Men don’t just wear jeans. We have relationships with jeans.
And like most relationships, they get better with age and the key is appreciating their unique imperfections.
Nashville native Davis Gooch is a denimhead who has studied the ins and outs of the jean business. Along the way he has also put together an amazing collection of perfectly broken-in pairs.
Here he shows us the benefits of choosing the right pieces, making them your own, and wearing the hell out of them.
1. Tough Guy Tuxedo
“In 2009 this awesome couple opened a vintage and denim boutique in the skeleton of an old service station in Nashville TN. This is one of the early runs of their ‘Willie’ – a straight leg jean with an excellent fit and subtle details. This pair is from 2009, made right inside the pump station using Japanese selvedge.”
