I recently purchased some Superfine Denim on sale at Jonathan + Olivia. The style name was Liberty and it came with black sheen. They almost looked like pants instead of jeans. I don’t have any pictures of myself in them so I leave you with Doutzen being Doutzen instead. They are a great fitting pair of jeans. I have yet to wash them so I’m not sure how the colour and fabric treatment will fare afterwards. We shall see.
Lanvin â™¥ Acne Holt’s will be carrying this line for women. Not sure about the men’s to be honest. Will have to check and update this post.
Yoga Jeans from Second Clothing. They came out last year amid the yoga buzz but somehow I missed hearing about them. It’s only after I received an email from Jennifer from Mudsharkstreetwear.com that I became intrigued. I was looking for another pair of dark skinny denim for the fall to wear with boots. This is what the website says: Jeans are not generally associated with perfect comfort. They tend to impede the large movements of the body and restrain and ususual stretching. But Second has changed all that! Combing fashion and comfort, Second Yoga Jeans are perfect for any lifestyle with an emphasis on well-being, flexibility and relaxation. Made of top-quality denim containing 97% brushed cotton and 3% elastane, Second Yoga Jeans hug the curves of the body in any position. They fit the ups and downs of a hectic day and metamorphose into laid-back fashion in the evening. Second uses denim with 92 percent shape memory, while the industry standard is only 64 percent. And thanks to their revolutionary treatment, the cuts and styles …
Alber is designing denim. Designed for city dwellers high and low, the reinvented classic tuxedo jackets, trenches, charming minidresses, and cuffed jeans are sure to satisfy style mongers of every tasteâ€”if not every budget. Coming to a store near you in November with prices like jeans ranging from $550 to $650, coats from $1,200 to $1,500 and Jewelry and handbags above $1,500. Lanvin certainly isn’t cheap. I imagine Holt’s will carry them. EDIT: It’s been confirmed, Holt’s will carry this line. via Refinery29 Pipeline – Alber Elbaz for Acne: Lanvin’s Designer Tries On Some Jeans image: refinery29.com
Earnest Sewn Harlan denim in Greaser Black wash. I’ve been looking for another pair of skinny jeans. The pair I bought from Lucky Brand is starting to fall apart. I was in Winners and found these perfect fitting Earnest Sewns for $16.00. That’s right, SIXTEEN DOLLARS. This is almost a good as the deal I got on a Chloe dress. Sometimes Winners is amazing.

There is a pair i want online, (see link) but I’ve never tried on that brand so i don’t know how the size fits, if not would you know how they fit? Thanks Hi Jennifer, I don’t know of any stores in T.O. that sell aristocrat jeans. (If there are please leave a comment!) I’m surprised that Over the Rainbow doesn’t sell them. There are some stores in BC and Alberta. I personally am a little weary of buying jeans online without trying them on. However, if you find an online store with a good return policy you could get away with buying them and just returning them if they …
This is the a cool idea, so I’ve adopted it from Danielle, who adopted it from Style Bubble. I’m really interested in what other people’s wardrobe mechanics consists of so, if you have a little time to do some quick picture searching on Google, please do send me your cogs of style and I will post them up (they will look oh so cool next to each other!). Just to give you a few tips, I don’t mean things that inspire you or things that you want. What I mean are things that you can’t live without on a daily basis in your wardrobe, the things you use to glue everything together OR things that you consider trademarks of your style. My style cog is about generalities. I usually have many versions of any one cogs. I won’t get into specifics, there are too many and I have no time. I’ll use existing posts to highlight my choices. Saves me from taking pictures. 😀 1. Sneakers – Adidas and Diesel are my favourites right now. …
Very interesting article on the state of denim in fashion today by Michelle Leder. We can only hope that the jeans market crashes, there are too many pricey brands out there. The only way I can wear brands like Diesel or Antik is by shopping for sales, they are just too expensive. However, Canada’s own Dish Jeans are fabulous and don’t cost a whole ton of money.
