Unless you are a Free People model, chances are you struggle to find the perfect pair of jeans right off of the rack.
I love AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans. They do require a trip to the tailor in the standard inseam, but as far as cropped denim goes, it's typically the perfect length.
The only problem with AG jeans is that they cost a student loan payment... At least when you buy them at full price.
Crosswynds Traders now carries a healthy selection of clothing and accessories from Free People and Anthropologie--I was ecstatic to find a pair of AG Stevie Ankle jeans. The best part? They were only a fraction of the retail price.
