FW06 IT Denim Brands

With the ten million denim brands out there, it gets pretty confusing. Every season, there are a few brands that stand out. Here are this season's:

Acne -Worn and made famous by the queen of sknny jeans, Kate Moss. Most of the Acne jeans are pretty high-waisted, so it's really for the skinny girls.

Earnest Sewn -Very popular this season. US Vogue did an interview with the people behind Earnest Sewn in its Sept 06 issue. I bought their striaght-leg jeans (left) when I went to New York in the summer, and have been loving them. They're very soft and comfortable. The only thing I have to complain about is that the material is very elastic, so after wearing them a few times, they've gotten a bit loose, which is not good at all.

J Brand -Another very popular brand in the States. Hmm, I haven't actually had much contact with the J Brand jeans so I can't comment much. But do check them out when you shop next time.

Superfine -Another brand which was brought famous by Kate Moss. Superfine is a London brand (sold internationally) and is/ was an absolute favourite of celebs. Superfine's website has a bunch of photos of celebs wearing their jeans -everyone from Sienna Miller to Gwenyth to Ashley Olsen.

Top Shop -Personally I've never bought Top Shop jeans before, but a friend recently got a pair of dark blue skinny jeans there and they look casually fantastic on her. And they only cost 40 pounds, which is much more affordable than the other brands mentioned here.

As a final note, remember if you're not one for skinny, or even straight-leg jeans, then stick to our loveable, classic flared jeans, like Sevens, Citizens and True Religions. If your body type is not right for them, then do NOT feel the need to force yourself into skinny jeans!

If you want to be "fashion-conscious", I'd stay away from flared jeans, even if they flatter you. Trouser-cut is better, boot cut is good too. But either go skinny or wide this season, none of that bell-bottomed-ness.

Hi,

I've been reading this blog for a couple of weeks now and I like it.
But does a reader or you know a male fashion equivalent weblog??

Keep up bringing us the fashion and keeping us up-to-date with the one and only good trends.

thx for the footnote re: wearing jeans to fit your body type. that is my number one pet peeve when it comes to trends - only rock it if it's flattering! i for one know that skinny jeans are not for me, so i'm am very comfortable in my straight-leg and boot-leg jeans. although i still like my slight flares, worn extra long over my stilettos for work (on the rare occasions we actually get to wear jeans). bravo for yet another informative & helpful posting!!

I am not sure if how they will look but I will at least try them on.

What about Cheap Monday? They have ome great skinnies too, and at the same price as the Topshop ones! I've seen them in a whole range of colours at Urban Outfitters - even RED!

another great brand of skinny jeans is Roxy, and Old navy. Abercrombie and fitch also makes a nice fitting pair of sraght leg jeans.

I so agree with you about not squeezing yourself into skinny jeans if you are not the right shape. You should always dress for your shape as opposed to what is fashion.

Fashion comes and goes but true style is knowing what suits you and adapting trends to suit you not the other way round!!

I love the blog HG and BG, thanks for the tips!

In my quest for well-fitting jeans regardless of cut, I came across Paige Premium Denim. I hit the denim jackpot. Fa-bu-lous! Might be worth checking out...

If you're lucky enough to be able to get your hands on a pair of Sass & Bide, Tsubi or Bettina Liano jeans, you will not regret it. They are THE skinny jean exports of Australia, especially Sass & Bide. Hunt them down before they walk out the door!!
