View Full Version : "A faded Blue Planet" Denim documentary

1st June 2010, 19:20

Hey guys, I thought you should all watch this. I know a lot of the denim experts (and I just happen to be on a Jean Forum) know most of this stuff, but its a nice little compact documentary. The full sized one isn't out yet.

But SwissJeansFreak (a mynudies.com member) is in here! They show some pics of his musuem and how he goes about finding people on the streets with awesome jeans - he then gives him his card and asks them not to throw away their jeans.

You know I never realized it until the video, but jeans really are the one garment that has been unchanged since it's birth.
Momotaro Jeans Japan is also shortly featured and it shows hand dying!
Same with ooe yofukuten (briefly though I think).
Apparently some male-porn star innovated tight/skinny jeans for men?... lol?!

Watch! :-)

Very interesting stuff!

Most of the gay dudes I've met wear those nasty acid-bleached flare-leg jeans with the white splotches all over 'em. All the skinny jean wearing people I know (including me) are not gay so personally I think the whole "skinny jeans look gay" crowd actually has no idea what they are talking about. That being said, the porn star guy's jeans are way way way too tight.

I had thought this had come out ages ago and I'd been looking for the actual full-length documentary all this time. So the full-length hasn't been released yet, MP?

super interesting!

That train of thought that the "King of Rap" had was hard to follow, I rewound it and still .. haha good for a laugh tho.

I wear em TIGHT! ..... TIGHT

Ahh I figured out where I've seen it before, I believe they were also talking about it on sufu. Now did a bit of research and it turns out that they are still in the making regardless of how old that trailer was. I'd definitely try and pick a copy up when it comes out.

Thanks for putting this in here. I hadn't heard about it and am rather in awe after having watched it. Can't wait for the finished product, and it seems quite a bit of waiting is (will be) involved!

Nice documentary. I like how they show different aspects and point of view by different people on denim or jeans. Thanks for uploading.
