Selected And Personally Reviewed By A Denim Addict
To many I am a fashion guru... the one my friends and family go to whenever they need help in the wardrobe department. Since denim is such a huge part of fashion these days, I thought a guide to finding the best brands would be a fantastic idea! Because I live in Los Angeles I have all of primo boutiques, showrooms, and stores at my finger tips to see, feel, try on, and buy the best brands of denim. I've selected all my favorites for different fits, styles, and colors... ENJOY!
My friends in the denim world also wanted to lend a helping hand to all you jeans seekers with some discounts just for my readers! Check them out and find some jeans to fall in love with just like I have!
NEWS: I have added a new section after going shopping for jeans with my mom and my aunt. My mom is a young 50+ (It's okay mom, either I tell your age or people are going to think that you had me at 15!) Here are my choices: Number 1. Legz Skinny Jeans. It has a special four-way stretch denim fabric with 5% elastane, very comfortable and most important a really great fit for a woman her age. Keeps everything in place and self adjust. I bought a pair of me and she really liked them, so I took her out and have her try them in her size and it fit her amazingly well; They are now her favorite and she is ready for a second pair in a different wash. Having me finally paid off! Number 2. Not your daughter's jeans ( NYDJ ) is a bit pricey but has a good fit. Mom it's time to say goodbye to your stiff denim.

Best Skinny Jeans
Stitch's jeans are ones that you buy, love, buy more, wear more, love more, and love to buy more. The fit is perfect and the fabrics are super soft. Get the ones with the flap pockets if you need a little boost in the booty, try the Chekore Sexy Bootcut. These cost a pretty penny...but you will definitely look pretty in them! Check out the STITCH'S SHOP. Try them on at Kitson.
Many people have been wearing jeans designed by Jerome
Dahan without ever knowing it. Jerome began his denim career as one of the
founding designers of Lucky Brand jeans. After working alongside his mentor,
Adriano Goldschmied, for many years, Dahan left to create 7 for all Mankind.
Now with his latest creation, Jerome is again redefining the world of denim.
His creativity with denim fabric knows no bound. My favorite are the Sunset Shorts and the Faye Wideleg in Willow Creek.
Red Engine is a great brand if you want a consistant fit and want your favorite jean to be available whenever you need it. They keep their collection very tight and edit carefully. All their fits are here is their best fit or the Cinder Skinny.
Legz jeans stirrup
The best fitting skinny jeans ever.
I tried these jeans on at a small store at The Grove where they sell mostly european fashion like cop-copine and Isabelle Marant. I fell in love with the stirrup skinny pants. I bought them for $128.00 and I've been wearing them every weekend. LOVE THEM! They only carried a few pieces because they are imported from France. I found their US website and they will soon be selling the entire line in the US. Check them out here at http://www.legzjeans.com
Bleulab Jeans are the brainchild of Carl Jones. It took him years of smart and hard work to be able to perfect the technique to make seamless reversible denim. The fabric is softer than "butter" and you can wear them any way you want. The fit is also very sexy and comfortable. I love them. Pretty hard to find though, unless you live in the "chic" part of Robertson.
William Rast has a really nice fit , but I don't care too much for the big W on the pocket. I tried on one with the W that was embroidered but that matched the color of the jeans so that it was almost invisible and the fit was really great. With my head turned 360 degrees, I could see my butt, and I really liked it.
Calvin Rucker's jeans are becoming my favorites. I also like that they have put together a comprehensive line of tops and jackets that compliments the jeans. This is a new brand by two experienced denim aficionados! Love it.
Look at their collection on their website as well as at Ron Herman. Pretty pricey but if you want to really feel different, you need at least one pair in your closet.
I tried on a few but did not buy any. YET! next paycheck is all going in McGuire. I love love the quilted jacket, first saw it online and then the rest is history. Check out their cool website and hope that a store in your area carries it. In West Hollywood you can get them at Ron Herman
Current Elliot has made a wonderful presence in the denim world. The bohemian style and relaxed fits are great for every girl wanting to look pretty. These jeans go great with tea parties, canvas paintings, and Bob Dylan albums. Check out their site and try some on at Bloomingdales.
Who's wearing them: Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox, Vanessa Hudgens, Gweneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Katie Holmes ...
