For you guys that have been seething with jealousy because the pleasure of wearing a pair of Habitual Jeans with that awesomely handcrafted cross on the back has been the sole domain of women, your time has come. Habitual has just announced that they will be launching a men's line for Spring/Summer 2012.

The line will be authentically handcrafted in the brand's Los Angeles factory using very little machinery which probably means that no two pairs will be exactly alike. Especially when it comes to finishing.

Expect to see fits like the slim-straight, straight, skinny and relaxed bootcuts in a range of indigo washes, grays and blacks.

According to the Habitual blog, The Habit, the mens' line will have a European aesthetic with more of a city look than vintage look. The blog only has close-up and detail shots, so I'm curious to see how that will be interpreted.

The line will hit stores January 2012 and will retail for $175 to $195 for basic washes, but can go upwards of $325. Also available will be a line of trousers and jackets.
