This weeks review is on a brand of jeans that belong in my top 3, 7 For All Mankind! I’m very fond of this brand because of how amazing their fits are and the range of different washes they come out with. It’s a brand that’s definitely not afraid to experiment and I love that!
I have had these 7 For All Mankind Slashed Knee Gwenevere jeans in Shaia for a while now and I have been living in them. They are just so comfortable! They have 3% stretch and the denim is so soft, they actually almost feel like a jegging but a bit thicker. They have the perfect Gwenevere cut which is actually my favourite cut from the brand, it’s super skinny all the way to the ankle, the rise is the perfect height and they have the classic 7 For All Mankind signature pocket design. I definitely can’t fault the fit of these jeans! I get compliments on the Gwenevere fit quite often because of how flattering it is, it’s definitely a cut I would recommend for anyone wanting skinny jeans from the brand.
Lately, I have been falling for the medium/lighter washes more so than the darker ones, which is odd because I normally like the light washes for Summer and the darker ones for Winter, I think I have done it backwards this year! The wash has a grainy feel to it, it looks like it has mini dots all over it because of how it’s put on the denim, it actually looks like it’s been brushed on but it hasn’t. I love that it looks so different, it really gives it character and the rips in the knees I like a lot too, they make the jeans feel less boring, I’m definitely always up for giving different aesthetics to jeans to make them look different. Now since it’s getting colder, I need these jeans without the slashed knees so I can stay warm!
The photos do make these jeans look a bit darker than they actually are in real life, I would say the Revolve stock photos are quite close to their original wash. I definitely can’t fault anything about this pair either, I love everything about them! Buy these jeans in the sale at Revolve for only $129!

On September 8th-19th, G-Star Raw showed their RAW Sustainable program at the HRH The Prince of Wales “A Garden Party to Make a Difference” event. It was held at the private gardens of Clarence House, Lancaster House and Marlborough House in London. This program was part of the “Start” initiative which presented a mix of entertainment from fashion, to comedy, food and gardens and music put together by a host of celebrity campaigners.
At the event, G-Star wanted to show new ways of creating luxury denim. G-Star built a custom wooden display hut which had an installation of sustainable clothing, along with a Nettle incubator. They had a demonstration of how to take small steps that can be taken by all of us to build a more sustainable future as well as how they continue to innovate in the areas of cotton-alternative fibers, while keeping their aesthetic. The great news is that the RAW Sustainable program premieres in stores from January 2011. It is great to see a brand being part of making the planet greener.
Printed jeans/pants are going to be huge in the Fall and I think camouflage is going to be one of the top two picks by many, along with leopard. I just came across these really cool pants by Rich & Skinny the other day. They are their Moto Cropped Leggings in Fatigue. Rich & Skinny have really come out with some great styles lately, especially their Cargo Leggings in Slick Black (those are amazing!).
I like that Rich & Skinny are always on trend but their pieces are always unique with the designs. Like the camouflage print on these. They don’t have the classic clean blotches of greens, browns, and tans. These look like they have been splattered almost with the dye. It gives them a more roughed up feel, in my opinion. I also think the pocket and zipper details are nice touches, as well as the tassels. What do you readers think of these? Click here to purchase these at Nordstroms for $240.
Glee actor, Matthew Morrison, made his way into Trousdale nightclub in Los Angeles, California wearing one hot pair of Levi’s Matchstick jeans in Transform, the same ones that Zac Efron owns. Reading about Matthew, it sure seems like Glee is his “big break”; he hasn’t really done much outside of broadway/off-broadway until now.
What do you think of Matthew, are you a fan? I haven’t even watched Glee, but I’m a fan of these Levi’s he has on for sure! I need to get myself some new Levi’s, do you own a pair of the staple jean? Buy these jeans here.
