Good Jeans

Posted August 12, 2008
Everyone's talking about the new Current/Elliot Boyfriend jeans. You know the story: Stylists meet, make jeans, get Vogue coverage, and sell out of Barneys. But if you’ve heard that one before and still aren’t too keen on the $200-plus price tag, then look no further than your neighborhood J.Crew catalog for a pair of Distressed Vintage Slim jeans. Strategically ripped in all the same places, easily rollable to that just-so mid-calf length, and roomy enough to replicate the boyfriend style (go up a size for serious slouch). And they'll look better on you than on Katie Holmes.
