The Old New Trend: Vintage

I read that the inspiration for the current flannel craze originated from thrifty hipsters getting their shirts for cheap from second hand stores. Now all the lines are going after that has been and washed up look. Even though the "vintage and distressed" look has always been in vogue, you will see a lot more in the upcoming seasons, especially since the recession has put a lot more emphasis back on used and worn-out clothing.

The whole hipster scene has dramatically influenced fashion. This style is about being chill and looking cheap, but it is completely contradicted by the cost of some of these "vintage" shirts. It isn't cheap to look "cheap." The amount of effort and the process that goes into producing a shirt that looks old is actually one that ends up costing a lot.

Click here to check out my listing of the top 7 trends of the coming season.

Weekly Style Redux: Outfits for less than $150!

In August, we went all out and suggested splurging on a leather jacket from Mackage. But with Christmas coming around the corner, you're sure to have spent that saved up money on gifts for your loved ones. No need to fret, because the JUZD team is offering fashionable buys to style your favorite Fico's Crest shirt but all for a total of under $150.

Get this look online:

1. It's always hard to shop for jackets, but let's give our best. If you shop at outlets, you can sometimes score a great deal. Check out this men's buffalo leather jacket available for only $58.88 USD at Leather Coats etc., as opposed to its retail price of $180.

2. Try on this great pair of Levi's 505 jeans, which are a great wash and sit well on the body with its straight leg cut. Available at Langston's for $29.97 USD.

3. Being a great steal at just under $18, we think that you should be sporting the Heritage1981 fedora hat that we suggested last time for the Fico's Crest shirt.

And there you have it! We managed to include for you a hot deal on a jacket and have everything total to just under $120 (not including taxes). Stay tuned for more low-cost, yet just as stylish, outfits!

The Bay Olympic Collection is on point!

I finally checked out the Bay on Queen Street yesterday. Haven't been in this place for maybe a decade? Wow, that's a long time!

I remember when I was a kid and crossing that Eaton Centre tunnel to enter the bay and go through all the cool stuff I can't afford. I remember going there 5-6 times just to buy a pair of Hush Puppies.

Always I was finally there again, was told they are trying to move upscale. They picked up some high end brands like Desigual, great detailing! Other stuff was pretty much expected.

What caught my attention was the Canadian Olympic collection from HBC. From the commercials I thought the design of the shirts were kind of neat but thought that the collection wouldn't be good, you know, it is the Bay after all. Their reputation for picking up good brands aren't that good. And their reputation for design is non existent. But have to say I really like the collection, well half of it anyways. I was surprised that they did all these pieces without "Canada" or "Olympics" splattered all over it. I mean I'm sure they paid quite a penny for the rights. But they have these nice parkas with just a tiny patch on it.
As well they got these nice classic knitted sweaters as well as flannel shirts. From the look of it it doesn't have anything to do with the Olympics then you realize that these are classic Candiana designs. Kudos to them.

But of course they have to have these stupid tees with Canuk all over it. Unlike the other items I will not be linking to it because you shouldn't be buying it!!
Want more Canada stuff in time for the Olympics? Check out the Canada Basketball shirts I designed. Proceeds goes to our athletes.

Three Lines Worth Checking Out!

Hi, my name is Luisa and I’m working with Jing and JUZD as part of my co-op program at school. This opportunity has broadened my knowledge of fashion and the fashion world. I was just looking around for other cool brands; I came across 3 interesting companies. The first one is MERC London; you may know them for their trademark Target. MERC London obviously came out of London, England and their style has been recognized for over 40 years. I like MERC because of their simple yet lasting designs; cool colours and tailored approach. I think MERC is definitely a label to look out for in Toronto.

Another brand I think is really cool is Jack and Jones from Sweden. Their super hip denim wear perfectly complements their awesome t-shirts and vice versa. All the clothes look really comfortable but not comfortable like lounging clothes. These shirts and pants are great for going out; the shirts bright and eye-catching and the pants are fitted and have awesome washes. I wouldn’t mind showing up at a party looking like this!

I’m glad I found this brand from London as well. Firetrap has a really chic look to it, everything is tailored with an edge to it. Firetrap belongs to a whole line of underground labels catering to the unconventional youth of London. Their super edgy designs caught my eye and their collections are dark. These jackets are really cool and I’d be pretty happy if I found some of their items in Toronto.

Weekly Style: Boho Meets Punk

Fusing together the looks boho headscarves and punk boots, you can definitely be unique on the street. Don't take the look too far though otherwise people will think of you as a fashion blunder, as opposed to genius. Stick to plain shirts and perhaps a pair of shimmery leggings/tights to spice things up. Our shirt suggestion? JUZD, of course. With a simple grey v-neck, you are sure to keep the look cool.

Get this look online:

1. Yes, the shirts are in! Get your grey bamboo longsleeve at the JUZD shop now for $54.05 CDN

While we couldn't find a scarf similar to the one in the picture, silk/polyester scarves also work great to get the bohemian effect. Try on this scarf from Careta Imports, which retails for $65 CDN

3. Shimmery and patterned leggings/tights are in right now. So grab your pair of shimmer opaque tights from American Apparel for only $15 USD!

4. Turn up the attitude with a pair of MIA Dusty boots, which retails for $73 USD at Zappos.

Not Just a Sex Icon, London also has Jolie's raw attitude in her next Indie Feature Film "Jane Doe"

London's next project will be sure to put her on the map and showcase her acting abilities. The title character, Jane Doe, played by Veronika London (Showtime's "Body Language," HBO series "Lingerie" and our lovely product model!) is a young prostitute and heroin addict found by paramedics laying on the street in a pool of blood. She is the victim of a violent altercation which leaves her with a severe head injury. Stricken by amnesia and struggling with her heroin addiction, she is on a quest to discover her identity, but most importantly who did this to her and why. Along her quest she comes along several characters from her past and the clues to the answers she seeks slowly come to light, revealing many horrible truths. With this information, feelings of curiosity quickly turn to a thirst for retribution."Jane Doe" goes into production in January 2010 with principal photography lasting 30 days. The majority of the film will be shot in Toronto, Canada with additional scenes to be shot in Los Angeles.

For more information on Veronika's new movie, check out www.janedoemovie.com.

And while you are waiting for this movie to be finished and released, be sure to check out the JUZD Shop as we will soon be selling our fall/winter collection, for which Veronika modeled.

Canada Basketball launches "CB Classic Collection" with shirts designed by Jing Liu

It's about time that the awesome wicking fabric, otherwise known as bamboo, be brought to the world of sports. JUZD's Jing Liu with Toronto designer Terence Chung recently designed a collection of limited edition graphic tees (125 per style) for the CB (Canada Basketball) Authentic label. The series, consisting of five shirts, pays homage to the traditions and milestones of Canada Basketball, which was established in 1923.

The shirts themselves each have a distinctive look and feel with the use of several design treatments, such as flocking and plastisol. In addition to such, each shirt is given a creative name: CB Club, Game Night, The Kid, Seven, and Olympic, which features a reproduction of the maple leaf from the 1936 Berlin Olympics where Canada won a silver medal.

These shirts will be available starting from November 20 at three locations: Centre Sports at the Air Canada Centre, The Sport Gallery, and the CB website (http://shop.basketball.ca). However, to share with our readers, we will be sharing a friends and family discount, which will allow you to save 10% on your preorder.

Weekly Re-Style: Ellen Pompeo

Ellen Pompeo looks fantastic for having her baby daughter Stella only a month ago!! Most new mothers don't have a second to spare, however Ellen didn't do half bad with her outfit on this day.
The outfit is easy to fix! You just need to re-style her in something that can brighten it up, the trick is to accomplish this in a subtle way. Switch the boring black tee for a Juzd crewneck with the honoury number 25 on it. The touch of gold add that missing piece to the outfit. You can find this t-shirt and more on Juzd online store. Always pair a bold tee with other classic items. With stating this rule of thumb, I think a fabulous Silence and Noise boyfriend tweed blazer will set her aside while keeping her classy. The booties and boyfriend jeans are a must for anyone's closet this fall, so I am keeping them on. Although Ellen usually carries around her go-to-wallet, I'd love to swap it up for a cute purple marc by marc jacobs shoulder bag.
And off she goes. . .

JUZD Shows LG Fashion Week that Men do, in fact, Gotstyle

Today marks two weeks since the huge tent down in Liberty Village showed off beautiful fashion lines and designs to media and fashionistas for LG Fashion Week. As a part of the jam-packed (both lineup and audience wise) Gotstyle menswear fashion show, JUZD strutted down the runway with a fierce energy to showcase one of the many styles that Gotstyle sells at the store on King St. W. With looks, such as geek and chic, as well as fancy and sleek, JUZD took care of the urban and hot look. And despite it being a menswear show, our female shirt definitely did make its way into the lineup.
