Everyone knows how hard it is to shop for a great pair of jeans. Thanks to Turkish label Mavi jeans we don?t need to spend hours trying on Sass & Bide jeans that are far too low or far too tight for the average Australian girl. The Mavi jean has finally made it to Australia, so you can now relax. There are four styles for women, all slim and straight-legged, and three styles for men, in a more relaxed fit. We love them because they look worn, edgy and personal with their own special oil marks. They come in all shades, dark denim, aged or faded. We suggest you grab a pair of the faded and wear them with a pair of pink pumps. For stockist enquiries telephone (02) 9211 4522.Don?t forget Jeans for Genes Day, Friday August 2, 2002.
