Amy Leverton’s Denim Dudes is such a great idea for a book. I’m just hoping there’s going to be a sequel – Denim Dames or Chambray Chicks, anyone? From designers to creative directors, the men profiled live and breathe denim, and obviously I’m drawn to the older Denim Dudes, the ones whose faces are as beautifully worn as the fabric they wear:
|Maurizio Donadi, co-founder of Conduit Creative Office|
|Francois Girbaud, designer|
|Olivier Grasset founder of Dr. Collectors|
One of my colleagues Phil is a serious Denim Dude (he wouldn’t look out of place on the pages of this book), so I asked him to look at my review copy and this is what he said:
can thoroughly recommend this publication which although not for
serious Denim-Heads actually covers who’s who in the street style
and vintage denim world. It provides in-depth
visuals of the clothes and interesting commentary to support the dudes
who wear them. It’s going on my bookshelf at home in-between Catcher in
the Rye and my collection of Men’s File Magazine’.
