Ladies and gents, MC has a new favorite pair of jeans. The latest offerings from Williamsburg Garment Company—remember when Renee reviewed their skinny jeans as a day-to-night staple?—include a medium-wash stretch denim high-waisted skinny for women. These jeans get the high score for holding flawless shape a full day of flea market prowling and a full night of dancing. They also possess the eternally sought-after slimming effect and cool details for denim-geeks to gawk at.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
It was “Yesssss. Come to mama.” I also noticed the well proportioned back pockets (pocket size can really wreak havoc on a gal’s attempts to appear slimmer) and the cool side pocket stitching detail when I looked in the mirror. I love subtle design points that set a pair of jeans apart.
Where/when would you wear these?
I wore them to the flea market and strolling around Brooklyn, to brunch, to an insane all night dance party… no stretch or sag in the fabric. They looked and felt great. I’d wear these anywhere. I expect to get a lot of miles out of them this spring.
How’s the fit?
Love the high-rise, love the tight fit around the hips/behind, and knees. They have enough stretch for comfort but they still feel like denim, which is rare with women’s jeans. Too often it’s a free-for-all spandex blend jegging party. It’s hard to find the right balance. Aside from the feel of the fit, I was told they look great but friends and strangers while wearing them, so that probably counts for something.

Actress Ashley Benson was spotted at the GUESS Hotel Pool Party showing off her Coachella style in jeans with gaping holes in the knee. Since it’s a pool party, we kind of figure she should either take those jeans off or let us fix them up.
Check out this video of Raleigh Denim‘s Fall 2013 presentation. Raleigh Denim‘s FW13 presentation was the perfect sequel to their last spring showing. Each season they edge a bit more towards crisply tailored sportswear and Americana-inspired looks that modern and sleek. Designers Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko understand that their customer wants a combination of classic concepts and cutting edge style, which can be seen in each ensemble below. Our favorite looks included bleached, overdyed stone grey women’s jeans, a two-tone wax canvas jacket, washed wax coated jeans, and a blue tweed deconstructed blazer.
We dropped in the American Eagle & Aerie fall 2013 preview yesterday for a pastry and some AM fashion-gazing. The ever-expanding line has amp’d up selection in both the men’s and women’s departments. We were especially delighted to see a carefully played bohemian influence in the styling of chic denim separates, flirty scarves, and gorgeous jewelry. This season we’re loving the returning Artist fit jean for women who want to edge towards flare leg while keeping it chic. Check out the full preview below!

What do you know about Levi’s jeans? Online retailer Mr Porter takes us behind the scenes and inside the Levi’s Vintage Clothing brand. Denim heads will appreciate taking a peek inside the archival vaults of 100-year old garments, barely holding together in an acid-free shroud. Design Director Miles Johnson and his team documents vintage garments to faithfully capture “the spirit and heritage of American work wear,” from the San Francisco vaults, and recreates them at the LVC Amsterdam headquarters. You don’t have to go that far to get your hands on a Levi’s reproduction. Mr Porter carries some covetable denim pieces you can wear, now. Scroll down to watch the video.
There are a lot of reason crotches rip. Olympic-worthy sprinting to catch the bus, biking to work because you missed the bus… and hopefully not a dog biting you because you just biked past his territory. Whatever the case may be, we’re here to help. Check out the before & after photos of what we did for this customer’s ripped jeans when they came to us.
Not all beautiful things grow in the garden, but printed denim options are growing like wild-flowers. Okay, enough floral puns! We’re here to introduce 6 pairs of jeans that have nothing to do with floral print. They fall more into the families of polka-dots, pinstripes, and various interpretations of geometric-tribal. What they all have in common is, you can throw on a basic tee and you’ve got an outfit made.
