The valuable Jean Shop interview that’ll actually help your style is here

  • Keep it simple.
  • Dress in layers.
  • Denim and leather.

GOLDSTEIN: “You don’t have to over exaggerate or try too hard. That’s really what I’m all about. That’s what Jean Shop is all about.”

MAN’edged Mag: Some guys say that it can be challenging to walk into a store and buy something that fits their personal style. What does personal style mean to you and what other insight/advice would you give?

GOLDSTEIN: “It’s just the way I’ve been dressing. It’s an attitude. It kind of shows what you’re about. I tend to dress in a uniform, which is a jean and shirt.”

MAN’edged Mag: Did you ever feel like you had to adapt to the popular style at any given time?

GOLDSTEIN: “No. You gotta have your own personality. I do what I want to do. Wear jeans where people say don’t wear jeans and it is what it is. Know what I mean?”

MAN’edged Mag: Are there any last points or things you would like to say to give our audience an “edge” in their personal style?

GOLDSTEIN: “I would say buy a pair of raw jeans and wear the hell out of them. Don’t baby them. Wear them. Don’t wash them too often. They’ll turn into your favorite jeans. That’s what I think guys should be doing. Invest in that pair of jeans and wear them often. They’ll last for a really long time. It’ll turn into your favorite jean that cannot be duplicated and fit you like no other jean you’ve ever had.”
