Finally...I've arrived, thank you, thank you...you're all too kind!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm Mike and first I'd like to state that it's good to be able to join a community that shares my passion for denim. I'm a collector in that I buy a lot and sort of hoard them as I'm reluctant to let any go once I've gotten pass the point of never wearing them often enough. Although I'm wondering if such a point exist ;-) either way I enjoy nice stylish denim, name brand preferrably, AG- the Matchbox series, Diesel, J Brand- Kane and Tyler fits, Levi's 511, NEUW Iggy and also Naked and Famous skinnies. these are all of the brands I have and love to wear, I've tried many but these are my go to brands. I'll try any brand really, but they have to fall under the FAQS (Fit, Awesome, Quality, Stylish) but I suppose most people go for that these days...only most though.

 

Living in the Washington, D.C. area I see styles of all kinds and enjoy that this city, my hometown, is so colorful. I served in the U.S. Navy for some time and so I went away and experienced other cultures, but when I came back it seems that all of those cultures were filtered thru this area, and I couldn't be happier. My friends would and often do call me up-to-date and far beyond style trends, I'm all about expressing ones self thru the wearing of clothing, especially when it comes to denim. Anyways I'll stop my rambling, any questions...ask away, thanks and take care!

Welcome to the community Mike! Sounds like you have quite the denim collection. I'm in the DC area too! Have you ever checked out Denim Bar? I think there's one in Pentagon City, I've never had the chance to stop and check it out though.

Thanks for the responses and warm welcome everyone!

 

Jennifer, yea I've been to Denimbar, nice place, they keep a great stock from what I can see whenever I do stop by. Although I do most of my shopping online, as I find there are more choices out there on the web. I've often heard people say they have to try on clothing before they buy them, but I'm built slender thankfully, so I can and will take chances with online shopping. My closet is stock full of styles I've collected and held onto over the last few years or so, I like to keep these going, but more recently I've been getting into colors and patterns, bright and dark and I gotta say I'm loving it! I get many compliments, so I guess it's my own niche I've gotten into and feel confident about where it's taking me. So we'll see ;)

Ooooh, sounds like you are a real denim enthusiast, you will fit in nicely here!! I like J Brand Tyler fit as well, so simplistic, timeless and a great fit.

 

Glad you joined the cool kids club, :p

You sound like me as a collector! I've been collecting since I was 16 (24 now) and I think I must have in the region of 300 pairs of jeans! Maybe a little bit more. I've let quite a lot go over the years, to lessen the collection, but I have such an obsession and addiction to denim, I can't help it! Even the ones that don't fit me anymore and are really pretty I wont let them go, for that reason. You would be suprised actually just how many people love jeans and denim in general, so you have definitely come to the right place!

Lorna, Eric

 

I absolutely agree, over the years I've collected and worn all styles from many different brands, but like many things in the fashion world, some come and stay, while othere come and go quickly haha! Really though I try to keep it simple, with a little bit of a surprise, I stick to skinny and slim fits, with a bootcut to throw in here and there ;-) I think it's all about believability and confidence in expression.

 

Thanks for the greetings, talk to you all soon!

Yeah you are right there, it's all to do with your personality which is what makes fashion so important. If everyone dressed the same, that would be so boring. Fashion statements are made by pure expression of yourself. Glad you found DenimBlog and share our passion for the blue fabric!
