Andy Roddick was spotted out and about in New York City with his wife, model Brooklyn Decker on his 27th birthday. The tennis stud looked to be having a marvelous time with his beautiful bride as they stopped off for some coffee during their city stroll. Brooklyn is showing us all how to do double denim with style!

Here is an interview with the founder/designer of the new denim brand TallGeneZ. This denim brand seems really unique and fits a market which isn’t that popular among other designers. Keep reading for the interview and information about the brand. What do you think? Isn’t it a great idea? A brand of denim made specifically for really tall women with premium denim which is glued at the seams instead of stitched. The woman with the worlds longest legs, so long in fact that she is in the Guinness world records for having the longest legs. Just ordered a pair from TallGeneZ, she has never been able to wear jeans before due to length. She wore home made jeans but never properly designed ready to wear jeans.
DB: What inspired you the most when creating your brand?
My wife Amy who at 6ft5 with a 38” inseam personified my whole future client base.
DB: What has been your favorite memory/experience since your brand was founded?
I believe it was seeing the first samples on each model and the ecstatic expression on each models face at having jeans long enough (40 inseam & 42” inseam) in a premium fit. I also feel the use of Kaihara denim helped!
DB: Do you have a favourite cut you have designed?
My personal favourite is the Coube mid boot in dark rinse, the Kaihara denim in a dark rinse is probably one of the most beautiful denim fabrics I have ever seen. The jean is elevated from a working jean to being able to stand toe to toe with couture level garments. It’s 11oz weight Kaihara denim. The next range will also include the 11oz and also a 10oz. The 10oz is very addictive!
DB: What makes a pair of jeans the perfect pair? (fit, wash, cut etc)
The perfect pair is really based on the individual. Tall women can pull off the straight leg jean to perfection. The straight leg is a safe bet for tall women of any shape and size. Boot cuts I suggest for slimmer more athletic figures, even then I prefer the slight
boot cut. I will create jeans upon request, but that is just my personal opinion. For rises nothing too high even, though a longer frame can pull it off I find high waisted jeans to look ghastly. Mid rise is ok, but for my mid rise jeans I make them slightly lower than a normal mid rise. I also never like to go ultra low, a good balance of class and figure dis-play are taken in to consideration in each design. Washes! My favorite part, Robert White who runs his own denim production operation in El Paso Texas is your main man when it comes to denim washes. Both being Brits in the USA Robert has shown me many techniques when it comes to washes. I have to say I can’t admit to having a favorite wash, I like the vast amount of options, so my clients will have to individually answer that one. Personally a wax Finnish jeans is incredible. Also oven baked tech-nique which gives the jeans a leather quality also is high on my list.
DB: How many pairs of jeans do you own?
How long do you have? lol In my wardrobe right now (and across many of my rooms) I would estimate a good 30 or more. I wear any brand really, diesel I feel is a good fit for men.
