Given last night’s late night festivities at the opening of Supper Club’s New York chapter, we needed something to take the edge off our early morning. Poking around at some of our favorite denim retailers, we noticed the prevalence of a trend we participate in more frequently than we should admit: unisex jeans. With girls stealing boys’ jeans and boys stealing girls’ jeans, labels like April 77 (above,) Cheap Monday, Tripp, and Levi’s have finally gotten it right–all for one, one for all!
Yes, these jeans are usually very slim fitting, but are cut in the perfect middle-ground proportions to keep both sexes happy campers. Our everyday jeans are from Tripp. We’ve stocked up on their Jimmy Jean in just about every color and pattern thanks to legendary Jimmy Webb of Trash & Vaudeville for whom the jeans are named.
We’re also big fans of Levi’s recently launched unisex collection, especially the bondage-influenced styles we saw at the Damien Hirst show in September.
If you’re looking for something a little more European, check out April 77 and Cheap Monday. Of course, all the great style icons, such as Charlotte Gainsbourg, have been rockin’ Dior Homme’s jeans for quite some time. Though technically not unisex, there’s no arguing that almost as many women wear the collection as men.
