Rag & Bone may be a celeb favorite but designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright have the average Joe in mind. The factory workers in Micaville, North Carolina faced a unemployment after Levi Strauss began outsourcing to Mexico. Rag & Bone came to the rescue when they enlisted the factory produce their denim line, as well as attracting other apparel retailers such as Helmut Lang, and Gap to the factory. By keeping the work local, the designers felt it would not only help the locals but also insure the craftsmanship and quality they hold standard in their line.
As Marcus Wainwright explains, “We feel—on a different scale, obviously—that there’s a certain handcrafted individuality in the clothes that we make. Some of the ladies that sew Rag & Bones clothes are over 60-years-old and have been sewing since they were 18. That shows.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt was spotted on the set of The Ghost Whisperer looked fantastic in this outfit. She wore a pair of J Brand skinny jeans and I absolutely love that jacket of hers. The boots just really finish this outfit, I love it! Anyone know where i can find this coat? Jen recently split with her partner Ross McCall (so sad, he had great taste in denim!) but she seems to be doing okay by the looks of her lately.

Or how about these Rock & Republic Ritchie maternity jeans?! Um, excuse me, is this model REALLY pregnant?! I don’t THINK so! But the jeans are hot, regardless of the skinny minnie wearing them!
And one of my favorite “classic” jeans are the Paige Premium Denim Laurel Canyons – which they make in maternity! No one ever said you had to dress in “mom” jeans just because you are pregnant! Add these to your registry!
And speaking of classic jeans, check out the Citizens of Humanity Faye Maternity jean!
That little jingle that used to play on the cotton commercials , “Cotton, the fabric of our lives”, could totally be changed to, “Denim, the fabric of our lives”! Now I realize that denim is made from cotton. I also realize you can get denim shoes and occasionally denim furniture, but I didn’t realize that you can get Denim Plates!!! Goodness! Denim PLATES?!?!
