Though the brand name may come off as obnoxious to some, Rich & Skinny does a hell of a job with putting out great jeans. Ironically, you don’t have to be rich to buy a pair and you don’t have to be skinny to have them fit and look good but they jeans will make you feel that way.
Created by two designers who know the game, Michael Glasser (designer of 7 for All Mankind) and Joie Rucker (founding name of label “Joie“), the dynamic duo bring together their design sensibilities and understanding of the denim industry to produce denim that customers want.
Rich & Skinny got its start late 2006 and steadily gained momentum after appearing on celebs such as Jessica Alba and Rihanna. The denim styles are varied, giving a little something for everyone, and built for comfort due to the use of unique European denim that blends cotton with Lycra Spandex. For this season, Rich & Skinny’s signature “Sleek” jeans come in a destroyed camel-color finish while the “Super Skinny” get a subtle acid wash treatment in light and dark blues. Also new for the Spring 2010 collection are cute cut-offs with interesting cuff detail.
The site is down for now but you can get a jist of the styles at online retailers like Revolve Clothing.
