Local Designer Feature – Grp.E Jeans

The best part of living here in the San Francisco Bay Area is making great relationships with local boutiques. One of my favorite boutique owners, Deb of Simply Smashing introduced me to this new line of denim that she is carrying called, Grp.E Jeans.

I made a bee line to the boutique to check out this line of jeans that not only has a catchy name, but a style that suited my personal taste. Grp.E Jeans was born into the fashion industry in 2010 and has already made a name for itself. Designer, Tommy Pham created these jeans to fit any man or woman’s shape perfectly. The perfect Grp.E touch is inside their jeans with the fun phrase “Everyone is pink inside”.

I personally tried on a few styles but the one that fit me the best and brought out curves that I don’t have (ahem…bum) would be the Jenna jeggings.  This specific style has an amazing stretch fit which makes for a comfortable skinny look.  Unlike most faux denim leggings, the Jenna Jeggings are actual denim and what I particularly like about this style are the pockets in the front and back giving it the true jeans look.  Being that bold colors are the trend for this season, Grp.E came out with two striking colors for the Jenna Jeggings – Blue Tini Wash (a royal blue tone) and Vodka Cranberry (a dark rust tone). I ended up taking home the blue tini wash as I fell for color and thought it would be fun to wear with just about anything.  And speaking of color, the special treatment that these jeggings went through to get their beautiful color gave this style a buttery soft feel.  Seriously, when I’m wearing these pants, I can’t stop touching them

For the men’s style I picked up the Tiger Slim Fit Boot Leg in Scandal Wash (a dark grey).  I personally picked this style because I like the somewhat slim straight leg fit – not too baggy and can be worn dressed up or down.  For guys, the scandal wash wears well all year long and of course paired with the appropriate season shirt, jacket and button down.   The feel of the style is again, soft and comfortable enough to wear all year round.  The Tiger Slim Fit Boot Leg also comes in the Woody Wash, which is a medium blue color.

What’s awesome about Grp.E Jeans is they’re made right here in the good old U.S.A.  The two jeans that are shown here can be purchased online at www.grp-e.com or for you fab locals of the San Francisco Bay Area, you can head over to the South Bay – Downtown Campbell and pick up a pair at Simply Smashing.

Keep your eyes posted on Grp.E and Simply Smashing’s facebook page as a little birdie told me that there will be an upcoming trunk show of their latest collection at this gorgeous boutique.
