Earlier this year I attended the opening of New Cathedral Street's latest addition: 7 For All Mankind's Manchester store. I was super excited to be invited back to the store to choose an outfit for myself, and battled my way through the Christmas-markets-induced foot traffic to visit last weekend.
The store itself is very pleasant - clean looking with a subtle California vibe (which is where the brand originates), and very easy to shop with super friendly and helpful staff, and some nice cacti too (an essential element of any shopping experience if you ask me). The main attraction is the denim: I was immediately attracted to the 'Relaxed Skinny' as modelled by current face of the brand Miranda Kerr, but there were so many great pairs to choose from! After much deliberation I actually opted for the Josefina,
a skinny boyfriend style not all that dissimilar from the Relaxed Skinny, in a medium blue wash with some subtle distressed detail. They're relaxed and a little scruffy looking without gaping at the knee like a lot of other casual denim at the moment, and they've fast become my favourite pair of jeans - I will still stand by a black skinny jean forever, but I think these are a little more grown up (and flattering) than the 'mom' jeans that I've loved for the past few years. At £200 they're definitely an investment, but 7FAM is undoubtedly a luxury brand and the high quality will, I think, last as long as 4 pairs of £50 jeans. Fit-wise I'd recommend sizing down, particularly if you're between sizes! If you're really looking to splash out beyond denim, 7 does some amazing leather pieces including beautiful biker jackets and leather trousers too.
For the top half of my outfit I chose the comfiest dark grey cashmere jumper, but I was spoilt for choice with beautiful white and off white blouses which looked amazing with the Josefina jeans. You'll be seeing my full 7 For All Mankind outfit on the blog later this week!
