Thanks to Amsterdams Blauw, the denim line of Scotch & Soda, I got the chance to delve into the roots of denim culture. In the Amsterdams Blauw boutique in Antwerp I recieved the exclusive ‘Sasuga’ pants, from wich they only produced 222 original copies. I am in the possesion of No. 25. An expert explained that this the ‘crème de la crème’ of denim. Amsterdams Blauw studies the roots of denim and brings back authentic weaving and dyeing techniques. The expert explained that a this unique jeans requires special attention. For example, I can never wash these pants. If they are dirty, I should simply put them in the freezer for a night to kill the bacteria. As a non-expert, I am struck by how good the fit and how beautiful the finish of these jeans is. The red detail when you turn the jeans, the copper coin I have to keep in my pocket so that it would fade into the jeans… Every single one of these details make it a unique denim. The most important thing about this blue jean is that they become even more beautiful the more you wear them. I’m already hooked and can not wait to see how these jeans will evolve over the years.
