1) What is the difference between a silhouette and a skinny? 
Both have the same cut on the waistband, but the silhouette has a narrower cut on the leg. The silhouette is the super skinny jeans, and the skinny is a classic skinny fit.
2) What is the difference between a chino fit and a slim fit? 
Our chino fit is more wider at the thighs and narrow at the calves. The slim fit has a secure mid rise and straight legs, slightly wider than the classic skinny.
3) What is the difference between a Monroe fit and a Silhouette fit? 
Monroe is a cropped length skinny jean, the silhouette is available in cropped length as well as long length. Please check the product pages for full details.
4) What is the difference between sateen and light sateen? 
Sateen is a slightly thicker and heavier fabric developed specifically for the colder months. Light weight sateen is a thinner and lighter weight fabric perfect for the warmer months.
5) What size should I get? 
Please consult our fit guide.

Postage for mainland UK is via a courier service, and will usually be despatched (at the latest) next working day on a 24 hours service. So in most cases your new jeans will be with you 2-5 working days. Your order history will display it's status. We do not despatch on Saturdays or Sundays.
