Being five feet tall is something Sarah at Denim Therapy has come to terms with in her 29 years. She makes Eric get the jeans that are on the high shelves, and she has become an expert at standing on chairs when necessary. But, when she discovered Swedish denim company d.brand made jeans in her perfect waist size, she decided it was time to stop rolling her hems and get jeans that actually fit. Watch her talk about the revelation she had and get a sneak peak into the Denim Therapy office where all the magic happens.

VOGUE paid tribute to the time-honored combo of a cool pair of jeans and a big comfy sweater in their latest denim-oriented slideshow, led by a stunning image of model/muse Abbey Lee Kershaw. We thought some of the combos were a little unlikely, but there are some no-fail looks in here too. See all of them below.

Who says that denim can’t be the starting point for rad art? Attitude had the great idea of distributing ten classic denim jackets to ten different artists–from graffiti artist Mr. Shiz to multimedia artist Danny Sangra–and then photographing the results. The aptly-named “Ten Jackets by Ten Artists” editorial in the magazine’s January 2012 issue shows us jackets that are so not the norm; they’ve been spray-painted, dyed, studded, and reworked in nearly every manner possible. Check out all of the funky fresh looks below!

For their spring/summer collection, BLEND isn’t going the sunny, sherbet-tinged route that we all know and expect (but still love!). Instead of designing for a day at the beach, the European brand is channeling Parisian springtime. Imagine traipsing through verdant lawns and sunny skies in their slightly boyish outfits, topped off with a precisely applied pop of red lipstick. Sounds great, right? The line focuses on pared down looks, from a dark-rinse A-line dress to gamine–approved cuffed skinnies and striped shirts. The menswear selection is equally cool, drawing inspiration from New England dockyard workers, but looks no less polished. You can tell they’d go great together!

Twelveounce Denim Lab is a men’s denim line that sources all of their fabrics from the esteemed Japanese Kaihara denim mill, hand-crafting their jeans in LA before releasing them into the market. At first look, the unique back pocket shape & zip detail and a tailored-yet-rugged aesthetic set them apart. The jeans come in three basic cuts: the skinny, the boot, and the straight leg (we’re partial to the skinny), and options for washes include Kaihara Indigo, Kaihara Midnight, and Kaihara Slate. The gents of Denim Therapy will be trying these on first-hand to let you know how they fit.
Check out the lookbook and some exclusive shots of the line below:
