Since I posted the first ‘what’s on Instagram,’ I’ve saved a lot of posts. These are my favourite favourites ?
Instagram is full of great denim stuff. Here’s a selection of recent posts that I really like. It’s the blog post first in what will probably be a new series.
“I remember having bruises on my hips because I wore them daily while commuting to work on my bike, haha! 927 wears and counting. Absolutely love the pair!”
“I realized how much larger the denim community was through Instagram and I really liked being able to talk to so many different people about their experiences with different brands, fits, material, and techniques.”
“I’d say I took 98% of my shots myself and the rest by whoever’s nearby with instructions on how I want to frame it. Would you believe even my 4-year-old took some of those shots!?”
Jerry’s favourite jeans are the 1947 501XX. “It looks a lot like the 501 we have nowadays, but with a slightly baggier fit and rockabilly look.”
“I was just kind of a lurker for a while. Then I thought I’d start contributing a bit to the community. From there, it turned into a fun blog of sorts where I could track my own style evolution.”
Evan aka @greenvinedenim started posting pictures of his Levi’s 511s in 2015. But when he got his first pair of Iron Hearts, he decided to dedicate an Instagram account to his denim obsession.
Wouter Munnichs has been working with denim since the early 90s. And since 2011, he’s been blogging about it at Long John. Here he answers my Q&A.
