Denim Dose: News & Links

Welcome to your morning dose of denim news, links, sales, and other irresistible glimpses of inside info. Catch up on what’s happening (and what’s definitely not happening) and browse our personal picks after scanning the web this morning. Got a tip you think we should include, a sale you want to share, or a style you just saw and can’t live without? Email us!


1. Maurice Malone and Williamsburg Garment Co. got a big shout out in WWD for the fresh new line of low-priced, high quality jeans (which we covered and in a Q&A and denim review). Gaining attention for his exclusive distribution and unheard of prices, Maurice had this to say about his business method:

“I don’t need 2,000 accounts and I can’t even do 2,000 accounts,” he says. “Until the demand is solid, one account per city is about right. I want every retailer I work with to understand the concept behind the product. Everything gets lost if I’m selling to a big store. The product is inexpensive, but nothing about it says ‘cheap.’”

2. The editors and staff of Daily Candy rounded up their New Year’s resolutions for 2012, and one of their LA interns vowed to start nixing the fast fashion habit and invest in some clothes that are longer lasting/higher quality. Her picks? A.P.C. Petit Standard raw jeans ($175).

3. Looks like the Versace cruise collection for H&M is going to feature a denim workshirt with a classic Versace motif trimming its center front. The collection will be sold online only and will feature both men’s and women’s resort looks. After seeing the collection previews… we’re not exactly sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for the January 19th arrival.

4. MiH Jeans is having up to 70% off their jeans, tops, skirts, and more online right now—so here’s your chance to grab some awesome skinnies or flares, a cute T-shirt, and a jacket to boot!

5. Brand new on the raw denim market, check out the Studio D’Artisan X-32 Christmas Edition Raw Denim. This release marks the 32nd Christmas model since the company began in 1979.

Denim Resolutions For 2012: Care & Style

Whether or not you keep all of them, it’s never a bad idea to make a list of resolutions for the new year and hang them up somewhere to remind yourself what habits you should drop (or form). While we’re going to leave the “stop smoking/work out more/be nicer to Aunt Flo” resolutions up to you, we’ll give you a cheat sheet of denim-related resolutions to keep taped to the inside of your closet door. And of course, we’ll be here throughout the year if you need us to assist you in sticking to them.

2012 Resolutions For Denim Care

1. I will not wash my jeans after every wear. When I wash them, I’ll use Woolite to protect their color and consistency. If I have to wash my raw denim,  I will try heat, vinegar, and freezing before I resort to H2O. If washing just won’t remove the stink, I’ll put my vodka stash to good use.

2. I will not let my angry ex-lovers anywhere near my denim collection, nor will I ride my motorcycle in my most expensive pair of jeans.

3. I’ll take good care of my leather patches with the proper leather cleanser.

4. If I’m not a raw denim-head who loves blue jean bruises, I’ll soften my jeans the quick way.

5. I will monogram my jeans with my initials before lending them to jealous BFF’s who might claim they belong to them.


2012 Resolutions For Denim Style (For Women)

1. I will not have ill-fitting jeans. I will get them hemmed and tailored as needed so I look awesome!

2. I will buy lipstick that perfectly compliments my favorite pair of jeans.

3. I will choose jeans with pockets that make my butt look great.

4. When it’s time to let go of old jeans, I’ll donate them to make room for a better fitting pair that make me feel great.

5. I’ll give boyfriend jeans a try (or some other style I didn’t try in 2011).


2012 Resolutions For Denim Style (For Men)

1. I will not have ill-fitting jeans. I will get them hemmed and tailored as needed so I look awesome!

2. I will combine preppy, rockstar, and hip hop sensibilities for the perfect outfit.

3. I’ll wear a denim bowtie, at least once.

4. I’ll wear colored denim until I find my favorite color.

5. I’ll go beyond the generic denim workshirt, whether it’s stripes, embroidery, or mixing washes.


And as a bonus…

I’ll learn to say “jeans” in as many languages as possible!


Happy New Year!
