Some may argue that what you like in a tee says a lot about who you are. OK, we may argue this, but hear us out. It’s likely that you and your closest gal pal have different criteria when choosing a T-shirt while also sharing a like-mindedness on some points as well. It’s these nuances in taste that often extend beyond the sartorial and make two people so perfectly complementary. So we decided to explore this idea via three of our favorite duos—two pairs of sisters and one couple—and had them play a little game we call “Tees Tête-à-Tête.” They each answered the same questions and guessed how the other might respond. They discovered some stuff they didn’t even know about the other—and in turn revealed even more to us.
Limited edition, small batch and made in LA, Rivet & Thread jeans are crafted with best-of-the-best denim, giant machines—and a bit of elbow grease.

You can talk about music all you want, but at a certain point, you just want to hear it. On that note, literally, we asked our in-house music expert Lindsey to recommend something we should be listening to right now—in one sentence or less.
On the eve of the launch of our new line of intimates, we consulted our bud Hayley Phelan, who’s written for the New York Times, Fashionista and Racked (to name a few) about why comfortable and covered up is finally having its day.
We first met Elle writer Leah Melby Clinton when she turned us into the living embodiment of the blushing emoji with her piece about our black skinny jeans. Leah’s a true-blue denim devotee (one of us, in other words), so as we got to work on our latest version of our Denim Report (in stores and right here), we wanted to get her take on jeans and why they have such a hold on our collective hearts. We won’t say much more other than…yeah, she gets it.
We love a good recipe. But our favorite kind is less stirring and sautéing, more ripping and repairing. Yep, we’re talking denim distressing recipes, aka how to get that loved and lived-in look you want (and play denim designer at the same time). Below, you’ll find three of our tried-and-true denim distressing formulas, for right-now details like raw hems and artful tears. You’ll need: scissors, a seam ripper, a Dremel rotary tool (not as scary as it sounds, Google it), elbow grease and confidence. You got this.
You asked, our in-house expert and head designer, Joyce, shared her insight. From finding the perfect vintage pair to wearing jeans to a job interview (spoiler alert: it’s possible!), our No. 1 denim crush has all the answers you need.
