Jean Stories is about everything denim. Who’s wearing it, why we love it, and how we live in it everyday.
Jane Herman, Co-founder and Creative Director
Jane grew up in Los Angeles selling jeans at her family’s Ron Herman stores. As a fashion writer in New York she’s contributed to Vogue, T Magazine, where she was the online editor, and Elle, Glamour, and Travel + Leisure magazines. Jane was also the Branded Content Director at Vogue and, most recently, the Editorial Director for Theory. Jane co-founded Jean Stories in 2013 because she loves wearing jeans and can talk about them all day, every day. Her right-now favorites: A pair of custom-tailored vintage men’s Denimes, AMO’s Babe style jeans (in every wash), and Levi’s 501s that she’s working on breaking in from scratch.

Florence Kane, Co-founder
Florence’s fondest denim memories were from the 90s: stealing her dad’s Levi’s and Pendleton plaids when she was in high school in San Diego; decorating her room with Calvin Klein Jeans ads. Later, as a writer at Vogue, she covered fashion news and chronicled the comings and goings of trends and styles – among them, emerging denim labels. After a stint in Los Angeles, where she was a senior editor at C Magazine, Florence returned to New York to start Jean Stories with Jane. She has since acted as the Digital Fashion Director at Glamour.com. Follow Florence on Instagram: @Florence_Kane
