Holiday Wishlist: Denim Therapy Staff Picks For Amazing Jeans


If you could have any jeans in the world this holiday season, which would you choose? That’s the question we asked the whole Denim Therapy team this year, and they took a break from blogging/repairing denim to share their ideal denim wishlist! Then, we asked them to pick the pair they’d buy for their significant other! From classic cuts to novelty embellishment, we ran the gamut of must-have’s in men’s and women’s denim.

Denim Finds: The Zen of Denim Jackets


Denim jackets, calm, cool and collectively hip, will add a fun edge to any outfit.  Here are a few different styles that caught my eye. How gorgeous is the Mr. Freedom denim peacoat?  Nautical never looked sexier.

J. Crew Vintage Denim Jacket

J. Crew Cropped Vintage Denim Jacket, $118.00

The kind of jacket every woman should have in her closet. A fresh take on the classic in a cropped silhouette.

J. Crew

J Crew Men's Denim Peacoat

Mr. Freedom Denim Peacoat, $589.95

From Mister Freedom, a designer known for his vintage-inspired designs and devotion to authenticity, comes this reproduced denim peacoat, modeled after a merchant Navy sailor’s jacket dating back to 1910.

Mr. Freedom @ J. Crew

Iron Heart SEXIH07111BK Overdye Jacket

Self Edge x Iron Heart Type III Modified Jacket = SEXIH07IIIBK, $490.00

Details, details, details…this jacket has been overdyed black with a fugitive pigment dye which is an unstable and un-permanent dye that fades to later show the indigo denim underneath. Essentially this is a denim that begins black and fades to indigo in high friction areas, or what the Japanese call the “atari” fade.

Iron Heart @ Self Edge

Liquorish Batwing Denim Jacket

Liquorish Stone Wash Denim Tie Waist Jacket, $33.99

80′s reprise with stonewashed denim, long batwing sleeves, and twin buckle fastening.

Liquorish @ ASOS

Jeans used to be simple-hardworking pants meant to be beat up and worn in on motorcycles while eating apple pie and playing baseball.

But things have gotten a little weird-we’re talking hidden cargo pockets, spandex zippers and turquoise kneepads weird.

Arriving from San Francisco to fight the good fight is Self Edge, a store hell-bent on bringing you the best, most durable old-school denim in the world, opening Friday on the LES.

If you’ve ever seen Brando dockside in On the Waterfront or Newman cowboying up in Hud, you know that the same no-frills jeans those guys used to live in are pretty hard to come by. But Self Edge only stocks the kind of jeans that just look like jeans (and also happen to wear in like an old baseball mitt).
 
The shop is a tiny sliver of wood and wrought iron stacked high with obscure, cultish Japanese denim brands (Sugar Cane, Mister Freedom, Real Japan Blues) that create old-school blue jeans on vintage American shuttle looms so they wear in better than the usual pants you do your best to destroy in your weekly dance fight.
 
Besides denim, they’re carrying a few shirts, sweaters and boots from up-and-coming label 3sixteen that are pretty much all you’ll need to go with your new jeans.

After all, you wouldn’t want to be only half-rugged.

Self Edge, opens Friday in NYC’s LES

157 Orchard Street @ Rivington
