Sparkling sneakers.

White canvas shoes are perfect for summer – until they start looking beige. Here’s how to remove stains, thanks to How to Clean Stuff. Scrub away dirt stains with shampoo on a nail brush, wipe residue away with a damp sponge. Use dish soap on grass stains, and nail polish remover on grease or tar. Apply oxygen bleach with am old toothbrush to any remaining off-white areas. If you don’t mind losing the new look, canvas shoes can usually be machine washed on a gentle cycle with warm water. Hang to air dry.

According to a Quora forum thread, the pocket was added to the original Levi Strauss “waist coveralls” so cowboys would have a safe place to tuck their pocketwatches. Today, the vestigial watchpocket is loved by “denimheads” for the way it ages and wears with age and country western boot scooters love to hook their thumbs into the tiny right pocket.
