An Earnest Cut and Sew – Styledash
I don’t know if I’d ever put standard ES denim near the phrase wabi-sabi, but maybe this is different with the customization? I wouldn’t go so far as to say wabi-sabi can only be used with raw denim, and I don’t know if you can get raw denim at the ES shop, but something about ES just doesn’t scream wabi-sabi to me.

People should watch
