The B side of a record is where the deep cuts live—the complex, idiosyncratic songs that true connoisseurs appreciate most.
In that same spirit, B Sides celebrates the beauty of imperfection: Jeans that, like the sleeper song on a classic rock album, have an interesting story to tell.
The story of B Sides begins with longtime friends and fashion industry veterans Claire Lampert and Stacy Daily, who began collecting antique denim as founders of the curated-vintage boutique Where I Was From. Their obsession has taken them from Colorado, where they work with a local cowboy who specializes in unearthing rare specimens, to industrial rag houses, where they pick through massive palettes of old garments in search of that perfectly imperfect pair. Their collection begat B Sides’s vintage patchworked styles—graphic jeans that spliced different washes and colors together long before the current craze for reworked denim.
