There’s no time like summertime to wear fresh, crisp whites, and one of our favorite made-in-NYC brands Public School has the perfect pair of jeans to keep you styling all weekend long.
If you’re not familiar with Public School, it’s time to get smart. Launched in 2008 by designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, Public School is the downtown cool brand that feels like a second skin to its loyal wearers. Dedicated to producing only the best quality garments, Chow and Osborne source their fabrics from the finest mills in Japan and Italy but produce everything in NYC, as it’s “truly home and crucial to their unique point of view.”
We’ve loved Public School for years, but 2013 brings even more of a reason to celebrate the brand. The duo took home the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Menswear last month and were just selected as finalists for the 2013 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. If you’re not a fluent fashionisto, all we have to say is these honors are a big f*cking deal.
Not to mention, Public School rolled out a denim line this year, which we are thrilled to share with you now. Sure, much of American denim is made on the West Coast, but Chow and Osbourne are here to change that. Just like the RTW line, their denim is 100% made in NYC’s Garment District. And because there is no time like the present to be donning fresh, white threads, you have to get your hands on the PS 13 in All Natural White. Built with a skinny fit, style this pair with your favorite madras shirt, new sneakers or navy blazer depending where this weekend takes you. Trust us: at $168, they are a steal. And if a super slim leg isn’t your thing, they have a fit for everyone.
