German department store Ludwig Beck is probably comparable with America’s Bloomingdale’s. They have their own denim label, called Deyk, and when I was browsing through their huge collection of amazing jeans, I found two really outstanding ones – matte gold coated and metallic corduroy. The golds weren’t too gold and the metallics weren’t too metallic – they were both just right. The metallic corduroys were particularly interesting for giving the jeans a kind of worn-in look, the metallic coat was actually broken in places so that the dark colored cord material showed through. Very authentic looking.
