For someone who's a sports-enthusiast and a stylish one at that, denim makes for a major part of his life — the world's most versatile and practical fabric. The idea is simple, whether you're on the field or at a luncheon, the importance of a comfortable (yet terrific) menswear move is vital. Globally worn in endless variants and multiple forms on every body type, since denim is a breakthrough flex to consider anyway, 22-year-old Indian Gunveet Singh Dang too, hardly begs to differ here. Only difference? His faith in the fabric is a hell lot more, that he calls denim his best-est friend in life (even his 2 AM buddy).
For '31 Days Of Denim', he etches his relationship with denim for the first very time on MensXP.com and needless to say, gives us a lot of style takeaways.

A denim shirt! And well, it still has a place in my closet and is undoubtedly, the best denim piece I've owned till date.What's your relationship with denim?
I think we're best friends; it has always had my back (even at the last minute).Denim or food?
Eating food while wearing jeans. Sounds fair, doesn't it?Does slipping into denim depend upon your mood?
I think, the best part about slipping into denim, is that it doesn't depend upon a particular mood. You can wear it at any time, anywhere, regardless of your state of mind.Dark wash or light wash jeans?
Light wash; it compliments my penchant for light/pastel colours better.

Every week, once I'm done wearing them at least 3-4 times.Ripped or distressed?
Distressed!Three must-have denim pieces for men?

Since I'm into the manufacturing of fabric anyway, I'm all for style experiments in life. As for denim, yes, I once tried throwing in some patchwork on my jeans.

A denim memory you can never forget...
I had recently starting chatting up with a girl on Instagram and decided to take her out on a date to a music concert. Not to forget, we also decided that we'd go pre-drinking before eading to the venue. Of course, things went exactly as planned. Until, we reached the concert arena and I was parking my car, and she decided to puke all over my jeans. Now, we all know how that ended (no pun intended).
