For 6 months, Gordon and Renee from Denim Therapy are wearing raw denim jeans everyday, and documenting their experience on Tumblr. Every Friday you can follow their progression here. This was week 4 (see last weeks article here).
Gordon (jeans pictured above): It has been a rainy week in NYC, and I have been scared that my rain soaked Nudie’s will bleed onto furniture, other clothes, etc. But, they have not! I don’t know if it’s because they have been wet a few times this week, but they are noticeably softer lately. They keep getting more comfortable with every wear!
Renee (jeans pictured above): I was so careful the first few weeks of wearing my Jean Shop jeans, but now I’m trying to abuse them. Wear is showing up around the back pockets and knees–basically anyplace that bends with me as I walk or sit. I love watching them change. Perhaps I should try something to speed up the process. Rooftop gardening? Extreme sports? In the next few weeks I’ll be having a few styling sessions, so stay tuned!
Don’t forget to check out our Tumblr everyday to see how we’re wearing our jeans, and we’ll see you right here on the DT blog next Friday!
