When it debuted in 2006, the clothing label William Rast was primarily a denim jeans brand. The brainchild of Justin Timberlake — yes, the suave, singing one — and his business partner, Trace Ayala, William Rast started out by fusing vintage Americana aesthetics with unexpected (at least considering JT’s pop music background) references to biker culture. William Rast still produces all the skinny jeans, studded leather jackets, and aviator sunglasses that a badass could ever want, but has also experimented with women’s silk tank tops, cotton skirts, dressy men’s blazers and eyewear of a somewhat bookish quality. The inspiration behind all this sartorial creativity is William Rast, the fictional bad-boy character for whom the brand's graphic T-shirts and leather jackets are designed.
In the market for new fall denim? Look no further: With this great selection from William Rast we've got sleek bootcuts, painted-on skinny jeans, and easy trouser styles — all in the stylishly distressed washes that have earned the label legions of adoring fans since its launch in 2006.
The name says it all: Comfily baggy from waistline to knee, and meant to be cuffed or pegged to hit at the lower calf.

"I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans... They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity—all I hope for in my clothes." So spoke no less than Yves Saint Laurent, and it's certainly hard to argue with fit-to-flatter denim. Tuck straight leg styles into your favorite winter boots, or switch it up with retro-inspired, mid-rise boot-cut styles.
