Something We Call "Future Vintage"Over the years, Cult of Individuality has come to appreciate the twists, styles and interpretations that their customers imprint on Cult’s raw, or “dry” denim. That sublime outline from a smart phone in your pocket. A touch of shop grease around the cuffs. Those habitually pulled belt-loops. All elements evolving to give your denim a unique, singular, vintage-like look and feel. It’s inspired them to think of each of their raw denim products as “Future Vintage” – Because each pair they make has the potential to become a timeless denim classic. And now they want to help you create your very own, and, potentially, a new Cult Style.
Introducing the Future Vintage ProjectNow, Cult wants more fans of denim to discover the unique personal appeal of raw, and maybe get more of that Cult individual style, but recreating one of their customers style. Introducing the Cult of Individuality version of a raw denim challenge – the Future Vintage Project. As with most raw denim challenges, you are asked to go through several months of breaking in your raw denim by wearing them as often as possible and putting them through their paces without washing them, so that they take on the characteristics unique to your own lifestyle and fit. If you’re new to raw denim, and unsure of how to take care of them, break them in or treat them – here are a few tips and tricks for you. To get started you will need to get your new pair of Cult Dry Denim (Cult uses the term dry instead of raw, but they have the same meaning) and post them on Instagram or Twitter using #CultFutureVintage. Then, throughout the following 7 months of the Project, you will face monthly challenges and document your denim journey with photos, Facebook posts, blog posts, Tweets, Instagram photos, etc. – all tagged with #CultFutureVintage so that Cult can monitor the progress of the Project, and choose a group of finalists.
Seven Months LaterAt the end of Cults challenge, we will choose several finalists, and those who follow the Project will be able to vote on their favorite. The winning pair of #CultFutureVintage will be re-produced and debut as a limited style in Cult's 2016 product line, with the winner receiving a$1000 credit to www.Cultofindividuality.com, and a healthy amount of Cult swag to keep wearing-in.
