We seriously couldn't live without our dark-washed skinnies by this chief of chaps (there may or may not be four different pants of the identical model
neatly folded mashed in our drawers). There's really no fit or wash quite like them. And, while it may seem paradoxical that a man (CEO Jeff Rudes to be exact) understands the curvature of the ankles to the calves to the middle-half of women so well, but with over 30 years under his belt, and formerly partnering with other icons like AG and Ron Herman, it measures up. What began in '04 as that dark-blue sensation has since fully blossomed into full-on catwalk collab phenomenons with Hussein Chalayan, Peter Pilotto, Proenza Schouler, Richard Nicoll, Meadham Kirchoff, Erdem, and Christopher Kane. Talk about having a leg-up on the entire industry!
