Now here’s a mystery I really have to get to the bottom of (pun intended). I just found these jeans on Ebay. Used, and selling at the bargain price of 389 dollars. Stitched on the butt under the DSquared brand logo is the cryptic message, ‘Toronto Don Mills 1964’. The auction lists these jeans as ‘rare’, ‘wonderful’, and ‘a masterpiece’. I’m not sure I would go that far, but hey, clearly they’re decent denim. But 400 bucks worth of decent? And why do they say Don Mills? What’s the story here? More investigation is underway!
