Known for pioneering the way with the high-waist jean, Grey Ant has quickly ascended the fashion ranks over the last few seasons since their founding in 1998. Now offering a full collection of not only denim, but  also elegantly draped dolman-sleeve sweaters, and slinky dresses, founder Grant Krajecki has established himself far beyond his beginnings traveling the US in his family’s VW van.

Each collection is manufactured in Grant’s homebase of Los Angeles, but luckily, you don’t have to live in the city of angels to snag yourself a pair of Grey Ant jeans. Available at all the big wigs like Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, and Fred Segal, in addition to, Grey Ant has come a long way from his Chicago roots.
