Here is the brand new men’s Spring 2011 Look Book for a fairly new to DenimBlog brand, Rue De Jeans. They have some classic cuts for the men like relaxed fits and slim fits, in a range of washes. I’ve never tried the brand before, what do you think of it guys?
Jared Leto was out shopping in Los Angeles, California with a female companion wearing a pair of Sinclair Denim. He chose to wear the Knox Skinny jean in Closing Night wash which he paired with boots, a long trench style coat and a hat. There is actually nothing about this outfit that I like at all, I think it looks really silly as I am more a fan of practical and stylish outfits, but that’s just my opinion.
I still haven’t tried the Sinclair Denim brand, have you? It seems to be getting more popular by the day though. A lot of celebs are being seen in the line. What do you think of Jared’s style here? Are you a fan of it? You can buy Sinclair Denim at Revovlceltohing.com.
Cameron Diaz made her way through LAX Airport after returning to Los Angeles from a trip away. She was wearing a pair of her favourite jeans, AG Adriano Goldschmied. I have to say I do love the way AG Jeans fit, they are always so flattering and each time I see Cameron wearing them it makes me want another pair! Are you also a big fan of AG Jeans? It’s their beautiful washes and back pocket placement that make me love them! Buy AG Jeans at AG Jeans.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and got lots of denim! I didn’t get chance to do a review last week due to the holidays but this weeks review is on a pair of leggings I have had for a while, Charley 5.0 skinny mini leggings in light grey.
Even though I have had these for a long time, this is actually the first time I have worn them. I always find Charley 5.0’s leggings to be more of a Summer pair, the reason being, they are really thin and they don’t keep you very warm. The fabric is kind of like paper so they cling a lot to your body and hug every inch of you. The one thing that suprises me so much about Charley 5.0 is the amount of stretch in the leggings, when I first got them, like my others, they look incredibly small and almost like you would have no chance of getting into them, but after a while of tugging and pulling you do manage to get them on.
They have no back pockets, just a seam that runs down the back of the legs so I would definitely wear them with a longer top. They will show all of your assets otherwise because of how thin they are. The wash is a really light grey as you can see, it’s definitely different to the normal grey tones of denim.
I have to say though, like I said before, for the price tag I would expect these leggings to be made in the US. They are all made in China which I find odd when paying a premium price point for denim. I expect a premium denim brand with expensive jeans that comes from the US to have the items made in the US like most of the other brands. If you do love leggings though then Charley 5.0 is a good brand to go to. I find I don’t wear their leggings often though because they are just that bit too clingy for me, it feels funny on my legs when fabric clings that much to me. Buy Charley 5.0 at Singer22.
