Denim 101

Posted on October 06 2014

Current Elliot - AW14/15


Launched in 2008 Current Elliot has raised the bar for the denim standard. Born out of a love for vintage denim and its American roots. From the washes to the range of fits and styles, the collection respects the history of denim and its timelessness. Each piece in every collection has an almost pre-loved, nothing too pristine and sharp, which we love.
Below is a simple fit guide to their new season offerings. Look at the shapes below, take note of the measurements (it's not geeky, it gives you an at a glance guide to whether the fit is for you)  then get yourself in store for a trying on session and product advice from the Mercantile staff. We do know what we are talking about (honest).

The Classic

The ankle skinny- This shape hugs every curve and is to be  worn VERY FITTED AND LOW on the waist. The new shorter ankle length, solves the problem of excess material bunching around your boots.
You probably already have this shape in core colours (indigo or black) so try the new washed out Briggs colour way, which looks amazing with pale knitwear come winter.  
Details: in-seam 30", front rise 8.5", back rise 13".


The new Boyfriend

The Fling - This is a slimmer more flattering version of last years boyfriend fit. Still with that unisex vibe, this style is best worn super LOW AND RELAXED.  Add a belt if needed and cuff at the ankle, they will be cropped, (note the in seam length).

Details:in-seam 25", front rise 9.5", back rise 14 1/4


Day to Night

The stiletto - Inspiration comes from an true eighties shape (what we like to call babysitter jeans). Again it's a super skinny that is worn tight to hug your curves and cropped to showcase your heels when you ditch the daytime flats.  If you already have the classic Townie wash, try the bleach out . These are everywhere, and currently being worn on the Mercantile shop floor with this seasons Ba&sh or Baum snake print sweats and tees.

Details in seam 27.5", front rise 8.5", back rise 13".

Bottom half sorted, add a white shirt and one of this seasons hottest shapes, the parka or the bomber. Job done.
