    Looking to start a new thread with posts related to wheat / white denim. I think members would particularly enjoy seeing examples, past and present, of wheat denim incorporated in a Trad ensemble.

    To start, here is an Ivy League image:

    I'm looking forward to seeing other examples.

    Wheat jeans have been popular in the West for at least fifty years. I was not aware of the earlier Ivy associations. I have five pairs that I still wear in rotation with different tops, especially Pendletons and flannels.

    This weekend I was wearing old Mervyn's white/tan jeans, they still fit.

    Nick Hilton wrote about wheat jeans hitting the East Coast in the early 60s -- a way of getting back at Trad Dad. :)

    Where do you guys buy your Levi's? The numbers are confusing, so Amazon seems like not the best option.
