Current/Elliot's Beat-Up Americana Denim—Now for Guys!

current-elliot-mens-spring-09-1
It's the simple things that are hard to get right. Longtime celeb and editorial stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott have hit it right on the mark with their relaxed, undeniably American line of men's causuals, Current/Elliot. Take a look—those cuffed Tom Sawyer pants would be preppy if they we're so slouchy. The engineers' coat and denim jackets would be too slouchy if they weren't so well constructed. And those slim cut jeans, if they we're so right on the moment, you might think they'd been at the bottom of your closet for a decade (in a good way). It's a delicate balancing act, even if the smartly rough-and-tumble gear Meritt Elliot have hewn together are about as far from delicate as you can get.
