My Style: My monogrammed jeans

While everyone is talking about monograms, I thought I'd show you my favourite personalized piece - my jeans. Yes, that's right - I have monogrammed jeans. When I was writing I Love Your Style in 2007, I wanted to include a section on monograms in my Classic chapter. I was trying to think of an unconventional way to wear one, and so I went to see my friend Eleanor Lembo, who worked at Earnest Sewn at the time, and asked if there was any way they'd sew my initials on the back right pocket of my jeans for me. "No problem, we'd love to," she replied. So some inspiration went back and forth, and when we agreed on a design, it was sewn on the back pocket and sent to me the next day. I still wear them all the time, and I've never seen anyone else with the same pair.

Can you believe my monogram is ABC?!?


  1. It's pretty awesome that it turns out as ABC, haha. :)

  2. Love these. Does anyone remember a small post about a beautiful tuscan hotel here ? I've been looking for it but can't find it :-(

  3. Hi Fanny - Do you mean a small Spanish hotel? I wrote about Trasierra last July. Amanda

  4. Hi Amanda - so very lovely to hear from you, thank you. I loved your posts on Trasierra, it's been on my go-to list for a little while. I thought I remembered a small post about another hotel in Italy, I think I've dreamt it. Do you have a favorite on the Amalfi Coast ? Such a joy to read your online diary xx F

    1. I haven't been to the Amalfi coast since I was just out of college and staying in youth hostels! Sorry not to be more helpful.

  5. Love the monogrammed jeans! I would totally wear it too -- it's just awesome design!
