It is really close to impossible to keep up with what to do or not do when it comes to denim. For example, I thought you were not suppose to be caught dead in Lee jeans. Am I wrong? Apparently so. I am a true Levis man and basically have 2 denim rules to live by, NEVER acid wash or pleats.
Like all things in menswear, washed denim never disappeared, it just stepped out of the limelight for a bit. We remember attempting to bring them back under the spotlight a few times but we usually get comments like ‘looks terrible’, ‘dad jeans’, ‘Obama wears these’. But this is shaping up to be the year that folks come round to the idea of washed denim. All we’ve gotta say is ‘what took you so long?’ (Crooked Tongues)
