How do you find the perfect pair of jeans? Jeans have become an article of clothing that you cannot live without, and is necessary in anyones wardrobes. Denim was originally used as hard labor workwear, but as time passed, it has been transformed into a major statement, an expression of personality, and a fashion fundamental. From classics to low rise and slim-fitting embellished pieces, the jean phenomenom is the newest movement. There is a handful of styles and washes, finding the denim that suits you best has become a task. Metro tapped four jeans experts to help you find the perfect pair and keep you on the latest trends.

Ino Caluza, designer of Viktor/vik

Signature Style: I specialize in custom-fit jeans, jackets and skirts. These made-to-order pieces are measured to your body with an option to customize your jean details, such as color of denim and a selection of threads, leather accents, and rivets. My pieces are very form fitting, and classic but edgy. There’s an infinite choice of fabrc colors, from dark raw denim to colored, from which you could select your desired wash effect.

How much and where to get them: For Viktor it’s Php 4,000- Php 6,000; you can visit the 4f, The Podium in Ortigas Center. And for vik --- it’s php2700—3900 opening at the Ayala’s Trinoma in North Edsa this coming May 2007.
