Well done everyone who guess it is a lead on . . . .
What they had found – abet in a conventional blue denim – was a pair of jeans with this distinctive low curved pocket shape; positioning of belt loops; location of rivets; and visible waist button.
The jeans are by G-Star, sometimes known as G-Star RAW.
G-Star RAW Blade Jeans.
Some further digging around turned them up in black as well as blue.
Here are a few pictures to compare the screen-worn trousers to a standard pair of the G-Star Raw Blade Jeans
It’s also possible to see where the G-Star RAW logo has been obscured (see left), in a similar way to Tennant’s Converse All Star sneakers had the ankle roundels painted out.
I have found two good places to order these jeans from: one in the UK, the other in the US. Both stock the jeans in Crushed Black, which as I will come to isn’t quite the right fabric yet.
UK - Very.co.uk
I can highly recommend their delivery service. I placed my order at 6.30pm on Tuesday, and they arrived at 1.40pm on Wednesday - LESS than 24 hours later!
US - Zappos.com
The plain blue denim versions can be ordered in the US through Amazon.com.
The G-Star website stocks jeans using the fabric – known as Spark Denim – but not in the Blade Jeans style.
This is where I throw it open to you to see if you can find them in the right fabric – and in stock!
I’ll be back real soon with some photos of the jeans I bought and some further comparisons to the screen-worn version.
Now I have a pair, I can also confirm the unusually low back pockets and back waist strap are all present on the pair I bought.
More to follow.
