Denim Hunters and Jeans Culture
Jeans are equal parts subculture and establishment. Worn as both work clothes and luxury fashion, they are practically universal. This Gesteltan book contains everything you need-and want-to know about jeans.
Blue Blooded is the story of denim and denim culture: The secrets of selvedge. The true origins of the Osaka Five. The immigrants and inventors in the Wild West who created jeans. Exclusive profiles of the independent designers and makers invigorating the denim scene, like 3sixteen and Iron Heart, along with forces like Levi's that shaped the industry. No other garment has the iconic status of jeans. Jeans are never out of fashion, and they continue to outlive other sartorial trends for the foreseeable future.
