1. Rawr Denim posted an awesome, in-depth look into the significance of hand-dyed natural indigo denim, from the Indigofera plant to the labor-intensive hand-dipping process. Check out this video from the post below, of Japanese Momotaro hand-dyed indigo jeans:

Don’t worry if you can’t understand Japanese—you still get to watch the process.

2.  Check out this showroom preview of Wrangler Denim for spring 2012—they’re keeping it mostly classic with a range of blue jeans and some cute fashion pieces thrown in, like a light wash denim jumpsuit.

3. Tenue de Nîmes featured The Ladbroke Grove slim tapered jeans by Tellason in their holiday gift guide/wishlist. These limited edition jeans (less than 500 have been produced) are tapered from the crotch down and feature a handsome slim fit that bring the right notes of industrial and style-savvy to any guy’s look.

4. We hate to toot our own horn, but we’re going to anyway! If you didn’t check out yesterday’s post about the perfect hues of lipstick to rock with your denim, do so! Renee selected her five favorite lipsticks and five denim picks and we paired them for a look that can’t go wrong. Bust out the makeup bag, ladies!

5. The hand-dyed indigo Chuck Taylor All Star converse shoe now comes in high-top, and they were just released a couple days ago. They’re sure to sell out as quickly as the low tops did. They’re available at Tenue de Nîmes.

“50 pairs of the shoes were dyed by the Manabe family from Okoyama – owners of Japanese denim label Momotaro and the Rampuya dyeing factory. The shoes, each of which is unique and hand-numbered, will be available November 26th at Tenue de Nimes.”  (Highsnobiety)

Lipstick & Jeans: Our Favorite Shades To Wear With Blue


If art & design school taught is one useful thing, it’s that hues of orange and red look great with blue. And while you can translate that using jeans and a top, the ladies of DT are huge fans of throwing the pop color on our lips! We’ve whipped up combinations of our favorite lipsticks and our favorite jeans to show you how makeup and denim can work together in perfect harmony. Show us your own denim x lipstick combinations on our facebook wall!
