Give your dark denim and beat-up jeans a day off by trying a pair in washed, sandy shades like these tan selvedge jeans from J.Crew. We happened upon them recently in the store and immediately appreciated the unique texture and subtle retro wash. A classic five-pocket style spun on narrow shuttle looms from slubby selvedge denim at one of Japan's oldest and most renowned mills, each pair is specially rinsed for a soft, broken-in look and feel. Old school details include a green stitched selvedge line, button fly and slightly oversized, unadorned back pockets. Lightweight without being flimsy, the cut is a narrow, straight fit—meaning they should skim your legs, but not constrict your movement. And best of all, you won't be left with blue dye on you legs when that inevitable mid-summer heat wave rolls around a few months from now.
