A NOTE ON DENIM:
“The great thing about denim is that it is timeless yet contemporary, for daytime – and with a switch of a top or accessories – for nighttime. It has great and various price points… The key to looking great in denim is feeling great, making sure your denim fits and is comfortable. (Helpful fit hint: most jeans stretch, so when you try them on, go with the tighter pair, because it will no doubt stretch over time – a symptom of jean fabrics everywhere.) Another great trick is understanding that there is a certain bit of ‘shrinkage’ with denim, so after you wash them, dry them for fewer than 10 minutes then take out to dry – when you hang them, hang them upside down (by the hem), which will help to maintain the length of the jeans as when you first purchased them.”
TO PAIR WITH THE 'EVERYDAY' BAG: to go with your Grand Plan in Indigo Go from SCOUT, we suggest a chic interpretation of the infamous 'Canadian Tuxedo' by accenting your paired denim with a pop of one color, and we choose green! for the denim, we look to mid-price Americana like Rugby, whose Super-Skinny Faded Jean looks great with fellow American brand Levi's, and we love this Authentic Trucker Jacket above left; for the green, Kookai's Python-Print Cotton Scarf will come in handy when air-conditioning cools you off a little too much; the striped flats above right from Tapeet by Vinci are just the right ladylike touch for a mostly-denim look.
