It is extremely important that one understands the target audience for Joe's Jeans before making a call on the stock. The customer who shops for Joe's Jeans or True Religion isn't looking for jeans, they're looking for JEANS (at the likes of Macy's and Bloomingdale's, not Wal-Mart [ (NYSE:WMT)] and Target [ (NYSE:TGT)]. And they won't stop until their wardrobe is complete. ...

They have billboards posted in their stomping ground of California, and their jeans share rack space with True Religion at Macy's/Bloomingdale's. Both [Joe's Jeans] and [True Religion] outsource their manufacturing, allowing them to focus on the pulse of fashion and thereby design the next big trend.
