What you are seeing here is Simon Miller without Simon Miller at the helm.
Confusing, right? And even more so because the jeans absolutely ROCK, like rockier impossible!! These jeans ARE Simon Miller. So yours truly went on a research trip (online, LOL) and here is what I found out about this brand:
– “Actually Simon Miller without Simon is pretty rad. It’s run by Dan, who has always been Simon’s right hand. When Simon came to NSF and left Simon Miller, Dan and a partner bought the name to keep it alive and it’s probably doing better than ever. Nothing has been spared, the quality is still there… Simon trained him well.” –
And here is a more – how to call this – technical maybe – explanation from the Simon Miller Press Office:
– “We would like to keep the focus more on the brand itself rather than the people behind the brand. The brand is sold at Barney’s New York and Steven Alan stores.. A major development is, this spring the brand will be launching on MrPorter.com for sale. All denim is made in Los Angeles.” –
And all I can say to this is – go, no, run to your closest Barney’s store, or online, and check out these jeans. They are truly amazing.
