For those of you who have been following Canadian-based Fidelity Denim over the years, you know they’ve been called the butt bra of jeans and have a celebrity following.  Fidelity, now distributed stateside, has a mens jeans collection as of 2009.   As much as we’re coveting the Spring-Summer 2012 jeans collection (stay tuned for our denim review!), we can’t help but fall in love with the styling in their fall lookbook.  You’ll see the requisite skinny jeans, along with a slick burgundy coated jean, flared jeans and even some velvety fine-wale corduroy jeans in skinny silhouettes.  Rich, saturated hues along with faded fall shades are at your disposal.  Check out the gallery to peruse all the Fall styles.

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.
