The challenge of buying jeans online
Jeans might be one of the trickiest piece of garment to buy online, for it’s hard to understand how the jeans will fit.

To overcome this challenge, we created tools for users to choose the fit and select the right size by giving them all the information they need, from large images and close ups, measurments and jeans specific filters, as well as an interactive fit guide.

A playful interactive fit guide
This fit guide allows you to compare 2 pairs at once of jeans on moving models that you can control: make them turn around, jump, squat, dance, lift one leg and then the other. See the jeans worn, lived in, understand how the fabric behaves, how it moves. Get a hint of how it feels to wear them.

Attention to detail
