It actually strikes me as quite weird that I’m picking denim today, for a couple reasons. One is that its unbearably hot–we’re all sick of hearing it–and that just doesn’t bode well for denim clad legs. Also, I have countless pairs of denim that just occupy space in my quite limited, and stereotypically small, Manhattan closet. Each morning I sift through all of them with no real intention to don them in our current Mercurian summer. Getting to the point, this pair of denim from the Swedes at Nudie Jeans. Come autumn, there is nothing like reverting to a trusty pair of indigo denim. Sturdy, no frills, warm – all that. Consider this a jump start on the season.
