“A CBS production with requisite weird voiceover, this is actually a rather informative documentary for those unfamiliar with denim’s roots or just the ultimate denim porn for those in the know. A short history of the world’s most popular fabric, we’re treated to Michael Allen Harris’ Blue Gold mine finds, Lynn ‘Levi’s’ Downey’s white glove gems and visit modern makers Roy Slaper (again) and Imogene + Willie. If the sight of a dusty, rusted buttoned, pleated denim jacket sends your pulse racing or if you’re just looking to learn a little something, press play.”

This aint’ exactly news, but we’ve been reading this and spreading the link amongst friends over the weekend and thought it was worth a re-post. If you need to brush up on the history of denim, check out this documentary posted at Rawr Denim, Levi’s As America: A Riveting Icon Part 1.
