During our visit to the Henry & Belle showroom to see the spring 2013 line, we were introduced to Henry & Belle’s wonderful new charity program, aimed at giving back to communities in need around the world. It’s called The Right Amount of Give, and it’s a program designed to create connections between the customer’s and the recipients of the company’s charitable donations. “We wanted to give our customers the opportunity to have a say in how and where we donate and keep them informed about how they’re helping us change people’s lives”, says Rob Mann, Henry & Belle’s founder.
In addition to allowing its customers to have a say in where the company donates, Right Amount of Give offers Henry & Belle’s customers the option to receive updates directly from recipients about how the company’s donations are affecting them, bringing the idea of giving back full circle. Once you purchase your jeans and log onto the site you’ll be greeted with these instructions:
“With every sale of Henry & Belle, a portion is set aside for charitable causes—your purchase code gives you a voice in how we give. Once you’ve chosen a cause, we can send you updates from the recipients. Your voice matters. So, choose with care.”
By participating in a simple 3 step process, the customer has the opportunity to be a part of Henry & Belle’s story and give their style an extra sense of purpose.
Visit Henry & Belle now to pick your favorite pair of jeans and give to a good cause. We did, and it felt great.

Industry innovators Hudson Jeans are taking printed denim to the next level by using Photoreal imagery in a range of digitally printed jeans. Sounds amazing, right? It is. As you see in the prints below, they’re blowing past brands using repeated floral patterns and animal prints by working with full blown landscapes and intricate gradients. ”Prints are everywhere, so we wanted to find a new technique that would allow us to be more aspirational and forward,” Hudson creative director Ben Taverniti told Style.com.
These babies will be available at Hudson Jeans on February 28th. Mark your calendars.

Recently, Denim Therapy stopped by the Earnest Sewn showroom in Los Angeles, housed at Michelle Marie PR, which also manages many other fashion brands including Level 99 Jeans, John Varvatos eyewear, and Junk Food Clothing. It was exciting to see some great colors and treatments coming in for Spring 2013. In particular, be on the lookout for some amazing laser-etched patterns, taken off the pages of an interior decorator’s handbook. Oh, and keep your attention on Level 99 jeans: we saw some amazing jeans that we know you’ll love for the holiday parties. Check out some of the photos from our visit!
And don’t forget: Earnest Sewn is having a party on Monday, November 12, at their NYC location in the Meatpacking District. Good times and denim fashion for all.

Raleigh Denim‘s husband and wife design team Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko mingled through a lively crowd at their first NYC store opening party, with everyone from raw denim lovers to bloggers and It-crowd staples in the mix. Patrons drank home-grown Raleigh moonshine from glass tanks suspended from the ceiling and spun a denim ferriswheel below a grid structure speckled with paper airplanes. Sound amazing? There was also popcorn. Check out party pics below.
Be sure to visit Raleigh (211 Elizabeth Street) and score yourself an amazing pair of jeans from their (always) limited edition line.

What if you could update your Facebook and Twitter status without being too obvious? You know who you are! Italian denim brand Replay Jeans will release their Social Denim for men and women—in skinny and baby boot cut fits—for the masses in December. Using Bluetooth technology, the wearer simply clicks on a button to update various mood choices without having to look down. Sly! We think the jeans look pretty good, but we’re not so sure about the device hanging in front of the coin pocket. Would you wear this?
Replay Social Denim will be available in December for US$193-$255. Via AMUSEMENT?.
