Go online at ecookie and pick out some Siwy, Dittos or Stephenson jeans of your choice. By the way, the Siwy jeans are on sale for $80-85. And for a mere fee of $25 to, say, Beverly Hills or $40 to Downtown L.A., you’ll have your fresh-off-the-shelf jeans delivered to your adoring hands “in less than 4 hours the same day.” Sorry folks, but this special courier service is currently only available in the Greater Los Angeles area. All other folks can still receive their goods via the many affordable shipping options at check out.
If you are so inclined to shop at the actual store, situated in swanky Abbott Kinney (Venice), store founder Elaine Francisco-Sachs (a former Accessories Editor for People Stylewatch) really knows how to make shopping fun for you and your male companion. While you excitedly try on a pair of jeans, he can hang out at the men’s lounge out back, and sip on an ice cold beer. If you both show up weekdays after 6:30 p.m., it’s Fashion Happy Hour at ecookie. Woo hoo! Complimentary wine and 10% off while you shop is offered. Your friend might start tagging along with you for future visits, as Francisco is working on installing a flat screen with ESPN and many other sports channels.
