Your Everyday Blue Jeans Are Now Black
If you think black jeans are for guys who ride motorcycles, pomade their hair, or play in bands, you’re pretty much right, historically speaking. But now that’s changing, thanks to the new trend toward black selvage denim. It breaks in with as much character as your blue denim, it has the cool selvage seam detail when you turn up the cuffs, and most crucially, it’s not as midnight black—read: not as aggressive and severe—as traditional black jeans. Which is exactly what makes this new black denim something everyone can pull off, including rockers, prepsters, golfers, fashion freaks, tech geeks, college English majors, international playboys, dads, and, well, you.
