1. Brooklyn Denim Co. is having a store-wide sale right now on select items at 50% off.

2. When we saw these mini-jeans from Momotaro, it was a unanimous “aaaaw” reaction.

3. Take an exclusive trip to the Mr. Porter Office with A Continuous Lean as they ponder whether the world is ready for specialized men’s online shopping outlets.

4. In the mood for some preppy fashion, dudes? The GANT Rugger “Nouveau Prep” SS’12  menswear Campaign is being accused of trying too hard, but we think it delivers the brand’s DNA pretty directly.

5. Denim endures! We love seeing denim artifacts from the 1800′s that, with a bit of washing and Denim Therapy, could probably be worn again!

This Late 1800s Selvedge Denim Umbrella Might Not Keep You Dry (But It’s Awesome)


If you thought novelty items constructed with denim was a modern thing (we spotted a patchwork denim ottoman in a department store recently that sported “pieces of jeans” with fake labels mixed into the seams), think again! This late 1800s denim umbrella just goes to show that the obsession with denim and desire to stretch the textile into as many areas of ones life as possible is a long-running tradition!

Talk About Vintage… 1880s Levi’s & Other Antique Denim Finds


At Repeat To Fade, we get the chance to see the Blue Highway brothers (who design Sweden’s Blue Highway line in a small Eskilstuna basement) follow their obsession with denim knowledge to the deserts of Nevada, in search of really old denim. They find scraps of 1880s Levi’s, 1900s Levi’s lookalikes, 1922 Levi’s, tattered and torn (in need of a few months of Denim Therapy). According to the blog, they actually dug these up out of the desert. Is that wild or what? This post is from Xmas 2009, but considering how old this denim is, it doesn’t seem so outdated. Check out the photos below.
