But back in January I caved, and let me tell you, I totally get it now. I wore them every single day for the first two weeks I had them. I'm wearing them right now. I'll probably wear them tomorrow.
If you're curious about I+W but apprehensive about dropping a chunk of your paycheck on denim (or are already a fan), check out the garage sale in front of the store's location at 12th Avenue South and Sweetbriar on Saturday. From 7-11 a.m., they'll have sale jeans — I've been told pairs that retail for $225 and up will be cut to a relatively affordable $85 — plus design samples, denim seconds, and vintage culled from their archives. Note! It's in-store only; no email or phone sales. And it's first come, first serve — no early birds.
And if you want something that makes you feel tough and glamorous in a 1980s Justine Bateman kind of way, go with black Hazel jeans.
