haha, maybe we're all wrong about our denim selection:

"[Jeans were] 'inexpensive to buy, inexpensive to maintain,' that they suggested 'that neither individuality nor distinction can be bought in a clothing store.... "The new clothes demonstrate a significant new relationship between man and technology," he wrote. "Basically they are machine-made, and there is no attempt to hide that fact, no shame attached to mass-produced goods, no social points lost for wearing something that sells at $4.99 from coast to coast and has its measurements printed on the outside for all to read.
""

haha, this book apparently talks about how that vision of denim failed and now it's designer, etc.
