A Trip Down East Carson

2222 East Carson Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15203

While visiting a friend last weekend at Duquesne University, I had the pleasure of meeting Scotty over at Pittsburgh Jeans Company where you can find the right pair of jeans no matter your size, cut, or style.  They even had a pair of Levi's on display...waist size 60!  Since the early 1900's, the Scott family and this denim destination, has been providing Pittsburgh with the finest jeans they can find from around the world.  From LA to Italy and all the way to Japan, they're willing to travel anywhere to seek out the best products possible.

What was best about the opportunity to visit Scotty and his shop was gaining some inspiration and ideas that can be used during the creation of our BLEUDENIM store in Paris.  Between the second story bar, abundance of jean options, and a passion for denim; we know that BLEUDENIM and the Pittsburgh Jeans Company will have quite a bit in common.

A Perfect Day For Denim

Saut Hermès au Grand Palais Paris

This is a great example of denim done well...with the right amount of detail mixed in.  While the jeans are a bit baggy they seem to fit this guy just the way he likes them.  Even with denim on top, this look can't be thrown in the same category with all of those other Canadian tuxedo chumps...with his Italian originality this look inspires us to feel comfortable in the jeans we're in.

You might be wondering what details I'm talking about...first there's that chunky scarf and the over-sized flower that can't be missed.  More noteworthy is the roll he adds at the bottom of his jeans that falls over his shoes with style.  And while the abundance of jeans might not seem like a "detail", his eye for picking out denim that works well together is spot on.
