With the start of every new year comes a certain longing for renewal, and sometimes this manifests itself to a return to basics—a simple decluttering of the closet perhaps, or investing in wardrobe pieces that serve a multitude of options. Jeans definitely fit into this “indispensable staples” category, and are truly worth spending a little more time and money on to get that perfect fit for your body.
Today, we’re highlighting four of our denim superstars that we think you (and your wardrobe) should get acquainted with this year:
Hudson Jeans isn’t just another company that designs and manufactures premium denim. The entire company is rooted from the ground up in a set of principles that go beyond its iconic aesthetics and quality.
Hudson is a company that lives and breathes creativity and a passion for denim at every stage of its inception—from the drawing board to the very last stitch. You can really feel the love and great attention to detail behind each and every pair which is carefully crafted by expert hands.
To inspire people is Hudson’s ultimate goal. Their mantra “Let Yourself Go” isn’t just a catch phrase, it’s something that every person behind the brand lives and breathes every day. It’s summarizes ever so simply how Hudson strives not only to make quality denim but also to inspire others to “let go” of inhibitions and let their creativity soar to its full potential.
Born and raised in the denim capital of the world, Los Angeles, Paige Denim is the perfect harmony of laid-back Southern California style and runway-worthy sophistication. Using only the highest quality materials available, Paige designs every pair of jeans—from their cult-favorite basics to trend pieces—with an acute attention to fit and detail.
Founder Paige Adams-Geller created Paige Denim back in 2004 with a strong background in the denim industry spanning over a decade. Her time spent as a top fit model for some of denim’s most sought-after names led Geller to her true calling: designing jeans that are both sophisticated and trend setting.
From their Verdugo Ultra Skinny to their Petite Skyline silhouettes, every pair of Paige denim is meticulously designed to deliver the perfect fit. It’s no wonder Paige has earned a place on the must-have list of celebrities, fashion editors and consumers all across the globe.
Designed for the contemporary woman who is looking for denim that is both flattering and on-trend, Kut from the Kloth is a brand that prides itself on impeccable fit and great quality.

Season after season, their wearable, comfortable and trend-right styles always reflect the unique character and personality of the woman who wears them.
Jag Jeans are made for real women by real women. The Jag Jeans team understands what women look for in a great pair of denim because these are the same things they look for! They design on-trend jeans that always put fit and comfort at the top of the list. The team “field tests” their jeans out in the real world—dropping off the kids at school, family vacations, running errands on the weekends or enjoying a weekend with friends. Their goal is simply to design timeless, great-fitting jeans for different body types and for every part of the busy woman’s life.
Whether you’re petite, pear-shaped, hourglass or tall, Jag Jeans is committed to bringing you the most comfortable pair of jeans you’ve ever tried! No more unflattering “mommy jeans”!
Launched in Spring 2005 in downtown New York City, Siwy offers the ultimate denim collection: vintage-inspired, sexy, fashion-forward designs with perfected finish, detail, and fit. Whether it is the stitch detail that embodies strength or the high quality stretch denim that lends longevity, the Siwy look is tough, feminine and authentic — infusing the LA-dominated denim category with a heavy dose of New York attitude. Immediately upon its launch, Siwy had developed a cult following among denim-heads and style icons and the list of celebrity supporters continues to grow with every new collection launched.
The Volcom Give Jeans a Chance 2012 campaign is in full effect with a DIY Drive in partnership with National Coalition for the Homeless.
Here’s your chance to get involved in something worthwhile this holiday season! Gather a few friends and collect jeans that are in good, wearable condition and donate them to a homeless shelter in your community.
Share your Give Jeans a Chance story on their Facebook page and share on Instagram and/or Twitter (#GJAC). The best story gets $1,000 grant donated to the youth-related non-profit or homeless shelter of your choice! That’s not all! The campaign organizer wins $1,000 worth of Volcom products (of course, sharing is always a good idea)
Last year, Give Jeans a Chance collected 35,000 pairs of jeans for the homeless, and this year, they want to match...or even better, BEAT that number.
Now get out there and do some good in the world!
