midweSTYLE: Dad jeans

November 21, 2011
Have you ever seen something so ugly that you had to have it?
A good handful of my purchases turn out like this.
If it’s ugly, no one will buy it.
If no one will buy, it will get marked down (sooner).
If no one will buy it and it’s ugly, there will be a full size run for me to sift through.
Like these dad jeans. A baby blue denim from the archive of the 70’s, so faded in color. Surely a dad from the ’70s wore this same style and cut. Moderately awkward fit and color, kind of rigid and damn near impossible to match with anything.
Of course, I wanted them. No one else did.

On Jeff: Faded navy military jacket by J.Crew; indigo striped shirt by Club Monaco; grey crewneck sweatshirt by Jack Spade; baby blue denim by Club Monaco; desert boots by Clark’s with grey laces from J.crew; speckled boot socks from Target; black framed glasses by Gant Rugger.

    Love it – even though I’ve found style religion in the past year or two, I have a pair of Wrangler stretch “bleach” jeans that I’m never getting rid of. Wear ‘em proudly.

    Wow, I probably would have passed right over those, but you make them look super cool. It just goes to show how sticking to your personal style will pretty much always end up looking good.

    “Have you ever seen something so ugly that you had to have it?”

    Pretty much sums up half of my belongings. I was just talking about this in regards to vehicles. HHR… You are so ugly that you are beautiful.

    Your Dad jeans are looking super snazzy!
