What’s your favorite pair of jeans?

At the moment I would say my Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) 501 from 1954, from back when they were still made in the US. Also, a Denham “Forge” Virgin Selvedge from one of their first collections, and a black straight cut from Benzak Denim Developers.

A Nudie Lab (former high-end line of Nudie Jeans) variation of the Type I jacket, made out of natural dyed Japanese selvedge denim.

Tricker’s, even though I cannot really wear them here on Bali.
