Levi’s Tailor Shop at Nordstrom Men’s Store NYC (AKA Your Jeans’ Ultimate Customization Destination)

There are hundreds of purveyors of denim out there, but only one can call itself Levi’s. The brand’s founder, Levi Strauss, patented blue jeans back in the 1870s for prospectors and settlers—men who needed durable workwear pants with give, thanks to strategically placed rivets. In 1890, his company released the 501®—and, well, the rest is history.

Today, almost all of us have a pair (or 10) of Levi’s hanging in our closet. Some so beat up we can’t leave the house in them—but because of that legendary killer fit, we can’t bear to throw them out. Which is why we’re excited to announce our one-of-a-kind partnership with Levi Strauss & Co. in our new Men’s Store NYC: the Levi’s Tailor Shop. The crafty crew will repair that prized pair in no time. They’ll also alter or customize your other denim darlings, whether they need a new hemline or a custom-order chain-stitched embroidered eagle. (And, yes—even your non-Levi jeans are welcome. Bring in anything denim and they’ll work their magic!)

Embellished Spring Denim Looks That Are Anything but Basic

Truth: we’d wear jeans every day to everything if we could. But sometimes we want to wear denim a little differently. Beyond the skinny, the high waist and the destroyed, there’s a newer category we’re just calling fancy pants. With grommets, sequins, pearls and even denim-on-denim designs, embellished jeans are getting a cool-girl refresh—just in time to wear them (everywhere) this spring.

Here are a handful of ways to try out the trend.

The New Denim: Styles to Wear Now and What to Do with Your Skinnies

If there was one trend that the Fashion Week fold universally embraced this fall (for Spring 2017—yeah, it’s confusing), it was denim. And that’s not as dull as it sounds. Current denim trends include a multitude of styles that open the door to personal interpretation. It’s tempting to say that if you wear any cut with confidence, you’re in vogue. But there are a few ground rules to consider.

Introducing PAIGE Jeans for Men with Paige Adams-Geller: Rock Singer, Fit Expert and Dream-Follower

Launching in sync with our justifiably famous Anniversary Sale (early access ongoing now) is PAIGE jeans for men, the division of the California brand that, especially for men, targets the sweet spot between fashion and comfort.

We jumped on the phone with Paige Adams-Geller, the Paige behind PAIGE, to talk about her brand’s evolution over the years. She has a unique history with Nordstrom—and just a unique history, period, finishing high school at 16 in Alaska, jumping straight into the fast life of NYC modeling, singing in bands in bars. The conversation even got a little existential from a professional standpoint, touching on one difficulty about which we can all relate:

When you’re good at a lot of things, how do you narrow down your options and focus on a career path?
