But let’s not talk about the boyfriend jeans’ origins. Instead, let’s talk about this new trend that already has names like Katie H…

Finding The Best-Fitting Jeans

Finding The Best-Fitting Jeans

To find a pair of jeans that best suits you, basically means knowing and applying two things: one, knowing your body type (your shape and size); and two, understanding a pair of jeans’ cut in relation to your body type.

Citizens Of Humanity: Designer Denim

When I first heard about Citizens of Humanity, I thought it was a non-governmental organization working for people empowerment, upholding equality and basic human rights, etc. I was surprised to know that the name was actually a brand name for designer jeans. That was way back in 2004, and now with Citizens of Humanity or COH being one of the leaders in denims and jeans apparel, I know better.  Based in Huntington Park, California, the Citizens of Humanity was founded by the makers of “7 For All…
