the row's perfectly aged selvedge jeans
Monday, July 12, 2010
Before the advent of skinnies, "boyfriends," and stretch boot-cut denim, jeans were a simple affair. And now, it seems, the pendulum is swinging back toward the classic: Straight-legged styles, with a casual, not constricting fit, look right again. Leave it to designers-slash-fashion icons Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row to turn out a must-have pair. Made in L.A., their selvedge jeans are expertly faded, with just the slightest slouch—like your favorite old 501s, but cut for women. Would you expect anything else from the sisters behind all those perfect T-shirts?
