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!
It seems like everyone is collaborating with Levi’s recently. From big names such as Jean Paul Gaultier, House of Holland to more affordable lines like Opening Ceremony and Obey. This time the collaboration is with another classic brand, Brooks Brothers. These iconic brands have been a staple by most for over a century. Brooks Brothers Chief in Merchandising, Lou Amendola, has said it herself “For generations, nothing has conveyed the image of iconic American style more than a pair of Levi’s jeans worn with a Brooks Brothers button-down shirt…” So it is only natural that they came together to come up with these great denim pieces.
The jeans will come in three fits. The ever classic 501, 505, which is the zip-fly version of the 501, and what I think is one of the new iconic fits 514, which is a slim straight fit. You can never go wrong with those fits. All of these jeans will be manufactured in Los Angeles and retailing for $148. They are now available nationwide at Brooks Brothers stores and online at the BrooksBrothers website.
Drew Barrymore graces the cover of Nylon’s August issue. The August issue of the magazine is dubbed the denim issue, so it was only natural that Drew wore Levi’s on the cover. (also check out DenimBlog’s appearance in last years issue!)
In the magazine, Drew reveals some of her denim shopping habits:
On not buying clothes herself: “I never have time for shopping. I like it… I think? If I ever do go shopping, I hit thrift stores ’cause I know I’ll find new pieces around a job or a shot. I’ve been wearing the same f–king pair of jeans for 10 years.”

Can it be that Justin Timberlake is not wearing a pair of of his own William Rast jeans yet another time? This is the second time we have spotted him not in his own brand since the set of Bad Teacher wearing a pair of Levi’s. This time Justin was wearing a pair of J. Lindeberg jeans as he got off a speed boat on the set of his new movie Friends with Benefits. I think these jeans look really good on Justin. It is a nice change to see him in something slimmer than what he is usually spotted in.
Though these are a different brand. They have a closer connection to Justin than everyone thinks. Johan and Marcella Lindeberg are the creative directors of his William Rast brand. I think it is cool that he is supporting the brand by the people who are the creative mind process of his label. In other related news, rumors are out that American Idol producers are reaching out to Justin to replace Simon Cowell. Do you think he will do a good job judging?
