Current Obsession: Re/Dun Denim

Current Obsession: Re/Dun Denim(Source: Re/Dun)When it comes to the ever-burgeoning niche denim market, our general stance is this: as long as it makes our butt look good, we don't care if it's locally-sourced, small-batch-rinsed or personally shredded by denim demigods in a solar-powered studio. But when we heard about Re/Dun, a just-launched label specializing in re-cut vintage jeans ($221–$250), we couldn't help but fall in love with the one-of-a-kind baby blues.

The resulting styles—the boyish, slouchy “Relaxed Straight” and the more form-fitting “Skinny Straight”—look like you found them at Goodwill, but fit like you found them at Barney's. And with varying rinses and original rips and shreds, each pair boasts its own distinct character.
