The Story Behind Your Favorite Pair Of Jeans


We’re a little sentimental about jeans, if you haven’t noticed. Each member of the Denim Therapy team has a story to tell about when their favorite pair of jeans, either from days gone by, or their more recent jean companions. While we’re a special breed of denim-head to be sure, we know that this level of dedication isn’t abnormal. Everyone has a favorite pair of jeans, whatever income level or profession. For this reason, we adore Jean Stories to the core.

Jean Stories is a website dedicated to telling the stories behind cherished pairs of jeans, from a variety of viewpoints. From jewelry designers to stylists, this site provides an inside peek at the relationship between creatives and innovators, and their baby blues. Here’s one of our favorite excerpts, from LA-based jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer:

jean stories Jennifer Meyer

“I’m a blue girl,” said the Los Angeles jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer when we visited her at her Culver City studio recently. “I do a lot with turquoise and lapis. I grew up in Malibu and was lucky enough to see the bluest blue ocean on a daily basis. Jeans for me…I mean, in LA you can wear jeans to everything.”

(…) Jeans are a totally integral part of every day – as much a part of living as breathing. Consider her Current/Elliott boyfriends (a collector’s item, if you ask us, because they date back to 2008 when C/E’s original founders Emily Current and Meritt Elliott introduced this style and made the boyfriend a must-have in what felt like a minute): They go with her on vacation and they go with her to work. “You put on a heel and a little black leather jacket or a blazer, and you’re done,” said Jennifer, who is mom to Otis, 4, and Ruby, 7, and wife to actor Tobey Maguire. So, they go out with her at night, too? In L.A., you bet they do. (See the full story at Jean Stories)

Is it just us, or is it getting sentimental in here!? We’re looking forward to seeing more of what this site has to offer in terms of up close and personal denim-related tell-all’s.
