We popped in the AGENDA show (a show which promises to showcase everything from “garage-run lines on the verge of explosion to the established elite”) on its last day of operation and in the midst of menswear madness, snagged a copy of NYLON Guys January 2011. We did a quick scan for denim details in the (we must say, fantastic) issue, and snapped shots of them for your viewing pleasure. Scroll down for a quick dose of menswear denim dessert to follow your lunch break…
“Rags to Riches”, an editorial piece on new menswear label Penny Stock features photo of designer John Moore (alongside fellow designer Michael Abbey) sporting the classic breast-pocket denim jacket. Their line, inspired by the classic penny loafers, is really picking up steam…
The results of Levi’s collaborations with various labels to reinvent the classic denim trucker jacket are reported on page 38, featuring the Levi’s Workwear by Pendleton, modeled by Chris Rayner.
Writer Alan Bissett of Glasgow rocks a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and bright white dress shoes in a feature on the city’s coolest young artists, musicians, and visionaries. And let’s not forget the top hat.
The street style corner houses a handful of sharply dressed gents with experimental hair and super-skinny jeans. Vests, wool-lined leather and denim jackets, and killer shoes that could be just as much formal as they are street, are also common.
In a feature on lined boots, an easy fitting pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs jeans are modeled by music producer Briane Hatcher.
A feature on earth-toned jeans on page 84 has us craving an organic mid-winter color story. We love the picks by Diesel, J Brand, Rare Man, and Edun.
A puff jacket roundup (those are coming back into style, by the way) features a great pair of Bullhead jeans on club promoter/skateboarder Caleb Keller. We love his style—the quintessential downtown New Yorker.
A gorgeous winter fashion editorial singing praise to layered cashmere, flannel, and some of the warmest textiles a guy can bury himself in while still remaining stylish features model Max Krieger in TOPMAN, Steven Alan, Rachel Comey, American Apparel, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
We could go on forever (such as in depth coverage of the incredibly sexy Paz De La Huerta and her imperial name), but we want you to buy the issue and see for yourself! Subscribe digitally or in-print to NYLON Guys here.
