LOS ANGELES — In a time of heightened fiscal austerity, Civil Smith hopes to woo customers with hip basics that are as easy on the body as they are on the wallet in its fall debut.

Using only selvage denim, Civil Smith capped the wholesale prices for jeans at $82 for men’s and $65 for women’s. The men’s jeans are cut in a relaxed fit with enough distressing to yield a soft hand and a smattering of holes for character. Women’s jeans come in a weathered boyfriend version sitting low on the hips, as well as another loose style that cinches with a buckle in the back. For women who prefer a sculpted leg, there are also ponte di roma leggings that resemble five-pocket jeans on top with a ribbed hem at the bottom.
