The jeans are a few years old and have gotten better with age. I love the back pocket design and distressing. Most of it is from natural wear and tear which I think looks better. The chartreuse color of the Banana Republic T-shirt caught my eye right away. I painted the artwork in 1999, it has some of the colors I'm wearing. I think style and art are closely related. There is a Charles Bukowski poem that explains this better than I can.
