PRO-Keds Sneakers From The U.S.A.

Sometimes you receive something really special, like last week. PRO-Keds sended me a great box which contains some super nice items; PRO-Keds sneakers, PRO-Keds t-shirt (made in Italy) and a Sneaker Freaker magazine including a PRO-Keds chapter with the rich history of this classic sneaker brand from the U.S.A.

PRO-Keds was established after World War 2 in 1949 as a basketball shoe. PRO-Keds was introduced to the world by George Mikan, basketball’s original Big Man. Mikan’s formidable style of play challenged the fundamental concepts of the game, so much so that the rules were changed because of him. And his challenger spirit brought results: PRO-Keds took Mikan and the Minneapolis Lakers to five NBA championships in the 40′s and 50′s. The team is remembered as much for its humility and integrity as for its dominant victories.

In the decades that followed, PRO-Keds became a symbol of quiet confidence, a conviction that simplicity is the purest form of sophistication. From stadiums to playgrounds to city streets, PRO-Keds sneakers were and are still worn by athletes, musicians, artists, style icons, and cultural innovators. I’m really stoked about this brand as they are the perfect sneaker for this Spring Summer. And yes, they match perfect to my jeans outfit. Thanks PRO-Keds for this great box which is loaded with American’s finest classic sneaker gear!

Seven Senses ‘Blue Hands Never Lie’ Collection

seven senses fabrics indigo natural selvage selvedge blue hands don't lie india jeans denim kingpins 2016 westergasfabriek westergas amsterdam kick-off event fair  (11)

Last week Seven Senses organised an event called: ‘Blue Hands Never Lie’ in the Gustafon builiding on the Westergas in Amsterdam – NL. They organised the event for the launch of their new collection. Exactly one year ago Seven Senses made their entrance as a new denim fabric mill. Their fabrics are heaven for everyone with an eye for high-quality and sustainable made fabrics. Seven Senses are making fabrics which are handspun, handwoven and coloured by hand with natural indigo. This is the ultimate and it’s unique in the denim industry. Their set-up of their event was more like an expo, an inspiration and meeting point for likeminded people. People with an interest in durable fabrics with a luxurious feeling.

The new Seven Senses collection contains a diverse range of handmade fabrics, from light to heavy weight with light and dark colours. All the fabrics are made with a selvage lining which makes them more special. The fabrics are created on old wooden shuttle looms. On the event was also a part where they highlighted their collab partners as Mohsin Saijd from Endrime Jeans and bag brand Atelier de l’Armée to name a few. Both made some beautiful products which gave you the perfect reference how you can use the Seven Senses fabrics. It’s a pity if you have missed the event, but I’m sure you will hear more of them in the future. Keep an eye of this one, really nice! Below some shots of the Seven Senses ‘Blue Hands Never Lie’ event.

Benzak Denim Developers (BDD) X Collect Mill Japan Special

banner

Benzak Denim Developers (BDD) announced a collaboration with Collect Denim Mill from Japan. Toghether they created a new special selvage fabric which you can now pre-order in the following fits: BDD-006, slim fit, and the new regular fit BDD-707.

benzak denim developers bdd long john blog indigo collect mill japan jeans special fit 14oz selvage selvedge model white tee black 2016 lennaert nijgh leather patch (10)

The low tension is the first BDD special, together with their Japanese friends from the Collect mill this denim has been created exclusively for BDD. With a 14oz. right hand selvage fabric, this is a perfect mid-weight and the construction is slightly looser which allows for an uneven weaving pattern and small slubs. The selvage colour id is yellow & green, and represent the first stages of indigo, before it becomes the distinctive dark blue color. This is a very cool and creative idea! This colour combo is carefully developed by BDD and is very unlikely to be found elsewhere. The special bull patch is made from super thin goat leather from Italy and marks the fabric’s exclusivity. Because the denim is sanforized, minor shrinkage is expected after the first wash. Both jeans are created in Holland and crafted in Japan. Well done Lennaert, very nice!

Utility Jacket by Nigel Cabourn

Over history the Utility Jacket has been worn for a variety of purposes, from workwear and military combat through to leisurewear.  For this design, the UK brand Nigel Cabourn pieced together three different vintage garments including the USMC shirt jacket and these can be seen in the distinct upper and lower parts as well as the left chest pocket. This great item is made in two colours for Spring Summer ’16: a special washed indigo and an indigo denim version. Great denim cut and sew item!

Work On Canvas by Denham Jeans & Grolsch Beer

Supported by Dutch Grolsch beer, Denham Jeans partnered with Dutch portrait photographer Marc Haers to create ‘Workoncanvas’. The concept from ‘Workoncanvas’ is to highlight the craftsmanship in Amsterdam. Liam Maher (brand director of Denham Jeans) and Marc Haers are giving an insight into the life of several very skilled craftspeople. Together they hand-picked seven artists who combine the skill and heritage of traditional crafts with their work and fitted them with a virgin Denham wardrobe. After 6 months of wear we can see how their creativity, craft and experiences have literally been mapped across their denim. The ‘Workoncanvas’ project offers a unique portrait of the artists, but also a portrait of Amsterdam itself – where it’s been, where it is today and where it is going.

Watch the video hee below to hear more from Liam Maher about this project. The next eight weeks you can discover creativity from Amsterdam and see how the Denham clothes can transform, influence and inspire each other, and find out how each artist took their wardrobe from virgin to vintage. Nice project!
