Bobson Jeans: Putting the Pure Japanese Denim to the Test

I have said once before how denim jeans and I haven't always been the best of friends. Happy (and lucky!) are those of the body type made for jeans and can look perfect in whatever style. I, unfortunately, am not one of them. And so, the search for the perfect jeans for me has been, for the most part, an exhaustive (often futile) exercise.

Blame me not therefore if I approached the event invitation to the launching of Bobson Jeans, touted as "pure Japanese denim", with tempered optimism at best - hoping to be pleasantly surprised but half expecting to come from it disappointed.

As it turned out, the event itself was among one of the best I've attended and certainly one of the most well organized! It was held at Sakura by Edo San in Makati where about a dozen or so bloggers were treated to a sumptuous seven-course Japanese dinner. Over dinner, Bobson's marketing reps told us more about the Bobson brand, which is not to be confused with a same named local brand being phased out to make way for this all-Japanese brand.

Bobson we are told was founded by Toshiharu Ozaki in Japan;s Okayama prefecture in 1969, giving it over five decades of solid Japanese denim heritage, so that every piece from Bobson's collection is "made with great attention to detail and commitment to quality." Bobson jeans are said to be all about "simple sophistication - clean, modern, stylish designs that boast of excellent craftsmanship." Racks of Bobson jeans and apparel were set up for bloggers to check out. Indeed, a closer look showed the fine quality of  workmanship.

The real test, however, was putting on the jeans and finding a great top to go with it! My great search for the perfect jeans has taught me this: wearing jeans is all about concealing flaws and accentuating assets. Given that, my best bet would be a pair of high-rise jeans.  Since my upper body is longer than my lower end, high-rise jeans make my legs look longer. They also accentuate my backside, which I've been told is an asset.

For this look, I'm wearing Bobson's Ria jeans, which has a 9.5-inch high rise. I paired it with their white soft cotton top with bat sleeves.

My verdict:
The great thing about this pair of jeans is that it is so light and comfortable, it feels like second skin. It is streamlined but stylish! Definitely a keeper!
