ON THE EDGE: Light or dark, bootcut or skinny, denim trends change at a dizzying pace. But one trend that will never go out of style is Japanese selvedge denim. Made on old-school looms using a continuous thread instead of tiny stitches, selvedge denim has the raw, unwashed, waxy look of jeans from the '70s. And they'll last for eons.
Of the elite style, Edwin jeans ($300) sit at the top. After a two-year hiatus, the European line is back with broken-in, straight leg cuts that look straight out of a magazine. They're relaxed, but tailored and they're sure to see you through even the worst of denim trends (looking at you, acid washed). GET IT: Rue 14, 1803 14th St. N.W.
