Especially after the SuperBowl Snickers ad.
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.
Here is an interesting blog post on wabi-sabi. Maybe I linked to it before, I don’t remember and am too lazy to check. I got it way back from AYN blog
I don’t know if it’d be worth it for regular jeans, but I’d def send in premium denim. Hmm, though I might send in my APCs if they needed them. I love these jeans (maybe because they were my first raw pair). APCs and Nudies are what I have. And I NEVER get to wear jeans (basically it’s weekends only and not even all weekends because let’s face it, if I’m lounging at home playing PS3 or watching a movie, I’m not doing it in jeans, even jeans i need to break-in), but I’m looking at getting another pair or two (thinking Samurais or Imperials, maybe SugarCanes, less likely Pure Blues…. though AYN had some other recommendations I’ll look at as well).

Custom, computer designed denims….
Nothing new to adorn denims with random things. But this is kind of cooler than random “bedazzled” jeans.
(thanks to Kit Me Out for the pic). This company, Wahoojin, paints trad Asian designs on the denim. Maybe not as nice as perfectly worn raws, but interesting for the people who like their denim fancy. I had some problems loading the US site, but maybe you’ll have better luck: Wahoojin USA.
