Amongst denim connoisseur’s, selvage is the epitome of strength, quality, and endurance, particularly when it comes to breaking in a pair of jeans over the course of a year from ‘raw’ to ‘distressed’. This type of process is personal and the results vary based on how one wears their jeans. It is especially popular amongst those who study and collect vintage Americana. There is nothing like breaking in a new pair of raw selvage, whether your wearing your A.P.C. New Standards, Pure Blue Japan, 3Sixteen, or in my case RRL. Taking this theme of quality to another level, Nike has dressed it’s classic Blazer silhouette in premium ‘Selvage’ denim. Featuring stitching that resembles clean inseams, and premium leather much like the rear belt patches on various selvage denim, this shoe is right up any denim aficionado’s alley.
Hopefully as I wear these, I can achieve results similar to those on my own selvage denim jeans. Also, look out for the Nike Terminator version, which we will be receiving sometime soon.
Doooo Youuu Knowww Selllvaggggeeeee???
