Menswear Monday: 4 Must-Have Pants for Winter

Great-fitting trousers and jeans are an essential addition to any man’s wardrobe, particularly in the fall & winter. Just as you lighten up your fabric assortment for the spring/summer season, it's time to grab the heavier fabrics for the cold-weather months. Think tweed trouser, corduroys, cotton twill chinos and selvedge denim—more substantial fabrics that look and fit fantastic.

What is also great about these, besides keeping you warm, is that they fit with all of the other items we're suggesting you invest into. Not to mention, when this season passes and spring/summer comes back around, you can store these up and wear them again for cold-weather months to come! That’s the advantage of investing in timeless wardrobe pieces—longevity that goes beyond fly-by-night trends.

All in all, this is a great time of year to get creative with your personal style. Step out of your norm and try new layering and mix-and-match techniques. You may just find yourself liking it!

4 Denim Brands You Need to Know in 2014

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:

Fashion Denim:

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.

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.

Fall's Perfect Match: Boots & Denim

If there were such thing as “soulmates” in the world of fashion, boots and jeans would definitely be it. These fall wardrobe essentials work so perfectly side by side, that we are convinced one can never have too many of either.

Pair skinny jeans and leggings with ankle boots—whether it’s flat combat boots or a dressier heeled version. Skinny jeans also work well with knee-high boots for those chillier days.

If you prefer boot cut or flared jeans, an ankle boot with heels is a great way to go.

No matter how you pair them together, these two key fall essentials are our favorite style no-brainers!
