Have you ever wondered how much your jeans actually cost… like when you order a bottle of wine at a restaurant there’s a part of you that says “shit, I’m getting so screwed on this price right now, aren’t I”, but meh, you buy it anyway. You buy the jeans the same way because frankly, you ain’t about to make your own jeans and quality jeans come at a price? Right? Wrong. This is where retail trailblazers like DSTLD come in and blow your mind with their unique approach to denim retail and consumerism. In the case of this LA based jean crafter company, DSTLD offers exquisite premium quality denim (no sweat shops, eco friendly fabric, top notch factories and producers) directly to shoppers (male and female) without the middleman. FYI: Middlemen = retail markup = unnecessary “ouchie”.
I first discovered DSTLD about six months ago and since then have become one of their biggest fans of their product and practices; their pride in being an LA based brand is evident. A few of LA’s most prominent bloggers (I’m going to go ahead and include myself in that generalization) have partnered with the brand and the LA community collectively have watched the line, in such a short amount of time, grow into the successful premium denim retailers they are today.
DSTLD is always coming out with new jeans, they’re completely on-top of trends, and prices for their incredible denim starts at $65. Each price tag comes with a note that informs you how much the item would usually retail for if there were a middleman involved, and really, thank god, because there really is no better high than the feeling you get when you just scored an epic deal. You can get that every time you buy a pair of DSTLD jeans, can you even imagine?
Right now DSTLD has opened up their incredible showroom space and turned it into a pop-up shop, so instead of ordering the jeans online you have the option of trying jeans on in store, which trust me, you might wanna do (I mean, look a this place.) The shop is open 11 am – 6 pm Monday – Friday, but they’ll be open Saturday 12 – 4 pm by appointment only (phone: (888) 246-7163 or via email:firstname.lastname@example.org.).Location: 8899 Beverly Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90048
There are few things more satisfying than shopping affordable premium jeans that also happen to be proudly “made in LA”. From design to production to retail, DSTLD really does it all and they do it all for us. Honestly… I’m just so happy I can buy 3-4 pairs of jeans for the price of what I’d usually pay for 1.
