This fall marks the 10th anniversary of Agave. And being that this is an Olympic year, Agave drew its inspirations fit to celebrate in an “Olympic” way! Their collection is full of beautiful modern, yet classic, jeans. Raw selvage is predominant and they have added a coated denim – for fashionistas, and a special new raw plant indigo selvage 12oz – for denim heads.
What I like most about these jeans is that I so totally feel a woman’s influence here. Of course, Jeff Shafer’s wife and soulmate, Lauren Shafer, has co-created here with Jeff and it couldn’t have been done any better! How do I perceive this? Well, as opposed to most men’s denim brands, there is nothing baggy or oversized here. All the jeans are either skinny or straight and I am convinced that Lauren has had her way with this, right?!?
Note: I stand corrected! Here is what Lauren Shafer told me after reading this post:
“This is incorrect. Jeff is the reason the mens line looks the way it does. I have nothing to do with it. He is the one with vision out of the two of us. He has been going to Europe and trying to push skinnier pants for a couple seasons. The only influence I have on him is to not wear baggy T shirts when we go on a date! Wish I had more-LOL”
