Lee Europe: All The It Jeans You Can Handle For Fall 2012


We’ve notice for quite some time how Lee Jeans in Europe (aka Lee Europe) has a covetable collection of on-trend jeans for men and women, and they continue to surge forward for Fall-Winter 2012 with a range of colored jeans in tailored cuts and sleek silhouettes.  You wouldn’t even stop to think that its American counterpart collection could somehow be related, but we won’t go there.  We only hope Lee brings some of those yummy jeans stateside, because we’re ready to have our minds changed.  Yes, Lee Jeans might possibly be cool again in the U.S.  Check out the gallery for all the velvety, sleek looks!

Denim We Love: 9 Slim & Skinny Jeans for Men


Let’s face it: men also need options when it comes to jeans.  While we agree that not every man should wear skinny jeans, some men can really rock a pair.  And, for the slimmer men out there, a pair of skinnies are the only ones that will fit properly on their bodies.  So, without further adieu, we rounded up nine pairs of skinny jeans that caught our eyes, both for the washes and treatments, and for the potential to flatter the various shapes of the male form.  You’ll be surprised how good you look in them.  Whether you’re a musician or a college professor, we think you’ll find a wearable pair of jeans to wear this season.

 

1. Ksubi Van Winkle in Dull Metal ($245) – buy it at REVOLVE Clothing.

CLOSED Fall 2012 Offers Classic Denim in Wearable Hues


Think you’ve had enough of all the crazy denim trends this year?  We think clothing brand CLOSED will provide some relief with their range of wearable denim from top to bottom.  Maintaining a bit of color in its range of jeans, cotton pants and separates, you’ll feel like you could invest in a couple of solid items that will stretch out your wear longer than the seasons.  Closed is also one of the few denim brands currently offering denim capris—a perfect cut for ladies who want to show off their new favorite booties.  We’re also digging the sartorial touches in the men’s collection.  Check out the gallery below for all the Fall-Winter 2012 looks.

Factotum AW 2011: Denim Inspired by Cafe Time


Admit it. Men in jeans who wear an apron are hot. Japanese denim brand Factotum seems to think so, too, and it’s highlighted in their Autumn-Winter 2011 lookbook. Inspired by “Caf? Time,” you get more than a hint of the often beguiling allure of the caf? busboy, or the handsome stranger who might be seated alone nearby. Is he a regular, or is he just passing through? Well, at least he makes an impression.

Factotum - a Japanese denim brand is inspired by "Cafe Time" for Autumn-Winter 2011.




Sometimes, that handsome stranger is a rocker.  Sometimes, he’s this preppy guy. But is he ever the dude bold enough to make a statement in polka dot jeans, as proposed by Factotum Denim?  Are you that man?  Layer in a Japanese robe; make sure your shirt or overcoat collars are a bit sloppy looking, and you’ll be rockin’ Japanese street fashion.

Via 84/85.  More images at Houyhnhnm.

The West is Dead: Raw Denim & Chambray Shirts


The West is Dead—is alive and well.  Featuring raw denim (with interior seams tape-sewn in the “precious” locations for comfort!), fitted chambray shirts, fitted denim jackets cut like peacoats, cotton duck pants cut like jeans and reversible cotton sweaters, we think your manly man won’t be able to resist The West is Dead’s collection of functional clothes made with minimal design and premium material. If you like your denim raw, then you won’t be disappointed.

The West is Dead is a new premium denim line for men, featuring raw denim and a workwear inspired collection.




Founded by two northern Montana buddies with a love for denim—Kaelen McCrane and Will Cheng—The West is Dead “focuses on the conservation of the American West,” which includes respecting the land and the people through charitable endeavors. Kaelen and Will imbue their collection with the spirit of the American West in almost every aspect of their collection, and it shows. Their jeans are cut and sewn in Los Angeles, and their sweaters are made in South Carolina.

 

Jeans retail from $185 to $265; denim jackets are $245, and chambray shirts are $130 to $135.  The West is Dead is available at specialty boutiques like Steven Alan Brooklyn, Atrium NYC, Fred Segal Man and What Goes Around Comes Around (L.A. & NYC).  Go to The West is Dead online to shop their entire collection.

Citizens of Humanity Debuts New ‘Adonis’ Jeans at Fred Segal


Fancy yourself a Greek god?  Citizens of Humanity’s latest installation at Fred Segal Finery, featuring the new Adonis jeans, might make you feel like you’ve got the perfect body wearing the world’s most comfortable jeans.  At least, Co-Founders Jerome Dahan and Adriano Goldschmied hope guys who wear these jeans will feel that way.  The new Adonis fit “brings back the classic shape of a traditional slim fit adapted to embrace the stretchability of the ultra soft fabric.”

Citizens of Humanity debuts their new Adonis fit jean, a slim jean with stretch.

Dahan and Goldschmied teamed up with Fred Segal Finery in Santa Monica to produce this display, featuring a hand painted slogan, Enjoy the comfort! against a stark white wall.  A pair of the Adonis Fit jeans is “casually placed over a thrift store purchased chair to convey the marriage of ultimate comfort and the contemporary style of a slim jean.”  The installation is on display through June and July.  If you live in Los Angeles, you’ve got dibs on the Adonis jeans.  This new style will launch to global denim lovers this Fall.

Read about Adriano Goldschmied’s  ‘Mister Sneakers’ Art Installation at Ron Herman.
