“My career so intelligent, unique physique/then with mathematics, not democratic” (O.D.B.)





Gone are the days when denim was used by coal miners, nowadays everybody and their cousins have denims in their range of products. Companies that only produce jeans are a thing of the past. Your favourite skate company has a denim line and so is doing your favourite kicks company, not to mention that a bird told us that in the future even a well known top of the line cap company will have its trousers made of denim fabric. It gets really complicated in a sense that you, the consumer take the fun part of it and bring home what the market offers you. One day you can get this, the other day that but the shelves are full of products and now it’s mandatory to welcome your new friend: here comes confusion. The market is flooded and after some fun, you find yourself lost in a sea of products where the choice is endless. I don’t have a solution for you, neither a direction to follow. What’s the real advantage of this? You can pick up what you like. What I like in general are dark denims. Raw. Not washed. Those that leave blue stains on your hands. It’s been a pleasure to know from The Maxiemillion homie, Luca I, that Silverstar, the company of which he takes care of international sales, is doing good with all this MMA madness and beyond. What started as a small casting company out of San Clemente, rapidly evolved in a clothing company whose sponsored MMA fighters even got luv from OC skate wonderboy Ryan Sheckler. This is Rollins raw, their boot cut denim, something that I was pretty happy to inspect. Not your overpriced Japan piece, the interior has a loud and clear “made in China” printed on it. Not that this means anything: China has several standards of production and I definately gotta say that this one is brilliant and up to date. The stitched logo is true to the classic tattoo style of this “lifestyle company”. Let’s not forget that Luke Burrett, the founder and owner, has ink all over his body. Back to the denim, its details are proper. What definately gets a thumb up is this little oblique fifth pocket, really handy and innovative. Buttons, rivets and stitchings are up to the expectations: lean and mean! This Star seems to shine bright and I wish them a long night full of light…
