Started by a couple of guys looking to improve on the experience of shopping for jeans, Deep Ellum Denim brings the world's best pairs into one spot. We have immense respect for their ability to hunt down high quality, unique brands and their commitment to delivering an experience you won't find anywhere else. That's why we were excited that they said yes to hosting one of our very own weekly emails. Check out this iconic brand's top picks for this week in a special edition of the Saturday Six.
READ | SHOE DOG
Sports. Business. Japanese culture. Risk taking. Entrepreneurship. What more could you ask for in a book? Shoe Dog is incredible story and history of how Phil Knight grew Nike into the brand it is today.
WEAR | MOMOTARO 12 OUNCE JAPANESE DENIM | AVAILABLE AT DEEP ELLUM DENIM
The holy grail of Japanese Denim in a 12 ounce Texas summer friendly weight. Available in two fits - the tight taper (for slimmer guys) and the high taper (for guys who need a bit more room in the thighs and legs).
DRINK | DAYTIME OLD FASHIONED
On the lighter side of the traditional, and just in time for the Texas heat. Texas bourbon, (Balcones is our choice and they just came out with a Shiner Bock version - highly recommended), Bitters, a nice splash of Topo Chico (not too much), and a fresh orange on ice.
WATCH | DEION'S DOUBLE PLAY
You may have expected us to say The Last Dance (which we love), but we wanted to highlight another incredible story in sports, and keep it closer to home with a lot of style. Prime Time, Deion Sanders, once played an NFL game and played a World Series baseball game in consecutive days. These are the trials, tribulations, and antics that go along with one of the greatest athletes in the history of modern day sports, pushing the limits of what can be done.
LISTEN | SAM COOKE AT THE HARLEM SQUARE CLUB
There’s something about this live show that will have you wanting to keep putting it back on. The only way to listen to it is straight through. You’ll have live commentary and dialogue in between tracks which creates something pretty magical. Besides feeling like you’re right there in the crowd, he also plays the tracks you know and a few you might not. Grab a drink or a beer, sit back and enjoy.
SHOP | JACK MASON WATCHES
Located in the heart of Deep Ellum and right down the street from our denim shop is Jack Mason Watches. These guys design and craft our favorite line of watches, from racing to diver. We find that not only do they have a great range of styles, they also put an incredible amount of detail into their work. A watch that will pair great with any solid pair of denim.
