How many pairs of jeans do you own?

Do you have a preferred philosophy when it comes to jeans: Sexy and skinny, or loose and comfy?

Used or new?

What's your signature wash...or does it matter? "Solid denim or raw denim."

What's your favorite way to wear your jeans and with what?
"Jeans with a sports blazer jacket, gingham shirt, white pocket square, and vintage brown shoes. Keep it basic!"

If your jeans had a name or theme song, what would it be? Or do they?
"Flo Rida, 'Wild one Ft. Sia.'"

What's your favorite example of celebrity jean-wearing (i.e., Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA album cover)? 
"I like how Rihanna rocks high-waisted short denim jeans during her performances. Hot."

What do you love most about your favorite denim pieces? 
"I love when they turn into vintage."
