Harbour Town Baby Selvage Denim Apron

Harbour Town is a new concept label based in the Netherlands founded by Wing Mok. It brings forth a modern heritage look and appeals to that adventurous person who knows what they want and reflects on what they stand for. Harbour Town uses only the finest handpicked fabrics and materials. They search for the best fabrics from the East and the best leathers from the West. Since they only use deadstock fabrics and make everything by hand, every piece is unique.

Last weekend I got this great gift from Wing for my little baby girl. It’s a baby selvage denim apron. The apron is made by a deadstock rainbow right hand selvage fabric which is famous from Edwin Jeans from Japan. On the front they branded the apron with a nice piece of natural vegetable tanned leather with a handstamped logo. Both the denim fabric and the leather will age nicely over time. The apron is adjustable in the neck with a button. Many thanks Wing, it will be usefull for the little monster!

Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) Lookbook Spring Summer 2015

Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) made again a great lookbook for their Spring Summer 2015 collection. It’s the 7th book in the book range with the canvas feeling hard cover. As always you can see that Levi’s is putting a lot of effort in these books, the photoshoots are inspiring high quality campaigns. The theme from the collection is the Fifties, the time that the Rock & Roll and bowling scene was born. After WW2 a lot of young people were about exploring and creating new ways of clothing, music and lifestyle. For the denim business these were the golden days and especially for Levi’s it was booming business. The WW2 soldiers brought jeans outside of the U.S.A. and after the war was ended they left the countries without their jeans, so denim became real popular by the youth. LVC made a great ode to this era. Thanks to Spice PR -Amsterdam for sending a copy to me. Looking already forward to the new theme for Fall Winter ’15.

Iconic Levi’s Jeans From 1800 till 1947

Levi’s Jeans has a very rich history as it comes to denim. The early models are the most interesting as they tell all a great story from that time and these items are true historical moments in the denim industry. Not all the info is 100% garuanteed as the Levi’s HQ in San Francisco was destroyed by an earthquake in 1906, their complete archive was destroyed, and so are the stories behind every detail. Below some great old examples, from 1800 till 1947, from the one and only Levi’s Jeans from the U.S.A.

Levi’s Jeans 1800 model

1890 was the year that the 501 lot number was first assigned to the iconic jean. The number “5” were considered to be of the highest quality. A description of the quality of the pants was printed on the inside of the left pocket bag as another way to set the jeans apart from other clothing companies.1890 levis long john blog

1890_1

Levi’s Jeans 1922 model

Belt loops were add to the 501 for the first time in 1922.

1922

1922_1

Levi’s Jeans 1933 model

Hidden under the leather patch of the 1933 501 was a tiny, white cloth label with the letters “NRA” and a blue eagle.  This was the National Recovery Act label which Levi’s was allowed to use because the company abided by President Franklin Roosevelt’s NRA labor rules of the 1930s.

1933

1933_1

Levi’s Jeans 1937

The 1937 501 featured the famous Red Tab with “LEVI’S” stitched in white capital letters on the right back pocket as an identifying mark to Levi’s Jeans. The Red Tab was introduced in 1936. This particular Red Tab is now also known as the BigE tab. In 1971 Levi’s swtiched to a small e in the Red Tab. The BigE tabs are true collector items nowadays. This model also has the first hidden rivets on the back pockets to safe furnitures from scratches.

 Levi’s Jeans 1944 model

Most important change was the famous arcuate stitching, it had to be removed since the threaded design was decorative and had no function. During WW2 every brand was forced by the government to save materials. Levi’s decided to print the arcuate so customers could recognize the brand in the stores. After a few washes the printed arcuates were gone. They used also standard buttons, no rivets on the coin pocket and the cinchback was removed.

1944

1944_1

 Levi’s Jeans 1947

After WW2 this would become the most popular denim fit. It’s also known as the mother of all fits. The classic 5 pocket with straight legs.

The Beauty of Denim

My denim project for this moment is the Eat Dust Fit 73 jeans. Eat Dust is a fanatastic denim brand from Antwerp – Belgium and I am wearing this pair for 2.4 years now, every day, day in day out. The jean already got some really nice fadings and some spots are broken in and already repaired. Today my right knee just came through the denim fabric. Ít’s shows that the blue warp is broken but the white weft is still in perfect state. The beauty of denim.

Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Reproduction Champion Jacket from 1956

One of the best denim jackets ever made are the Wrangler Blue Bell Champion jackets. These jackets are also known as Promo jackets. This history about these jackets is really cool. They were made in the late ’40′s and ’50′s for the rodeo champions to promote the Wrangler brand. Rodeo events were very popular in those times. It was a clever way from Wrangler to use these heroes as living advertising boards. These rodeo jackets were specially made for them, so it wasn’t a piece in the regular collection. This also explains why these original jackets are really hard to find and very rare. True collectors items.

Wrangler Jeans also known as one of the Big 3 denim brands. The other two brands are Levi’s and Lee Jeans. The Wrangler name came from cowboys who worked with horses for their living. In 1947 Wrangler changed their name from Blue Bell into Wrangler for their cowboy oriented line.

The Champion jackets are special items, even the re-productions are not very easy to find anymore. Since a couple of years Wrangler unfortunately stopped producing this special premium Blue Bell line. My Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Champion jacket is a replica from 1956. This is the first jacket produced by Wrangler in 1948. It has a button front until 1950, when the buttons were replaced by a zip front.

The jacket featured vents on the back of the shoulders seams that were held in place by elastic strips on the side. It was tailored to give a tighter fit and still allow free movement.

Endrime Denim Presents: 18oz Hand Stitched Jeans

Mohsin Sajid from Endrime Denim – UK made a few months ago something which is the top of the top. A 100% full hand stitched denim. Every single detail is added by hand. It’s made from heavy denim fabric, 18oz Amhot selvage. No sewing machine was used to make this pair. It took 5 sewing days to complete one pair. This is something really uncommon and special. Great idea Mohsin! Check below the handmade Endrime jean.

Indigo People Tsuru Scarf

Yesterday I received this early X-Mas present from my friends from Indigo People. Indigo People was born out of love for traditional craftsmanship and the beauty of natural indigo. The brand is a homage to the artisans who keep up their heritage and to people with a great affection for authentic handicrafts. All their products are woven by hand and coloured with natural indigo. I got the Tsuru model which is width: 45cm / length: 180cm. I really like the intensive blue colour and the weaving structure of the scarf. The colour will age very nice over time. Many thanks guys and all the best for you too in 2015 with Indigo People! See you soon.
