J.Crew Releases U.S. Made Point Sur Denim


J.Crew are releasing their own line of U.S. made premium denim, called Point Sur Denim. Fans of J.Crew are gearing up to fill in their denim collections with this exciting release, which offers up options like Japanese selvedge denim that’s pre-broken in in a luxe white and classic blue jeans with handmade hardware.

Their vision for this endeavor? Their website reads, “You know those vintage jeans you go on an all-out search to find after you see them on some cool girl? Well, these are those jeans.” Color us intrigued.

So what’s the point of releasing an entirely new denim collection when J.Crew already does denim? Apparently, they are targeting denim-heads like us. As Tom Mora, Head of Women’s design at J.Crew, told Racked: ”We still love our J.Crew denim, but it definitely reaches a broader audience. [Point Sur] is going after those die-hard denim lovers… [We're] playing with proportion, playing with rise, to make it really unique and special.”

Target’s Mood Booster: Letting Staff Wear Jeans


Reblogged from Racked: Following months of negative press and layoffs, Target has instituted a sweeping change of its dress code at its Minneapolis HQ in the hopes that a more relaxed policy will make employees happier. The retailer announced the news on Monday, saying that they now trust Target team members to “dress for their day.”

What does that mean, exactly? Let’s let Target explain: “For example, a big day might call for something like a dress or a suit, or maybe even dressy jeans and a blazer. For a low-key day, jeans and a nice polo might be the answer.” In a memo to employees that was leaked to press, Target said, “We all know that casual days, weeks or months make team members really happy. We also know that life’s a little easier when we have more choices — and less dry cleaning.”

For the past ten years, Target’s dress code has been rather strict. Men were required to wear jackets or ties and women were not allowed to wear sleeveless shirts without a jacket or cardigan to cover their arms. The rules regarding attire were so strict that they supposedly ran 20 pages long on Target’s internal website.

Target’s not sliding all the way into startup-land: no flip flops, Birks or “heavily-worn” shoes are allowed; women aren’t supposed to wear spaghetti-strap tops or leggings as pants; and shorts and overalls are both verboten. (Racked)

Did Skinny Jeans Almost Ruin America’s Currency System?


Ecouterre published an eye-opening article recently regarding one of our own favorite wardrobe staples: skinny jeans. But the eco-focused website didn’t rave about how versatile they are or how many printed options are available for spring. They accused skinny jeans of nearly wrecking America’s currency system:

In the late 1800s, when a single currency system was established, the bills were sustainably produced from waste fabric from the fashion industry. That’s right: George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were printed on fibers processed from unwanted materials, entirely compiled from recycled scraps. But a recent article published over at the Washington Post last month sheds light on how the fashion world’s love of figure-hugging jeans since the ’90’s has wreaked havoc on currency production, tainting the waste scraps with spandex and rendering them useless.

Read on…

denim-dose-david-lipman-hudson-7fam

1. In need of cute fall jeans & chic colored denim? Uummmm, did you not see this post yesterday?

2. David Lipman has ended his advertising relationship with Hudson Jeans and is siding with 7 For All Mankind. It’s like the star quarterback for one football team switching to the rival team, right in the heat of competition! Exciting! Here’s what he had to say about 7FAM’s upcoming ad series:

“It will have a number of moving parts in terms of film and print. It will communicate via storytelling. The campaign will center around Los Angeles and exporting an elevated California lifestyle to the world.”

3. And speaking of which, Hudson Jeans is (at least partially) for sale.

4. 7 For All Mankind’s social media and PR guru chooses her favorite jeans from the 7FAM line. The winner? The wide leg Biancha flare.

5. California winemaker Mark Beaman just released a red-wine blend in honor of The Grateful Dead. Is that awesome? Yes. Are we even more fixated on this model’s acid wash jacket? Yes.

5. Twilight star Ashley Greene is the new face of DKNY, via one year contract to represent their denim line. Says Ashley, “I’ve always loved Donna Karan’s creations. To be a part of the brands’ message is incredibly exciting because it feels like such an organic fit.”

1. We’ll take this moment to predict that kid’s premium denim is going to be a growing trend in the market, and as The Denim Guy noted, 7 For All Mankind is heading up the trend.

3. The Kardashians’ developing Sears line will soon feature home products, baby clothing, and a denim collection.

4. Demi Moore is the face of holiday denim this season with her Ann Taylor campaign appearing in Vogue, Elle, and other major mags, as well as metropolitan billboards.
