A fan of J Brand's hip-hugging fit and complimenting washes, we were bummed to find that the jeans company discontinued their Green Label.
Fortunately, they introduced Air Wash, a new specialty wash that uses 30% less water than traditional denim laundering, which J Brand describes as "bright blue coloring accented by vintage-inspired whiskering for a naturally worn-in look and feel." For Spring 2011, J Brand released two styles: the "Gwen" high-rise cuffed short, pictured above, and the "912" low-rise pencil leg. Take a look:

The Gwen in Air Wash retails for $165 and is available for purchase at J Brand; the 912 in Air Wash retails for $200 and is available for purchase at Revolve Clothing.
The water-saving value per pair of jeans is comparable to Levi's minimum water savings per jean in their Waterless jeans, which reduces water consumption on an average of 28% per pair of jeans and up to 96% for some styles.
But come on, J brand, we'd like to see more styles utilize this wash.
