GQ ran this shot in September, and I think it is one of the best versions of ripped/worn jeans I have seen in a while.
I can’t bring myself to buy “pre-ripped” jeans.
I was looking at a few pairs of my old jeans (the ones I was debating whether to taper the leg or to leave full) and realized that I have a very specific wear pattern to my jeans that is as personal as a fingerprint (and probably everyone does). Now that I realize it – I would feel self-conscious wearing ripped jeans that didn’t have the fraying on the right thigh left by my keys, or the abrasions on the coin pocket. I was surprised that even the stitching on the back pocket of the jeans was popped in the same manner and location on both pairs (stupid wallet).
Is there a rinse that I can use to slightly “re-darken” the denim?
I think the color now is great, but they will only get lighter and I want to keep them in them close to this shade.

…a.k.a. Undies :) BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven’t posted any fashion No-No’s for some time. But these are almost as bad as the thong jeans we posted awhile back. I figured a great way to end the year/begin the year would by a great big belly roll looking at these DENIM underwear! Here are some Rufskin Denim Briefs. I think that all men want is a Denim Diaper loaded with buckles and ya know, METAL under their clothes. I’m sure they’d rather wear Ladies Thongs first. Read on, if you dare, for more giggles y’all. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
I love Helena Bonham-Carter, fiancé of Tim Burton. Her fashion taste is eccentric and eclectic. Likewise, are her movie roles. She is Bellatrix Lestrange, the voice of the corpse bride, and coming next, she will be The Red Witch in the newest Alice in Wonderland. Sadly, it’s not set to open until March 2010. I’m so excited! That was my favorite childhood movie!
Anyway, back to the dish, here is Helena with her chubby little baby, Nell, in her reconstructed and embellished Levi’s. (This was my full-time job before blogging on designer denim!) Very cool Helena!

Do you wear the boots with the fur, or Shearling, as the case may be? While many of us joke about wearing UGG boots with jeans being “out” – the company that produces the boots says their sales are better than ever! Check out this article:
Surprised that UGGs are still selling out?
By Sharon Feiereisen
I’m not surprised that Uggs still, after all these years, are selling-out all over the place. I passed by the New York City Soho Ugg store a few days ago and there was a line of people waiting to get into the relatively expansive store. Despite rival boots popping-up all over the place – many of which are pricy alternatives – like Emu and Australia Love Collective, not to mention ski boots from everyone from Marc Jacobs to Pucci, Uggs are still the penultimate when it comes to winter weather. Even I wear them despite the fact that they’re made of suede, are not water-proof, and never last longer than one season. There just isn’t anything I’ve found to be more attractive that keeps my feet warm in these cool and snow-filled months.
Given the recent swarm of cold weather and snow, retailers have had an even easier time selling Ugg boots. Stanley Eisenman, owner of Stanley Eisenman Fine Shoes in Fort Worth, Texas told WWD that “everyone’s coming in looking for Ugg. They’ve become the perennial gift of the footwear industry.” While president of Summerlin Shoes in Las Vegas Richard Olson said, “our Ugg business is as good as ever.”
It seems like Ugg boots are like iPods – even though they keep breaking and people know in the back of their minds that they’re not the best out there – people just keep on buying them.
