Denim Deals: Kasil Jeans Sale at Secret Style

How do $50 Kasil jeans sound to you?  Well, hurry up and get ’em at Secret Style, the new online “member’s only” shopping club.  The prices are great, even though you weigh it against their $9.95 shipping fee.  Hey, that’s still Kasil jeans for under $60.  In my book, these prices will keep me in the black (and oh so stylish) during these economically challenging times.  You’ll find men’s and women’s slim and looser-cut jeans.  Hurry!  Only a couple of days left in the sale!

Denim Deals O.C.: Citizens of Humanity Sale

This Orange County Citizens of Humanity sample sale sounds larger than the one I attended over a week ago in Los Angeles. And, they have actual communal dressing rooms to boot.  Such a relief to not change in front of male staffers who watch you change while taking a bite out of their sandwich during lunch time.

The Deets
Citizens of Humanity Sample Sale
Saturday & Sunday, Nov. 22-23, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
OC Fair – Bldg. 12
88 Fair Dr, Costa Mesa, CA  92626
Over 15,000 items: denim, tops, skirts, jackets, hoodies and more for men and women at up to 80% off.
Their regular sale will also be at the event.

*Sample sale shopping tip #1:
Particularly for non-denim items, watch out for missing zippers, buttons, mismatched cuffs, and holes, as not everything is first quality.

*Sample sale shopping tip #2:
If you are shy about changing in front of others in the communal dressing room, come dressed in leggings or tights, paired with a long top or sweater. You’ll be able to slide on your jeans without taking anything off.

Sign Up at The Warehouse Sale for more info. and to RSVP.

Alias Premium Denim: The $40 Jean

In an effort to maintain my sometimes expensive hobby of shopping for premium denim, I decided to search high and low for some good deals on good jeans.  Times are tough!  I certainly did not want to go downtown and look for counterfeit jeans.  No!  I never thought I would actually find a denim company that specializes in a good pair of standard premium denim that costs less than $50 — until now.  How do $40 premium denim sound to you?  If you haven’t heard of Alias Premium Denim, then let me introduce you to your new best denim friend.  Alias Premium Denim have produced jeans that are “superior in design, fit and fabric, as well as superior in value.” Based in New York, this company keeps their costs low by using overseas manufacturers.  Don’t boo and hiss.  It’s $40 jeans.  Founder Karyn Scholack wanted to create jeans for all the other girls out there that want to look HOT without burning a hole in their jean pocket.”  In these money-tight times, inexpensive jeans are a welcome respite from $200 jeans.

Alias Premium Denim is still very underground.  They have been spotted at targeted trunk shows at a few college campuses across the country.  Although it seems they used to sell a couple of styles, Alias is now focusing on their standard, best-selling Sweet Dee jean.  It’s a basic bootcut jean in a dark rinse, featuring whiskers and sanding.  Back pockets are embroidered in their dark squiggle.  And, with 10 oz. denim, the jeans are sturdy enough for the winter months, but soft enough to kick up your heels.  You really can’t go wrong with these $40 jeans.  Oh Karyn, I hope you decide to produce skinny jeans, too.  I would so be your denim slave!

After spending an entire day breaking in my pair of Sweet Dees, I can assure you they are worth it.  The denim is soft and cut generously.  Alias Denim currently only offers just a few even sizes. [A word of caution: if you’re in between sizes, you’re out of luck.]  I also love the fact that the yoke (back waist area) is cut higher, so I don’t feel exposed when I sit down or bend over.  I felt like I was wearing expensive jeans, but they weren’t.  I honestly could not tell the difference, that’s how much I like ’em.

From Fashion Week Daily: Earnest Sewn Expands

New Los Angeles flagship to open at 'Town Tire' on Beverly

Tuesday, November 04, 2008


Earnest Sewn may have just recently opened a Malibu outpost, but

they've already got a new project in the works: in February 2009, a new

6000 square foot Los Angeles Earnest Sewn flagship is slated to open on

Beverly Blvd. and Garner. True to form, the store will have plenty of

character; currently, the site is 'Town Tire,' and the retailer plans

to preserve the institution by keeping the rotating tire sign and the

giant tire sign on top of the building, and replacing the roll-up

garage doors with a glass versions. The New York-based company will be

sending some hometown sweets to the new flagship; a 1200 square foot

Babycakes NYC bakery will be built at the location, and there will be

outdoor patio space, where customers can eat their vegan cupcakes. The

entire space will be designed by Earnest Sewn president and designer,

Scott Morrison, and will include a raised Japanese garden pathway

throughout the store, giant petrified trees supporting the ceiling,

industrial fixtures, and 1900s-era artifacts. And of course, in

addition to the jeans, the concept/lifestyle store will offer Sol

Moscot Spectacles, Case & Son's Knives, Phaidon limited edition

books, and more.
