I've always been a sort of denim enthusiast myself even when I hardly knew much about the intense fanatic following behind it. When I got into this whole internet clothing and style business several years ago, I started with finding out more about denim jeans through the rather large subculture online. There are forums and websites dedicated to the history, and entire creation process of denim down to the yarn used. There is something I think universally attractive about a pair of jeans. And then there is the wear. The process of taking a blank slate, the raw untreated denim and wearing them until they take on characteristics of your movement, body and various other daily activities that make them unique. I think The Selvedge Yard's recent article sums up the historical appeal of the whole ordeal quite nicely and includes some choice photographs of all kinds of icons wearing American made denim.
