Closeup: Summer Denim
"I’ve had a real interest in organically faded denim over the past few months — I mean the really beat-up type stuff. Rips, stains, tears, the works. When I heard about this collaboration I hit eBay hard. It took me a few days, but I eventually found the most beautiful vintage ’80s Levi’s 550s. A rapid rush to the ‘Buy it Now’ button and a quick trip to the tailor left me with the product I have today. I do have to be a bit more gentle on them then I would a new pair, but I’m having a hard time taking them off." — Dillon Burke, Thread and Salt
