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.
3×1 is located at 15 Mercer St., NYC, www.3×1.us.
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.]
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 Style.com 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.
