DOUBLE DENIM

I know most people think double denim strays into socks and sandals category but is it really so bad?  I’ve been doing the look a lot recently and I think when done well, can look pretty good.  It makes sense now more than ever, with every magazine doing some feature on work wear, and what’s more blue collar than double denim?  It’s a really rugged look that’s not appropriate for all occasiona, but it definitely has it place.  I’m not sure what’s the protocol though with mixing raw/faded, light/dark.  Do you go tonal or do you mix it up?  Lately I’ve been doing a faded pair of APCs with a vintage Levis shirt, both similar in color.  I’m just not a fan of anything Western-ish.  How do you feel about double denim?  What about triple and throwing in a jacket?  Too much of a good thing?

    Who makes a nice denim shirt though?

    I’ve really been into a few chambray shirts that are out right now, but haven’t seen much as far as denim button-ups. Suggestions?

    Oh, and a light shirt with dark denim (similar to the combo in the picture) is my preferred formula.

    I guess you could go with one of the Japanese ones from Selfedge, but I’m not sure how comfortable a raw denim shirt would be. I’d be curious to know of some other options too, but I’m partial to Levis. You can’t get more classic than that. Check vintage shops for them because I’m not even sure if they still make them.

    3 pieces can be done but your hat boots and belt must be able to break up the blues while continuing to tie them together. I say keep it to “two”. If you are looking for a good denim or chambray shirts just go to RRL.
