Levi’s Vintage Clothing Is Reviving Albert Einstein’s Favorite Leather Jacket

How smart was Albert Einstein? One of the first things he purchased after coming to the United States in 1933 was an unlined brown leather jacket by Levi’s. A colleague at Princeton University once wrote that it “solved [his] coat problem for years.” Einstein wore it so often while enjoying a pipe of tobacco that when Christie’s auction house sold it in July 2016, curators noted that it still smelled like smoke. Levi’s Vintage Clothing bought the jacket, and its designers will release a limited edition of 500 replicas on February 19. Each one comes with a bottle of fragrance by D.S. & Durga that blends the smells of pipe tobacco, papyrus manuscript, and vintage leather. Will wearing it make you think like a genius? That’s relative.

Three Sustainable Clothing Companies That Are (Figuratively) Killing It

The clothing industry in general has, over the years, tended to kinda suck when it comes to its environmental footprint and other societal issues. Obviously working conditions are a biggie, particularly overseas. Thankfully that perception is starting to change in some respects, as brands try to catch up (and cash in) on the whole sustainability thing.

M.I.A Collaborates With Astrid Andersen on Capsule Clothing Range

M.I.A. MERCH: The British singer-songwriter Mathangi Arulpragasam — better known by her stage name M.I.A. — has teamed with the Danish designer Astrid Andersen on a capsule clothing range that launches this week.
The collaboration came about after Arulpragasam requested some spring 2017 garments from Andersen, and the musician asked if they could work together in some way. She lauded Andersen’s merging of “function, sport, simplicity and futurism.”
“M.I.A’s message is strong and pure and her personality is strong-willed and determined. That’s rare to find and that’s what made her so incredible to work with,” said Andersen. “For this particular project, it all happened super fast. We have the same references, so it was natural to create pieces from my spring 2017 collection and use her colors and artwork.”
The designer, who was inspired by artwork from the musician’s latest album, “AIM,” used silhouettes from her spring 2017 show. She revamped them using light technical materials in black, coral and beige.
The collection made its debut at the Astrid Andersen flagship in Denmark to celebrate Copenhagen Fashion Week. The range consists of anoraks, T-shirts and track pants. Prices range from 50 pounds for a T-shirt to 120 pounds for an anorak. It will be

At Work: Attorney Douglas Hand Pushes the Boundaries of Tailored Clothing

Douglas Hand has one rule when it comes to his wardrobe: always dress better than your client. “If they engage me, I’m going to charge them a lot of money. It’s about respect for them. What we do requires a great amount of detail and meticulousness and I don’t think that’s communicated well in casual clothing.”              
So the bar is set pretty high when your clients include Rag & Bone, the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Phillip Lim. 
Hand, a fashion-industry attorney and cofounder of Hand Baldachin & Amburgey LLP, is always impeccably put together, mostly in a suit. In fact, his sartorial choices are so spot-on that the American Bar Association tapped him to write a book entitled, “The Laws of Style for the Professional Gentleman,” which will be published in November.
WWD: Tell me a little bit about your background.
Douglas Hand: I was born in Los Angeles and raised in Laguna Beach, Calif., but really fell in love with New York during my time at NYU law school and business school. I started at a big multinational law firm called Shearman & Sterling with more than 1,000 lawyers. I practiced in their New York office and for a year

What Your Favorite Go-To Clothing Color Says About You Personality

By Christine Schoenwald

I recently read a piece in The Elephant Journal by Alex Myles where she talks about how the color of our clothes reveals a lot about our personality type. It made me consider how dressing can be a form of personal expression and how the clothes we wear send out messages to the world.

You can tell a great deal about a person by the colors they wear.

Color plays a major role in our lives by the way it influences our moods and emotions. You wouldn’t think that a color can make you feel secure or make you feel un-easy, but it can. When you choose to use a color or avoid it, that action can reveal much about your personality.

Even if you aren’t consciously aware of the symbolic meanings of certain colors, your subconscious is. What one color means to you may have a completely different meaning to me.

Here’s a guide to what the color of your clothing may be saying about you (with or without your knowledge):

Black colors: It used to be that black was the color of mourning. You only wore black while you were grieving. Luckily, wearing black is no longer just to respect the dead, and it’s perfectly acceptable to wear it at any time.

Punk, Goth, and clubs kids are known to wear a lot of black, and almost every woman has that perfect black dress that’s flattering to her body in her closet. Black symbolizes extremes — all or nothing — and is a color of strength, power, sophistication, elegance, and authority.
2015-10-13-1444749997-6960655-black.png
Photo: H&M

Blue colors: Blue soothes and cools. When you wear blue, you’re broadcasting creativity, positivity, peace, loyalty, and you’re saying that you’ve decided to live by your own rules, and by your own truth. Because blue wearers think for themselves, they’re smart, have a quick wit, and are independent.
2015-10-13-1444750101-311204-blue.png
Photo: H&M

Brown colors: When you wear brown, you’re representing all things solid and grounded such as the color of the earth. Brown is the color that people associate with someone who’s stable, smart, and dependable (like the UPS driver).
2015-10-13-1444750163-3124889-brown.png
Photo: H&M

Grey shades: One thing we all know is that there are many different variations, shades if you will, of grey. Wearing grey can wash you out, and make you seem indifferent, depressed, and apathetic. It can also seem suppressive and give off the impression of a lack of confidence. There’s a reason the classic color of sweatpants is grey.
2015-10-13-1444750266-3276750-grey.png
Photo: H&M

Silver colors: Wearing metallic colors like silver isn’t just for hookers or socialites any more; metallic clothing comes in everything from cute tops to sophisticated dresses. If you wear metallic, you’re letting the world know that you aren’t shy, but that you’re adventurous, up for anything, and hip.
2015-10-13-1444750340-2709379-silver.png
Photo: Macy’s

Not everybody can wear metallic; it reflects the light, which will make you look older, so either you’re young when you wear silver, or you’re a bad*ss.

Red colors: If you want to stand out and grab the spotlight, wear red. It’s the color of energy and is the symbol of life. An Indian bride wears red instead of white. Wearing red is empowering and can give you confidence. Red is also the color of sensuality, aggression, passion, and boldness.
2015-10-13-1444750403-7162386-red.png
Photo: H&M

Orange colors: Orange is known as the color that makes new possibilities happen. It’s creative, enthusiastic, and is associated with good times, warmth, and ambition. If you wear orange, you like to be the life of the party, and are in a positive, energizing, and engaging mood.
2015-10-13-1444750483-3690520-orange.png
Photo: H&M

Pink colors: Pink is very much associated with femininity, but when a man is comfortable with both the masculine and the feminine side to his personality, he can really rock a pink shirt or jacket. Pink is the unconditional love color and it’s known to sooth out aggression.
2015-10-13-1444750544-1192361-pink.png
Photo: H&M

Purple colors: Prince’s nickname of His Royal Purpleness is kind of redundant as purple is the color of royalty and is a symbol of wealth. If you want to convey that you’re rich — both of possessions and spirituality — then wear purple. Purple shows that you have a rich inner life, are intuitive, artistic, creative, and have great instincts about people.
2015-10-13-1444750619-3539065-purple.png
Photo: H&M

Yellow colors: There’s no mistaking yellow, as it’s logical, happy, cheerful, and optimistic. It has the power to bring out creativity, but is completely overpowering if too much is used (you don’t want to dress head to toe in yellow or you’ll look like Big Bird). Yellow encourages intelligence and inspiration, and is a good color to wear when you need that added boost to finish a work project or ace those exams.
2015-10-13-1444750674-5277481-yellow.png
Photo: H&M

Green colors: Nature and money are green and both things are very important. Green is a calming color and is associated with generosity, healing, and a rejuvenated state of mind. People who wear green are charismatic and care deeply about the feelings of others.
2015-10-13-1444750729-30744-green.png
Photo: H&M

White shades: Wearing white signifies cleansing and new beginnings. When you put on a white shirt or skirt, you feel as if you’re staring the day with a clean slate, and you appear to have a fresh and bright outlook. White is the color of balance, harmony, purity, and courage.
2015-10-13-1444750796-3886151-white.png
Photo: H&M

The color of clothing we wear tells the world and ourselves a little bit about us. We can use those colors to feel better and brighter. Once you know, you’ll have a secret method to feeling good about yourself and your day, even if that wasn’t the way it started out.

Tyga Facing $1.6 Million Lawsuit Over Clothing Line

(AllHipHop News) Tyga’s rough summer continues. The West Coast rapper has had to deal with, low album sales, a transgender sext controversy, and now he is being sued again.

[ALSO READ: Tyga Responds To Rumors He Had A Relationship With A Transgender Porn Star]

According to TMZ, Chuon Guen Lee filed a lawsuit against Tyga. Chuon claims she teamed with Tyga to create the Last Kings clothing line in 2013. The YMCMB artist allegedly agreed to promote the brand and get in stocked in Tilly’s.

According to the suit, Tyga did not hold up his end of the agreement, and he took $ 500,000 worth of apparel. The “Ayo” rhymer then launched another clothing company named Egypt Kings. Chuon is seeking $ 1.6 million and additional damages from Tyga and his Egypt Kings partner.

A representative for Tyga disputes Lee’s accusations, telling TMZ, “These, like other allegations, are completely false. This was a business relationship that went sour and was ended last year. We learned of the complaint via TMZ and are aware that individuals will continue to attempt to cash in on Tyga’s success.”

7 Hacks To Instantly Revive Old Clothing

By: Christopher Discipio

Replacing a pair of go-to jeans that suffer from some spotty distressing, or those sliiightly dirty canvas sneakers which have carried you just about everywhere for the past four years, isn’t as easy as just buying a new item. Your favorite clothes have lived so much of your life — the nostalgia is strong with them. The hacks below will help you greatly extend the lifecycle of timeworn clothing, and most of them can be executed with items you (probably) already have lying around your apartment.

1. Save your jeans with… sandpaper
What you need: 220 grit sandpaper.
What it does: Uniformly distressed old denim.

If you have an old pair of beat up jeans, don’t throw ’em out! It takes years to get that sort of lived-in feel/look, and there is a ton of folks who would pay top dollar to get their hands on a faux pair. Instead, wrap a piece of sandpaper around a deck of cards, notebook, etc. and even out/add to the shading and distressing on other areas of the pants. This works best when done on a flat surface while using ultra-abrasive 220 grit sandpaper.

2. Brighten your canvas sneakers
What you need: Baking soda, white vinegar, and a toothbrush.
What it does: Cleans dirt, smudges, scuffs, etc. from canvas sneakers.

Before doing anything, remove the shoelaces and let the shoes soak in lukewarm water. Once that’s done, mix one tablespoon of hot water, one tablespoon of white vinegar, and one tablespoon of baking soda until it reaches a paste-like consistency (if you need more, just up the measurements). Using a toothbrush, work the paste into the canvas and rubber in circular motions. Then, under lukewarm water, rinse the shoes thoroughly. Repeat if there a few particularly pesky stains.

3. Shave your sweater
What you need: A disposable razor.
What it does: Removes pills from sweaters, jackets, blankets, and just about everything else.

Over time, knitwear fibers begin to push out from the surface of the cloth, and abrasion causes the fibers to develop into small, spherical bundles on the surface of the garment. To remove these balls of fuzz, lay the cloth you’re de-pilling on a flat surface and hold it tightly with one hand. With a new razor, use short, quick strokes to remove all the fuzz. You don’t want to press too hard since it is possible to cut the fabric with a sharp blade. This’ll work on your chunkiest of winter sweaters and/or those light knits you break out for a warm weather night.

4. Turn a pair of old pants into shorts (without using a needle and thread)
What you need: Scissors, 1″ of fusible webbing tape (can be found at any fabric or crafts store or online), an iron, and a piece of chalk/pencil.
What it does: Turns a pair of denim, chinos, or trousers into shorts without having to sew anything.

1. If you have a pair of shorts that fit you, use those as your guide, adding two extra inches of fabric to the length. Mark the area with a piece of chalk/pencil.

If you do not have a pair of shorts readily available, put the pants on and determine where you want the shorts to end (ideally, they should be two or three inches above your knee). Add an extra two inches of fabric to your desired length and mark the spot.

2. Fold the pants in half lengthwise on a flat surface and, using a ruler and the same chalk/pencil, extend the line from the mark you made in the first step all the way across. Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut through both pant legs. Use the leg opening seam from the bottom half of the pants as a guide to make sure your cut is straight. Match ’em up, and make whatever slight alterations are needed.

3. Decide if you want them cuffed or not. If you do, fold the cuff up and attach them to the pants with the fusible webbing tape. Then use an iron to seal the cuff down. Rather not have a cuff? Repeat the same process but, instead of folding the extra fabric up, fold and tuck it inside the shorts. Proceed to wear shorts stylishly.

Why I Wear YOGASMOGA Clothing When I Teach Yoga

“What do you think of Western Civilization?” asked a journalist in an apocryphal exchange with Gandhi.
I think it would be a good idea,” Gandhi replied.

The United States of America was built on slavery and exploitation of workers and if the statistics in John Oliver’s amazing exposé on cheap fashion are accurate, then we can all be proud that we’re not quitters.

Oliver claims that the chairman of H&M is the 28th richest person in the world and the co-founder of Zara is the 4th richest person in the world, primarily due to the fact that only 2% of the clothing we wear in this country is produced in the United States and the rest is produced around the world in sweatshops and sometimes by children.

The founder of Lululemon famously claimed that outsourcing production of his yoga clothing to Asia and employing children was a good way of spreading wealth to the less fortunate. That’s almost like saying slavery was a good thing because there were just too many people living in Africa and they would have died of starvation if we had not brought them to the new world.

As Thomas Piketty reports in “Capital in the 21st Century,” income inequality will continue to grow because as billionaire Nick Hanauer bravely states in his TEDTalk, wealthy people like him don’t create jobs; hiring more people (particularly in America which has bizarre concepts such as “minimum wage”) is a last resort for corporations that are more concerned with enlarging profits than with silly ideas such as fairness and human rights.

Look, let’s be honest: we are all the beneficiaries of virulent capitalism — from the foreign cars we drive to the disposable clothing we wear to the plethora of food choices we have to the iPhones in our pockets. And I’m not going to be nominated for sainthood anytime soon (I’m sitting here typing this article on my Apple computer and I’m wearing GAP outlet store sweatpants) but there is another paradigm… another way of conducting business that doesn’t exploit others… that doesn’t see trade as a zero-sum game… that pays people honestly for their time, talent and effort.

A mile from my home is a YOGASMOGA store and being somewhat of a traditionalist when it comes to yoga I was initially put off by the name. Then I learned that it was founded by an Indian brother and sister so I decided to check it out.

The first thing the retail experience associate Morgan told me about it was that all of the clothing was made in America and that the dying process was eco-friendly. Wow! Then I found out that YOGASMOGA stays true to the ethos of yoga from design to delivery; every step of the process maintains sustainable practices. Their high-quality proprietary fabrics are produced in California not too far from their Brentwood store and each piece is colored with formaldehyde-free dyes and monitored by the most stringent EPA standards so that the colors don’t fade or bleed or expose our bodies or the environment to toxins. 

YOGASMOGA’s idea of sustainability also means that every piece is cut and manufactured domestically, which means less gas used on transporting goods.

I spoke with marketing director Faith Shea and she told me that, “It also means camaraderie and appreciation for every member of the YOGASMOGA team. Everyone in the company knows every member of the production process — from the creative people to production people to the retail floor salespeople. It’s not surprising to see members of corporate working side-by-side with factory employees, or fulfillment center managers grabbing coffee with the e-commerce team.” 

In addition, Faith told me that, “Understanding that textile production is typically done in some of the world’s most impoverished communities, YOGASMOGA recognizes its obligation to give back which is why we created the Namaskár Foundation, which coordinates the manufacture and sales of hand woven bracelets made in remote villages of the Himalayas.  Each bracelet is sold by YOGASMOGA for $ 10 and the net proceeds of all sales benefit healthcare, education and micro-lending initiatives for Himalayan women and their families.” 

As yoga teachers we have to be the change we want to see in the world which means making ethical purchases and insuring that everyone gets paid fairly for their time, talent, and effort. And that’s why I am going to wear YOGASMOGA clothing when I teach yoga. Not only because the clothing feels great on my body and is well-made but because every human being deserves to be treated with dignity; we have to stop corporate greed from exacerbating the inequalities in our civilization, we have to re-learn how to conduct business ethically like they are doing at YOGASMOGA.

Yes, Mister Gandhi, Western civilization would be a good idea.

Parents Combat Gender Stereotypes With Futuristic Kids’ Clothing Line

Designer Tiffe Fermaint and her fiancé Keith Walker hope that their kids’ clothing line will provide a cool alternative to the countless children’s brands that promote harmful gender stereotypes.

Inspired by the birth of their daughter Violet, Fermaint and Walker launched Baby Teith in 2013. Fermaint told The Huffington Post that she searched in vain for clothing that was gender neutral and eco-friendly, made from organic cotton. “I was tired of seeing nothing but pink body suits with the word ‘princess’ blinged out in rhinestones in the girls’ department,” she said, adding, “There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just not my style.”

Seeking options for her daughter, the mom used her experience in fashion as a designer and visual stylist to create her own clothing line. Baby Teith was a hit with Fermaint’s friends, and after many requests, she opened an Etsy shop to sell her designs to other parents. The designer and her fiancé eventually both quit their jobs to focus on Baby Teith full time.

The mom describes her children’s clothes as “fun, comfortable and memorable” and says she hopes her vivid, futuristic prints inspire their little wearers’ imaginations. From moon and nebula images to a design inspired by VHS tape glitches, each print is truly unique.

“Our newest collection for fall available through our Kickstarter Project is called Medieval Time Traveler,” Fermaints said. “It is inspired by the courage of Joan of Arc is meant to empower children.”

Last month, Fermaint and Walker launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the brand’s production through an ethical manufacturer and bring Baby Teith to a major trade show.

The couple hopes the message behind their designs reaches the mainstream kids’ clothing world. “We genuinely believe that in this day and age, gender stereotypes are outdated,” Fermaint told HuffPost. “We want our daughter to form her own opinions on the subject and feel that she can dress any way she wishes.”

“Instilling this notion before she forms opinions like ‘Pink is just for girls and I have to wear pink because I am a girl’ can be an important step,” she continued. “We are extremely happy to see more clothing in the market that are gender neutral. The market is changing and we hope that bigger brands take notice. This is a huge step for gender equality.”

The Baby Teith Kickstarter campaign ends on June 6, and so far, they’ve raised almost 70 percent of their $ 10,000 goal. The brand also won the Phoenix New Times newspaper’s 2014 award for “Best Kids Clothing.”

As for their very first customer, Fermaint says her daughter really enjoys Baby Teith clothes. “She may not be able to articulate how much she loves the garments yet, but we like to assume they are her favorite.”

Keep scrolling and follow Baby Teith on Facebook and Instagram for a sample of what the brand has to offer.

Clothing Company Invents Genius White T-Shirt That Won’t Stain

Wearing white is a sign of confidence. Knowing that you’ll have to battle street grime, dirty seats and the prospect of food and drink stains that day is proof of your courage, at least when it comes to your clothes.

Now, clothing company Elizabeth & Clarke is trying to totally eliminate the fear of wearing white by making “The Unstainable White Shirt.” The company’s Kickstarter campaign went live April 21, and has already raised roughly four times its monetary goal of $ 30,000 to put the shirts into production.

Watch the shirt defeat coffee, mustard, ketchup and more below:

According to the company, the shirt, which comes in blouse and T-shirt styles, works by using nanotechnology that fights off water-based or oil-based liquid spills, and even sweat! Elizabeth & Clarke says the washable fabric uses a proprietary garment finish that repels the liquids the same way “a flower repels morning dew.”

The shirts are currently being sold in four styles — the “Liz Lemon” T-shirt, the crepe de chine button-down “The White,” a sleeveless version called “The Arden,” and “The Parker,” a placket-front blouse. Tees will retail for $ 25 and blouses will cost $ 40, with orders slated to ship out in September 2015.

Until then, ladies, keep an eye on your coffee!

Clothing Labels List Sweatshop Atrocities So Buyers Will Shop More Consciously

The writing on clothing labels is generally kept pretty pithy, because unless customers are shopping in Milan, they’re likely not all that interested in the details of their garments’ origins.

But, in reality, just as important as fit and comfort is where clothes are made and how the people who produced them were treated in the process. That’s why advocacy group Canadian Fair Trade Network recently unveiled a powerful campaign that outlines on actual clothing labels the types of horrors sweatshop workers in Cambodia, Sierra Leone and Bangladesh face.

The stories represent what transpires at three levels of production — harvesting, textile production and garment manufacturing.

A bright yellow sweater, for example, describes the devastating daily schedule of a child laborer in Cambodia.

labor

The label reads: 100% cotton. Made in Cambodia by Behnly, 9 years old. He gets up at 5:00 am every morning to make his way to the garment factory where he works. It will be dark when he arrives and dark when he leaves. He dresses lightly because the temperature in the room he works reaches 30 degrees. The dust in the room fills his nose and mouth. He will make less than a dollar, for a day spent slowly suffocating. A mask would cost the company ten cents.

The label doesn’t tell the whole story.

In 2012, Cambodia shipped more than $ 4 billion worth of products to the United States and Europe, making the garment industry its most lucrative export. Yet the industry’s workers typically toil six days a week and make just $ 100 a month, barely enough to cover their basic expenses, according to advocacy group Clean Clothes.

Some major European companies, like H&M, have heeded to mounting pressure and recently pledged to improve meager wages for factory workers.

H&M committed to developing pay structures that would enable a fair living wage in 750 factories it works with, including those in Cambodia and Bangladesh, by 2018.

Often, however, it isn’t just the meager wages that concern workers most. It’s the fact that they face unsafe working conditions that could cost them their lives, as the label on a sleek suit jacket demonstrates.

cambodia

The label reads: 100% cotton. Made in Bangladesh by Joya who left school at the age of 12 to help support her two brothers and newly widowed mother. Her father was killed when a fire ripped through the cotton factory where he works. She now works in the building across the street from the burned down factory. A constant reminder of the risk she takes every day.

The label doesn’t tell the whole story.

The hazardous conditions workers in Bangladesh are subjected to made international headlines in 2012 when 112 laborers died in the country’s worst-ever factory fire. Walmart, Disney and Sears were among the U.S. retailers who imported clothing from the devastated factory.

Perhaps what was most distressing though, was that Walmart and Gap rejected a proposed plan a year earlier that would’ve required them to pay their suppliers more in order to improve safety conditions, Bloomberg reported.

In 2013, a some major U.S. and European retailers, including H&M, signed an international five-year accord that demanded independent safety inspections of factories in Bangladesh and that participating companies pay up to $ 500,000 a year for safety improvements. Walmart declined to get involved and said it was forming its own safety plan.

To help customers support companies that partake in fair trade practices, the Canadian Fair Trade Network offers customers an extensive shopping guide. It lists Canadian companies that partake in fair-trade practices and also enables shoppers to search by product to find manufacturers they can trust. To urge companies to improve wages for factory workers in Cambodia, Clean Clothes launched a petition to urge H&M to do even more to protect workers there.

Find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved here.
