2 Twists On Traditional Men’s Jeans By Chip Foster


Just when you think you’ve seen everything in terms of wash, treatment, distressing, and style, a denim designer comes out with something new and exciting to keep consumer wheels turning. Chip Foster has a few new styles we’re excited about, ranging from comfortable and stylish to clever and quirky.

The first style is a flannel-blend slim straight fit men’s jean. Though slim, the fit is more relaxed, and the 12 oz indigo fabric feels just as comfy as the flannel sheets you put on your bed in the winter.

The second pair is a rainbow nap 12 oz  relaxed fit jean. The outside looks like your run-of-the-mill pair of jeans, but the inside features a rainbow spectrum of the threads woven into the nap. That means as your jeans begin to wear and crease, you’ll have hints of color showing subtly. How cool is that?

Both pairs of jeans will be available in late August at Nordstrom, Henry Lehr in the Hamptons, Loren in Brooklyn, and Independent in Arkansas. Check back for an expanded list of retailers on the Chip Foster waiting list, or contact melissa@chipfoster.com for details.

Chip Foster: Jeans So Good You Could Wear Them Inside-Out #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


Chip Foster prides his jeans on having exquisite construction and execution, which means clean lines and a beautiful “skeleton”. To see the premium detail in the tailoring of each pair, you have to turn them inside-out. In fact, the brand is proud enough of their attention to quality that they encourage customers to turn them inside-out and inspect!

You may recognize Chip Foster—he’s the creative director at large at Chip and Pepper denim jeans. “This is my new baby, my new line invitation only for the best selected stores that I love. There was no need to create another line… it was not needed but wanted.” And so, infusing his heritage and a bit of the Chip and Pepper DNA, he created a new line of jeans for the die hard denim lover. “Our quality isn’t expensive,” he tells us, “it’s priceless.”

Pray For Mother Nature Releases New Video


Pray For Mother Nature, Chip Foster (of Chip and Pepper) and his wife Nicole’s new eco-friendly denim line is amping up their environmental creds through a video short produced by Funk Factory Films.  Produced entirely in Los Angeles, Pray For Mother Nature taps into a powerful American symbol. “The centerpiece of the commercial is ‘Cody the Buffalo’.  We chose the Bison as a symbol for both the importance of preservation, and the enigmatic spirit of nature.”  Just established in 2009, Funk Factory Films is establishing major creds in the fashion world themselves by recently producing Rodarte’s short film, “The Curve of Forgotten Things,” directed by Todd Cole and starring Elle Fanning.

Pray For Mother Nature releases a new video featuring the bison, a powerful symbol of nature.

WWD News: Chip & Pepper Launch Mill Iron Line


by Khanh T.L. Tran

Posted THURSDAY JULY 02, 2009

From WWD ISSUE 07/02/2009

 

chippepperLOS ANGELES ??” Chip and Pepper Foster are spinning off another extension to their namesake premium denim company.

The designing twins are launching a moderately priced brand called Mill Iron exclusively at teen retailer The Buckle on July 10. Retailing from $98 to $110, Mill Iron will offer two men??™s styles in the inaugural fall collection: a relaxed leg with a button fly and a relaxed five-pocket straight leg with a zipper fly. The vintage-inspired details include black coating on vintage nickel trim and washes that evoke a cowboy??™s life, with names such as ???Buffalo Jump,??? a dark blue style with tacking.

Next spring, Mill Iron will move into the women??™s market with skinny styles accentuated with ankle zippers, legging jeans and boot-cuts. After The Buckle??™s exclusive one-season deal ends, the Fosters plan to expand distribution of Mill Iron selectively to their network of retailers, including Fred Segal, Bloomingdale??™s and Atrium.

???The $100 price point for a premium jean is, I think, a magic number,??? said Chip Foster. ???The way the economy is, people are looking for quality and price.???
