"Own Your Denim"

When: Sat., Sept. 3, 5-9 p.m. 2016

Every common object has an origin story. Denim, for instance, has been used in working people's clothing since the 18th century — either a French attempt at imitating Genovese corduroy or an English fabric with a faux-French name to make it seem exotic. Whatever the case, the sturdy cotton has been the fabric of choice for working people ever since, from wagon covers to overalls and blue jeans. Marlon Brando, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe only made it popular for the middle class in the mid-20th century, which brings us roughly up to date. Tonight is the night to Own Your Denim at Mountain Fold Books. Denver creative type Solomon Words will be setting up a pop-up version of his pending web-store, Left Hand Twill, to vend "vintage and finely curated" denim clothes to all comers. Enjoy music from DJ J-Uno while you browse. Mountain Fold will also be serving a selection of adult beverages, just to make this an Occasion. 121 E. Costilla St., 375-3378, mountainfoldbooks.org. — Griffin Swartzell
