Big News: J. Crew is going to collaborate with Nashville’s own Imogene + Willie! Two styles of denim for men will be produced, as well as two bags. This is on the heels of J. Crew’s most recent denim collaboration with Warehouse Denim. It’s all very exciting, even more so for denim fanatics. I’m sorry to not have more information. I’ll be honest, I’m not going to pay the subscription fee for WWD.com. If anyone has more information, and would like to share, feel free to comment. Everyone, especially me, will be greatly appreciative!
This is going to be perfect!
UPDATE: From the Imogene + Willie blog…
J. Crew will carry a slim straight-leg model, which is “based on a jean from the Forties,” he said, in either a dark rinse with mild abrasion for $375 or a light wash with more abrasion for $425. There will be a slimmed-down version of a vintage U.S. Mail bag for $650 and a leather tote for $800. Hangtags have been printed from old letter presses, and the sizes will be individually hand-stamped, according to Matt Eddmenson. There will also be a vintage T-shirt and sweatshirt for women.
According to their blog, Matt and Carrie Eddmenson reached out to J. Crew, and Mickey Drexler very quickly jumped on board. Feel free to visit their blog and get the whole low down. Like I said, this is just very exciting. I love seeing good things happen to great people.
