New York - Denim retail chain National Jean Co. has made its way to the city and is celebrating its opening tonight (the soft opening was last week). Located in NYC's Upper East Side, this is the first store to open up in the heart of a major city since the chain got its start 15 years ago. Shoppers can peruse the "denim library" where they'll find up to 3,000 pairs of jeans from favorites like Seven For All Mankind, Hudson, and Paper, Denim & Cloth, plus contemporary apparel tops and T-shirts. Sorry, fellas, this store is only stocked with women's apparel.
Don't live in the city? Don't worry! The chain has 12 stores throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest, with a 13th store sprouting up in Hartford, Connecticut in the next month or so. Us West Coast honeys can shop from NationalJeanCompany.com until our next trip to the Big Apple.
