Remember when we wrote about Designer Jeans with embroidered pockets? What if we could change the look of our jeans without having to buy a whole new pair? Gridlock Denim founded their jeans on the idea of interchangeable back pocket overlays that can be swapped out when the mood strikes. With just a one-two zip et voil?: instant denim therapy! Feeling a little Boho chic? Want to get rough and military? Or, you just want to un-bling your jeans? Yes, Gridlock’s got a pocket for that. The jeans are sourced from high quality denim from ORTA, a Turkish manufacturer, and cut, sewn and made in Los Angeles.
The jeans in this collection consists of the “Railroad,” “I-Core,” “I-Core Vintage,” “Marina,” “Raw Wash” and a “Men’s Railroad” style, with most jeans featuring discreet whiskering and other comprehensive finishing techniques.
The jeans retail for $120-$250 each, and additional pocket overlays are $18-$40 per pair. To view more images and purchase the jeans, go to Gridlock Denim online.

Have you heard of Gridlock Denim? Launched in 2009, Gridlock is a Los Angeles-based denim brand that made fashion headlines when they launched at L.A.’s Kitson boutique. It’s a neat take on the chameleon jean: your jeans change as your mood changes, via patented Interchangeable Pocket Overlays. “All it takes is a couple of quick zips, buttons or snaps.” You can alternate your back pocket design without having to take them off, although it might get tricky depending on how tight you wear them. Television celebs like AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”) have been seen wearing them.
The jeans offered are the tried and true basics: straight leg, boot cut and a couple of skinny and cigarette styles. Back pocket shapes and designs vary. You can purchase additional sets of back pockets for about $30 at Gridlock Denim‘s own Web site.
If you’re still not sure about spending lots of money on jeans you just heard about, The Sample Sale is offering them up for a mere $59. So, you can get your feet wet and not totally feel buyer’s remorse. Shop soon: sale ends in just over a day.
