So, I haven't seen them yet, but Rogan's diffusion line, or should I say "another line" (Rogan wants to be as disassociated with the line as possible) should have, or should be, hitting your local retailers soon. Apparently, there will only be 3 fits available, and in three washes, for men and women - a worker cut, a basic straightleg, and a slight bootcut - in organic cotton straight outta Ken-tuc-ky. The washes will apparently be a lot different from the Rogan jeans as welol - much less urban brooder (who nonetheless has $200+ to spend on jeans) and much more classic Americana. Sounds intriguing, and in keeping with the re-emerging cleaner is better (see Wrangler 47 by Built by Wendy for another example, and the new Lee collection) trend. I'll stick by my guns: Paper Denim, Levis Premiums (that's where my classic Americana comes in) and A.P.C. Loose fit. But I am intrigued. The prices don't look prohibitive (well under $200, and starting at $160), so I may give it a try. The lines sounds a lot like what Earl should have been. A. Harris mentioned in a P.M. to me "Ernest Sewn" jeans as well. I also have yet to see them. My first aquisition for the fall season will be a (very reasonably priced) chocolate brown brushed twill western styled blazer from Built by Wendy for Wrangler. Should look good over a track jacket or a hoodie with some jeans, a cool belt, and some Adidas Italia or Samoa (or Puma or Nike, or whatever legit sneaker brand you choose.) Simple, not trying too hard, and you can go from breakfast at some random joint to lunch standing up (LA's famous bacon wrapped hotdogs! to a nice dinner (but not at a too trendy restaurant where I might be compelled to strangle some annoying, yappy mutt (the dog, not the owner) and bitchslap her striped shirt and dark suit wearing works-on-Wall-Street sexually confused "boyfriend",) and finally, after all of that, for some drinks and laughs about the bitchslapping at a laid back bar. Sounds like a very nice jacket indeed. Very, um, multifunctional.
