GEREN FORD Elastic Vest in Faded Denim, available at CHOCOSHO.
Yes, yes, yes. Very nice. Geren Ford has created a vest that is helping me forget about the trashy version of denim vests — you know, the ones with the ripped-off sleeves — which are popular amongst the motorcycle gang set. I was so afraid that all the destroyed denim hoopla going on right now would also lead to the revival of the destroyed denim jackets. My fashion nightmares awakened the frightening memories of the mullet hair: another association with the biker gang/”My Name is Earl” overall look. Eep! Some parts of the 80s should just stay back in the 80s. Anybody feel me on this one?
But, back to the present. Geren Ford managed to create a tasteful rendition of a breezy summer-friendly denim vest. The elastic vest is chic, elegant and sustainable through a four-hour road trip from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. Believe me; being cooped up inside a car for hours is no fun, but the journey is worth it when you arrive in wine country and step out in style.
