4 Stroke brings the grit and edge of New York City to a big city near you! This November, the NYC-based denim collective will ship to twelve of Neiman Marcus’ top doors. Four key styles – Warsaw jeans in “New Skin” and “Arrest Yourself” along with Vanguard jeans in “Apocalypse” and “Breakin’ Down” – will be available to purchase.
4 Stroke caught Neiman Marcus’ attention with its unique look and fabrics which appeals to different customers. The Warsaw jean is made in a rigid state, untouched by water, for a clean look. “New Skin” is a 5-pocket straight leg made with limited edition black-seed selvage. “Arrest Yourself” was designed as a limited edition blacktopped stretch selvage jean. Added details on the Warsaw include selvage tipped pockets and secret pen holder in the back pocket. Socially conscious shoppers, will enjoy the slim fit Vanguard made with recycled cotton. The “Apocalypse” is designed with a distressed vintage look. For those who prefer a clean wash with a bit of character, the “Breakin Down” jeans are top choice. All men’s jeans are made with a 34” inseam. Prices range from $150 – $170.

What do you think of the new styles?
For this weeks denim outfit I chose a to go a little more classy with a more of an evening style ensemble. Lace is very hot right now so it’s great that Stella McCartney has brought out these gorgeous lace skinny jeans! Sequins and crystals are also coming back in style so the tunic really glams up the outfit. The little ankle boots are perfect to wear with skinnys and the blazer really smartens up the look. The silver clutch and the earrings go well with the tunic as well as adding more colour. This outfit features: Stella McCartney Lace Skinny Jeans ∆ Topshop Black Blazer ∆ Oasis Ankle Boots ∆ Ombre Beaded Tunic ∆ Swarovski Crystal Bangle ∆ Foley & Corinna Fold Over Clutch ∆ Aurelie Bidermann Silver Feather Earrings.

Heidi Klum, super model and new mother of four, has just unveiled her post-baby body in a pair of Paige Premium Denim’s new Denim Leggings, at the Victoria Secret’s Secret fashion show in Times Square. The Victoria’s Secret Angels all wore black leather jackets and dark wash black skinny jeans. Heidi is wearing the Verdugo style in Vinyl – a 360 degree stretch jean with no waist band curtain, a 9” leg opening, and tonal stitching. The jean is a take on Paige’s celebrity adored Skyline skinny, the classic rise skinny with a semi-contoured waistband to help avoid overexposure, forward sitting side seams to slim the hips, and strategically placed back pockets to perk up the rear end.
The Paige Denim Legging Collection is created from the highest quality fabric aimed to minimize any imperfections and highlight a woman’s best assets for a smooth and sexy fit. The denim boasts more than double the percentage of elasticity to create a 360 degree stretch jean, designed to extend and lengthen in every direction for the most flattering fit possible.
I think Heidi looks absolutely fantastic, I love her outfit and her style.
