if your jeans were a car...which car would your jeans be???

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
what are the car equivalent (in terms of quality, etc) of some of the jeans discussed here. What is the Rolls-royce of denim? The hummer (21 OZ ironheart), etc.




I'll start LEVI'S=Ford

The Rolls of denim is probably a pair of R for 45RPM Jomons, or, if you are into vintage cars, the Silver Phantom of denim are the Aihikos. They are beautiful, imperfect, and shit stupid expensive (even by Japanese standards.)

APCs are like volvos. No frills, gimmicks, or flash, but completely unbreakable and radical in every other way.

Diesels are like Lexus; all style and no substance.

I'd say the PBJ AI-001 must be like a Mercedes G55 :P Something about slubby ass denim makes me think tough, I don't know if it actually is or not tho.

Salt WRX jeans. Get it?? :P

Both are very underrated but deliver quite a bang for the buck.

Helmut Lang = Audi... simple, high quality, pretty expensive but not ridiculous, and sometimes odd/interesting stylistic quirks.

Nudies would be like BMWs - good, solid design and decent construction and parts, a little sporty, modern. And really overpriced in the States compared to their home market.

Rogan would be a Jag. Really beautiful and distinctive, but shit ass expensive and needing constant repairs.

My Nudie Thin Finns are like my Mini...just enough room inside to sit comfortably, but no room for no junk in da trunk

My SC40400N's would be a rebuilt 55 Chevy. My RRDS would be a 1970 Pontiac GTO.

my h&m jeans are the hundai sonata of denim. Glad I don't drive. Diesels are the dodge charger on blocks in front of your house-used to be cool; but now they're just broken. energie are a honda civic with purple lightning bolts painted on the side-embarassingly young. chip and pepper are chevy tahoes-kinda fratty. paper denim and cloth are the honda accord-styled; but muted and mostly just efficient. and, of course, levi's..a pickup truck from the 70's. I want the ferrari of denim. what would that be?

Ummm I think a better analogy would be Diesels are like Alfa Romeo. A Lexus is probably one of the best engineered cars on the road today.

yea, Lexus probably has more substance than style these days (that awesome 2 seater coupe the exception)
