Finding a good pair of black jeans sounds like an easy proposition, but I have found it harder than I imagined and have had a few failed attempts. Many of the washes aren’t dark enough, most have too much stretch so they look like leggings. These, from Zara seem promising. They are 100% cotton, have a higher waist and a wider, more modern leg. I do tend to prefer vintage Levi’s, but am not a jean snob–a good jean is a good jean.
