Nudie Jeans and indie music magazine Death and Taxes have headed to South by Southwest (SXSW) to open their East End pop-up shop and multi-artist showcase from Thursday to Friday, March 15-16 (12 p.m. to 8 p.m.). The shop at Cheer Up Charlie’s will feature a tightly-curated range of unisex organic denim and organic tops from the Spring-Summer 2012 collection. Commemorating the Austin launch, a limited edition “Keep It Weird” printed organic tee-shirt will be free with every denim purchase, or available for purchase at $25. All sales from limited edition tee-shirts will be donated to Austin Music Foundation, a nonprofit organization which supports local musicians with educational resources.
There will be onsite hydration stations and reusable water bottles (provided by Brita, global leaders in water purification); listening stations (provided by Marshall, the iconic amplifier and headphones brand); live performances and other goodies. See the flyer for more information.

If you are one of the increasing many who cycle their way to work, then you’d be happy to know how you can stay stylish, dry and unencumbered via Levi’s Commuter Series range of denim jackets, shirts, pants and jeans in their 511 skinny fit. The line of clothing appears very well thought out, from water repellent fabric to mobile, stretch pants to an extra wide utility waistband to hold your bike lock. And, that’s not all. The neat 3M® reflectivity stripes on the selvedge seams offers a whole new dimension to safe night riding. It’s all practical, functional and very cool. Watch the video and you’ll see what we mean.
You saw our post on Reco Jeans yesterday (and check it out if you haven’t—they are one of the coolest denim brands on the market with an inspiring vision that’ll get your wheels turning), and now we’ve got our hands on the looks they’re debuting this summer! MrNY is their New York-centric line of recycled denim and t-shirts, featuring designs from artist collaborations and fashion-forward conceptualization. There aren’t a whole lot of looks, but we’re all about quality over quantity, and this kind of quality is hard to come by.
