With all the positives of raw denim, the feeling of perfectly worn in jeans and the authenticity of the wear marks. unique PERSONALITY!
But there is one downfall... The dreaded indigo bleed! From underwear to couches to socks nothing is safe from the loose indigo dye.
My main problem is finding the right shoes to wear with them, Stan Smiths are out. Well, pretty much anything light coloured is a no go unless you want them to turn blue too. I feel a leather derby or even an Oxford a bit too "up tight" to wear every day. Where a suede wingtip brogue has enough detailing, for it not to be too formal and could be worn every day.
These Deluxe brogues made by the Japanese shoe maker Regal is a magnificent example of style and quality. The red brick sole is a little heavier and harder than other brands. Making these brogues a lot more durable, the suede is considerably thicker too. To top things off this black pair is also bleed proof too.
