Look for more coverage of the True Religion campaign launch on Denim Therapy.
3. As you know, Kanye West has fallen in love with being a fashion designer (we spotted him recently at Pitti Uomo Men’s Fashion Week). His early influence was his mom. “My Mom would wear blue jeans with a fur and an embellished “Cosby Show” sweater : ) to pick me up from school.” (via Twitter)
4. Denim-driven online retailer Lamb & Flag has opened up a new brick-and-mortar store in Brea, California, with another one in the works. By the way, they carry brands like [blanknyc], Kill City, Levi’s Made & Crafted and WeSC.

Walking through PROJECT NY is like sensory overload–the floors are stuffed to the brim with rows and rows of apparel and accessories. We walked through the entire showroom (yes, it took a while), and picked out five denim jackets for men that caught our eye. Check them out below!
Kuro Denim – Like everything from this company, this jean jacket was made entirely in Japan and oozes handcrafted vibes, from their strategic distressing to their stitched trademark–totally made to wear and be worn in.
Marshall Artist – Inspired by M-1965 field jackets worn by US troops, this jacket harkens military style, but with a twist– waterproof cotton chambray. Definitely a new (all-weather) use for a denim jacket!
Adidas Originals – This sporty Adidas windbreaker jacket is made from lightweight denim, excellent for layering while keeping out the cold.
Just A Cheap Shirt – We love how this jacket channels collegiate cool with a varsity jacket made from black distressed denim, coupled with yellow-tinted leather sleeves and accents.
Rivet De Cru Jeans – The classic denim jacket is a classic for a reason: it’s a style that goes the distance. Rivet De Cru’s incarnation comes with “secret” pockets and Western-inspired stitching for a fun twist on the traditional.
