iconic denim photos

Recommended Posts

Here's something that's interesting to think about;

if this was really how some of the jeans were worn those days, how come all the '45 repro's we see have a diaper ass and massive hipflare combined with waistsizes that are near impossible to size down on???

doesnt look slimmer than my 45 lees(sugarcane)

and denimdesroyedmyabilitytothink, im not posting this picture as an iconic denim photo... it is in response to the quote above it.

Couldn't find the shots I wanted so I'll throw this up for now. Dorothea Lange (can't tell if she's actually wearing denim or not?):

crosby, stills, nash - LA 1970.

Dig the traintracks coming through on stills' jeans. Fresh mountaineering boots too.

Nice DDML!

Another 'group' from the 80s...non-Brits may not recognise who they are but those of you who've seen Blade 2 should take a look at the lad on the right (and no, it's not Snipes in a former life...):

And they were iconic in their own way here, especially for the ripped 501s...

I can't seem to find any , but pics of Bing Crosby rockin' his LS&CO tuxedo would be rather tpic IMO.

a decent shot of the red-tab device boutonniere would make me a little giddy also
