There is such a thing as the perfect pair of pants.

When I was younger, I remember picking up a pair of $10 jeans from Forever 21 and thinking I hit the jackpot. I mean come on, a great fitting pair of pants for that cheap? How could I resist? Then after a few wears, you realize why they were so cheap - they don't hold their shape with multiple wears and the fabric is so thin you start to notice holes appearing. I'm not saying I don't still wear them from time to time...I'm just saying they aren't the best long-term investment.

Then, after I graduated and moved into the city, I started to appreciate investing in great quality pieces that last for years on end. And now, thanks to the lovely Alvin Valley team, I now own a pair of pants that have blown my mind.  I've read about Alvin being "the King of Pants" and I didn't know whether or not I should actually take that seriously. After all, how many restaurants do you see claiming they have the "Best Pizza in the City"? All of the restaurants. But these pants are tailored so perfectly and the cut actually flatters and accentuates my figure. A higher rise in the back, a bit of a dip in the front, the zipper on the side, and a bit of stretch near the stomach? The equation for the perfect pair of pants.

Alright Alvin, you win this round. Teach me your ways. They're relaunching their e-commerce site today with their Spring-Summer collection, so go check it out and get ready for a lot of clothing lust coming your way.

  2. Those look fantastic on you, and I completely agree with the investment pieces. I really firmly believe that out of everything in your closet, pants and jeans need to be high quality and it's worth it to pay for higher quality items.

  7. I love the kind of outfits that I want to describe as "simple" or "basic" but those words don't seem adequate!!! There's something so satisfying about solids and clean shapes.

  8. Those sound like the perfect pants. So jealous. I would love a higher rise in the back especially when lots of pants are usually low rise!
