After a year of searching for the perfect pair of coated denim, I finally found them in these Citizens of Humanity Racer Leatherette Jeans. Wading through a slew of too thin, too high-waisted, too saggy, too baggy, these finally fit the bill. Soft but thick denim, snug fit, low rise, and real working front pockets which so many other pairs lacked. After getting them hemmed and slimming the ankle back to a snug fit, I’m really happy with how they turned out. I’m super tempted to get them in the burgundy as well. It’s such a luxe take on denim, which I think pairs quite nicely with the luxe take on a t-shirt, the tweed tee!
I’ve always loved hats but have a hard time finding ones that look decent on me. This style is great because it’s a more casual take on a fedora, so it doesn’t feel too styled or forced, and I love the small brim that doesn’t overwhelm. It’s soft and floppy, so it’s traveled on planes with me and been squished under the seat, only to spring right back to life when I need it to cover my terrible travel-hair. And I’m pretty sure I don’t look like a doofus in it, so that’s a plus. It also comes in olive.
