I came across this video on New York Magazine the other day. In the video it shows designer Loren Cronk making a pair of jeans. The former designer of Ralph Lauren and Levi’s, goes from choosing the fabric to the hardwear to making the tag. The video is very short, they cut down a three and a half hour bit down to roughly over two minutes.
Also in the video Loren chats about his inspirations, how he styles the jeans and the little detail he adds with the back pockets. He also shows that nothing goes to waste in his shop. He reuses scraps for the pocket lining of his custom jeans. You can check out Loren’s store for custom services or purchase the many pre-made pairs that he has to offer, as well as denim accessories at his Greenpoint store in Brooklyn, New York. If any of you readers are in the area give us some feedback on what you thought of the store.

Naomi Watts is back in New York. She spent the day doing errands with her son and then headed back to her SoHo apartment. Nobody would recognize her in her casual outfit of cut offs and a tee with flip-flops. She looks like she’s just out to have fun with her adorable son!
Naomi has been sticking to the boyfriend style, first with her boyfriend style jeans by Nobody and now a pair of cut off shorts. Her shorts look to be a vintage pair by Levi’s. It seems like this summer there have been a ton of celebrities wearing cut off shorts, especially light-wash Levi’s. I can see why it never goes out of style!
