The Many Shades of Vintage Denim │ Perennial Vintage Supply

I sell a lot of vintage denim in my shop. In fact, I just checked my shop statistics, and I sell one piece of denim - whether it's a denim shirt, jeans, skirt, or overalls - every ten items.

Out of nearly 10,000 sales, 1200 items sold have been denim.

Obviously, denim is a chunk of my shop's inventory. There is one main reason for that: I love denim.

This last week of sourcing for my shop, I found a pile of denim to sell. Isn't this a beautiful picture? There's light wash denim, darker wash, and two different acid wash pieces. It's picturesque and makes my heart happy just looking at it.

Denim is such a part of my wardrobe staples, that I can't live without it. In turn, I feel like most people agree with this sentiment. Denim is necessary.

It's stylish, durable, and classic.

In fact, did you know that jeans began in Genoa in the 1500s and denim from "Nimes" in France in the 1600s? Then Levi Strauss went and did what everyone wanted to do in 1863: made jeans/denim available to everyone. 

There's an in-depth article about it written by Cotton Works and it's a fascinating read

Here's one of my finds this week; an acid-washed skirt. This skirt is adorable. It's an '80s mini skirt by Pantalon and will be listed in the shop this week.

If you love denim like I do, be glad you do! You've got incredible taste. And we have the Italians and the French to thank for this beautiful creation.
