Genius or gross: A.P.C. is releasing a line of denim called "Butler Worn Out" that have that perfectly broken-in look...because the brand had someone actually wear the pants in before they were sold. So you can keep tabs on who's shared the crotch space of your pants, the name (or initials - it's unclear at present) of the person that wore them before you will be written inside the jeans. What's next—pit-stained tees at Barneys?
