You don’t have to be a denim-head to remember your first pair of jeans. Usually they’re the pair you’ve had for the longest time and have the most damage — the jeans you never want to part with. We talked to Nate, Brooklynite and denim lover, about his very first pair of jeans — green denim and corduroy bell-bottoms. See what he has to say about how he wore them to the bone and how he wishes he’d kept them so Denim Therapy could come to his rescue, nearly thirty years later.
This past weekend, fashion photographer Tommy Ton was out doing some style stalking at mens fashion week Pitti Uomo in Florence. Men (and women) braved the cold weather in their finest, and denim fashion was aplenty. We loved the casual juxtaposition between desaturated jeans and sartorial suiting complements as much as the use of denim jackets and dark wash jeans as the key element to a dressed up ensemble. Nobody was trying to show off. Right.

Let Doctrine Jeans take you back to #FNOatSaks! Relive the event frame-by-frame as Doctrine Jeans shows us some key moments at GQ Magazine’s “Authentic Denim” event at Saks Fifth Avenue—and Denim Therapy was there! If you are not already familiar with the brand, they are new on the market, founded fall 2010. Doctrine Jeans offer jeans for men and women who are more into the fit rather than glitz. Marked by clean lines and slim fits, this brand has come out of the gate strong.

Annalynne McCordstepped out for a good cause in Black Orchid’s Black Beauty bell-bottoms in Cyberspace. The newly brunette starlet accentuated the 70’s style denim with a bright top for a youthful, yet sophisticated look at the Artists for Peace & Justice event.
