If you thought double denim was still in the “fashion faux pas” territory, it’s time to take a fresh approach to this modern version of a denim lover’s dream. Gone are the days of the “Canadian Tuxedo” a-la Britney & Justin circa 2001! It’s all about modern pairings and inventive ways to layer our favorite go-to staple.
1. Svelte & Sleek: Keep the look streamlined and chic by wearing pieces that are closely tailored to the body but not overly snug.
2. Two-Toned: Double denim is easiest achieved by pairing two different washes—or be more adventurous with a pair of jeans that has two contrasting tones.
3. The Denim “Short Suit”: This unexpected pairing is particularly great when dressed up with some fabulous heels or cute ankle boots.
4. Dressed-up Distessed: Give your nights out a dose of relaxed style with an effortlessly cool pairing of a denim moto jacket and modern distressed jeans. Pair with sky-high pumps for the full effect.
Discriminating, Decisive, and in love with denim.
Live fully, love fiercely, travel often. That’s the mantra and the mandate of the SOLD DESIGN LAB woman.

SOLD products pass through many meticulous hands before they reach the consumer. They are sculpted and engineered in Los Angeles by artisans who have worked for generations in the denim industry.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.
Today’s street style inspiration is all about denim---and lots of it! The territory of double denim has really come a long way from an unfortunate fashion faux pas only charted by the very brave (or style deficient) to becoming an easy go-to for the stylish set.
When it comes to our beloved denim: the more the merrier!

The A Gold E trademark was first used in the early 1990s. It was the brand name selected for what was the premier Los Angeles based denim brand at the time and sold in stores throughout the United States.
A Gold E has been revived for a new line of denim--a brand that meets the needs of today--high quality denim products at very affordable prices. The line was developed in Los Angeles by a team of leading denim designers and is manufactured exclusive at the brand's own manufacturing facilities. It is "born and bred" exclusively in Los Angeles from design to sewing to the wash process.
A Gold E is a unique combination of soft fabrics, perfect fits, contemporary design, and great value.
