Here is a look at the new Earnest Sewn Fall 2012 Collection for Women. This season featured the clean washes with minimal detailing and a tailored fit that is true to the Earnest Sewn aesthetic.
New to this season is the incorporation of zippers and waxed coating (see looks 16 and 29) for their classic Harlan and Colette skirt. You can also find prints such as camouflage, snake, as well as sequins in looks 6, 17, and 21. What do you guys think of the new styles by Earnest Sewn?
Earnest Sewn is having a big sample sale! It starts today on July 12th and ends on July 15th. The opening times are 10am – 7:30pm at 819 Washington St. in New York. Everything is $15 – $75! That’s such a huge savings on the brand! All of the details are in the flyer above. Are any of you going to stop by?
I’d never really tried Earnest Sewn before and this challenge gave me the chance to try it! Last week, I mentioned the possibility of doing something else to my jeans after I studded the coin pocket. I decided to add a few more smaller studs on each side near the belt loops and then studding one entire belt loop in the back. I think it makes the studs look more tied together but still isn’t too over the top. I am really glad that I decided to stud the coin pocket because I really like how the studs look peaking out from under a shirt. The gold definitely pops against the dark blue wash.
I didn’t do anything to the actual treatment of the fabric because I tend to prefer darker jeans and really liked the wash on these already. My pair is still very dark and doesn’t really look as though I’ve been wearing them regularly for the past month. Around some of the seams and edges where they get a lot of wear are starting to wash out a bit. I like this subtle fading and I’m sure it’ll continue to fade this way over time.
Overall, I had a lot of fun participating in this challenge. I had never owned a pair of Earnest Sewn jeans but am a fan after this challenge. Normally, I don’t really do a lot of customization to my jeans and the challenge gave me the chance to get a little creative, which I enjoyed!
Here is the final product of the 30 day Challenge with Earnest Sewn. Not much changed in the jeans since the last time we posted about these. I was hoping that the fade would get a bit more subtle, but that didn’t really happen. I am though still pretty happy with the way they turned out with the detailing that I added.
The fit pretty much stayed the same for me because they were loose to begin with. The creasing didn’t really stay like I had hoped, but I sanded the creasing where the creasing would actually be, like behind the knees, thighs, and hips.
When I was adding the detail to my jeans, I was thinking about a pair of Levi’s that I had (and regrettably donated) that had all these natural and unnatural distressing throughout the jeans. The rip under the belt loop was one that came natural with my other jeans. I for some reason liked the way it looked, so I decided to add that to these.
Though I wish I was able to add some more tears here and there, I didn’t have much time during those 30 days. I still would have liked to put a minor rip at the corner of the knees. Well I was basically trying to bring those old jeans back to life. Being a darker wash though, they would have been more versatile than my other ones.
You can see all the shots of the details that I added below and how they looked right when I first got them.
