What: Aristocratic Windsor Jeans ($198)
Why: Not all of us are lucky enough to be born into the elite class, but every American has the right to dress the part. And that's exactly what industry newcomer Aristocrat Denim is here to help you do. The label, which came onto the scene in 2007, names each of its designs after places and people that bespeak aristocracy: "Sutton" (for Sutton Place), Antoinette (for obvious reasons), and, most recently, "Windsor," the style that's making waves back here in the U.S. This model has become a serious best-seller at both high-end boutiques (like Scoop and Ron Herman) and staple suppliers like Barneys and Nordstrom. Let's see what all the hype's about:
These Windsor Bootcut jeans ($198) have a higher waist to help prevent the dreaded muffin top, and the flare at the bottom is sufficient to avoid the peg-leg look, but very modern in its subtlety.
And check out the cute bum on these Windsor Straight Leg Jeans in Bishop ($198). Here's a close-up on those big, flattering back pockets:
That inverted V is Windsor's signature stitching. Take a good look–we think you'll be seeing a lot more of these gems on your city's streets.
