Chip Foster: Jeans So Good You Could Wear Them Inside-Out #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


Chip Foster prides his jeans on having exquisite construction and execution, which means clean lines and a beautiful “skeleton”. To see the premium detail in the tailoring of each pair, you have to turn them inside-out. In fact, the brand is proud enough of their attention to quality that they encourage customers to turn them inside-out and inspect!

You may recognize Chip Foster—he’s the creative director at large at Chip and Pepper denim jeans. “This is my new baby, my new line invitation only for the best selected stores that I love. There was no need to create another line… it was not needed but wanted.” And so, infusing his heritage and a bit of the Chip and Pepper DNA, he created a new line of jeans for the die hard denim lover. “Our quality isn’t expensive,” he tells us, “it’s priceless.”

Check out our favorite Chip Foster jeans below.

TORTOISE Jeans Highlights Sustainability In Denim #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


TORTOISE Jeans has sharpened the focus on sustainability in one of the most environmentally harmful (yet paramount) steps in the process of constructing jeans: the wash. They’ve blown traditional wash methods out of the water (no pun intended), establishing their own wash facility where they develop and implement eco-friendly alternative techniques to achieving their desired finished product.

As for the name?

“The tortoise is a land-dwelling reptile that moves about at a slow and steady pace. They are herbivores that consume extremely low volumes of water. While tortoises can live to be a century old, they have an extremely low ecological impact on the environment throughout their lifetime. These gentle creatures have long been revered as a symbol of wisdom, determination, patience and longevity.”

Nudie Jeans Co. Does Bold Colored Denim For Men This Spring


Spring 2013 for Nudie Jeans Co. means bold colors like burnt lemon yellow, teal, and rich maroon. Colored denim for men is making a big comeback through hues specifically catered to dudes. Nudie is making a “sartorial statement of the brand’s culture, bringing vibrant color and fun to your wardrobe. Each jean will live the wearers life, bleed and fade just like any denim wash.”  Additionally, a classic range of organic blue jeans ranging in color from light-wash white to deep indigo are available.

Agave Denim Men’s Jeans: It’s All In The Details


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.

Kuro Denim Stays True To Their Tailored x Vintage Aesthetic


Last time we linked up with Kuro, they showed us a gradient of denim washed, aged, and treated for different lengths of time, and told us the best way to wear distressed vintage jeans was with a tailored blazer and a crisp, clean button-down. Sound advice that doesn’t expire, it turns out, since we ran into them this week and they were keeping with their vintage meets tailored aesthetic. “Denim for the Yohji fan,” they explained, showing us a dapper mannequin outfitted in the customer image. Selvedge trimmed back pockets, top-stitching, and other details characterize this impressive Japanese brand. Check them out online for more on their philosophy and products.

Fake It Till You Break It: Earnest Sewn Offers Convincing Distressed Denim


Got a cellphone with sharp edges? Or a cellphone that you’ll use for the next three years? We didn’t think so. But you don’t need either of these things if you’ve got a pair of Earnest Sewn’s expertly distressed men’s jeans. Unlike obvious “artistic” distressing you’ll see in some lines, their jeans have subtle, rugged details like a worn-in cell-in-pocket facade and a bit of ripping near the hem. Denim Therapy may be in the business of fixing holes in jeans, but we’re no less impressed when a brand creates good, authentic distressing for the sake of style.

Jean.Machine X Missoni Collaborate For AW13


Jean.Machine unveiled an exciting collaboration with Missoni during the men’s AW13 runway show last week in Milan. Jean.Machine’s signature styles were re-worked to feature iconic Missoni knit patterns (an amazing alternative to men’s colored denim for those who want to side-step obvious trends this year) on details such as pockets. Another favorite, the JM 4 jacket, was redesigned to include a detachable Missoni wool waistcoat on the inside. All styles will be available in early June from the Jean Machine website, Missoni stores worldwide, and other select retail locations.
