3. When’s the last time you looked really, really close at your favorite raw denim? Heddels talks hidden back-pocket rivets:
“According to history, rivets extruding on the outside of the denim were originally covered in 1937 due to inflicting horse saddle and furniture damage. Though saddle damage is one of our last concerns in today’s day and age, hidden rivets still have much practical application. They effectively strengthen points of weakness on a pair of jeans, thereby tacking on many more years of wear.”
4. 7 For All Mankind goes on sale today via Gilt Group!
