The thing we love most about trade shows like PROJECT are how up-close we can get to the denim. We can inspect the fabric hand, design details, and special components that set brands apart from one another. Besides their adorable mini-jeans, 3×1 was equipped with the particulars to keep us around their booth for a while, from their top notch Japan-sourced denim to their made-in-the-USA finishes.

This season, the ever-innovative Jeff Shafer of Agave Denim is bringing the men’s denim line to a new level. Their men’s jeans feature novelty selvage trimmings, a unique silhouette with an emphasis on flawless fit and an underlying theme of “respecting the textiles themselves”. Our favorites? One is the Harp—a slouchy tapered leg jean in 12oz Italian denim with a herringbone texture, reminiscent of the texture found on mens industrial workwear. Everything is thought of, down to the hand-stamped English brittle leather patch.
Our second pick, the Rocker classic tapered leg in Japanese true indigo .10 oz denim. They feature a tailored look that translates well from casual wear to a more formal environment (if you’re the kind of dude who gets to wear jeans to work).
Finally, the Maverick slim cut straight leg jean is made on an Old Glory Red, White & Blue cone mill white oak shuttle loom, featuring patriotic selvage to boot. This textile is also known as Heritage vintage denim. It’s all made in America (LA, specifically), and we think it’s safe to say these pieces are setting a new standard for the men’s denim industry.

In celebration of those perfect fitting dream-jeans, we’ve put together two outfits around a pair of our favorite skinny jeans. One leands towards the flirty date night variety, while the other is a bit more rock’n’roll. Adapt this to your own to give them a stylish new lease on life.

Garance Doré is singing the aesthetic praise of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans this week on her blog, and we couldn’t agree more. The chic-yet-playful take on average denim is basic, but interesting enough to take a regular sweater-and-jeans outfit to the next level. Patchwork jeans and two-toned jeans are a huge trend for spring, so prep your closet. Add some metallic jewelry and a pair of killer heels, and you’ve got yourself a perfect NYFW look. Which, by the way, is juuuust around the corner…
Grab a pair of MiH Jeans’ color block skinny jeans asap.

On our radar today? The Marcy Stop and their ongoing denim-styling prowess. We love how they styled this pair of grey light-wash jeans with maroon ankle boots. The jeans are turned up in a dramatic cuff to accentuate the ankle area and prelude the bold red shoes. We’re loving the jacket and accessories too. Score a similar style with a pair of light-wash grey jeans by Victoria Beckham.
