J Brand CEO, Jeff Rudes has a thing or two to say about what every gal needs in her denim inventory this fall.
“Which jeans should every woman have in her closet? She should have 3 skinnies, 1 flare, a few colors, always a corduroy and 1-2 fashion styles – who’s counting!”

From WWD: “Fashion newspaper, WWD hosted a denim forum as a venue for denim brands to share information about their companies and design innovations they may be working on. Of the brands in attendance, Jeff Rudes, the CEO of J Brand shared about the past and future of the brand.
J Brand has already experienced rousing success in the denim markets, the brand plans to expand to sportswear. While the sportswear line will be directed by a separate team and will be a separate line, it will still have the same J Brand aesthetic. Rudes commented it would be, “simplistic minimalist with great fabrics and fit.”
The line will be launching in 100 stores in 2012.”
