Archetypal in-the-making.

As you can see from the top photograph, when you pair some 34x34 loose fit jeans, light red socks and tan sheuxsss, the end result can be quite intimidating. Jeans and sheuxsss wearers do this all the time; they get all dressed up without giving a solitary toss about any other trouser + footwear combos they might encounter throughout the day. They simply do not think.

Look at how scared those shiny toe flat shoes look. The right hand one has turned itself inwards to protect the weaker, younger sibling from the aggressive jeans and sheuxsss combo sat diagonally opposite. I bet they were absolutely petrified. Outrageous J&S posturing.

Jeans and Sheuxsss turning the heat up once again on this rather pleasant Thursday afternoon. 

You do not see combos like this very often. In fact, I’ve only ever seen one or two as the type of person normally wearing Bench jeans would never even consider wearing smart sheuxsss alongside them.

Maybe he ran out of clean clobber and it was a last minute thing? We’ll never know….

Dog Crew.

Jeans and Sheuxsss is serving up a real treat for you today, and comes courtesy of one of my regular contributors; he helped me spawn the J&S movement two years ago and currently owns a 29% shareholder stake in some gas and oil reserves we purchased when our sister corporation, Sheuxsss and Jeansy, was sold to a well-known American multinational last month. On top of that, the AP offered him their esteemed Employment for Life contract but he declined the offer because he felt there was more value in cataloguing jeans and sheuxsss. I take my hat off to him and I hope you will too.

Now then, we’ve never featured a dog on Jeans and Sheuxsss, and from what the photographs suggest it’s a headless dog, but I have been told that’s not the case. I expect what happened here is that the dog had received intelligence about this website, didn’t want to be photographed, and therefore stood behind his owner’s leg. Who knows, and quite frankly who bloody cares. A major jeans and sheuxsss violation was taking place inside a public space and that is all we need to concern ourselves with.

Let’s dissect the combo and look at how it’s been configured (much like how a web server is configured only completely different because it has absolutely nothing in common with computing). The jeans are magnificent: comfortable, practical and worn in around the edges. They’ve been offset by a killer pair of black penny loafers and look nothing short of resplendent when coupled with the long towering tunnels of denim seated above them. It’s a combo that says to me, “this morning I was involved in some DIY and this afternoon I’ll be staring at the tiles below a urinal.”

Crime Scene Sheux.

I know, it’s tragic. Let’s all take a moment to think about the poor pair of jeans that was left behind when the assailant ran away from the law enforcement officers and was forced to abandon his right sheux.

Saddened is what I am. Truly saddened.

** Faded Stonewash + Black Leather Sheux TEST PRESS **

This combo requires little in the way of an introduction as we all know the type of jeans and sheux wearer being exhibited here. They’re known for three things:

1) Liking guitar-based music
2) Shopping in Millets (for supplementary clothing items)
3) Blending into crowds easily

They’re also known for turning up in all sorts of random locations wearing jeans and sheuxsss and then getting caught for it. As Neil McCauley in Heat said: “I will not hesitate. Not for a second [to photograph your combo and put it on my website].”

Over & out.

A rare specimen indeed.

Cream frayed jean and tan coloured slip on sheux combo.

'Nuff said.

JIANSU Crew in full effect.

Today I’m posting up some absolutely tearing J&S action from Vietnam, SE Asia.

This combo was photographed in what looks to be an airport lounge. I’ve deduced this, with the help of the Jeans & Sheuxsss Laboratory, by comparing patterned carpet samples from several million properties throughout the region. Our findings confirmed the people using this particular lounge later ended up in no fewer than 239 unique destinations, and so therefore the probability of the lab results being correct is very high. I can’t tell you (for security reasons) exactly how high, but trust me, it’s high.

Regarding the jeans and sheuxsss themselves, well, I haven’t ever posted this particular combo before. It’s not really something you see in the western hemisphere as the composite parts aren’t sold in our shops. Look at the jeans! Read what the embroidery on the back pocket says: “JIANSU”. What does it mean? I’ve been wondering that myself and am also curious about the font being used as it’s unfamiliar to my eye. And the sheuxsss, aren’t they magnificent. Classic post-cowboy era Velcro stock with absolutely no redeemable features whatsoever, expect for being comfortable. I’d wager they’re extremely comfortable when worn in tandem with JIANSU jeans.

She drives me crazy,
Uh uh,
Like no-one else,
Uh uh,
She drives me crazy,
And I can’t help myself,
Uh uh.

I’m afraid you’re kidding yourself if you think I’m giving away 50p to the first person who can tell me where those lyrics are from. We all know they were written by the masterful Roland Gift and featured on his band’s brilliant second album The Raw and the Cooked. I chose these lyrics as an introduction to this afternoon’s post for no reason other than my hope in conveying to the world how I feel about jeans and sheuxsss. In fact, I feel so strongly about them I have changed Roland’s lyrics around a bit and present you with my own version:

They drives me crazy,
Uh uh,
The jeans and sheux,
Uh uh,
They drives me crazy,
And I can’t help myself,
Uh uh.

To say I’m happy with the result would be an understatement.

Something I’m also very happy about is a new dubplate I received over the weekend. This dubplate is currently doing serious damage in all the pubs and student unions across West Yorkshire. It’s a stonewashed loose-fit jean with square toe sheux combo and is an absolute riddim! You just know the selector wearing this combo is seriously owning all other J&S wearers throughout the county. I would love to find out where this gangster gets his clobber from.

Here at Jeans and Sheuxsss, no ten days are ever the same. For example, between Friday 14 and Sunday 23 February this year, I ate the following for lunch:

14/02 – scrambled eggs on toast plus two pints of Guiness.
15/02 – Brie, Parmesan, Camembert, Port Salut, Cheddar, Feta, Wensleydale and Stilton baguette with salad cream, salt and pepper. 
16/02 – scrambled eggs on toast and a glass of water.
17/02 – roast lamb with poached eggs, French fries and a bottle of fizz.
18/02 – scrambled eggs on toast plus four glasses of elderflower juice.
19/02 – seven fried eggs on toast.
20/02 – luncheon meat salad and two pints of Lucozade Sport.
21/02 – chicken, turkey, mutton, liver and okra soup with a glass of milk.
22/02 – pate and 750g of Jacob’s Cream Crackers.
23/02 – Swordfish followed by fresh oysters and 3 Raisin & Biscuit Yorkie bars. And a glass of water. 

It wasn’t easy recollecting that, but it does bring me on nicely to an email I received from China a fortnight ago:

=========================================================Dear Sir/Madam,
     Very glad to send email to you, I’m Jim. I have learned your company from internet which shows you are interest in purchasing garment.
     First I’d like to introduce our company, which is one of the garment manufacturers in China, mainly produce jacket, pants, skirts, kids jeans garment. We would like to supply good quality products and satisfy every customer’s needs. We approach you today in the hope of establishing long business relations with you and expect, by our joint effects, to enlarge our business scope. It will be great pleasure to receive your inquiries for any of the items against which we will send you our competitive price with high quality.
Your prompt reply will be highly appreciated
Thanks & best regards
Yours faithfully,  
Jim
=========================================================

After reading this email it struck me there are probably 150,000,000 J&S wearers in China. I have therefore decided to move my offices and outsource all Jeans and Sheuxsss call centres to several districts throughout the mountainous regions of Xinjiang, Shandong and Chongqing. Now that I’ve mentioned my future business plans I can finally talk about today’s combo. 

Today’s combo is rather exquisite. Black jeans and faux leather black sheuxsss with dust effect sheen. The sheuxsss were probably bought in either Shoe Zone or [redacted] and because they don’t have any laces can be slipped on easily. This means they erode quite fast which in turn creates a naturally distressed look. Please note: I use distressed in the honest sense of the word and will not be affiliated with companies producing ‘distressed look jeans’ for exorbitantly high profit margins. Manz knows I’m not down with that type of foolishness. Getme.

Get Tubey.

You are a lucky lucky lucky bunch of people indeed.

You are lucky lucky lucky because this is the first time on jeansandsheux a Mark II Prototype Archetypal has been posted. A ‘archetypal-in-the-making’ is not an easy thing to spot but through sheer diligence I managed it.

Furthermore, I also attached a specialised tracking device to the left sheux so that in 12 to 18 months from now I’ll be able to revisit this combo and snap a fully-fledged Archetypal.

I love my line of work. I really bloody do.
