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.

Up Close: Public School’s New York-Made Mens’ Denim Line


We spend 8 hours per day looking at denim: the jeans Denim Therapy customers send to our office from every corner of the world in order to salvage them after years of loyal “favorite jeans” service.  After so many run-ins with jeans from different brands and price points, you start to understand the meaning of true craftsmanship and high quality manufacturing. The trained denim-lover’s eye starts appreciating when garments are executed with integrity without sacrificing the details that set jeans apart.

It’s this kind of integrity that makes us love Public School and their newly launched men’s denim line. That their latest presentations at Milk Studios and at the James Hotel showcased polished and refined jeans. All of them are made in New York City. The collection brings together local textiles as well as  Italian and Japanese raw denim in styles and cuts already are a signature of the city we live in. Our favorites were the PS 13 All natural white 10.5 Oz Cone jeans and the PS14 Indigo Selvedge, made from 100% white oak mill 13.75 oz denim. This is a brand that the CFDA already has on their radar, and we believe  every New Yorker should start collecting wardrobe staples from their line up.
