The dyed blue denim
The dyed blue denim cotton textile has long been seen as the most democratic of materials - suitable for the blue and white-collar worker, the young and the old, the creative and the corporate.
As such, denim has been manipulated and transformed by designers looking to express a sense of gritty realness in their work for over a hundred years.
Denim has seemingly been used in every way conceivable since its invention in the late 1800s; worn by men in every profession in one way or another. From the baggy rolled-up pants of Genoese sailors, to the multi-pocketed versions favoured by Italian craftsman, in jackets worn by American gold miners, on the caps of East London dock workers as well as sucked tight to the limbs of rock stars, pop stars and every model to grace the catwalk.
The best thing about denim is its versatility, its character and its sheer resilience. You can wash it, shrink it, iron it, dirty it, rip it and drag it along the ground and it only makes the garment more personal and interesting.
So with summer around the corner and an acknowledgement that denim is a trans-seasonal element of every man’s wardrobe.
