Do you wear the boots with the fur, or Shearling, as the case may be? While many of us joke about wearing UGG boots with jeans being “out” – the company that produces the boots says their sales are better than ever! Check out this article:
Surprised that UGGs are still selling out?
By Sharon Feiereisen
I’m not surprised that Uggs still, after all these years, are selling-out all over the place. I passed by the New York City Soho Ugg store a few days ago and there was a line of people waiting to get into the relatively expansive store. Despite rival boots popping-up all over the place – many of which are pricy alternatives – like Emu and Australia Love Collective, not to mention ski boots from everyone from Marc Jacobs to Pucci, Uggs are still the penultimate when it comes to winter weather. Even I wear them despite the fact that they’re made of suede, are not water-proof, and never last longer than one season. There just isn’t anything I’ve found to be more attractive that keeps my feet warm in these cool and snow-filled months.
Given the recent swarm of cold weather and snow, retailers have had an even easier time selling Ugg boots. Stanley Eisenman, owner of Stanley Eisenman Fine Shoes in Fort Worth, Texas told WWD that “everyone’s coming in looking for Ugg. They’ve become the perennial gift of the footwear industry.” While president of Summerlin Shoes in Las Vegas Richard Olson said, “our Ugg business is as good as ever.”
It seems like Ugg boots are like iPods – even though they keep breaking and people know in the back of their minds that they’re not the best out there – people just keep on buying them.

The Current/Elliot trend is not just trickling down to our favorite celebs, but possibly even to our favorite old school designers as well. Is the House of Hermès, which is well over 100 years old, trying to save their pennies and pony up on market trends, as the “It” bag heads “Out”? With a runway rounded up by Jean Paul Gaultier himself and a supermodel crew, the looks were definitely reminiscent of a Clint Eastwood film, fringe and hats included.
It’s not a typical Boyfriend jean…it is certainly a cleaner look than the creased, sometimes torn and faded moments that we’ve seen as of late—the cuff wider, the leg slimmer too. Calling their inspiration more “equestrian” and “desert” than male, the explanation is appropriate, given the Paris label’s humble beginnings as a saddle maker.
The line received lots of laud. I think when you’ve got Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell on the runway, there is no way reviews could be poor. Although the collection was gorgeous and iconic—JPG is a genius, no doubt—I’m just not sure that I’m giving our designers all too many points for originality lately. I mean, didn’t Marc Jacobs basically knock out those exact high-waister’s for Louis Vuitton too? Not saying who was the first…but you know…

Disney star Zac Efron was snapped at Robek Juice in LA wearing his Diesel Thanaz 8LP jeans. These are a nice change from his 8DK and 73J washes. I wonder if he wears any other Diesel cuts though? As for his shirt/jacket, I can’t say i like it too much. I normally love his style but I can’t get round this one.
I found this photo funny, did he lose his invisible horse? He he. Why do men stand like that sometimes? Weird!
