“To celebrate the opening of their Champs Élysées store in Paris, Levi’s has enlisted the help of DFA’s James Murphy, Pedro Winters from Ed Banger Records, Mr. Andre, and Shepard Fairey to create in-store installations, well-curated music mixes, and, yes, trucker jackets. As you can see, the results of Murphy’s and Winters’ collabs with the great American denim brand add a little wit and tempered design sense to the back panel (Murphy’s “Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic,” is especially fresh) that was once the home of so many Pushead illustrations.” (Refinery29)

As the temperature rises, so do the hemlines. And while the prospect of wearing short shorts and tank tops is welcome in the summertime humidity and heat, sometimes you want (or need!) to feel a bit more covered-up. The solution? Add a sheer, blouse-y top when wearing your favorite pair of denim shorts. Buy over-sized and tuck it in to tone down the volume. For a lot more coverage, it won’t add that much bulk or cause you to break out into heat palpitations. Win-win.

Did you know that nearly ninety percent of the men’s jeans being manufactured today have a button fly? Designers attribute this switch from the zip to things such as a chicer look to the denim, less of a chance for… ahem… injuries, and, as we can see with Brad Pitt and Justin Bieber, the security of not having a faulty zipper on the red carpet (among other places). But what if you’re a guy (or gal) shopping for new jeans and you don’t want a button fly? That’s where we come in! Denim Therapy will switch those buttons to a zipper, and give you the freedom to get in and out of your pants at least two seconds faster. Click here to get started!

Feel that insane heat and blinding sunshine? Summer’s on the way, and we’re counting down the reasons we’re excited to bust out our favorite warm weather denim for a season of super-stylish fun in the sun.
Note: We know, these tie-dye shorts are amazing. Grab them at Nasty Gal.
1. No other season permits this spectrum of neons, tie-dyes, and brightly colored jeans be set free from your closet and paraded down the boardwalk. Don’t hold back on your favorite colors, whether you favor pastels or saturated electric hues.
2. What’s scandalous in the spring is common practice in the summer. It’s the only season where your cut-off shorts can resemble a bikini bottom in shortness and no one will think twice about it.
3. DIY! Cutting, slashing, distressing, dip-dying and applique are just a few of the ways you can take a pair of jeans you loved all winter and turn them into a summer dream. Need some ideas? Try this DIY.
4. The simple perfection of the basic jeans and a t-shirt combo is amplified in the summer, and while we love fall layering, this no-fail formula that dates back to denim’s pop culture debut is still a staple in looking fresh and “classic cool”.
5. Finally, it’s great to know that while this summer’s outdoor adventures might harm your jeans—from hiking to camping on the beach, or even dancing manically at summer music festivals—we’ll be right here waiting to fix them back up for you.
Get ready for an amazing summer, and remember us if you need expert denim repair, tailoring, shopping advice, and all things denim.

Los Angeles-based Sinclair Denim may sound familiar to those who have shopped their jeans at high-end retailers like Neiman Marcus, and now, they’re back this summer with some innovative washes and treatments on jeans, bermudas and denim cutoffs. We felt like a kid at a candy store when we saw the Sinclair Spring-Summer 2012 lookbook. Its palette of foil coated jeans, deep indigos, juicy dip-dye pastels, railroad stripe and even glitter offer the woman a chance to dip her hands into any style cookie jar she chooses this summer. We are in love with Sinclair’s tasteful handling of dip dye and innovative use of foil coating. How would you rock a pair of Sinclairs?
If you want to get your hands on a pair of Sinclair Denim, try the Coe Legging Jean in Golden Lights or the Fixed Coe Skinny in Proxy (an ombré blue), both available at REVOLVE Clothing.
