Denver, CO, a city not looked to for its fashion very often, can sometimes surprise you. Known mostly for our mountains and various outdoor offerings, the Mile High City doesn’t often come up in casual global conversation. “I enjoy jetsetting all over the world to check out gallery openings and clothing line debuts. My favorite places? Gosh, I would have to say Paris, Moscow, Milan, Tokyo, NYC, LA, and, of course, Denver.” It just doesn’t sound right. And quite frankly, I like it that way. Yeah, we’ll be over here, all unassuming-like, if you need us. Of course, this all could change if that one spark falls into the gasoline, igniting an explosion from the Rocky Mountain Region.
Sure, there have been breaks in music and fashion from this fair town (Devotchka, 3Oh!3, The Fray *shudder*, among PLENTY more). We can now add locals, ELC Clothing to the list of awesomeness. Just when I was thinking, “I could really go for a new chambray button-up,” my new friend points me to these guys. Their lookbook is worth, well, a look. And if the rest of the world still wants to believe that everyone in Colorado rides horses to work, they will have to know we do so in style.
