Public School’s Men’s Denim Line: As Badass As New York City Itself #ProjectLasVegas #MagicMarketWeek


Denim veteran Tobias Levine teamed up with the founders of Public SchoolDao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne—to put together a line of men’s denim jeans that are every bit as badass as New York City itself, where all the garments are made. The team works closely with the finest production facilities in the garment district to offer this rare component to their line.

The collection offers washes developed and produced exclusively by Wonderland concepts (a wash house in Kentucky owned by Dick Gaines). They also offer entirely un-washed, raw denim variations that allow the consumer to experience the fabric and customize their own pair through repeated wear. Fits include Skinny, Slim and Straight: PS 13, PS 14, and PS 16 respectively. The numbers represent the ankle opening, creating a clear distinction for the wearer as to which fit is best suited to their body. See our favorite four picks below.

A Denim Discovery: 3rd & Army Men’s Jeans #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


At Project NY and then again at Project Las Vegas, the men’s denim brand 3rd & Army seduced our eyes with three bold styles that exude rock’n'roll and sex appeal. It’s no coincidence that they make an impact at first glance: Industry authority Matt Atkinson (who founded the brand in September 2012) and all associates in the super-collective have worked for major US brands throughout the years. The relatively new project (100% made in LA) packs a powerful punch thanks to its experienced design and marketing team.

The brand DNA is taken from the quintessential California lifestyle. “Our collection speaks from our life experiences through the doors of 3rd & Army. Our clothing is an expression and a combined statement of classic music, fine art, vintage fashion, and a modern lifestyle in an original way,” says the brand. We expect only great things from these guys. Check out our favorite pieces below.

Chip Foster: Jeans So Good You Could Wear Them Inside-Out #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


Chip Foster prides his jeans on having exquisite construction and execution, which means clean lines and a beautiful “skeleton”. To see the premium detail in the tailoring of each pair, you have to turn them inside-out. In fact, the brand is proud enough of their attention to quality that they encourage customers to turn them inside-out and inspect!

You may recognize Chip Foster—he’s the creative director at large at Chip and Pepper denim jeans. “This is my new baby, my new line invitation only for the best selected stores that I love. There was no need to create another line… it was not needed but wanted.” And so, infusing his heritage and a bit of the Chip and Pepper DNA, he created a new line of jeans for the die hard denim lover. “Our quality isn’t expensive,” he tells us, “it’s priceless.”

Check out our favorite Chip Foster jeans below.

Up Close: Public School’s New York-Made Mens’ Denim Line


We spend 8 hours per day looking at denim: the jeans Denim Therapy customers send to our office from every corner of the world in order to salvage them after years of loyal “favorite jeans” service.  After so many run-ins with jeans from different brands and price points, you start to understand the meaning of true craftsmanship and high quality manufacturing. The trained denim-lover’s eye starts appreciating when garments are executed with integrity without sacrificing the details that set jeans apart.

It’s this kind of integrity that makes us love Public School and their newly launched men’s denim line. That their latest presentations at Milk Studios and at the James Hotel showcased polished and refined jeans. All of them are made in New York City. The collection brings together local textiles as well as  Italian and Japanese raw denim in styles and cuts already are a signature of the city we live in. Our favorites were the PS 13 All natural white 10.5 Oz Cone jeans and the PS14 Indigo Selvedge, made from 100% white oak mill 13.75 oz denim. This is a brand that the CFDA already has on their radar, and we believe  every New Yorker should start collecting wardrobe staples from their line up.

Nudie Jeans Fall 2012 Men’s Denim Preview


We stopped by the Nudie Jeans Co. showroom recently to preview one of our favorite Swedish denim brands—a brand that embodies both modern Scandinavian culture and classic utilitarian elements in denim and sportswear. Their unisex jeans have made the full transition into 100% organic territory, from denim fabric to pocket linings, buttons, rivets and labeling. It’s all raw material. The iconic orange stitching compliments an array of beautiful Japanese plaids with rich autumn hues for the cold season, all of which is further backed by a line of accessories and the exponentially successful backbone collection.

We’re Ready To Brave The Elements In Style With Marshall Artist Spring 2012


Let it be said that for a brand based in the U.K., Marshall Artist channels Americana cool pretty well. The young British menswear line first caught our eye at PROJECT NY, and their spring 2012 collection is definitely worth a closer look–if you don’t check out the details, you will miss out. From afar, their range of utilitarian pieces look like the story of when L.L. Bean met J. Crew, but we’re really celebrating the details that make these chambray jackets, selvedge denim, and fishermen sweaters distinctly stylish, yet fully functional in sportier environs. For instance, let’s all drool over the fact that many of their naval- and military-inspired chambray jackets are waterproof. Denim in the rain? Yeah, we can totally get behind that.
