Sometimes you read the results of certain lady studies and wonder where the hell they found these women. While we get how it’s cool to fit into your old skinny jeans — if only because it’s like finding a new pair of pants in your own closet — we wouldn’t really say it’s better tha…

International Fashplomacy: Noko Jeans From North Korea

These days, starting a denim line seems just about as formulaic as making a Duncan Hines cake: get some organic cotton, mix in a celeb name, slap on a pricey label, and voilà! That’s not quite the case with Jacob Åström, Tor Rauden Källstigen and Jakob Ohlsson, who decided to go the hard way by…

Style 911: Is It Possible To Make My Tight Pants Bigger?

“I gained about 8 pounds (which I am totally fine with, BTW), but one thing that is annoying me is the fact that my skinniestjeans simply won’t button anymore. I can get them on and since they have a bit of stretch they look fine on my legs, but no amount of twisting and turning…

New Diesel Jeans Will Get The Boys To Notice You!

INTERIOR, A NIGHT CLUB:

An obviously dorky, wallflower-like girl, Stacey, stands alone awkwardly at the bar. Her ultra-hot friend, Tracy, walks up and joins her, sweaty from the dance floor. The music is blaring.

Jeans To Go With Your Motorcycle Boots

I think we can all agree that we’re so over the $300 price tag that certain denim companies shamelessly attach to plain old jeans.

Designer Will Make Bag Out Of Your Ex’s Jeans

They say ya gotta have a gimmick, and eco-designer Patricia Ordonez certainly has one down: Send her two pair of your ex’s jeans and she will craft them (along with burlap and broadcloth) into a custom-made tote bag ($90) or duffel ($125). Kind of funny, but we’re not sure we’d want to advertise all of…

Australian jeans company Jeanswest has started installing cameras or “butt cams” in their dressing rooms, so women can figure out for themselves if their behinds look big in the jeans they’re considering buying.

Do you guys remember when Guess jeans cost, like, $40 and your mom was all, “Sorry kid, I’m not made of money, forget about it,” and stuff? Around the same time, jeans of the hole-y on purpose, paint splattered and bleached variety started popping up? Newspapers like The Daily Mail, Houston Chronicle and the Washington
