They are both available in normal and tall sizes, so you model-height ladies are in luck!

2 Twists On Traditional Men’s Jeans By Chip Foster


Just when you think you’ve seen everything in terms of wash, treatment, distressing, and style, a denim designer comes out with something new and exciting to keep consumer wheels turning. Chip Foster has a few new styles we’re excited about, ranging from comfortable and stylish to clever and quirky.

The first style is a flannel-blend slim straight fit men’s jean. Though slim, the fit is more relaxed, and the 12 oz indigo fabric feels just as comfy as the flannel sheets you put on your bed in the winter.

The second pair is a rainbow nap 12 oz  relaxed fit jean. The outside looks like your run-of-the-mill pair of jeans, but the inside features a rainbow spectrum of the threads woven into the nap. That means as your jeans begin to wear and crease, you’ll have hints of color showing subtly. How cool is that?

Both pairs of jeans will be available in late August at Nordstrom, Henry Lehr in the Hamptons, Loren in Brooklyn, and Independent in Arkansas. Check back for an expanded list of retailers on the Chip Foster waiting list, or contact melissa@chipfoster.com for details.

Raffael Reviews Denim & Leather’s Straight Leg Coated Jeans


Andrew Marc has worked hard to establish a reputation as an iconic American brand since its inception in 1982. In spring 2013 the company launched Denim &  Leather: a brand defined by an absolute love of Americana and the rebellious culture of the 40′s 50′s and 60′s. This brand captures the authentic spirit of these times with a contemporary and functional approach. It is a premium denim label that designs products for a young market: one that exudes rock and adventure.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Crinkle Night Wash straight leg jeans, so after hanging out with them for the past 3 weeks I’ll tell you what I think of them…

-

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

“Wow. Badass.” It doesn’t get much more rock’n'roll than black coated denim.

Where/when would you wear these?

I’m totally wearing these bad boys for my DJ gigs regularly. Good jeans are one way to own the night.

How’s the fit?

Perfect straight leg fit with room to move—and jump, as you can see below. I admire the strong craftsmanship. They’re sturdy, but they’re also comfortably. And most importantly, sexy.

Jean.Machine X Missoni Collaborate For AW13


Jean.Machine unveiled an exciting collaboration with Missoni during the men’s AW13 runway show last week in Milan. Jean.Machine’s signature styles were re-worked to feature iconic Missoni knit patterns (an amazing alternative to men’s colored denim for those who want to side-step obvious trends this year) on details such as pockets. Another favorite, the JM 4 jacket, was redesigned to include a detachable Missoni wool waistcoat on the inside. All styles will be available in early June from the Jean Machine website, Missoni stores worldwide, and other select retail locations.

Francine’s Agave Jeans Are Versatile & Comfortable


Francine recently tried a little experiment with her Agave Jeans (we’re in the experimenting mood lately). She tried wearing three different pairs with one top and necklace combo, to see if the classic styles would all work with her favorite top of the moment. The results were three new favorite outfits, and some rave reviews about Agave Jeans’ fit and fabrication!

agave denim review 01

The Fusta Slim Jegging: These are so soft (literally like butter) and versatile. Perfect for summer… these are definite beach pants material, and the button-up ankle detail gives it a bit of a nautical twist. I can also see myself wearing these for fall.

agave denim review 02

The Paloma Classic Skinny: Before trying them on I knew they had to be amazing, because Paloma it’s my daughter’s name! But seriously, these super-skinny jeans are an instant favorite. They fit like a dream.

agave denim review 03

The Tomboy Boyfriend Straight leg: Another pair with super soft, comfortable fabric (and another potential pair of favorite summer beach pants). Despite being boyfriend jeans these have a classic feminine fit, which is perfect for me. Love them!

Stay tuned for more on Agave’s latest styles, and don’t forget to check them out online!

Summer Denim Tips From James Jeans


Ahhh, summer. The sand, the surf, the skimpiest jean shorts you can squeeze into. What’s not to love about the sultriest time of the year? Summer’s also the time when everyone loosens up and casual dressing is de rigueur—meaning denim can work almost anywhere. But just slipping into the first jeans-and-a-tee combo you find is a bit boring, so we asked the James Jeans design team how they’re planning to get creative with their denim styling this summer.

james-jeans-summer-tips

Here are their top 5 tips:

1. ) The ’80s are back in full force, so try pairing your high waisted jeans with crop tops. Our High Class style is ideal for this.

2.) Cuff your skinny and straight leg jeans, making them into crops.

3.) We all have that pair of jeans we know we’re never gonna wear again. This summer, convert them into distressed, rolled shorts.

4.) We’re all about the DIY. Ombre your cut-off shorts (tutorial courtesy of Could I Have That?) or add studs to selected areas.

5.) Send last summer’s white jeans to Denim Therapy and get them tie dyed a la Isabel Marant’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Eric Reviews OPENMARKET Men’s Straight Leg Red Jeans


DT’s Eric recently pulled on his first pair of OPENMARKET jeans (the K1 tailored straight leg jean in red), and he’s here to tell you all about it. OPENMARKET is an LA-based men’s denim and knit basics brand—we showed you their rugged lookbook last week. Eric had been searching for a pair of red jeans for a while, and now that he has himself a pair, he’ll tell you what he thinks.

eric-menswear-denim-review-openmarket-red-jeans

 

What was your first thought when you tried them on?

They seriously kick ass. These are my first pair of jeans that aren’t black, blue or gray… so I was extremely excited to get them.

Within an hour of wearing them, I received compliments from customers who demanded to know where I got these awesome jeans. I’ll never forget the day I got them- it was a Friday. On the way to the bar, after work, people couldn’t help but stare at them as I passed by on the sidewalk. It didn’t stop there. Everyone at the bar was asking about my awesome new pair of red jeans.

Where/when would you wear these?

I will probably wear these all the time. They are surprisingly versatile forsuch a bold color and they go really well with my favorite blue sweater. I wore themto the bar, the beer garden and some non-alcoholic venues like work. They are sharp looking for a night out and comfortable enough to just wear around the house.

How’s the fit?

I’m 6’6 and pretty tough to please when it comes to size and fit, but these jeans look and feel amazing. They are a slim fit, but they don’t feel tight. I really don’t think I’ve ever had a pair of jeans that fit so ideally on my stature.

One of the best things about the jeans are the back pockets: the intricate detail in the stitching catches the eye and let’s you know that these are quality. I now know the joy of having red jeans, and look forward to adding more color to my wardrobe!

Stay tuned for Raffa’s review of his OPENMARKET jeans in dirty mint.
