Spring can be slightly unpredictable, what with freak rain storms and days of blissful sun. For those who refuse to lug around their over-sized coats, consider the denim jacket as your new spring fashion staple item. Now re-fashioned in every desirable fabric weight available to the average gentleman, you can be just as dressy or paired down as you like. Take a look at some new fabrications of the jeans jacket: everything from the classic to country-club acceptable. Yes, even colored denim options are brought back from years past, with a fresh point of view in structure and tailoring.

The perfect skinny jeans require the perfect t-shirt. Once you establish this equation, it’s just a matter of the right blazer and accessories. We’re totally intrigued by The AllSaints + Not For Sale T-shirt Collection—Rachel Zoe plugged it this morning and caught our attention. Not For Sale is a non-profit anti-human trafficking group, to which proceeds from these rad tees will go. You can do your part to prevent forced labor and human trafficking around the world while scoring something stylish for your closet. Win/win? We think so.
They retail at $65.00. Shop the collection here.

In this edition of Denim Therapy‘s Window Shopper, we take you on a denim smorgasbord on Los Angeles’ Robertson Boulevard, where celebrities, trend-conscious shoppers and hungry paparazzi frequent. Why Robertson? Have you seen the stores on that street? Besides playing host to Lisa Kline and three Kitson boutiques, you can shop at several premium denim brands within one city block without having to stop off at the nearest Starbucks. Denim-driven brands like AllSaints, Paige, 7 For All Mankind, Gap 1969 and True Religion can literally be found within one block. This does not include Intermix, Kitson and Madison, boutiques which carry a fantastic array of designer jeans for men and women in stock all within walking distance. And we say, walking distance in L.A. terms.

Selena Gomez, the “Monte Carlo” cutie, looked stylish in a black ensemble with super straight locks as she made her way through the crowd leaving the Metropolitan in London (all the while chatting on her cell phone). Her bottoms of choice? 7 For All Mankind The Skinny Cargo Pants. She paired them with an AllSaints tank top, Sam Edelman boots, and a MCM “Visitos” medium bowling bag (big thanks to Justin Beiber for that hefty purchase, eh Selena?). Selena may still be a little lady, but her wardrobe is getting more and more grown up.

AllSaints Spitalfields, the cult British fashion brand popular amongst the rocker and hipster set, has launched AllSaints Archive, a spinoff “clothing store” sale site which sells past-season merchandise at up to 50% off. Unlike other shopping sites (think Net-a-Porter’s The Outnet or Neiman Marcus’ LastCall), Archive will only feature AllSaints merchandise, which include the full collection of menswear, womenswear and children’s clothing. Needless to say, we are just giddy over here that we can score some AllSaints denim between $40 to $80, without blowing through one week’s worth of pay.

Contrary to popular belief, men also have trouble finding the right fit, when it comes to jeans. Thanks to the denim industry, a multitude of fits have been conceived to break open the shackles of boring, constrained male silhouettes. Consider the Carrot fit jeans: built roomy in the thigh area, dropped crotch, and tapered down to a straight leg. Depending on the cut of the jean, a man with muscular thighs can carry the carrot jeans off like a slim or straight leg, without cutting off circulation. Warning: if you are on the short side, look for Carrot fit jeans that begin the taper above the knees. If the thigh is too baggy, your thighs will look bigger, unless that’s the look you were going for.
