Lately I bounced on a great new clothing treasure, called Union Spark. Union Spark is originally an American brand, founded 1925 in Georgia, U.S.A. but is since 2012 owned by the Italian company Sevenbell that is continuing the American heritage. Back in the days the brand produced t-shirts for colleges and for the U.S. Army and still today, the brand is influenced by classic Army items, in the style of Steve McQueen in ‘The Great Escape’ and Marlon Brando’s ‘The Wild One’.
Sevenbell, more famous for the brands Roy Roger’s and President’s, is for the season of Autumn/Winter 2013-14 releasing a first mini collection of Union Spark tees, mixing the touch of the 50’s with their 100% Made in Italy manufacturing. The t-shirts are made in the same way today as they were back in the days – produced on the same looms, the t-shirts looks like they would be coming straight from that era, without unnecessary ‘aging’ processes.
The amazingly authentic collection will for this first season be exclusively sold on www.sevenbell.com and what is nice to mention is that you will receive 10% discount if you subscribe on their website before the launch. See the images here below and you’ll know that this is worth to have an extra look at! All in all happy to see that a historic brand like this one is still alive!
I am proud to show you our new ’Butts and Shoulders’ brand. This brand is a collaboration of friends which are sharing the same authentic passion. Our idea was to create the ultimate travel bag. After one year of testing several pilot bags which have travelled through the world we finally made our First Edition of 50 bags. They are now for sale in our webshop section.
Our Butts and Shoulders bag is made of 100% natural vegetable leather. We call it virgin leather. The moment you unpack it, you are starting the unique ageing process. By using it, touching it and even by exposing it to daylight the looks of this unique bag will change. The more you will use it, the more beautifull it gets. Like a true friendship that will grow over time. Butts and Shoulders will be your buddy for the rest of your life.
Every bag will be delivered with a leather certificate with the unique bag number. The certificate reminds you to the start of the ‘virgin’ leather and it’s also the testimony of the registered original. The bag is 100% made in Holland. Below some pictures, but the best is to check our new website for the whole story and (detail) pics.
After 5 years challenging the purists with innovative twists like the 7-Point Pocket and the Drop Yoke, Denham the Jeanmaker applies its unique approach to a more classic range of 5-pocket fits. They introduce the Category 5. Each new – fit from tight through slim, from regular to relaxed – has been carefully cut and finished to represent the brand’s contemporary take on the timeless and iconic 5-pocket pattern jean. Denham’s signature attention to detailing is moved to the inside and the brand’s virtuoso approach to the laundry ensures that the soul and character are fully manifested on the outside. The wash range includes finishes from virgin to ‘worn-in 3 years’ inspired washes. Below some impressions of the Category 5.

Dawson is their family name. They simply produce the best workwear with their 15 years experience working with denim. All of their products are made in their own specialist workshop in Brighton, East Sussex. Each piece comes with a “log book” inspired by the same document from the golden age of motoring. Dawson denim is using the famous red line selvage from Japan, the red in selvage was introduced around the 1930’s to denote the highest quality. The mill they work with is family run and is over 100 years old. Selvage or self-edge is also the oldest, most authentic denim woven on the original looms. Personally I like their aprons a lot. Check them below.
Lee Jeans introduced the famous Hair On Hide patch in 1936. This was the company’s first leather label. The Lee logo was branded directly onto the cowhide.

Last week I received one of the first pairs of Endrime Jeans, the cargo pants. The new denim brand is founded by Mohsin Sajid from the UK. Besides the great Japanese fabric all the details are amazing, I really love products which are developed with so much details. This is very important in these days, value for money. A lot of details are finished with the famous red selvage. Also a classic pocket flasher is added on the right backpocket. To make it all complete the jean is packed in a box. Below some details. Check their website for the whole collection. Many thanks Mohsin, good luck with your new blue adventure, stay raw!
