Stacey Todd Denim

Best Jean Boutiques, March 2008
Two-and-a-half-year-old STACEY TODD DENIM is the Valley’s premier purveyor of dungarees, selling about three dozen brands, from trusty American (Wrangler) to trendy European (Superfine, Acne), as well as local labels that specialize in classic cuts with a stylish edge (Chip & Pepper, Genetic Denim, and Goldsign, Goldschmied’s latest line). The casual atmosphere—dogs are welcome—matches the minimally adorned offerings, including Ksubi’s $265 pegged “Lean Bean” and a $322 Sling & Stones pair made of organic fair-trade cotton. Most are designed to flatter a variety of body types and feature pocket details meant to deflect attention from the rear.
