Child’s Lee Cowboys Jeans From Circa 1945

Yesterday I posted the docu ‘In search of blue gold’ with David White from Ragtop Clothing – London. Today I show you a vintage child’s Lee cowboy jeans, circa 1945, from his archive. The jean is in perfect state and has a beautiful blue colour. The back is teared and patched. It’s an Union Made pant with one side selvage only. The backpockets are fastened with the famous X stitching.

Momohiki Japanese Boro Indigo Cotton Worker Trousers

Beautiful pair of Momohiki Japanese boro indigo cotton worker trousers. Momohiki was a common garment among farm women and shop men during the 1800′s and
the early 1900′s. It was worn by men and women. A woman’s Momohiki tended to be
decorative, often showing sashiko stitching. This pair has a lot of different kind of blue shades. It’s patched a lot which makes it a true authentic piece of art. Really nice!

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.

Denim Icon: James Dean

James Dean is a true denim icon. He got world famous in 1955 with his legendary role in the movie ‘Rebel without a cause’. James showed us how cool it is to wear a pair of jeans, mostly Lee Jeans, a plain white t-shirt, a leather jacket and some boots. Simple and timeless. Still today this is a classic outfit for everyday use. Rebel style.

‘Facing West’ by Lizzie Kroeze From Amsterdam

Facing West is an initiative by Lizzie Kroeze which is started in October 2013 in Amsterdam. As Lizzie is inspired by workwear and traditional techniques how they were made and maintain she came up with the idea to start her own company. With Facing West she makes the most amazing one of a kind indigo items. Most of the time she use the famous Japanese sashiko stiching technique to create, repair or to decorate items. As the sashiko method is always done by hand it’s very time-consuming, but the result is really beautiful! She got her inspiration from garments worn in various cultures, from American miners gear to Japanese farmers’ and fishermen’s wear. Below an impressions of her authentic work.   facing west amsterdam lizzie kroeze long john blog blue sashiko japan stiching authentic raw fisherman farmers repair fabric jeans denim rigid handmade patch work limited edition original (12)
