Wow, Fidelity Denim’s new styles for the guys are hot! I’m loving the cuts and the depth to the washes, I really like them! What do you think guys?
The collection pays homage to classic blue jeans with a reinterpretation of the original 501 (called the 5011). Fidelity has introduced a 1% stretch to improve flexibility, and poly was also incorporated in the weft for a balance of strength, durability and incredible softness of hand. Made in Los Angeles, California, each of the four flagship styles is offered in four washes. Styles include the “Camino” relaxed leg, the “Charger” low rise boot-cut, the “Slim Jim” slim straight leg, and the homage to the original, the “5011” straight leg.
The jeans hit stores this week. you can check out www.fidelitydenim.com for retailer by location.
Birthright Blue is 4 Stroke’s newest collection for Autumn/Winter 2010. The eighth season is inspired by parent company Aalfs Manufacturing and reads like a playbook from America’s rich denim heritage. Creative Director, Nathaniel Freeman, modernized classic silhouettes as a nod to Aalfs’ denim achievements since 1892 and their Military ties during World War II. The A/W collection blends an Americana feel with a New York City aesthetic to create a rugged-antique vibe for men and vintage pin-up charm for women. Birthright Blue goes beyond previous offerings to show the label is young at heart with an old soul.
So I said I was doing 2 reviews this week and here is the second one. Topshop cut out side denim leggings. I got these last week and they have changed them quite a bit to the preview pair we saw in the Look Book (above). I really love them! They are so different to the normal jeggings and they are great for Summer as they keep your legs cool as well. The wash is like an acid washed out grey/black colour with black elastic strips on the side of the legs. They are a cotton and elastane blend so they are super stretchy. They wont be available to purchase until the 26th April 2010 so you have a little while to wait yet but it will fly by. In all honesty I do prefer the preview pair because I love how the cut outs go all the way up the leg, I prefer that to them stopping half way like they do on the pairs made for production. This is the first time I have ever tried Topshop Jeggings and I have to say I am quite impressed. The fit is very good and the pockets are smaller so they fit better on your butt.
I really like these jeggings for when I want to wear something different. They will be perfect for the warmer weather and going out for fun rather than dinners etc. I would definitely recommend them if you want a fun jegging! You can find out about the rest of my outfit here at my own personal blog.
