Now, I’m not saying I’ll be going to such lengths to entertain but were I to do so, I can’t possibly think of any other jeans that’d fit the bill better than these Margiela wax-coated pants. I mean, they ooze wreckless abandon and general uninhibitedness. Not quite so tight as Wild’s in the film but despite fit/material differences we’re in the same vein, here. The coral are also rather Brian Slade, don’t you think?
Oh, and they “age and disintegrate” (oki-ni‘s words) over time to give a distinctly vintage air. Not unlike the somewhat weathered Iggy himself, then.
Note: If you’re slightly perplexed as to where all these Velvet Goldmine references stemmed from, then know that Todd Haynes makes great films for rainy days. Next is Far From Heaven.
I've not watched Velvet Goldmine for an age (it's my shameless perving film- back in the days when Jonathan Rhys Meyers was unbearably lovely). Love the wax paint jeans, I can imagine the look brilliant aged an falling apart.
