I’m in the market for a jean jacket, but I want to get one that’s from am eco-denim company. I don’t really know whats out there, except for the Gap and J. Crew [ED NOTE: Sorry Amelia!], which I don’t think are known for their organic cotton farming or treatment of kids in their factories. What do you recommend? – Melissa
I didn’t think it would be quite such a major challenge to find a denim jean jacket made from organic cotton, but whoa, milady, it seems the eco-friendly revolution does not include cool denim jackets. While there are plenty of great organic denim lines like Loomstate and Linda Loudermilk Denim, they don’t seem to produce denim for your top half so much. But I did manage to find a great denim jacket, as well as some non-denim, eco-friendly jacket alternatives. Check ‘em out after the jump! Keep reading »

“God, I feel I’ve gone to therapy just to erase some of them. The cornrows I wore with ’N Sync. That was pretty bad. Britney [Spears] and I wore matching denim outfits [to the 2001 American Music Awards]. Yeah, another bad choice. I’d probably pay good money to get some of those pictures off the internet.”

This idea has been a long time coming. Designers over at LA denim studio Bleulab created totally reversible jeans. Given how little we actually like washing our jeans in the first place, the idea that when your jeans get dirty you could simply TURN THEM INSIDE OUT is actually revolutionary. The best part? The jeans aren’t some freaky deaky modified pajama jeans situation on the crotch — they actually have front pockets, zippers, and regular closures. This got us thinking about what other kinds of clothing innovations we need to see happen. Like maybe some retractable shoe laces, that trim themselves to the perfect length? Or white shirts with mega-stain guard technology? What would you innovate? [$163-207, Bleulab Reversible Denim] Keep reading »
Listen, Gap, I know you’re calling this a “denim romper” to try to make it seem trendy and fresh, but the truth is, I had the exact same piece of clothing in 4th grade, and back then we called it by its rightful name: “shortalls,” aka jean short overalls. Your version might not have Winnie the Pooh characters embroidered on the front pocket, but that’s the only detectable difference. The jig is up. And honestly, I don’t think the world is ready for shortalls to make a comeback. Keep reading »
Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.
However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »
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 »
