Let’s think about when it might be appropriate to wear this Arden B. stretch denim jumpsuit: If you’re role-playing a sexy car mechanic? Parachuting out of a ’70s prop plane? Halloween? If you’re not doing one of those three things, then really, you have no excuse. [$69, Arden B.] Keep reading »
Ladies, don’t ever think guys don’t care about what you wear. When I asked my guy friends to give their opinions on a few lady-specific fashions, they were more than happy to offer their thoughts. Oh man, did they have some feelings about the clothes we wear. Major feelings. First up, I asked them about wide-leg jeans, which are on trend for spring 2011. Personally, I love them, because I have short dachshund legs, and I feel like they elongate my stumps. I’m wearing them right now! But guys? Well, that’s another story. After the jump, a mega man panel of 15 guys tell us what they think about this pair of Hudson wide-leg jeans.

This has happened to us before. When we were 6 years old. And did not understand how to wear clothing properly.
Now there’s a company out there making custom 2-in-1 jeans that take two back halves and sew them together so that your butt pockets become your front pockets. Edgy? Perhaps. But we’d imagine most people would just think you got dressed in the dark. [Mind What You Wear] Keep reading »

If you have opened a magazine or looked at a billboard anytime in the past few months, you have heard of Levi’s new Curve ID jeans. Last summer, Levi’s launched a new fit system for their denim based on a woman’s body shape, instead of her size. The company performed body scans of 60,000 women around the world and identified three main body types — “slight curve,” “demi curve,” and “bold curve” — which fit 80 percent of women. Exciting news, right? Keep reading »
I wash my jeans about once every two weeks. I don’t know if this is a disgusting or normal thing to admit. It sure doesn’t sound pretty, especially considering I wear my favorite pair at least four times a week. Some people, however, never wash their jeans. Like, ever. According to the New York Daily News, raw denim (meaning pure, stiff denim that hasn’t been treated at all by sandblasting, bleach, or any other fancy processes) devotees don’t launder their denim at all because wearing them in sans-cleaning creates highly individual pairs of pants. The more you wear them, the more the wash and creases adjust to your body. Of course, then there are just folks who are lazy and prefer to avoid trips to the laundromat at all costs.
How often do you wash your jeans? How long is too long to go between washings? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »
The outfit in the photo above appears to consist of a shirt and jeans, but, in actuality, it’s Levi’s Double Denim Onesie. This one-piece has a chambray shirt attached to a pair of straight-fit jeans and takes all the guesswork out of getting dressed … for at least one day a week. But wouldn’t it be much easier to get dressed if you simply owned a chambray shirt, which could go with skirts and other pants, and a pair of perfectly fitting jeans, which you could wear with other tops? Not to mention there are much cheaper ways to get the denim-on-denim look of this onesie that costs $194. I love one-pieces and jumpsuits as much as the next person, but the point of those garments is to look like one piece, not the lazy person’s uniform. Would you wear Levi’s denim onesie?
