American Apparel’s Men’s Jeans: Vintage Done Right Or Mom Jeans For Dudes?

Back in April, we chatted exclusively with George Atlan, who teamed up with American Apparel to produce a denim line for the ladies that eschewed traditional cuts in favor of high-waisted styles. Now, we've got the first look at the brand's first jeans for men, Men's Jeans: Regular 100, that, like their female counterparts before them, are anything but generic. "We've come up with a truly authentic pair of jeans—something the market has lacked for a long time," says Atlan, and indeed, in this weekend's fall shopping excursion, we didn't see a lot of guy's pants that had quite the same fit—high waisted and tapered, with the possibility of some package TMI (not always a bad thing). Available in sizes 27-36, a limited-edition run of 1,000 pairs with a special hangtang will be available at American Apparel stores nationwide, with additional jeans available online at There's something throwback and classic about these dark blues, but the fit won't be for everyone. What say you? Vintage done right or mom jeans for the fellas?
