As word-association goes, “the blues” and “authenticity” tend to come up a lot in the same conversations. Maybe that’s got something to do with why we take another “blue” thing, denim, so freakin’ seriously. And no one takes denim more seriously than New York’s 3x1– the near-obsessive all-inclusive denim shop has recently partnered with Cool Hunting to create what is, without a doubt, the perfect summer popover. It comes in a wide array of colorways, but we prefer this super-saturated, rare Japanese blue selvedge for a kind of Miles-Davis-Off-Duty type look. Roll up the sleeves, stick your cigarettes in the selvedge-lined chest pocket, and you’re bound to feel pretty good. But, y'know, not too too good. Gotta keep your authentic blues. Get it here.
