I can see his point of view,although I can see a difference between scuffy work jeans and tidy jeans ( and other people would not see a difference) I dont consider jeans as 'smart' ( whatever they cost).Maybe in a lot of ways it would have been better if jeans would have remained workwear ? were jeans the first item on a path leading to Shell suits and sartorial scruffdom ?
I definitely like the mixing of the looks idea,as I said about my Barbour jeans and Brogues,if I wore Cavalry twill trousers instead of jeans I would look like a wannabe gamekeeper...the jeans are the 'foil' imo.
