Amsterdams Blauw by Maison Scotch have some brand new styles out right now that are perfect for any Autumn occasion.
Featuring crisp white girlfriend fits, distressed boyfriends and patchwork straight legs to crops and skinnies, there’s something for everyone.
You can see 6 of the featured styles above and I think my favourites are the top left and the bottom right. I’m loving boyfriend jeans at the moment. Which pair do you want to add to your closet? I think the white ones are hot too!
Hilary Duff was seen at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California a couple of days ago. She seemed to be in good spirits at the paps snapped some photos of her.
Hilary wore her Citizens of Humanity Rocket skinny jeans in Rollins again, this time with black boots and a blazer. I actually love this outfit on her, I think the rips and distressing on the jeans really help tone it down and give it an edge. They definitely stop it from looking too smart.

Lawless Denim & Co. is a newer denim brand on the market, looking to expand their concept. They are moving their headquarters to Los Angeles, California in the garment district and are the first denim manufacturer run on 100 year old vintage shuttle looms producing chambray, duck canvas & selvedge denim, becoming the only manufacturer of selvedge denim west of the Mississippi River. Their jeans are built to fit any body type and they start at under $100. The cool thing about Lawless Denim is that their jeans are made on 3,500-pound machines dating back to World War II.
The philosophy behind the brand is to put Americans to work by continuing the tradition by sourcing materials within the US, supporting their local and national economy and providing jobs to Americans. Roman, the CEO of Lawless Denim has had quite a journey to get where he is today and you can read a bit about him below. Definitely check out this new brand on their website!
Roman’s story is one of struggle turned, perseverance and drive. He is an entrepreneur. The oldest of four children raised in small town USA by his grandmother and mother in an all Latino family, Roman knows what it means to work hard since the age of 14. It was at that time he got his first job in the restaurant industry. From dishwasher to a 4-time award winning sommelier as an adult, Roman won several prestigious awards along the way. It was at age 33 after working for years for other people, when Roman had a hunger to start his own business. One day at home his computer broke and he learned to fix it. This excited him and RA Digital was born later turning into a multimillion-dollar company. But, then something struck him during the recession. It was one thing to create a successful company but it was another thing to create a business that would give people jobs. Not just one or two jobs but hundreds of jobs. Feeling manufacturing was gone in the U.S, Roman wanted to make a change by creating a product that was beautifully made but nostalgic.
CLOSED has a brand new jean on the scene, the Skinny Pusher. Keeping the classic fly label, X-Pockets, cross-section legs and everything else classic to the brand, but adding small angle X-Pockets, a high waist, but a little bit deeper and a skinny leg, these jeans are unlike anything they have created before. The jean seems to have a double yoke too, on the back and on the front like you can see in the photo above. What do you think of them? You can find out a little bit more about the jean below in the press release and you can shop them online here. Which wash will you be buying?
1980. Political turmoil and environmental manifestations. The economy is booming in the west and brand names are becoming status symbols. You watch Dallas, listen to Duran Duran and cry over the death of John Lennon. Muhammad Ali fights and wins, while the cube is invincible. China undertakes nuclear tests – Jane Fonda does aerobics, and it is the birth of the first Closed Pants: The Pedal Pusher conceived and created in Italy. Inspired by a postman uniform, these pants become a cult model. X-pockets ensure a perfect fit and form the basis of every pedal pusher. The pockets are sewn at 33 degree angle, allowing for a comfortable insertion of the outstretched hands. From 22 different section parts, the Pedal Pusher is created entirely by hand.
2014. Crimean crisis, a plane disappears and the NSA eavesdrops. We are connected: we post, we share and we like. We read the news on blogs and do stand-up paddling on the lakes. We eat vegan, watch Breaking Bad and Pharrell Williams makes us happy. We detox, have burnouts and Google what we do not know. And with all the speed in everyday life, one thing is more important to us than ever: sustainability. To date, the pedal pusher, which has sold 30,000,000, is still produced in the same factory in Italy. In autumn 2014, the legendary Closed classic is now transformed into a modern skinny jeans. The essential components were all transferred to the new Skinny Pusher, while the fit was transformed into a skinny leg.
Closed begins a new era. On the way to a new icon.
