Burton get a bit cheeky with their Japanese Denim

By admin on February 22nd, 2008

Japan is expertly made on great looms and this is why Burton’s attempt

denim’, it would be selvedge. To be fair, it probably worked. The jeans are

Adidas Originals denim by Diesel

The Adidas originals range tends to throw
up interesting collaborations from time to time and this is no different. The originals

pieces are just Diesel jeans with some Adidas branding attached.

With that said, the Adidas logo was added
in an innovative manner. Adding the three stripes to the selvedge line is
especially inspired, although it may disappoint selvedge show offs who want to
brag about the quality of their jeans. The range is available from Adidas Originals stores and prices start from £115.
