GOING FOR A SPIN: Auto enthusiasts will have the rare opportunity to test-ride the much-hyped Tesla all-electric roadster this Saturday, during a cobranded event with denim brand Agave at Malouf’s, the upscale specialty retailer in Burlingame, Calif. Agave founder and designer Jeff Shafer will be on hand to promote his men’s and women’s jeans, but a purchase won’t be required to take a spin (in the passenger seat) in the cutting-edge $109,000 auto, which is the first highway-ready, zero-emission vehicle for sale in the U.S. The Tesla’s battery charge will be good for about 30 rides, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Agave has a long-standing relationship with Tesla, outfitting the staff in the start-up’s showrooms in Los Angeles and Menlo Park in California-casual combos of jeans and knit tops. “We both have a luxury customer that wants the coolest, newest and best designs and be eco-conscious at once,” said Shafer of the partnership.
