These indigo “Boro” ties from Mister Freedom are the perfect gift to get for your guy this holiday season. They’re made from an assortment of fabrics so they’re easy to match with the rest of your wardrobe. We love how the colors are broken up by either bursts of red or a print, so even if the rest of your outfit is monotone, these ties will spice it up. What makes this tie a really cool gift though is that they are all handmade in their LA studio, so no two are alike. Make your guy will feel extra special and get this very limited, one-of-a-kind gift by emailing john or jordan @misterfreedom.com.

At the Kitson store on Roberston Blvd. in Los Angeles there is a new window display showcasing all the fun that is the Bleulab reversible jean–what seems to really be the start of a denim revolution!. These jeans come in a variety of cuts and colors, and the best part is you’re pretty much buying two pairs of jeans for the price of one thanks to their innovative design. We don’t know about you guys, but when we’re getting great-fitting, quality denim for such an awesome deal, we just can’t say no! And after looking at the new window setup, there’s no doubt in our minds that these jeans are a denim head must-have!

We’ve caught a glimpse of the new brand Live Life Love Denim, and well frankly, we wouldn’t mind living in their denim because we really do love it! While the brand is based out of Los Angeles, every jean is made from premium Japanese denim, so you know that you’re getting top quality. Though the line is due out this fall, we do see a nod to the pastel denim trend of summer, and to keep up with the seasons there are also hot coated denim skinny jeans, in both olive and red. If you really want to make a statement, the white & blue tie-dye wash is the pair of jeans for you. As denim brands keep pushing their limits to stay on top of the market, we think this new brand knows exactly what they’re doing, and we like it!

On day 2 of our PROJECT Global Trade Show coverage we got to chat with Helen Soulmiotis, senior account executive of Raven Denim. Loved by many-a-celebrity (the aptly named bootylicious Megan Fox short is a clear indiction of how much she loves the brand), the LA-based Raven is definitely one to watch. As a complement to their already popular women’s line, the brand is launching a men’s line. We absolutely fell in love with the Max trouser (most popular piece in their men’s line), which adds a relaxed twist to the classic trouser. All of the denim is imported from Italy and Japan and comes in washes that compliment any wardrobe. From high waisted that don’t make you look like a mom, to indigo rinsed trousers that elongate the leg, Raven denim is definitely something we’re raving about (yes, pun intended).

We love how far Levi’s is taking this curve ID campaign, with custom fitting sessions that sound like a celebration of denim shopping rather than one more step in the journey to end the agony (of sizing, that is). While this won’t be the end of the denim frustration forever, this is a start. RSVP for your closest city and take a trip to Levi’s for gifts, snacks, and (gasp!) jeans that fit.
RSVP here and don’t forget to Like Levi’s on facebook!

The sexy lookbook features their wide variety of fits and looks, and with each purchase you’ll receive a dose of their virtue: “a lifestyle that stays true to the heartbeat of Los Angeles”. We say, bring it on!
