Acne Jeans X Fantastic Man

8 03 2008

Jonny Johansson, founder of ACNE, invited mens fashion mag Fantastic Man’s two editors, Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom, to create a special product, ‘The Gentlemans’ Jeans’.

The Gentleman’s Jeans is a pair of blue jeans designed to perfectly integrate with formal attire. It is created for a mature man of work and leisure – a novel approach for a garment that has, since the 1950s, been associated with youth, rebellion and liberation.

Silhouette and attention to details, makes The Gentleman’s Jeans join the white shirt, dress shoes, dinner jacket and tie in a harmonious way, rather than being the garment that breaks it up. A slightly higher waist, an eye catching gold pocket button and a gently tapered leg that is generous around the thigh creates a very becoming crisp and ironed look – nothing less than a small revolution in the history of jeans.

The Gentleman’s Jeans is in a limited quantities and is available at Colette in Paris now and by mid March at Acne Studio in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, New York and on Acne online shop. See the jeans after the jump…
