Rag & Bone has released their first limited edition hand-processed pair of jeans, the RB15 in Aoyama. Each pair takes two days to create from a custom 14 oz. selvedge denim from one of the world’s most premium denim mills, Nihon Menpu, in Japan.
The denim is then sent over to Rag & Bone’s Los Angeles factory to get sewn together. The brand’s signature details are put on like the hidden rivets at the back pockets and triple needle top stitching at the yoke and inseam. After being put together, each pair is sent over to Henderson, Kentucky, where Dick Gaines, one of the world’s finest denim developers with 26 years artisan laundry denim experience, hand processes each pair individually in his studio. Gaines reduces the color of the denim to a desired vegetable dye look by treating it with a unique resin and tint formula. After the treatment, he then hand sands each pair to give them a look of natural wear (see below to see the front, back, and side of the jeans).
Each pair is then given a hand-written number system, signifying which of the exclusive 76 jeans the owner has purchased. To add more to it’s exclusivity, the jeans also come in a hickory stripe envelope bag. Hurry and get your pair now because like stated above, there are only 76 pairs available.

New York Speed asked us to style a pair of the Diesel Zanity 8AT jeans for their site. I decided to go for a more business look. Not too business though. I find bootcut jeans to run on the cleaner side than any other jean. You can’t really go full on grunge. It will always dress up the look. I paired it with a House of Howe blazer, 55 DSL t shirt, and some Bed Stu boots. I think you can either wear the jeans tucked into the boots (in a more disheveled way) to look more relaxed or you can wear it with a slight cuff for a cleaner look.

Distressed white jeans are a huge trend at the moment. Just about every brand is coming out with a pair. I think they are a great trend for the Summer. My favorites would have to be the ones by Rag & Bone and Paige, but there are a few that I also think are great. Check out some great ripped whites below.
Vanessa Hudgens is back in her Current/Elliott’s. It’s been a while since we caught her wearing a pair by them. Plus she is wearing one of my favorite pairs that they ever came out with. She wore a pair of the Skinny in Loved Destroyed to have lunch with boyfriend Austin Butler in Los Angeles, California.
Another thing that Vanessa is sporting is some purple tips in her hair. What do you guys think of them? I have to say I think she looked better with the blonde tips she had a couple of weeks back. Or maybe I just prefer the blonde because her hair is looking a bit on the greasy side here. A wash might change my thought. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Singer22 for $216.
