DT Loves: ASOS Marketplace

After years of public school education the association between September and that back-to-school anticipation has been burnt onto our synapses. This antsy feeling often results in a strong compulsion to get prepared for the changes autumn brings, in other words, binge-shopping. The women on the Denim Therapy team always turn first to ASOS to satisfy this urge. The UK online retailer started in 2000 and launched ASOS Marketplace in 2010. This new expansion to their site serves as a platform for independent boutiques to sell their goods. We try to support our fellow small businesses whenever we can and ASOS Marketplace is a pretty good place to start if you like the styles the online giant sells. Check out our favorite denim pieces for fall sold on the Marketplace below.

Stylefinder: Men’s Carrot Fit Jeans


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.

Featured above:
(L to R, Top) Nudie Jeans Big Bengt Carrot Jeans, ASOS Dark Wash Carrot Fit Jeans, TopMan Raw Indigo Arc Leg Carrot Fit Jeans, and Diesel Krooley 8A0 Tapered Jeans.
(L to R, Bottom) AllSaints Gun Fit, Unconditional Side Zip Carrot Jeans, G-Star Raw ‘Morris’ Tapered Jeans, and TopMan Bleached Denim Carrot Fit Jeans.

Edwin, Back in the U.S.A.


Photo by Courtesy Photo

Edwin is returning to the U.S. market this fall after a two year absence, due to the exchange rate between the yen and the dollar.  A new partnership with The Foundation, a New york based sales and distribution partner, will help Edwin to relaunch in the U.S. with their first men’s denim collection.

The men’s collection consists of four fits, from slim to a traditional straight leg.  Washes range from raw to full vintage looks, with many styles featuring Edwin’s signature buckle-back detail.  All produced in Japan, prices will range from $225 to $300, with special product embellished with sterling silver hardware going as high as $700.

???We wanted to launch with the brand??™s top-of-the-line Japanese product. As time goes by, we??™ll bring prices down by bringing in some product that isn??™t made in Japan,??? noted Langsdorf, a partner of The Foundation (WWD).

Edwin will be available in 75 specialty stores in August, including Bergdorf Goodman Men, Scoop, Atrium, American Rag and Fred Segal Man, as well as and four Bloomingdale’s locations. Otherwise, Edwin jeans for both men and women are available on-line at international websites such as ASOS, YOOX, Cooshti, and Stuarts London.
