‘In Search of Blue Gold’ is a great documentary made by RedBull tv. In the docu they followed David White from Ragtop – London on a trip to Colorado in search for the ultimate rare and old pair of jeans. David is a well known respected denim expert which operated under the name Ragtop. He’s standing on the vintage market in London and he also runs his own vintage shop where he’s selling the most beautiful denim and related items. In this docu he’s visiting another denim expert, Brit Eaton, in Colorado. Brit is one of the biggest denim collectors in the business and has an extremely impressive big collection. They are both so passionate about the blue gold that they joined forces for this trip in search for the ultimate pair of blue gold. In the first part of the docu David is going to old barns together with Brit, they even made a great score, and in the second part David is climbing into an old silver mine which dates from 1890. This is where it’s all about if you’re sharing the passion about the blue denim gold. Check the well made docu in the link.
