SKINNY DENIM DIVORCE
Morning Style Mongers.
Differences between my skinny jeans and me have become untenable and we have parted ways. There's un-reconcilable disparity in our courses and intents; call it ‘middle age jeans crisis’ or whatever but cant go on. Was already feeling a little bit disconnected in skinnys, then I saw an image snapped by a photographer of me working on a models look during a shoot. See below.
I’m in Uniqlo Skinny Tapper unwashed raw-ish denim, navy Sunspel singlet and Guccis snaffles, as standard. The model is a very slender 6’3” and is in singlet, and high waisted cream flannel Oxford bags (with check blazer) by Sexton.
He: suave, nonchalant, chic. Effortless.
Me: gnarled, try-hard, like an out of date MR2 driving hairdresser from Kent- at best.
There other differences, but this will do for now. I just feel like a bit of a tit in skinnys now am pushing 50. But where to go, what to do, who do I need to know? I put ‘my people’ on it 'bout a month ago. I fancied a boot cut flare. Still do. Think Eagles, circa Hotel California.
Or maybe that Robert Plant fella off of Led Zeppelin.
Had a pair boot-cup lined up from Nudie- moved so slow, a year between some emails- then they bloody discontinued em. Also heard rumours bout Cavali’s and Fords and stuff. Ford wont even answer my emails. Check the ebay some people said (flared jean expert Allan from PWVC). Nothing. How bout big wide numbers from Levi and Tautz instead? Are the only thing I might be able work with. What do you think? See belows.
Pressing questions remain though, such as will they work with Gucci loafers? The need to. Will they work with jodhpur boots and the like, I really need to know. There's these from Tautz, too, but just don't know. I dont what is to become of my denim status. Dont relish these guys below, but cant go back to Skinny.
So, what the fuck am I gonna do for denim jeans?
