Express makes a black jean in 00 long. It's the Stella and I just checked their website, and it's not in stock right now. The description says they low-rise, but they're really not. The Zelda on the other hand is very low, stay away from those. I'm in kind of the same predicament, I currently only have two pairs of jeans that fit me, sort of. I have the Stella one's from Express in black, they are a 0 regular. FYI, they don't sell 00 in the stores, online only. I don't even know where to turn for jeans. My 7 (seven?) jeans, which I paid a fortune for, swimming in them. My Joe's Jeans, same thing. I will pay anything for a good pair of jeans, I had over 40 pairs, now just two.

P.S. The last time I wax in Express, I saw a tall, beautiful skinny girl browsing around. I basically accosted her and asked her where she buys jeans. She said she gets hers from Buckle.com. She was about 4 inches taller than me and much skinnier. I almost asked her if she was a SG member, I just had a strong suspicion she was. It's been a while since I've laid eyes on someone so tall and skinny.:bow:
You're a superstar :kiss: thank you!

@Agytha Try Cheap Monday! They have every kind of denim you can imagine, from raw to super stretchy and since it's a European brand they run small (compared to US brands). I have the black Second Skin jeans and the black Tight and love them both. Second Skin somewhat lycra-y though so you might want to try the Tight

Short skinny gurls can get away with kids jeans sometimes, that's what I do, at least! They have the added benefit of being less expensive, too. It can depend a bit on the cut how well they fit and all, but I've had great luck finding pairs that work for me that way. Otherwise, Social Distortion has very skinny sizes and work well for me.

Can anyone recommend some jeans that are (wait for it :p ):
- black
- not ripped or multi-tonal or anything
- skinny
- mid or high waisted
- stiff denim (I don't mind a bit of stretch but I hate-hate-hate the feeling of too stretchy jeans or -eck!- jeggings :superpuke:)
- long (I am 5'10.5" and I have a 36" inseam :rolleyes: makes for fun pant shopping because everything I try gives my ankles the chilly-willies!)
- small in sizing (my waist is ~22.5" and full lower hip is ~34")

If anyone could point me in the direction of a brand or the like, I would love you forever :kiss: even if it just ticks a few of the above criteria. As it is, I have to wear my favourite jeans with boots so no-one can see how short in the leg they are :rolleyes:
I used to have a fantastic pair of high-waisted Cheap Monday jeans that had no stretch in them and they were tiny. They were so tiny and tight I used to use a plastic bag to get my feet though the ankles :lol: They were quite long too, although I'm not sure if they would be long enough for you, but I'm not sure if you can get them any more. I wore them until they turned grey (pretty much every day for at least two or three years) and they never stretched out, and fit super-well at my lowest weight. Still they are worth looking out for! The logo on the back was a patch of leather with their logo skull embossed in it.

This is wonderfully helpful, thank you :kiss:

I guess I'm going shopping! :grin:

:lol::) thanks!
Yes I've given up on finding dress pants for work, I wear only skirts because everything is too big for my bottom/thighs.

The high-rise cigarette skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters in size 24. They are absolutely TINY and fit like a glove! The only thing is most pairs cost $58, but sometimes they go on sale for $38, just gotta keep an eye out :)

Here and there
I was totally going to make a thread about this because I have the hardest time with finding jeans that fit me! Thank you so much for making this thread!
I asked my ex where she buys her jeans because she's super tiny and she said the skinny jeans from Pac Sun and American Apparel fit her best.
I have yet to attest to this but the next time I want to splurge I am buying myself some American Apparel easy jeans :luv: They've got really small sizes for us SGs ;)

:( I wish I could wear high rise/waisted jeans, but with my short torso they come up to my boobs....not the look I want :lol:

OMG I literally just got a pair like these from TJ Maxx, they were Levi's, super stiff, high waisted and all black. Although they were probably too stiff, I felt like I was putting on armor, I had to do so much work to get them on!

But literally, every single one of those qualities. But it might have been a fluke pair, there was only one, on clearance...it was an impulse buy haha

For skinnies on a budget here's a suggestion - eBay!
I got these jeans a while ago, and they are fantastic for the price! Even though a 26" waist is too big for me, the denim is very thin and soft, and still feels comfortable even cinched in with a belt (my belt of choice is a red leather moschino belt).

These would probably not be ideal for any of you really tall girls, because I've noticed they bunch at the bottom a lot less on me than normal jeans would (and i'm only 5'4"), but for the more petite members I highly recommend.

Ah! That's so funny, I was just looking at these on eBay! But I agree, they'd be quite short on us tallies (#shortprivilege #checkyourprivilege :lol:)

So, I went online and bought what I thought were the near-perfect pair of jeans (instead of black, I got a lovely wine colour but other than that, they fit the bill!).

They arrived today...

High waisted? Only just hit my hips.
Extra long inseam? Only juuuust long enough (will still limit what shoes I can wear).
Super skinny/stiff? US 00 and I can pull them out at least 1" at the hips.

:nopity:

Wahh.

At least they were on sale. ;)

I like J Brand, usually make do with a 24 (put it in the dryer so it doesn't stretch) but there's also 23.
I can't remember exactly how much I weighed when I posted this (three-ish months ago) but said J Brand skinny jeans are now like a really baggy pair of boyfriend jeans. When I wear them with a tank top or sweatshirt with messy hair I look heroin chic like a "coke whore" :nopity:
I am thinking of going to A&F but I could fit their 00 skinnies when I was about 10 lb heavier so I'm not sure if I should even try... #societyisfat

The other day I went to Urban Planet (this might only be in Canada, not sure) and I found a pair of black low rise skinny jeans, no stretch, size 00, and they're tiny. They're called the London low rise skinny jean. Usually all jeans are too big in the bum/thigh area for me, but these aren't :)

I'm not a fan of Urban Planet at all, it's like 10x cheaper then F21, but because it's such a cheap teeny bopper store I can find some small sizes. And the jeans were only $20.00 so can't go wrong lol.

Abercrombie is larger, try Hollister. If anyone else has suggestions then please voice up. But so far Hollister rules in the smallest jeans battle.

I know it isn't the, ahem, classiest of places, but Primark! I buy all my jeans from there, they last forever and fit like a glove. I think they go down to a size four (size 0 for US girls) but they're slightly tighter than other sizes. They cost about £10 I think. No one has to know where they're from ;)
