Today on the Journal we profile some of the HUB team and ask them about their jeans stories. We all have that one pair of jeans or jacket that we absolutely love. We wear them over and over again until there are holes in the knees, buttons missing and a snapped belt loop from years of wiggling encouragingly into them. Somehow they still look better now then the day you bought them. Whether a solid investment, coveted, a hand-me-down or a magpie find - they have a story, rejig a memory. We hold on to them. Live in them. Vow to never chuck them out.
“I found these Kenzo beauties in a local shop called Pictures and Light a few years back. They have a high waist and an embroidered flower on the left pocket. The zip's broken but I won't give them up. They've survived the 80's - there's life in them yet!”
“These Eve jeans by Wood Wood are the best. They are mid rise, cropped to the ankle and cut from a soft washed denim. They kind of resemble an old pair of 90's Levi's and I absolutely love them. For me, it's all about Eve!"
“I bought this little jacket from a random vintage pop up on Portobello market years ago. In the summer I wear it to death, over dresses or I go double denim with some jeans. The detail on the pockets are my favourite thing about them."
"I'm wearing the Meadow jeans by Dr. Denim. They are cropped with a frayed hem and slight kick flare. Today I have paired them with the Hudson Metta suede heel but they look really great with just a pair of Converse or Novesta."
“These Han jeans are from HUB from a couple of years back - they have such a lovely weight and fit, I couldn't resist them. I wear them with a simple grey or white t-shirt from ARMORLUX and a pair of Novesta high tops. They are fading out and the denim is softening up nicely. The more I wear them the better they look.”
"These Wes Jeans by Wood Wood are great. Wood Wood only recently started doing a denim line but I'm very happy they did. The fit and quality is on point. I wear them with trainers mostly, like these Veja ones."
