These are the last among the half a dozen Gap 1969 bf jeans from last year. They’re called selvage (..is a type of denim which forms a clean natural edge that does not unravel more information here) and are a dark blue cotton with button closure and no stretch . As there’s no stretch it was harder to gauge the fit but in the end I just got my regular size bearing in mind they will probably give in time. I really like them! They make me think of jeans from the 1950’s and maybe that’s why I felt like using a small, ladylike structured bag. The buttons are a bit fiddly as I’m out of practice – only my old Levis have buttons and I haven’t worn them for over a decade! The bag is my latest Hermès love called the Rugby. I realised I need a couple more ‘neutral’ bags and this is the most perfect tan colour I’ve been looking for.
I haven’t shortened them so the turn ups are a bit thick and lumpy. My jumper is a cotton/cashmere mix by Gap Men last year, so soft and not at all flimsy. The silk scarf is an ancient sale find from Singapore when my family visited on holiday – I was 16! It was in a department store and my mother and I went our separate ways to shop but ended up with this exact same scarf each! I think she still has it too. The bag is Céline, also here.
Thanks for reading!
