Awash in Denim
*This blog post is written in partnership with Topman. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own, as always.
Rock hard selvedge denim will always have a place among loyal denim enthusiasts, but I can't under-emphasize how much I love denim with a bit of stretch in it.
(Also, who has the patience to break in a pair of selvedge denim?? It takes years! Y'all are crazy dedicated if that's your thing.)
I wear jeans almost every day, but finding the perfect pair can be tricky. I wore a super cute pair of denim for fashion week a few weeks ago with a tapered leg, and I could not for the life of me get them off by myself. I had to have my partner literally yank them from my body!!
Cute, but way too rigid. <---- this should probably be on my blog's about page, tbh.
The thing is, you don't want TOO much stretch. I find if there's too much elastane or spandex in the fabric, you get a 'saggy ass' by the end of the day. It just stretches more and more throughout the day. A hint of stretch is really all you need.
Thankfully, Topman has my ass covered. ;)
Topman makes rigid denim with the perfect amount of stretch technology built in. I'm wearing the "Stretch Slim Jean" in this post. It moves with me, but keeps it's shape all throughout the day. And despite having a tapered ankle, I can easily get them on and off.
I'm a big fan of a Canadian tuxedo, so I paired my jeans with an indigo dyed denim jacket. There's something about the zipper that feels fresh and modern when you pair it all together. It's more sport than cowboy. The tipped polo, that also has a zipper, helps with that too.
Big advantage to Topman's denim is the price point. They start at just $60. They even have a fit guide to help you, in case you're more into rigid tapered denim than spray on skinny... or you have no idea what either of those descriptions mean.
In the Spring, I love experimenting with different shades of denim. I just ordered two new denim jackets, which means I have a total of 6 now. One in every wash possible. Some would say that's excessive, I say it's necessary. It's the perfect jacket to throw over a tee or button down and instantly look cool and put together! Plus, you can roll up the sleeves!
It's a style staple. I hope you agree. ;)
