LA brand James Jeans has launched a couture line comprised of four styles of denim. According to the release, the jeans have "special features that contour the waist, suck in the thighs, sculpt the butt, and minimize the hips." All that sculpting will cost you anywhere from $194 to $207. City-dwellers will find them at American Rag; everyone else can shop them online at jamesjeans.us. [Racked Inbox]
