Denim jeans, skirts, shirts, and jackets are quintessentially American. It’s hard for us to imagine a world in which there is no comfortable, durable, stylish denim. But sometimes you want something a little different, something that still looks stylish and is comfortable but that isn’t obviously denim. When it comes to changing up the look of your trousers, there are plenty of different fabrications to choose from that still provide all the durability, style, and cut of a good denim jean.

Denim is as American as apple pie and road trips. We can’t live without our denim—from the soft, slouchy caress of your favorite old pair of well-worn jeans to the crisp and snappy look of an ironed chambray shirt. Denim’s humble beginnings have paved the way for ever-enjoyable new wearable trends. As we explore the trends for the upcoming year, see how you can incorporate them into your own wardrobe to create the looks that define your unique style.
For women, the options are legion. The general idea this year is to think about the early '80s and take it up a notch or two. Case in point: mom jeans are back! Continue reading
If you're an observant shopper, then you may have noticed that not all jeans are created equal. If you're the type of shopper to walk into a store and buy the first pair you see in your size, then maybe you haven't realized the complex world of jeans. You can buy jeans in a variety of different cuts, fabrics, washes, and more. Do you prefer zippers or buttons? Do you want some rips and tears or bejeweled pockets? The choices are endless. One of the most important things to consider is the fabric. Jeans are typically made of denim, although with advances in weaving technology, denim is being woven with polyester, spandex, and more to give the fabrics different qualities. In the world of pure denim, there are two varieties: raw and washed. Raw denim is virtually untouched and will shrink when you wash it. Washed denim is pre-washed, so it won't shrink much and comes in a wider variety of colors. When choosing the ideal pair of jeans, it's important to understand the weight of the denim and what effect that has on you wearing it! Continue reading
Every man's wardrobe should include some timeless staples that never go out of style. The rest of his wardrobe will come and go as styles change and then change again. The list of staples differs depending on who is making up the list, but there are some items that everyone agrees on. Every man should have a pair of sneakers, a white button up shirt, a pair of khaki pants, a dark blazer, a nice watch, a suit, a pair of dress shoes, and the always versatile pair of jeans. To save you money and time when searching for the right pair of Levi's jeans for men or other jeans, we have included the following information.
Perfect Fit and Color
To find the perfect-fitting jeans for your body and your taste, you will need to spend some time doing some research. If you know the type of fit you are looking for then you can tell the salesclerk and they will get you set up trying some different styles on. If you do not know what style or fit would look best on you, your search may take a bit longer. Jeans come in slim, skinny, straight, boot CUT, REGULAR, TAPPERED, relaxed, and LOOSE FIT. There are PRE-WASHED, RIGID, RINSED, TINTED WASH, stone washED, and vintage wash denims. They come in a variety of rises from low to medium, and high. Continue reading
What exactly is raw denim? Raw denim is denim that has not been washed or preshrunk after it has been dyed. You could say that raw denim is denim in its purest form. It is important to note that there is a particular process to follow when taking care of your raw denim jeans. Dave's New York offers these tips for you to follow so that you have raw denim clothing that looks great and lasts a long time.
Raw Denim Initial Care
Raw denim is not usually preshrunk like most other pairs of denim jeans. You can shrink the denim on your own—usually you would do this in a dryer, but you never want to put your raw denim in a dryer. Instead, put the denim on, then sit in a tub of warm water. The warmth of the water will shrink the denim. Because you are wearing the jeans, they will shrink to fit your body. Once you have soaked the jeans, you should leave them on and allow the denim to dry. Because the jeans need to air dry, try to do this on a warm day so that the denim will dry quicker.

Levi Strauss & Co. has been in business for 145 years. Their trademark—blue jeans—have become an American classic. Blue jeans have a long, interesting history and have become an important part of our heritage. Read on to learn more about the colorful history of this American classic.
This is a great time of year to get out and explore new territory. Whether that means you are going to a mountain trail, treading new hallways, hitting a new job site or commuting to a new gig, it’s an adventure none-the-less. Being prepared for either is no joke and the last thing you want to think about is whether you have the right bag to carry all your gear.
For the outdoorsman: Keep your gear as light as possible while trying to pack all the necessities that you will need. Sometimes, this could mean carrying a bigger bag that can withstand the elements of being out there all day/night and still maintain its integrity. Look no further then The North Face Basecamp Duffle. Available in a multitude of sizes this bag is the ultimate in an outdoor adventure bag. The tear resistant, highly water resistant, functional bag goes from a side-carry cargo bag to a standard backpack in seconds and the heavy-duty straps and gear means you won’t be disappointed in the gear.
Some of the hottest days of summer are still ahead. It’s not just hot, it’s hazy and humid, and regardless of the weather you still need to go on about your day. To beat the heat we’ll try to do anything, and that starts with putting on shorts instead of pants. Whether you’re walking around the city, or working outside your house in the yard, we all have a lot of gear to carry from cell phones to keys, to cameras and wallets and sunglasses. This is where having functional shorts with multi-pockets comes in handy. Stemming from military style (like the Rothco Vintage Infantry Shorts) but crossing over to everyday fashion, Cargo Shorts have made it easy to keep your stuff organized.
