Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) Fall Winter 2016 Collection

levis-vintage-logo-770x444_large-long-john-blog

One of my personal denim highlights every season is the Levi’s Vintage Clothing (LVC) collection. Levi’s is creating every season a high quality made collection with inspiration from their rich heritage. They create a tribute story. For the Fall Winter 2016 collection they picked the theme: 9TH ST. The 9th Street Exhibition in New York, 1951, was the first time artists showed collectively, and along with poets and writers of the time, became known as the New York School. In the mid ’40s, just after WWII, there was a revolution within the American art world. It became known as Abstract Expressionism. They were a new breed of artists, heavilty influenced by surrealist painters who had fled Europe during the war. The items from the new LVC collection shows a different colour palette in tees, tops and finishes on the jeans.

As always the LVC lookbooks are made from the same high standard as the collection itself. The lookbook starts with some re-production pieces from the large (more than 20.000 rare pieces) Levi’s denim archive. The next chapter is about the main LVC collection with the 9TH ST. theme. In the middle of the lookbook they show how to wash, wear and care your favorite pair of jeans. The last chapter shows a kind of streetpeople wearing LVC on a very cool way. The pics are shot in black/white which is a perfect choice.

All in all, the LVC line is as always very exciting and special. Check below some shots taken from the new Levi’s Vintage Clothing lookbook No. 10.

Old Glory ‘Nomad’ Jacket by Diesel Jeans From the early ’90′s

Another authentic Old Glory jacket by Diesel Jeans from my personal denim archive. This jacket was made in the early ’90′s, around 1992 – 1992. The model is the Nomad style. I have this Nomad style in more colourways in my collection: Ecru – Grey – Black. Recently I could add this Brown colour also to my collection. There’s still a colowway which I haven’t yet, the denim version with yellow embroidery on the back. The Old Glory line was the best line ever created by Diesel Jeans. It’s a pity that it wasn’t a big commercial success as it was only produced for a few years. This special line was a kind of a homage to Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. This jacket is inspired by the famous Lee Jeans Rider jacket from the ’30′s. Check here my latest Old Glory treasure.

Edwin Jeans Fall Winter 2016

edwin-jeans-japan-europe-long-john-blog-denim-selvage-selvedge-fall-winter-2016-collection-items-pieces-sweats-tshirts-3

Edwin Jeans is always one of my favo’s. Their collections are always loaded with classic items which you can wear all year around. My kind of stuff. The new Edwin Jeans Fall Winter collection has again the classic musthave items as basic tees, good fitted and priced selvage jeans, comfi sweats, shirts and warm jackets. One of the best things about the brand is that the prices are good and reasonable, but also their choices for colours are perfect. Their colours are matching with their no-nonsense look; white, grey, blue and black. Yes, that time of the year is coming again that you can layer your outfits and dress like it should be. Below some shots of the new Edwin Jeans Fall Winter ’16 lookbook.

Vintage Levi’s Big E Biker Jeans Vest From The ’60′s

Another vintage Levi’s Jeans jacket from my private denim archive: Levi’s ‘Big E’ biker vest from the ’60′s. The jacket has a great patina and cut-off sleeves as it belonged to a biker from the ’60′s era. The back of the buttons are stamped with digit #525 which refers to that period. The ‘Big E’ Red Tab is still in very good condition. On the back of the vest you see a super nice fading which came from riding the back that often. Above the great fading you see H. Angel marked by hand.

Check the original Levi’s ’Big E’ Jeans MC Biker Vest here below. I also attached some links to some more Levi’s ‘Big E’ Jeans denim biker vests from my private collection. Enjoy!

Vintage Levi’s Jeans 507XX (Type 2) Big E Jacket

Today I want to highlight another original vintage Levi’s Jeans 507XX (also known as Type 2) Big E jackets from my private denim collection. The Levi’s Jeans 507XX jacket was introduced in 1953 as the follow up on the 506XX (Type 1) jacket and was produced until 1962. The 507XX jacket has a selvage redline inside which disappeared at the follow-up jacket, the 557XX (Type 3) Trucker model. The red in the selvage is gone through the many washes of the jacket. You see this a lot at old denim pieces. The back of the buttons are stamped with #0.

This jacket model is one of my favorites as it refers to the ‘Golden Period’ in the denim industry. During the ’50′s the denim industry exploded as denim became more mainstream as movie stars as Marlon Brando and James Dean were wearing denim outfits in the films. Also the rock and roll era was started in the ’50′s, Elvis was also spotted in denim many times. These icons were very important ambassadors for the denim industry.

Check below the alsmost 70 years old Levi’s Big E Jeans jacket which is still in very good condition. A true classic!

———————————————————–

What’s your role exactly at R.D.D.? My role goes 2 ways:

  1. Working closely with our buying and design team to create the best products. I gather all kinds of feedback and information so they can make the best collections.
  2. Being the sales representative for the Netherlands, trying to find cool denim stores where we can display R.D.D. in the future.

How long are you working in the Denim industry? 12 years.

What’s the best part of your job? Working with the collections and talking about denim. I think the whole heritage and craftsmanship behind this product is so interesting, that I really like talking about the production process and all the effort that is being made to produce a single pair of jeans.

What makes R.D.D. so special? That we take the inspiration from authentic workwear and transforming it into genuine premium jeans-wear for the denim enthusiast of the present time. We work exclusively with selvedge denim from Japan and Italy. Next to the very cool dry denims from Kuroki we also have stretch denims from Candiani. In this way we combine authentic qualities with modern ones.

What is your favourite item from the R.D.D. collection? The dry 13oZ denim jacket from Kuroki. It shows the authentic work wear in so many different details and has a very nice slim fit.

What is your favourite all-time denimfit? Our Regular, this is bit loser on the upper leg and a bit tapered at the leg opening.

What jeans are you wearing right now? The slim fit 13oZ from Kuroki (have been wearing it for approx. 150 days).

What kind of denim accessories do you recommend to denim heads? A vegetable leather belt + keychain, this for me makes every denim outfit complete.  And I never leave home without my wallet on a chain!

new vs worn

What are the next steps with R.D.D.? For the coming Autumn we have planned 2 pop-up stores at 2 retailers who are interesting in the collection. We will create a cool event around it so potential customers can get in touch with this new denim brand.

What are your hobbies’ next to denim? Off course spending time with my family, but also playing with my band and working on my bikes. Currently I’m building a hardtail old-school bobber and brat-style cafe racer.

What’s your favourite music band/singer? I have a lot! But when I take it back to the core it is definitely Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. Band wise I’m also a big fan of the Stray Cats, Batmobile, Reverend Horton Heat…. and I could continue like this for 2 pages.

lucas verhoef royal denim division long john blog jeans denim rdd selvage selvedge interview 2016 summer spijkerbroek eindhoven johnny cash sun studion tcb tattoo bikers bikes (22)

J.R. CASH: original name of Johnny Cash.

lucas verhoef royal denim division long john blog jeans denim rdd selvage selvedge interview 2016 summer spijkerbroek eindhoven johnny cash sun studion tcb tattoo bikers bikes (24)

TCB: this is the band which Elvis Presley had before he died (TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS BAND).

lucas verhoef royal denim division long john blog jeans denim rdd selvage selvedge interview 2016 summer spijkerbroek eindhoven johnny cash sun studion tcb tattoo bikers bikes (23)

SUN STUDIO: this is the record company where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and many others have recorded their music.

What’s your favourite music record and why? Jim Croce – he is singer/songwriter who played his songs in the late 1960’s. It is mainly just 2 guitars and Jim as the singer. For me the lyrics are spot-on, true and also funny.

lucas verhoef royal denim division long john blog jeans denim rdd selvage selvedge interview 2016 summer spijkerbroek eindhoven johnny cash sun studion tcb tattoo bikers bikes (2)

Where do you get your daily inspiration from? Mainly from how people looked in the 50’s. The way James Dean and Marlon Brando looked, I think a classic look is an unwashed jean with a basic t-shirt. Also for R.D.D. we take the vintage authentic denim look and transform it into present time premium denim wear.

lucas verhoef royal denim division long john blog jeans denim rdd selvage selvedge interview 2016 summer spijkerbroek eindhoven johnny cash sun studion tcb tattoo bikers bikes (25)

What’s on your bucket list? 

  • Road trip in America with my wife and daughter
  • Visiting Sun studio in Memphis Tennessee
  • Visiting Graceland (Elvis his Property)
  • Playing a big show with my band
  • Getting me an old beat-up pickup from ‘1959
  • …..
  • …..

Classic Gapstar US Second – G-star US Lumber & G-star US First Denim Items

gapstar g-star long john blog jeans denim amsterdam 1994 us lumber us first us second selvage selvedge spijkerbroek jos van tilburg brand merk blue indigo  (1)

The Dutch G-Star brand was started in 1989 under the name Gapstar as a new denim initiative. A few years after their kick-off, when they were going global, they changed their name from Gapstar into G-star because of the American Gap brand. G-Star is now a very big, well known and respective denim brand worldwide. In my private denim collection their are some key items, sort of vintage in the meantime, from their more than 25 years of G-star history. Today I want to highlight 3 pieces which are a kind of cult nowadays and for me personally one the best ever made by the Gapstar / G-Star company.

The 3 Gapstar / G-star items;

  • Gapstar US Second jeans. Selvage jeans made of left hand fabric. Dated from +/- 1994-1995. Classic 5 pocket jeans. Sold as pre-washed jeans.
  • G-star US Lumber jeans. Selvage jeans made of right hand fabric. Dated from 1997-1998. Classic 5 pocket jeans with a cinch back. Sold as pre-washed jeans. They also had these as a rigid (unwashed) version.
  • G-star US First jacket. Selvage jacket made of right hand fabric. Dated from 1997-1998. Classic trucker denim jacket. Sold as a rigid (unwashed) jacket. The jacket is still unwashed.

Last week Eat Dust showed their Spring Summer ’17 collection for the first time at the Seek Show in Berlin. The theme of their brand new collection is: ‘The Lonely Hearts Club‘. Rob Harmsen and Keith Hioco, both founders of Eat Dust, are true masters as it comes to make a collection with a mix of denim, workwear, streetwear and biker influences. Its always a big pleasure to catch up with these buddies, hearing the story behind every high-quality made piece. They added some killer pieces next to their core heavy weight denim fabric items, from very light comfomfortable denim pieces to an iconic suede item. The best is to check their collection live ofcourse at the upcoming Jacket Required show in London or visit their showroom in Antwerp – Belgium. I made some shots of several key pieces, check them here below (pics quality isn’t that good, sorry for that). Great to see you again guys and congrats with your new collection! Your hard work pays off every season, keep it up! Eat Dust: ‘One for the Road’.

Vintage Levi’s Jeans Trucker Big E Jacket From The ’60′s

This vintage Levi’s Jeans Trucker ‘Big E’ cut-off vest, dated late ’60′s, is from my personal archive. I have a true weakness for old customized denim jackets. Especially if they are original Levi’s. This model, the 70506 also known as the Type 3, is the most famous jacket of the denim jackets, also the most copied model by many other brands. This model was introduced by Levi’s Jeans in 1962 as the follow-up from the 507XX (Type 2 Jacket). The key details from this jacket are: Big E Red Tab, single stitched closure, button stamp is #521 (Levi’s used the single digit stamps first, later they changed it into three digits like 521, 524, 525, 526, etc.), tobacco stitching and cut-off sleeves (which refers to bikers). The previous owner was a Suzuki racer fan as he patched a lot of biker related patches and pins on his denim vest. Check it out!

Levi’s Jeans X Google: Project Jacquard

levis jeans long john blog jacquard google trucker jacket 2016 usa american innovation indigo blue  (1)

Last year Levi’s Jeans and Google announced their latest innovative collaboration. Their project is called Project Jacquard. With this project they created a new smart technology woven into the denim fabric. With this fabric you can control your phone.  Project Jacquard will allow designers and developers to build connected, touch-sensitive textiles into their own products. For this first kick-off project they used the classic Levi’s Jeans Trucker Jacket and gave it a twist that’s really cool and outstanding. In the two short movies here below you can see the introduction and the making of the project Jacquard. Great things are going to happen in the future of denim!
