Denim aficionado Levi’s has got together with animal preserver Damien Hurst to to bring a new and exclusive line of jeans and apparel all themed around Hurst’s work. The line was designed by Hurst himself along with designer Adrian Nyman and features skulls, spots and butterflies all printed onto black or blue jeans and black, white or purple t-shirts. No news on price or availability yet but the items should be hitting stores mid-September and are expected to sell out quickly.

Henry Holland gives Levi’s the 90210 treatment

By admin on September 2nd, 2008

hoh_90210levisannounce.jpgFrom Catwalk Queen:
House of Holland is once again teaming up with Levi’s for a six-piece capsule collection, which has been inspired by Beverly Hills 90210.

Being a tribute to 90210 , does that mean we can expect a bit of stone-wash, mum-waist, rolled-up jean a la Dylan McKay style? Hmm… perhaps not.

Pieces will feature print and laser-cut jeans style, making use of floral and polka dot designs.

Just like his debut range for the denim brand, Holland will showcase his new collection at his forthcoming London Fashion Week show on September 17th. Only this time, they will go straight into Selfridges for sale the day after the show.

Talk about hot off the catwalk.

Embrace your inner lumberjack at Oi Polloi

By Jonathan Smith on August 12th, 2008

2626-300.jpgIt’s a good day for a plaid lover like myself, with trend reports claiming that the American working man is ready to have his time in the fashion lime light the new A/W 08 range from Levi’s has dropped at Oi Polloi.

I’ve been a fan of Levi’s Vintage denim for some time now but have always felt that the range as a whole has left a little to be desired, however this year the line up looks great with some of the usual suspect such as 501′s and 505′s and some awesome (you guessed it) plaid shirts.

So embrace your inner lumberjack and check out the full range after the jump.

Denim on Denim – It can be done

By admin on April 15th, 2008

For eons, I’ve had the denim on denim look as the sole preserve of builders and creepy men in clubs. But seeing this picture at the Sartorialist has changed my mind for good. Although it’s best left for the colder months, the look can be recreated with this LVC 1936 type 1 Jacket.

The problem with most Denim on Denim looks is that the jacket is usually ill-fitting. With the cinchback design, it’s possible to create a strong V-line, which is what sets off the jacket in the picture. The other major problem I had with this look was that the denim didn’t match. As this is a navy blue, it should easily match at least one pair of jeans in your closet. The jacket costs £125 and is available from Cultizm.com.

Next to Samurai denim, Studio D’artisan is one of the
most popular denim manufacturers amongst aficionados. It’s unthinkable that a
denim aficionado’s brand wouldn’t make selvage jeans, so they’re here in
abundance. Although the site states that the cuts range from loose to slim,
they actually range from slim to skinny.

Top Five: Jeans

By ShinyMedia on May 9th, 2007

Corpus_jeansJeans are serious business in menswear, wearing them for months at a time without washing, sanding, dry cleaning everything is fair game to achieve the perfect wear. Small brands like Corpus (left) get you kudos but big brands are often just as good. Among aficionados the best brands are A.P.C and Nudie, but Evisu and Levi’s also score big. If you can go for a month without washing your jeans you will do well to keep the colour and texture of raw denim. Washing your jeans in cold water will also preserve as will using a handwashing detergent for dark or coloured clothes.
See after the jump for the rest of the picks.
