A few weeks ago I was traveling thru southern California and stopped at the Levis store in Malibu. I would admit as much as I love bikes and riding dusty trails in southern Utah, I love denim just as much. Not just any denim, but denim that’s made one pair at a time with the care and love that goes into anything good.
While there I gawked at every pair of vintage denim they had…ahhhh the sweet history of the American legend! My dear wife and beloved business partner would probably have had me sleeping on the couch for weeks when I came home if I bought a few pairs, so I refrained, but I did see a pair of selvage chino’s that I put on my Christmas list!
After talking to the manager for a few hours and he gave me the complete history of the vintage line, he handed me a small bottle of this soap. I gave him that weird look that men give men when handed soap. I have to be honest, no man has ever handed me soap! It was a bit weird and I quickly left, but not without my notes for what I was putting on my Christmas list!
Its been a few weeks since I’ve had the soap in hand and I’m going to admit, it’s the greatest stuff I’ve ever used. Its total ‘man’. Smells like a man should smell, the outside, the woods, the trees, the perma-smell from a wind scorched face, flannel, the mountain air…need I go on?
here is the link to Juniper Ridge…you should buy some…yes its all that in a bottle of soap.
