Hi. My name is Allen. I'm an eighteen-year-old college student, and this is my first year in college. I attend a local community college, so I don't get to experience the typical freshman year. Nevertheless, it's not something I place so much emphasis on, as I'm much more of a reserved person who remains rather indifferent about such hyped-up things.
I started caring about the clothing I put on my back in, I'd say, junior year of high school, although my sense of style wasn't that great back then, looking back at it. I used to dress myself up in Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch, thinking I looked quite fashionable with my choices. Don't get me wrong. I still believe both Hollister and A&F have great clothing here and there, but I just didn't know how to put together a good-looking outfit then.
Whether we like it or not, our appearance is how others will judge us. It's just an aspect of society that we have to deal with, and there's really no way of getting around it. Although I oppose judging someone solely based on what he or she is wearing, I still think it's important to dress up the way we want others to view us and the way we want to see ourselves. I guess I've been dealing with materialism over the years, as going after clothing that's aesthetically pleasing has become almost instinctive. I still have my priorities straight, I guess.
More recently, I've started to get into raw selvage denim, or just selvage denim in general. I got my first pair of selvage denim this year, and it's the PRPS Fury denim in "six-month wash." It's currently my favorite pair of jeans at the moment, for I absolutely adore the look and the quality. I'm awaiting the arrival of a pair of Naked & Famous Weird Guys Dirty Fade. It's a pair of raw selvage denim that will fade over time as I wear it. I find the history behind denim manufacturing very interesting, and I'm glad I decided to learn about it.
