Well-loved jeans

Visited former CBC host, Tetsuro Shigematsu, on January 2.

I scored him a pair of comp jeans in October from Banana Republic as we were part of a UBC Almuni event.

He loves them - Heritage Straight with an Antique Wash, I believe. Thing is he's wearing them to death. So he had me patch a hole while I was there.

To find material we had to sacrifice another pair of well-worns, GAP 1969s.

Now, all you premium-selvedge-Italian-Japanese-spun-by-organic-mutated-orphan types might scoff. But there's no doubt these pants took on some personality.

So much so I had to photodocument it and share it with you.
