This is me giving you full permission to check out my boyfriend’s backside. That’s how much I love you. Sure, it’s a really nice tush, but the jeans make them look that much better.
Meet C.’s backside in the DRT Marcus Slim Straight in Triton. You’ve probably heard of DRT before – they’re the male counterpart to Dish, one of my new favorites – and the amazing folks at Dish sent C. a pair when they sent me the Dish Paris Savona jeans. C. had to do a little hemming on his (and, you know, get me a new car), so his post has been delayed. But it’s definitely worth the wait!
Here’s a little bit about DRT:
The DRT on Heritage – A bit organic (in philosophy), a bit rock (in influences), and a bit down-to-earth (in outlook), “DRT” adheres to its core values of unpretentious simplicity and durability. Producing jeans since 1978, we’ve known that a quality product that will last longer will not have to be replaced so quickly. So digging deep to be as eco-sensitive as we can, we strive to make premium jeans at attainable prices that will last a lifetime.
The DRT on Authenticity – Using simple classic indigo ringspun denim and complex finishes, distressing just enough to soften and give character, we leave most of the aging process to normal individualized usage by the wearer. As such, our jeans stay durable and genuine, while becoming uniquely your own – naturally! All “DRT” denims, true to their humble roots, are inspired by long-term trends rather than fleeting fads.
What’s there not to love about these jeans? The price is right (at about $118), the quality is impressive (and who doesn’t love organic denim?!?) and the clean rinse (with a slight copper tint to keep them unique) is perfect for guys who want to keep their look easy, yet stylish.
They take a little bit more breaking in than C.’s Paper Denim and Cloth, but they’ll also last longer. His thoughts: first thing he said was that he loved the zipper fly (ah, a man of many thoughts. He sure does hate button fly jeans though), they have just enough stretch to fit comfortably and they’re soft but durable. There was a bit of frustration with the necessary hemming (these jeans run a 35″ inseam), but they fit him quite well in a size 31.
… and now you know why I write the blog instead of him.
It’s a bit of a challenge to get your hands on a pair of DRT jeans here in the US. If you’d like to see them, ask your local boutique to start carrying DRT (and Dish!).
