We have also received a shipment of ETHYL jeans with coordinating jackets and vests. This year Ethyl's Euro jeans compare in quality and style to "Not Your Mother's Jeans" carried by name brand stores. We have four styles for fall in a full range of sizes. Ethyl also has offered a tummy control tank in black which we have on hand. The long-sleeve version will be arriving soon. Come by and check out these fall fashions by Ethyl.
