A few months back, we completely immersed ourselves in the ever-expanding denim market to find pieces for "Beyond Blue," Alex White's January portfolio shot by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer. We fell in love with several pieces that for one reason or another, didn't make it into the story. Here they are:

Diesel Matic pink and white splashed jeans: Because sometimes you don't want to wear blue jeans. This hot pink pair does take a bit of bravery, but it's worth it. $195 at Diesel stores.

Marc Jacobs mens' cuffed jean: Slim and a little high-waisted, they look vintage and modern at the same time, kind of an updated rockabilly look. $395 at Marc Jacobs.
