This past winter I got the chance to meet up with the Gap team and the amazing MickKeus to create some vintage denim magic. Naturally, I love vintage denim and it’s always been my go to choice for jeans, but I had no idea how much of a game charger it would be to have them tailored to my body and personally customized until now.
When I met up with the team, I went through a ton of vintage Gap jeans to find my perfect ones. Once I tried them on, MickKeus then marked them throughout for altercations. I’ve always fooled around with distressing my own jeans, but this was something I’ve never had done. Once I got the final product in the mail from them, I was in shock. They fit to every curve of my body perfectly. You can even see the difference in fit from the first photo (altered) to the one right above with the patch. Crazy right?!
