Ralston Jeans by Scotch & Soda

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 speaks to the ideology of the brand that a pair of  jeans tells you to reinforce and maintain a positive mental attitude each time you slip them on. The denim from Scotch & Soda are already flawless with, or without any positive message, but this just adds that extra additional “umph” for the likability of a couture 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 highlights the essence of this couture brand.

The details within Scotch & Soda’s line of jeans is what initially attracted me to the brand. My first pair of Ralston jeans had denim 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, exhibiting a superlative aesthetic. My second pair of Ralston’s had additional details in both the front and the back of the knee area, making it a distinguished style which I was often complimented on. Same with my third pair. You can pretty much guarantee that once you own a pair of Scotch & Soda jeans, ample compliments will be headed your way.

Another significant factor when it comes to these jeans is longevity. Probably one of the most important attributes when it comes to shopping for denim is how long they will last before they look tired & worn out. I am not kidding you, the longest I held onto a pair of Scotch & Soda jeans without them wearing out has been about six or seven years, plus. 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. Taking into consideration all of the aforementioned variables, Scotch & Soda is a hard brand to pass up on when you come across them on your next denim outing.
