BLACK CLOTHES ARE SMALLER THAN BLUE ONES (OR WHITE ONES, OR GREEN ONES, OR PURPLE ONES, ETC.)

blue vs. black c.j. jeans

perhaps this should be esme’s rule #2:  the same garment in black will be smaller than one in any other color.  this is particularly true of jeans, or anything made of cotton.  if you don’t believe me just go into any store and try on 3 different colors of your favorite jeans in your favorite size and you’ll see what i mean.  i figure it must be something about the black dye.  even my c.j. boyfriend jeans are perhaps a half size smaller in black than in dark blue.  and i have to buy my gap favorite t’s in small, whereas the gray ones are fine in x-small.  i’m sure there are exceptions to this rule; however, it’s a useful guideline to keep in mind, particularly when ordering clothes on-line.  btw, speaking of black, here’s a hint to keep your black cottons black:  the first time you wash them (in cold water), add a little white vinegar.  it will set the color and minimize fading.

go for the black,

esme
