Okay, lets talk about the "bad ass-ery" of the denim jacket. See, I first developed this obsession when I rekindled my love with The Strokes and watched the music video for "Someday". It's full of "behind the scenes" footage (hanging out in a bar, drinking and smoking- activities you would expect rock stars like The Strokes to participate in), as well as an episode of Family Feud with some pretty hilarious dialogue. ALSO, there was a lot of denim jacket-wearing going on. (By Julian Casablancas & Nick Valensi, specifically.) Now, Julian Casablancas is the definition of a rock star to me. He looks like he never gives a damn, has amazing musical talent, a perfect shaggy haircut, and great personal style. So why would we not want to be like him? He always looks careless and confident: words I now associate with the denim jacket.
