mister-freedom-long-john-jeans-denim-special-edition-2016-presidental-president-limited-edition-american-usa-us-3

Mister Freedom gave their popular five pocket ‘Californian Lot.64′ jeans a special presidential treatment. It was made for the United States Presidential Election. They decided to issue a limited edition Lot.64 “Election” model. The jeans has the same fit and cut as the original Lot.64. The pattern is inspired by traditional 1950′s – 1960’s era blue jeans, traditional fit with slightly tapered legs.

The jeans is made of the heaviest ounce fabric by Mister Freedom so far. They used 16.5oz new old stock from the legendary Cone Mills from the U.S. with a white selvedge ID with a redline. The pocket bags are cut from limited yardages of 100% cotton new old stock vintage canvas, some printed with stars, some with stripes. The run of Californian Lot.64 “Election” is made for the Mister Freedom HQ in Los Angeles.

The usual Mister Freedom leather patch is left unbranded and blank this time. Do it Yourself (DIY) branding for those into displaying their political inclination, pet name or favorite band. The untreated natural leather is originally pinkish but will tan to a warmer color and get patina overtime. Get this special jeans here.

The Introduction Of Royal Denim Division (R.D.D.)

royal denim division rdd long john blog clothing brand jeans denim selvage selvedge blue indigo japan fabrics fabric candiani sweaters shirts denmark collection (1)

It’s always very exciting when a new denim brand is coming to town,
especially when the people behind it are making high-end jeans with great
details for more than 25 years. Royal Denim Division (R.D.D.) is a new luxury denim brand with workwear inspiration but made for the modern men. Timeless pieces with a modern fit.

The R.D.D. branding is the ‘Red Dot’ which you can see on every item as a reference to the craftsmanship from Japan. For their collection they only use exclusive denims which are sourced from the best mills from Italy and Japan. With their R.D.D. collection they combine the finest fabrics in the world together with world’s leading denim laundries to create unique garments. Classics with a twist. R.D.D. promises to deliver a complete denim collection each season with true jeanswear inspired pieces like t-shirts, sweats, shirts, jeans and leather accessories.

The first collection will hit the stores this upcoming September. It will be available in 30 selected stores worldwide. Looking forward to see the follow-up on this collection as this one is already a very nice entrance into the denim market. Well done and enjoy some R.D.D. highlights here below.

royal denim division rdd long john blog clothing brand jeans denim selvage selvedge blue indigo japan fabrics fabric candiani sweaters shirts denmark collection (1)

The basics from R.D.D. are their tees made of heavy 180g dry cotton qualities in three colours: white, olive and black. The tees have a triangle stitch detail in the armhole to give more comfort as it is a heavy fabric quality.

The R.D.D. sweats are made of heavy brushed cotton, 380g, available in three classic colours: grey, navy blue and black. The touch is extremely bulky and thick. This item is also made with the triangle stitch detail in the armhole. As detail they used a combination of flat lock and double needle stitches. Flatlocks are giving the vintage look, while double needles are more clean and modern.

One of my personal favo’s it their R.D.D. overshirt. The inspiration is from Japanese military overshirts. It is made of Japanese 10oz green twill selvage from the famous Kuroki mill. The fabric is washed at Leontex in Italy. It has a rinse wash to give it a soft and worn touch. The overshirt has copper buttons and a natural leather neck patch.

Every modern man needs a good quality denim jacket. R.D.D. made one from Japanese 13oz selvage rigid fabric. The fabric is from the Kuroki mill. The jacket is made in Italy. It has round bar tack details at plackets as a reference to authentic workwear. Natural leather neck patch and snap buttons. Looking forward to see a heavy worn-out jacket over some years of wear!

The basic for a true denim collection is a pair of dry jeans. R.D.D. made one of Japanese 13oz selvage Kuroki fabric. The jeans is made in Italy for a high quality pair of jeans. Great combination between Japan and Italy!

For those who can’t wait – and wear – a pair of dry jeans R.D.D. created a look of a pair which has been faded by 12 – 18 months of wear. The specs are the same as the rigid version, but this jean is washed at Everest in Italy for a great worn result.

For the rock and roll look and feel R.D.D. made a black comfort light weight stretch jeans. The jeans is made of 10.5oz selvage from Candiani – Italy. The jeans is washed at Itac in Italy, they are very strong in natural wash looks. The black warp and white weft combination gives it an original look. The idea is to recreate a look of a pair of jeans which has been faded by 10-12 months of wear.

To make your R.D.D. outfit complete they added a few very nice high quality accessories in their collection. Two belts and a keyhanger in two colours. The leather is vegetable tanned in Italy which is a prefect combination with their jeans.

Future Of Denim Event by ISKO Denim X Swedish Fashion Council

logo-hr

ISKO is one of the leading denim mills in the industry. They are creating 250 million meters of fabric per year and their portfolio includes more than 25.000 products. A very progressive company with a lot of denim innovation. Two weeks ago ISKO organised an event together with Swedish Fashion Council called: ‘The Future of Denim’. At ‘The Future of Denim’ topics such as denim wash, stretch and future consumption were discussed with a focus on technical innovations. Today’s denim consumer demands information about garment purchased, and also, denim companies are increasingly taking more and more responsibility in achieving ‘Circular Economy’ and responsible products.

During the innovation day ISKO unveiled six articles from the ISKO EARTH FIT collection that received the prestigious Nordic Swan Ecolabel certificate recently. Next to that they had some denim speakers on the event: denim expert Adriano Goldschmied (Godfather of the denim industry), Mike Schragger (Founder of Sustainable Fashion Academy), Marco Lucietti (Global Marketing Director of SANKO/ISKO™ division), Kutay Saritosun and Ebru Ozkucuk Guler (ISKO™ Corporate Social Responsibility) and Anita Winsnes (Managing Director Nordic Swan Ecolabel).

Below a recap of the ISKO X Swedish Fashion Council denim event in Stockholm.

Inspiration Event Los Angeles Vol. 8 ‘Original’ by Rin Tanaka

This upcoming February Vol. 8 of the ‘Inspiration Event’ will take place in L.A. The Inspiration event is an initiative from Rin Tanaka. Rin started publishing his ‘My Freedamn’ books back in 2003. This book collection contains the American highlights in clothing; denim, sports, workwear, army, streetwear, etc. All true must haves and some of the editions are already very hard to find. The ‘Inspiration’ event is a kind of tradeshow, event and fleamarket, all in one. But the core is meeting like minded people who has interest in American vintage apparel manufactured from the 1900′s – 1980′s. It’s all about vintage fashions and accessories from boutique and corporate American and Japanese companies, surf and skate exhibitors, plus artists and artisans, hot-rods, antiques, records and audio equipement, as well as live music. Below an impression video from Vol. 6 which was also in L.A. as Vol. 7 was organised in New York. Good luck with the organisation with this upcoming event Rin!

Vintage Levi’s Big E Jeans Jacket 557XX From The Early ’60′s

One of my latest vintage treasures for my private denim collection is this original vintage Levi’s Big E Jeans jacket from the early ’60′s. I have a true weakness for old customized denim jackets. Especially if they are original Levi’s. This model, the 557XX also known as the Type 3, is the most famous denim jacket. Also the most copied model by many other brands. This particular jacket has some great details which refer that it’s from the early ’60′s when this model was introduced by Levi’s (the model was launched in 1962). The key details are: Big E Red Tab, single stitched closure, two tone stitching on the shoulders, sign in the neck from the big label (more common by Big E Type 3 jackets are the smaller labels which are made later in the ’60′s), yellow stitching under the flap from the pocket (later models shows black stitching), and the button stamp is 0 (Levi’s used the single digit stamps first, later they changed it into three digits like 524, 525, 526, etc.). The previous owner stitched a nice palm tree on the back of the jacket which gives you the perfect hippy feeling. The cuffs from the sleeves are covered with new denim as they are totally worn-out. All in all nice addition in my large Levi’s Big E jacket collection. Aloha!

Workshop ‘Blue Print Amsterdam’ Dyed Long John Shirts In Natural Indigo

Last week Celia Geraedts, from Blue Print Amsterdam, was so kind to dip two of my Long John t-shirts in natural indigo. One Long John x Pike Brothers collab shirt and one original LJ anchor shirt. Celia is a wel known dyeing specialist and knows how to handle with natural indigo. She made one shirt more lighter blue and the other one dark blue. The results are extremly nice! The dark blue shirt has a red print and is still visible through the indigo. Both shirts are one of a kind and are made for my private collection. The pictures below show the magical process of indigo, you see that the shirts first came out with a nice green colour and changed into blue by the time the shirts got in contact with oxygen. That’s how this authentic way of colouring works! And that’s why they also speak about blue gold.

Until the end of this month Blue Print has a shop loaded with rare indigo items between the Spuistraat and Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam. And they organise indigo dye workshops too! Check it out fast as the workshops are very popular. Many thanks Celia for dipping the shirts in beautiful blue colours and success this upcoming month!

Levi’s Jeans Wooden Stool Made In England

Last weekend I saw this Levi’s Jeans stool at FrabiekNL in Waalwijk (Holland). FabriekNL is the best place in Holland to find the most rare vintage furnitures. They couldn’t tell anything about this item, but I think Levi’s developed these as a marketing tool for their shops. The stool is inspired by the one which farmers always use for milking their cows. It’s made in England in The Rake Factory. If someone has more info about this please send me an email to: info@long-john.nl
