After talking briefly about Bleu de Paname previously and getting a feel for the brand their gear is now on sale over at Tres Bien Shop. The standout for me has to be the Pantalon Carotte 13 oz denim. What sets this denim apart from the droves of denim already being forced on you via the interwebs are the oxford cloth contrast pockets. I realize this is a little overstated as far as classic, no frills denim is concerned, but I think cool details like contrast pockets inject a much needed sense of humor into the oh so nerdy and orthodox world of denimheads. However, unlike the model in the Tres Bien product shot, I would not wear these with the Bleu de Paname oxford cut from the same exact cloth (pattern matching could be a bitch on that one, not to mention you'd look like your assless chaps, I mean, jeans had strategic cutouts). Imagine these jeans with a white tee. That's more of the look I'm thinking of. When one part of your kit is a little "out there" like these jeans it would be advantageous for you to do your best to keep the rest under wraps so to speak. Honestly, part of me is really digging these because I know they are going to force some forum goers to think outside of the box, but I feel okay with that knowing Bleu de Paname takes their craft extremely seriously and is producing high quality gear.
