After months of digging through the dregs of the denim bar, we’ve unearthed an exciting new specimen.
The back label, Koral, clued us into its origin. According to local lore, famed denim pioneer Peter Koral (7 for All Mankind) designed a covetable line with his son, David. We are reasonably confident the flawlessly cut pair of jeans hails from that collection.
While the fabric appears aged, carbon dating reveals it’s actually new. The lab posits that it’s been expertly faded to achieve an effortless, lived-in look.
Eureka! We’ve discovered several more silhouettes (skinny, cigarette, high waisted) and washes (indigo, black).
Finishing details (whiskers, sanding) only further confirm our hypothesis: It’s the dawning of the Jean-rassic Age.
