Tender x The Hill-Side Team Up To Create Limited Edition Selvedge Jeans


Tender has teamed up with accessories mavens The Hill-Side (makers of our fave denim ties) to offer up a truly international pair of men’s jeans. Each one is made from Japanese selvedge denim, and was cut, sewn, and stitched in Leicester, England, with details inspired by 20th century American workwear, like the placement of the label in the right back pocket. These super-versatile Type 129-TH-S slim-straight leg jeans are so limited edition, there’s only ten available. You can snag your pair at Hickoree’s for $365.

What To Wear With Super-Distressed Men’s Selvedge Denim #projectshow


While chatting with Japanese brand KURO Denim, a brand that specializes in exceptionally worn and ragged jeans (read: incredibly comfortable with built-in history), they discussed their customer’s most successful styling technique. When you buy a pair of jeans that’s nearly $500 and look like they’ve been through the war, a hoodie and sneakers don’t do them justice. The brand’s representatives suggest wearing their well-worn jeans with a crisp, button-down shirt and a beautifully tailored wool jacket (KURO has begun to introduce these options in the sportswear component of their line to drive the point home). Opposites attract, and a pair of jeans like these need to be balanced with clean, sharp coordinates.

2. Guys, try out Uniqlo’s limited edition Japanese selvedge jean (for far less than you’d usually pay for this kind of denim). Check out their store locations for one near you.

3. Rachel McAdams is rocking a red denim shirt on the cover of Glamour Magazine‘s February issue. Nice to see some front cover denim that’s a little different from the norm.

4. Denim, as an industry, continues to shove to the front of the VIP line…  Levi’s will show core collections at New York Fashion Week, reportedly in a “big budget” way in a “big budget space” in Soho. Stay tuned, we’ll have the latest.

5. Another one for the guys. Your search for the perfect black trouser jeans has ended:

Self Edge and Toyo Enterprises have come together to bring the ultimate pant in terms of hardware, details, and fit. Jungle Cloth fabric, hidden rivets, Sugar Cane pin-check pocket bags, red cotton twill inner leg seam lining, dark indigo poly-core stitch, iron embossed buttons, Buzz Rickson UFO rivets, and a slim fit round out this new release produced in a limited run.”

Get yours.

Jeans That Glow In The Dark (And When Not To Wear Them)


Unless you have a serious manhunt-playing agenda this summer or you’re still going to warehouse raves in upstate New York, you may not be able to think of too many reasons why owning glow-in-the-dark jeans is necessary. But necessary or not, they have arrived (and they’re pretty damn cool).  They’re by Naked & Famous, and you can score them at Barney’s for $240 this July. Apparently after five washes your glow will start to fade (so use them wisely).

We’ve come up with a list of things you shouldn’t do while wearing glow-in-the-dark jeans:

1. Attempt to run from the police at night.

2. Attempt to run from your angry girlfriend at night.

3. Attempt to surprise someone at a surprise party, in the dark.

4. Attempt to casually skip in front of the bathroom line in a dark bar.

5. Be taken seriously in any situation where the lights are out.

 

That said, we encourage you to give this innovative new denim technology a try.
