Drop-crotch jeans have been dubbed the ‘future of denim’ and ‘the next skinny jean.’ I am an unbelievable skinny devotee (yes, I am scarred after wearing them in Summer-heat London and not even joking) and for this reason, I decided to road-test an exclusive pre-production sample pair from Trousers London.
Steve Jones was seen on Monday with rumoured new girlfriend Fearne Cotton. A stylish, undoubtedly TV-friendly pair, I have to admit that I actually think Steve is better dressed on this particular date.
We’ve made you endure some pretty terrible things on Brandish (see here and here,) and now I present a sneaky snap of New Look’s new adjust-a-length jeans. The trick is you have to button up each different level of the jean depending on what you’re after; shorts, the semi-crop, full jeans or the button-embellished. Is it just me who gasps at this fashion indictment?
Heard of the saying ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’? Apparently Glue Jeans haven’t as they’ve decided to do away with stitching and make their jeans using glue. Guessing from their name, they decided on the glue before anything else.
Looking at this picture makes me empathize with Metallica fans who watched ‘Some Kind of Monster‘. It’s the moment you realize that someone you previously idolized is just a person – and one with terrible style.
Apparently, news of dVB’s mens denim line being pushed back was either wrong or premature. A rep told New York magazine that the report was inaccurate and that dVb jeans are due to be released on schedule. You can buy yourself some proper mens jeans in Holiday season (I’m guessing that’s around December) this year.
If you couldn’t wait to get your hands on a pair of men’s dVb jeans, you’ll have to wait a good while longer as retailers have refused to stock it. It’s not yet known whether she’ll retreat to the drawing board (she might even include some of those skinny jeans she hates) or whether they’ll just lower the price point. Either way, the line has been pushed back to at least next year.
Uniqlo are always chock-full of sale bargains but I wonder if anyone would go for their pink skinny jeans even with the reduction.
They’re down to £14.99 from £24.99 which a good price but pink is a bit of a tricky colour to wear.
Now that the sales are in full swing, it’s time to start picking out the true bargains. House of Fraser is usually too chav-tastic for me, but these J. Lindeberg jeans are a steal at £50. The simple design and dark wash make this a wardrobe staple instead of a regretful sales purchase, so you won’t have to worry about whether you’ll still like it in six months.
Seeing as Rykiel Homme is closing down, their clothes will make the transition from good piece to collector’s item. Before that transition is made, a lot of it goes on sale. This brings us to these Rykiel Homme jeans.
What a surreal start to the week- trawling Topman for a Monday Morning boost, I was hoping for a few print t-shirts but instead discovered the horror of the new ‘Premium High Waist Slim Jeans.‘ Yes, that’s right; after drop-crotch and MC Hammer (I don’t actually want to touch this) denim, we are being given the chance to try out the latest jean trend. The high waist has failed to get women on side à la skinny jeans simply because they are impossible to wear. In indigo, 100% cotton and selling for £45, I am left wondering if it is really worth the risk. What do you think?

Lanvin clearly like what Acne did with Fantastic Man, as they’ve decided to start making denim with the Swedish company. Acne’s previous collaborations bode well for this upcoming one, as the Gentleman’s jean were a great addition and should have been more widely available.
If you have tree trunk thighs or long legs then you’ll find it hard to find jeans that fit exactly the way you want them to. Things would all be so much easier if someone would customise your jeans for you before you bought them. But who would do such a thing? If this were a TV show, at this point ‘one man denim workshop’ Ande Whall would burst through a wall and say an unfunny line. But it isn’t so I’ll just have to link to their site.
Why do people put such a low price limit when jeans shopping? Don’t give me the price nonsense either. If you spend £50 on jeans which develop holes after 3 months, then you’ll need to replace them. Do this 3 or 4 times a year and you’ll spend £150-200 on the same awful pair of jeans. So why not save that money up and get these Acne Jeans?
For some weird reason, Grey jeans are still hard to come by. That’s what makes these Dolce & Gabbana light jeans a god/allah/thereisnogod-send. While I love trousers, they can be slightly too flimsy for my tastes.
The Dutch duo behind the beloved Fantastic Man magazine have teamed up with Acne to produce the ‘Gentleman’s Jeans’, a pair of slightly tapered slim-ish fitting dark denim jeans. The Fantastic Man editors Gert Jonkers & Jop van Bennekom describe it thus:
“It’s reminiscent of a style that we’d see on our fathers and uncles — the dreaded pleated denim chino — but then updated and made wonderful for today and for ourselves.”
Topman has perfected the art of online retailing. Constantly changing and adding to their list of online sub-stores, there is a separate store for denim, t-shirts and even summerwear. The latest addition to the website is the Dynamic Denim feature. An essential to every man’s wardrobe, see after the jump for my pick of the label’s latest denim lovelies.
Poor Daniel Bedingfield- he crooned about his ability to be James Dean and next thing he knew he was blown out of the entertainment water by his own sister.
The latest news on the fashion circuit is of Posh Spice’s interesting new venture-into the world of men’s jeans. According to an article on DNR, Beckham “despises skinny jeans on men.”
