Brand Spotlight: Scotch & Soda

Did you ever wish that your clothing items can speak to you?  Tell you to have a great day while you are getting dressed? We all have had certain clothing items that have “spoken to us,”  but of course we only say so in a figurative sense (hopefully). Well, if you have a pair of jeans from Scotch & Soda, you will be in luck as this Amsterdam based clothing brand communicates messages to all shoppers who are dressed in them! Yes, it is true! These items of clothing literally do convey messages from within, reinforcing a positive tone and giving you that additional pick me up at the start of your day.

 

Here is a message from a pair of my Ralston Scotch & Soda jeans above. See?! I was NOT joking! Every time I slide these jeans on and begin to button these jeans up, I am reminded that “Today Is A Very Good Day.” When I purchased and wore my first pair of Ralston Scotch & Soda jeans, I was touched in a cute way. It’s fun that a decent pair of  jeans that (at the time, were my favorite pair), tells you to reinforce and maintain a positive mental attitude for each day. It creates a warm and memorable action each time you put them on. The denim from Scotch & Soda are already flawless with, or without any positive message, but this just adds that extra umph for the likability of a high-end designer jean brand.

In addition to it’s positive reinforcements, Scotch & Soda also adds that additional layer of detail both inside and outside of the denim. Exquisite patchwork can be found within the inside pockets, along with detailed writing that shows that you own a high-quality article of clothing within your wardrobe. I don’t know about you, but when a designer takes it to that next level by providing that extra detail work, adding even the most minute details, it reassures me and my wallet that I have paid for a high-quality article of clothing and that it was money well spent.

The details within Scotch & Soda’s line of jeans is what initially attracted me to the brand, My first pair of Ralston jeans had ruffles in the back of the knee area, so when looked at from the back, the ruffles tightly comforted to the back of my knee is what would stand out. My second pair of Ralston’s had additional details in both the front and the back of the knee area, making it an outstanding style of jean which I was often complimented on. Same with my third pair. You can pretty much guarantee that if you own a pair of Scotch & Soda jeans, you will have ample compliments headed your way.

Another REALLY REALLY important factor when it comes to these jeans is the longevity of color. Probably one of the most important attributes when it comes to jean shopping is how long they will last before they look worn out. I am not kidding you, the longest I have had a pair of Scotch & Soda jeans without them wearing out has been about six or seven years. The pair of jeans you see in the pictures above is about six years old, and yet looks like it is mayyybe one or two years old. When taking into consideration all of these variables for jean shopping, Scotch & Soda is a hard brand to pass up when on the lookout for your next pair of jeans.
