See those fabulous high waisted jeans in our [Summer] In The City photo shoot? Well, feast your eyes on Australia's newest denim incarnation, Denim & Thread. The label, borne in 2006, sticks with a classic 25 weight gauge thread to create a fit that rivals your mom's sick 70's denim. These jeans are not flimsy, they don't rip by the inseam, they're solid, sturdy jeans like the good 'ol days. Creating a 'classic' fit, however, doesn't mean the label's manifesto is stuck in the past. Denim & Thread is mostly created from organic cotton by way of sustainable farming and their distressed denim is hand sanded so that distressed doesn't eventually equal unwearable. The jeans featured in our editorial are part of the Fall collection but check out the brand's Spring 08 offerings, with everything from high rise to acid washed. Denim & Thread is run by designer Ron London and denim technician Alex Lambousis. In New York, they are sold at OAK boutique.
