But I still disagree with you on the designer denim thing. I see desinger denim being jeans like, Prada denim or D & G denim. I consider designer denim as a poor excuse to be labled as a jean. I just see it kind of gressy...This Red Ear is not like these in terms of fits or detail. It is made in real looms with real indigo with real( original fits etc...) Its identiy, I believe is really cool.
I would never buy a designer denim brand. I am a 501 guy. I have rockabily attributes and listen to hardcore music to fall asleep. Let me tell you that I would buy some more Red Ear.
to me designer denim doesn't necessarily mean bad jeans. i just think it has that reputation because many designers sell expensive jeans that are not high quality.
i say that paul smith jeans are designer because paul smith is a hot designer right now. but you are right, the jeans have a lot more classic themes.
it's very interesting to see how much you love those paul smith red ears, considering that you are a 501 purest. i'm sure paul smith would be happy to hear this!
