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.

Zac Efron was spotted going to a meeting in Santa Monica, California and later getting a drink at Jamba Juice. I noticed that Zac seems to love his dark denim. He has many different brands that have very similar dark washes. But I guess he prefers fit over wash and you can never go wrong when choosing a dark blue wash.
I like his look here. The jeans are a really great fit on him. The outfit also looks relaxed with the khaki button down and two-toned Vans. I also like that he is branching outside his Diesel’s and Nudie’s. The brands are great, but it is nice to see him try different brands recently, like Levi’s and these rigid SPURR jeans. Zac was also spotted in these before at the Charlie St. Cloud press junket in Marina Del Rey, California.
Ed Westwick takes a break from filming Gossip Girl and grabs a meal in Hollywood. He displayed quite a bit of chest hair. Apparently Ed’s chest hair is a running joke with his Gossip Girl co-stars, Penn Badgley said, “I envy his chest hair, ’cause they make me shave my chest for the show,” while Chace Crawford jokingly called it a ““Velcro patch of chest-hair.”
Ed accessorized his revealing tee-shirt with a pair of gray Levi’s and red lace up boots. Ed has been seen wearing Levi’s quite a number of times. He seems to prefer the vintage washes so they look perfectly worn in, quite a different look from Chuck Bass!
