J’ has been a good friend of mine for a while now, and the only guy I would ever let near me with a tattoo gun. We bounce ideas off each other all the time and somewhere in one of those exchanges came the topic of jeans. I take it as a sign of good taste that he has been looking for a solid pair of selvege denim for months now and found nothing that suits him. The current skinny/narrow leg style doesn’t fit J’s character or build. Muy-Thai, tattooing, and chopper riding aren’t conducive to skinny jeans and neither is J. So he went with a traditional fit with only a slight taper at the leg and a heavier denim (14.5 Nihon Menpu). The only flash is in the pocket bags J’ chose, and the leather patch he took home to tool up himself. More on that later..
