I love visible button flies, and will admit to wanting the Totem Jeans worn in the Sex & The City film. Combined with the baggy, dropped crotch silhouette, they have the slightly old-fashioned feel of 18th century breeches.
Denim is all about authenticity. And sex, drugs and rock & roll. And being iconic.
I follow what's going on at the relevant fashion shows and brands, who's wearing what jean, and the forums where boys post pictures of the progress of their latest pair of jeans. I try to pull out the good stuff and put it here; find the insight in the information.
I don't believe in high & low culture in jeans. I like knowing about who uses original cotton thread, but I’m not going to rule them out if the denim hasn’t been lovingly handcrafted by tiny blue angels. I’m as interested in looking cool in a pair of high street jeans as I am in a new Japanese denim atelier.
