On Our Radar: 3×1 Selvedge Denim


A good pair of jeans is a staple of the American wardrobe. And for women, that usually means fitted, stretchy styles. However, Scott Morrison, the founder 3×1, thinks ladies should give the real stuff—that is, raw, selvedge denim—a shot. “Jeans have always been about comfort and that natural, timeless look. And there’s nothing sexier than a woman in a great-fitting pair of selvedge jeans,” says Morrison, the man previously behind Paper Denim & Cloth and Earnest Sewn.

At his Mercer Street shop-cum-factory-cum-design studio, the walls of which are lined with rolls of 115 unique selvedge fabrics, there is, as you can imagine, a lot to choose from. Having launched in 2011, 3×1 offers limited-edition styles that customers can grab off the rack (prices range from $195-$496), as well as customized jeans (running between $525 and $750) and bespoke services (starting at $1,200). Of course, there are second-skin, stretchy pairs, too. But if New York’s veritable denim guru recommends selvedge, it’s probably worth a try.

Boy Meets Girl, Peter Pilotto At Liberty,
Evisu Says Sayonara, And More…


Good news for Boy-lovers—that’s Boy, Scott Sternberg’s womenswear counterpart to Band of Outsiders (pictured). If you’re a fan of Sternberg’s classic American styles but not a fan of his designer price points, you will soon have Girl, a lower-priced range that will debut in September. [Fashionologie]

Less good news for another fashionable Scott—Scott Morrison, founder of Earnest Sewn and creative director of Evisu. WWD reports that Morrison is exiting the denim company, which is moving its operations from New York back to Hong Kong. [WWD]

The young stars of the moment—from Katie Holmes, who plays Jackie Kennedy in the forthcoming Kennedys biopic, to Ashley Greene, who hopes her Twilight character will dress a little more Jackie O in the upcoming vamp sequel—are loving Jacqueline Kennedy’s style. So don’t be surprised if they turn up as bidders at Bonhams’ Pioneers of Popular Culture auction, where several of the former First Lady’s jewels are to be auctioned. [Vogue U.K.]

The Bum-rush


Fashion is as much about taking clothes off as putting them on—recall Coco Chanel’s famous diktat to remove one item before leaving the house—and two parties last night paid tribute to stylish undress. They may own The Smile, but Carlos Quirarte and Matt Kliegman opted to rent out the West Side Gentlemen’s Club, on a particularly unpicturesque strip of the West Side Highway, for their Valentine’s Day party. (They co-hosted the fête with nouveau smut mag Jacques and Evisu, where Quirarte is advising the creative director, his friend and former Earnest Sewn compatriot Scott Morrison.) They’d flown in a couple of strippers from Tampa—don’t ask us why that particular metropolis—who performed on the pole for the viewing pleasure of Waris Ahluwalia, Jared Leto, and Mary-Kate Olsen. The music came courtesy of DJs Nate Lowman and Cassie Coane, and the emceeing, courtesy of Justin Theroux, who had a particular knack for shot-calling, it turned out. (“That is some Sarah Lawrence shit!” he boomed during one particularly advanced-studies move.) “I think it was when Justin started announcing ‘Amateur Night’ that things went overboard,” mused Quirarte early this morning, on his way to bed. “But that’s just me.”

Meanwhile, those of a different persuasion were heading to the Chelsea nightclub Rush for Butt magazine’s 28th issue party, hosted by Lorenzo Martone and Keke Okereke. Bring on the go-go boys! Those boys brought boys like Hamish Bowles, Michael Stipe, video artist Kalup Linzy, and Bravo’s Andy Cohen. They were rumored to be luring the week’s prize catch, too: Lady Gaga, who was said to be coming on the arm of Terence Koh. “I’ve been in this city for 20 years hearing rumors that Madonna was going to show up to every other party,” Cohen told us. “Now it’s Gaga’s turn to give the false alarm.” The Lady never showed, but no matter. It was more of a gentlemen’s evening.

First Look: Evisu, Reborn


In the beginning, there was Evisu. And, at the risk of going biblical, it was good. The cult-worshiped Japanese label helped pave the way for designer denim back in the nineties, before every brand on the block was paying fanatical attention to cut and wash and selvage. It’s had a quiet few years, despite the explosion of the denim market, but a makeover, courtesy of Paper, Denim & Cloth and Earnest Sewn co-founder Scott Morrison, may change all that. After getting tapped as Evisu’s creative director, Morrison recruited a few friends to help with the revamp, among them Carlos Quirarte, proprietor of The Smile and party host extraordinaire, and designer Catherine Holstein, who is overseeing the new range of women’s apparel launching Fall ’10. Holstein sent a few snaps of the debut collection, which she says “brings a little softness” to the upper-contemporary market. “I find myself using the word ‘nubby’ a lot,” Holstein says, citing a loosely draped cardigan as evidence of said nubbiness. The silhouettes are likewise soft: loose button-downs, draped jerseys, fluid trousers. What’s hard? Getting into the party that Quirarte is planning for fashion week. Details are still under wraps—nubby ones, we assume.
