This is a video of my jeans.
Or in fact, it’s a video of my denim jacket.
This is the Nudie Jeans Conny Jacket, Dry Denim and it’s 8 years old.
I’ve been wearing it a lot, but not for 8 years in a row.
It has been in my closet more than on my body in the last 3 years.
It’s washed twice in the last 2 months.
I am really excited about the honeycombs on the arms, and the folding lines on the end of the sleeves.
Because the sleeves were a little bit too long, I folded the end in half, which gave it a tighter wrist and now some amazing fades.
As you can see the elbows have faded really smooth, and the wrists have really sharp lines in the fabric.
Lately I rediscovered it, when I visited the Amsterdam Denim Days fair in Amsterdam.
At the Kings Of Indigo stand, they ironed on free patches.
That’s where I gave back life to my jacket.
Online there are many stores where you can find patches like these.
I ironed them on, but I stitched them too, because the were letting go of the fabric.
Before I washed this jacket for the first time, I sewed on the patches, wore it a couple of extra weeks, and than washed it, so the jacket as well as the patches have a ‘washed’ look.
The blue water gave the patches a vintage look as well.
I really love the color blue it has now.
It used to be very dark and stiff, but now it ltterally fits like a glove.
It feels like it’s tailormade.
One crazy ass jacket, telling my story, expressing my lifestyle.
Looking at it makes me say:
