Smooth denim and nice fit! I also like the pocket shape and clean finishing. The pocket is actually double (an inset pocket with a patch pocket sewn on top, but it’s not bulky). The top stitching in red is a nice touch.
Since spring is around the corner, I’m thinking I’ll be wearing these all the time! To picnics, the beach, the park, around Brooklyn. They’re comfortable, I could wear them pretty much anywhere.
It’s official… the trend of the moment is mint green jeans!

1. Here’s a shirt the dudes will be wearing in spades this spring! It’s the Heritage Research x Lofgren indigo-dyed cotton “Spade Print Engineer Shirt”. Designed according to the silhouette and details of a 1920s railroad engineer’s uniform.
2. We’re curious to hear what you guys think about J Brand x Christopher Kane’s continued collaboration… We’re waiting to see if this one grows on us.
3. Step aside, leopard print… zebra stripe is in! The GUESS summer 2012 lookbook is out, and it features tons of color and bold accents like this animalistic skinny. Stay tuned.
4. True Religion isn’t one of our favorite denim brands, but for spring 2012 they’re busting out a novelty that we’re excited for: stretch colored cords in great colors, like this banana pudding yellow.
5. Eat Sleep Denim examines the current trend of mint green monochrome outfits among bloggers. We’re partial to the hue ourselves, so we’ll be supporting the spearmint movement.
