Warmer weather is finally upon us in Austin, and lighter wash and weight denim is in stock for the season here at Service. You may be thinking, aren't ultra light wash jeans the epitome of dad jeans? contraire mon pere (see what we did there?!), the pieces we have in from Gant Rugger, Levi's and Naked & Famous hug the body for a slimmer, modern fit.

A good chino or trouser alternative, grey denim looks great with a darker color button down on top and a boot or oxford shoe. Alternately, grey jeans (as do any jeans) work well scuffed up with your favorite tee shirt and your oldest pair of sneakers.

Levi's 511 White Bull Denim ($68) + Levi's 513 in Viva White ($68)...don't be scared to get them a little dirty, it's bound to happen and just adds to their vintage appeal. Wear them snug and slim and get ready for the're gonna look sharp. Come see us and we'll get you set up with a sturdy pair of denim meant for those highly anticipated warmer days.

Trivia: The term bull denim is used to describe a slightly heavier weight jean (14oz. plus), produced in a greige (grey or off white and undyed) fabric. Typically, bull denim refers to colored jeans, as the fabric is garment dyed during production or printed.

Christian was first a loyal Service customer, and then to supplement his wardrobe with employee discounts, picked up part-time work at the store.  His passion is also the kitchen. He has worked at Uchi for many years, and makes some mean, wickedly delicious "albondigas."  That's Mexican meatballs, for the anglophiles out there. Christian has been a fantastic Service employee, but his other interests and ventures are acting and some part-time modeling.

How long have you worked for Service?  On and off again for about 7 years.

What are you up to now?  Working the sushi line at a little restaurant on south lamar.

What is your favorite item you've ever purchased from Service? This is a great question because I have invested a lot of my time into their clothes! The winner would have to be my 511 levi's. Four years of hard work and still going.

What's the cheesiest pick up line you've ever used? Did it work?! How 'bout I give you one that was used on me, "I'm a millionaire cougar and I've kinda been stalking you." there's a lot more to it, but that's the point. didn't really work. 


Christian is wearing:

Gant, long sleeve striped henley

Penguin, wool blend blazer

Ben Sherman, slim stretch chino

Vans, guitar strap chukka decon

All available at Service Menswear.
