Ron Herman now has an online jean bar for men's and women's. Men shop simply by brand, while women can shop by brand, fit (skinny, straight leg, boot cut, flare, wide leg, trouser-inspired denim, or shorts & capris), rise (low, medium, high), wash (light, medium, dark, distressed, colored denim, black) or trend (skinny jeans, summer whites, sexy shorts, colored denim). The retailer has also launched a Ron Herman Jean Bar blog to go with it. Recent posts tell us that the baggy boyfriend jean is back for women (so, you know, you have to buy a bunch new jeans!), and that though the Current/Elliott collection is not yet online, you can get it by calling the Ron Herman Jean Bar at Fred Segal on Melrose—(323)651-4129—or presumably by going in-store.
