LOS ANGELES — Women who covet premium denim trends but balk at paying more than $80 for a pair of jeans now have another option: a moderately priced line called Else that is produced by Joe’s Jeans and sold exclusively at Macy’s.
Rolling out this spring to 141 doors and the retailer’s Web site, Else represents a move by Joe Dahan, creative director of Joe’s Jeans, to bridge the gap between the high and low ends of the denim market. The 25 stockkeeping units in Else’s inaugural collection include a jean jacket, skirts, shorts and four fits of jeans. Basic styles such as boot cuts in dark washes make up half the line, with the remainder comprising novelty looks like skinny jeans dyed coral, mustard, thyme green and sienna.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
