i just can't.
That is entirely your fault for wearing mom jeans in high school. Old L+L was absolutely a mom jean. A decent mom jean but jesus...a 17 year old wearing them with that stupid hem at the bottom...VOMIT.
Long and lean is completely recut and is the same in name only for the most part but is still the jean for 30+ women. It looks pretty good on your average size 8 mom but it's still not a jean for women with decent figures not looking to hide a muffin top.
The always skinny and sexy boot are great cuts IMO. My GF wears both and she does so after having both Current Elliot and J Brand in her line up. I LOVE Current/Elliot but at 1/3rd the cost, the Gap jeans compete easily.
My GF also now has 3 pair of Gap boyfriend jeans. She returned her J crew selvage BFs to buy another pair of the exact same BFs she already has.
