Before I sat down with Robin Schwartz she whipped out 9 pairs of jeans from the top of her closet to be in photos. Yes, this girl was perfect for a spotlight jean closet. Robin is many things, one of my closest friends for starters, so I didn’t have to look far for a subject. Robin also hates the taste of coffee and watches the food network obsessively. Between working at Kate Spade in Soho, interning at Beyond Vintage and gearing up to start her senior year at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Robin had a few minutes to chat with me about jeans in particular.
What is your favorite brand of jeans?
Uniqlo, because they are inexpensive and don’t have a lot of ornamental details so they match with everything. Also they fit very well.
What is your go to outfit when you are running late?
V-neck t-shirt, dark Uniqlo jeans and flats.
How does being a fashion student affect your shopping?
I over think. How much did it actually cost to make this, and I’m paying how much?? Also I think about fabric quality more.
If you could steal a celebrity’s jean collection who would it be?
Jennifer Aniston, I feel like she is always wearing jeans and looks good.
What is you’re advice for other denim lovers?
Always try something different. I used to only wear Seven for All Mankind, but then I started to branch out.
Any advice for men about jeans?
[Laugh] Aka, my boyfriend. I took him to Macy’s because they have a lot of variety–be prepared to try a bunch on. Don’t wear them too big, also not too tight. I don’t want to see the outline of your…
Yes Robin we get the picture. Just from this short conversation, I think it’s pretty obvious why I’m friends with her, apart from her killing jean collection, of course.
