(n) People absolutely and completely addicted to denim. Often found browsing the newest Japanese and Italian brands sewn on vintage selvedge looms, and participating in fashion and denim centered communities, such as Superfuture where they discuss the intricacies of selvedge, indigo dyes, cotton quality, weight, and cut.
These people are most often engaged with their raw (untreated) denim, spending hundreds of dollars on a single pair to wear relentlessly for multiple months and no washes to achieve the desired look.
If you can name a brand, these people look down on it. Diesel? Rock and Republic? Seven for all mankind? True Religion? Jeanophiles wouldn't be caught dead with them. APC, Dior Homme 19cm, Dry Bones, Samurai, 45RPM, Flat Head, and Studio D'Artisan are more their type.
Guy 1: Jeez, man, why don't you wash those things already?
Guy 2: Naw, I'm only three months in on these. I'm not about to fuck up the fades.
Guy 1: What a jeanophile.
Serious obsession with jeans.
Like any jeanophile, my obsession won't stop until I get my hands on the new Rock & Republic's.
OMG Have you seen her closet? She's a total jeanophile, there's like 50 pairs of jeans in there!
