Jeans have been associated with cool and comfort ever since the first cowboy and cowgirl locked eyes across the pasture and rode off to get married and raise cowbabies. Rope in a style with today's Groupon: for $39, you get $100 worth of designer jeans and a custom jean fitting at espy.
Recently lauded in the Calgary Herald, espy owner Megan Szanik and her guild of in-house stylists clothe Calgarian women and men in well-fitting fashion pieces from cities around the world. Legs convinced no pair of jeans can flatter them will think again after the boutique’s pros use their years of experience and discerning eyes to find the pair of pants that best complements the customer’s body type. Favourite features take centre stage in fitted, loose, or skinny-style jeans, and less favourite features, such as badly behaved house guests, are bribed with candy to keep out of sight. espy carries more than 60 women's jean styles measuring 24–38 inches (or sizes 0–16/18), and 40 denim variations for men are available, measuring 28–40 inches and sporting inseams up to 36 inches. Dungaree designers, whose wares range from $79 to $209, include Mavi ($99–$129), Hudson ($199), gsus ($179), and To Die For ($99). Although professionally fitted jeans will feel like a second skin, wearing them in the shower is optional.
At espy, fashion savant Megan Szanik and her elite style squad orchestrate custom fittings of designer jeans, a method earning the boutique nods from outlets such as the Calgary Herald. The 3,000-square-foot retail space houses more than 150 handpicked denim styles that flatter male and female silhouettes with a wide range of sizes and inseams. Before customers leap into jeans, fashion stylists determine leg and hip dimensions to gauge an ideal fit. Wearers can further complement bottoms with the help of tops by dozens of high-end designers that attract stares from even the most stoic mannequins.
