Denim dudes

"Denim, denotes a rugged cotton twill textile, in which the weft passes under two or more warp fibers, producing the familiar diagonal ribbing identifiable on the reverse of the fabric" (Wikipedia)

"Durable twill-woven fabric with colored (usually blue) warp (lengthwise) and white filling (crosswise) threads, also sometimes woven in colored stripes. The name originated in the French serge de Nîmes. Denim is usually all-cotton, though it is sometimes made of a cotton-synthetic mixture. Decades of use in the clothing industry, especially in the manufacture of overalls and trousers worn for heavy labour, have demonstrated denim's durability, a quality that, along with its comfort, made denim jeans extremely popular for leisure wear in the late 20th century" (Britannica)

It's no wonder that men who wear denims have that certain ruggedness about them.
So, how many pairs of denims do you have?

"Imagine if all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stonewashed denim" - P.J. O'Rourke

Beautiful photos! Love the ones where the denim is riding just low enough on the hips to get a glimpse of manscape. I'll list you on my new blog, would love it if you'd do the same for me. said...
