Hey Everyone! My name is Tommy and I am very excited to be joining the Denimology family. I will be writing to you all from Providence, RI, where I am a full time student and hold a full time job. The weather has been increasingly getting nicer recently which means I can leave my house more often to do my favorite activities; thrift store shopping and reading in the park. Like many people, I try to avoid the cold and staying in my bed to read is a warm alternative during the winter.
When I received my first pair of jeans to review, which were Levi’s: Made & Crafted Tack Slim in Selvedge Rigid, I was happy for a few reasons. Levi’s has always been one of my favorite denim companies because they are classic, just enough detailing on the back pockets, always great quality and they were the original jean. I also have a huge obsession with selvedge denim AND rigid denim, so you can imagine my excitement. The fit of the jeans is slim, however I sized down one in the waist so they would fit me like a skinny jean. If small details interest you then these are definitely the jeans for you. On the back pockets you’ll notice there are no arches, which are a Levi’s trademark, they are actually on the inside of the pockets, so you can only see them in the correct lighting. Also the rivets are different than their other jeans, they almost look to be reversed. One of the main reasons I really like selvedge rigid denim is because I cuff my jeans a lot, especially during the Spring and Summer when I can get away with not wearing socks without looking crazy. The contrast of the dark denim and the lighter denim on the inside of the jean always catches my eye.
Spring is definitely on its way and it has been very nice out lately… except the day I was taking pictures, it actually started snowing while I was being photographed. These jeans go really well all the outfits I have planned for Spring so far, especially this one. The army green cadet jacket looks great against the dark denim. The blue chambray shoes I am wearing in the pictures are my favorite pair I own right now and stand out against the jeans. Blue shoes are a huge trend this season and easily go with any outfit you put together.
Levi’s are worn by everyone from your neighbor to celebrities, they have been around for over 100 years and if they keep making jeans like this they are sure to be around for 100 years more.
The Levi’s: Made & Crafted Tack Slim in Selvedge Rigid are available on RevolveClothing for $198.
