’t show through), they are a shorter length so no need to roll them up (I’m 5’7″), and the rise is about an inch lower, which looks like it’s hitting me in a better spot. Do I sound like I’m a denim expert? Not even a little bit. Pictures tell a story that looking in a mirror doesn’t, and it wasn’t until I saw the photos that I really knew what’s up. If you’re trying on jeans, don’t be afraid to ask someone to snap a couple photos for you, it helps so much!! (And ps. I ordered the same size in both, but the left jeans run a tad big, so size down if you’re in between.)
