#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Kick Boot

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Kate from O My Heart styled our Kick Boot Jean. Vintage inspired. Flawlessly refined. A fresh, modern take on the original bootcut jean.

What inspired Kate’s look:
It’s been a long time since I’ve worn anything but skinny jeans so this Kick Boot Jean really took me out of my element! I decided to keep pushing my comfort zone and ended up with this edgy-meets-boho look!

Music Monday: AEO Up Next: Vance Joy

AEO_UP_NEXT__HEADER_800X400

For this week’s installment of AEO Up Next, we present Aussie indie folkster, Vance Joy. He’s been super busy on tour and handling the new-found stardom that comes with a chart-topping hit. That hit is called “Riptide” and it’s just about the most simultaneously lighthearted and painful love song out right now. Check it out below and read on to get to know the man behind Vance Joy in the Q & A after the jump.

AEO:  People usually want to know what any artist’s influences are. But we’re going to make you narrow that down to the one album that truly affected your path in music.

Vance Joy:  Elliott Smith: Either/Or

AEO:  Where was your first show and what was it like?

VJ:  It was at the Queenscliff Music Festival when I was 10. I was with my family. My little sister and I sat near the edge of the stage as Jimmy Little played his set. We had had his album “Messenger” in the family car for a while before the show, so we knew the tunes. I have a few strong memories of that night.

AEO:  Anyone who’s seen any movies about rock bands knows that the tour bus can be like an extension of a wild backstage party or a place for band antics. Tell us the craziest or funniest tour bus story to date.

VJ:  Our tour bus isn’t crazy at all it is pretty calm. On the long road trips you need to just zone out and read or watch some t.v show. We have had some late night music dancing sessions which have been memorable. I get so pumped up listening to “Turn Down For What.” And also Sheryl Crow “If It Makes You Happy”, but mainly “Turn Down For What”. We were driving around Maine with turn down for what pumping and getting so fired up.

AEO:  What was the last song you played on your phone?

VJ:  “Mad World” cat Stevens

AEO:  What’s your favorite thing to do when you have a creative block that you need to work through?

VJ:  Go run errands and make them the focus. Make coffee dates and run around like a headless chook.

AEO:  Top 5 albums that anyone who’s reading this should go out and buy right now:

VJ:  Cat Stevens – Tea for the TillermanColdplay – Rush of Blood to the HeadElliott Smith – Figure 8Father John Misty – Fear funKillers – Day and Age

Now that you’ve gotten to know about Vance, channel his look with #AEOStyle.

#AEOSTYLE Challenge Denim Edition: Loose

We believe in one-of-a-kind fits, not one size fits all. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody.

Saul from Trend Styled recently wore our Loose Jean for a laid-back summer weekend look. It’s our newest jean — loose, relaxed and ready for anything.

What inspired Saul’s look:
Weekends are all about relaxing… and there’s nothing more laid back than a baggy pair of denim and a t-shirt. I love a good light wash on my denim during the summer and you can never go wrong with a denim shirt like this AEO Denim Western shirt (usually found wrapped around my waist) in my summer shirting arsenal.
