Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans Review: A 90s Inspired Classic

Before I get into the Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans review, I need to share a quick story. I’ve posted my Frank & Eileen pieces on Instagram more than a few times and, each time, I receive a handful of messages from others who are on the F&E train. The story is always the same — it’s expensive, but there’s just something about it. You can tell it’s so incredible well made and wears beautifully.

Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans Review

First, let’s do some jeans level setting. I like to consider myself a jeans minimalist. I have a pair of Madewell medium blue jeans, black H&M jeans, dark blue H&M jeans (for when I need something a bit dressier), and white J.Crew jeans. With those four pairs, I can get through pretty much anything. Also, I’m not a big H&M fan, but their ultra high jeans fit me perfectly.

But I’d been in the market for a weekend pair — something casual, straight leg, with a slight 90s vibe. A lighter wash, the kind you can imagine wearing around the house while hosting friends for Saturday afternoon chili and football. You know the vibe I’m talking about?

Well, the Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans might fit the bill. They are a medium wash with a high waist and button fly. They have a casual, not too tight, effortless vibe. Something that feels like it could have been in your closet forever.

How do they fit?

I noticed some of the reviews complained they were too tight, but I took my normal size 27. If I went up, they’d look sloppy, in my opinion.

What is the fabric?

The Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans aren’t as stretchy as my usual go-to jeans, the Madewell Danny Jeans. They’re 96% Cotton, 3% Polyester, 1% Elastane, so they’re a more classic jean with slight stretch.

How do they wear?

Given the fabric makeup, I expected them to stretch out, but they haven’t stretched out substantially any time I’ve worn them, and I definitely do not wash hem but every few wears. I’m not always sold on a button fly since I’m a pear shape, which isn’t great with a button fly, but this one lays nicely.

How should you wear the Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans?

I love these jeans tucked into a boots. It’s a very Princess Diana vibe (exhibit A, exhibit B). They also look great with flats, loafers, or a even a sneaker. I prefer a shirt tucked in to show off the high waist.

Final verdict on the Frank & Eileen Everyday Jeans review: I’d definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a casual premium denim. My main complaint is actually with the style — I don’t love a raw hem, but I ended up wearing these tucked into boots most of the time, and they look great.
