Sarva Jeans: Riekte Sami Selvedge

Sarva is the new denim outdoor inspired brand from Sweden. All their denims are made in Sweden. This is something really special as in the late 70′s all Swedish factories had to close down due to lower priced competition overseas. Now for the first time in 35 years they can produce jeans in Sweden again together with a small factory that has kept their machines and knowledge from the glory days of Swedish textile production.

One of their denim highlights is the Riekte Sami Selvage. A jean made of a Japanese selvedge fabric from Kaihara, Japan. They have worked with them to develop their own 13.75 oz fabric with the selvedge in their south Sami colors red, blue and green. Peek-a-boo selvedge on the coin pocket and Swedish flag bar tacks to finish of the side seams. The leather patch is made in Sweden with naturally tanned reindeer leather from KERO Company in Sattajärvi. All in all a really nice high-end denim. Good luck guys! And check out their new webshop, it’s now online.

Iron Heart 634S Black Selvage Jeans 21oz

Iron Heart was founded by Shinichi Haraki in 2003 as an American workwear inspired denim brand, especially with a focus on bikers. Iron Heart is best known for its use of heavyweight fabric for clothing. The first jeans model released was the 21oz IH-634S, a classic straight cut style, which is the signature of the brand. From their signature they made a nice 21oz heavy black selvedge denim version. The made in Japan denim is very soft and comfortable to wear despite the thickness of the fabric. It is woven with hand-picked American cotton, which is known for its long fibers. Nowadays you see more and more black denim in the premium denim market, which is a nice alternative on the classic blue ones. Looking forward to see a worn-in pair of this one, think it will age very beautiful.

Vintage ‘Levi’s Baby Jeans’ With Orange Tab Part 1

This Levi’s Baby Jeans is a denim pant from my private collection. Size tag 12 months. It is made in U.S.A. and from the 1980′s. On the back pocket you see the famous orange tab. Levi’s originally introduced the orange tab in the late ’60′s as a new line next to their red tab line, but the orange tab pieces were more fashionable items. The jeans is a classic 5 pocket and has a zipper, this is common on kids jeans to close it more easily than buttons. The jean is made from right hand fabric, non-selvage and has a stone washed finish, typical from the 80′s period. I also own the jacket from this little ‘cowboy set’, will show you this one in Part 2.

Vintage Gapstar Selvage Jeans U.S. Second

This pair of Gapstar jeans is the first selvage pair made by Dutch company G-star in the mid ’90′s. Gapstar had to change their name into G-star because of the Gap Jeans brand from the U.S. G-star’s first raw selvage denim was the now famous model U.S. Lumber, but this was their first red line selvage denim, pre-washed in an ultra soft left hand fabric quality. It’s a classic five pocket jean, anti-fit model. The jean is in my private collection for a long time and a true collectors item nowadays. This is where it all started…Check out the old back pocket stitching on the really big pockets.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing Presents: Special Banner Items

In 1937 Levi’s Jeans used large banners to advertise the hidden rivets that replaced the exposed copper rivets on that year’s version of the 501, in response to complaints of exposed rivets damaging customers furniture. These denim banners were used to hang in the shopwindows or inside the stores to promote the brand. The banners were mostly made in really limited numbers, around 200 each, because silk screens in those days weren’t good enough to make more out of them. Nowadays these banners are really hard to find and are true collector items.

This Fall Winter Levi’s Vintage Clothing did something really cool as a kind of a tribute to the vintage banners, they made three classic pieces from reproduction banners: Type 1 jacket from 1936, 501 jeans fit from 1937 and a duffle bag. These limited edition items are made from rigid Cone Mills White Oak selvedge fabric, allowing them to break in beautifully, and uniquely, with time and wear. Check the item here below. They are available at Unionmade Store – US.

The Bandit Overalls Produced By Blue Blanket Jeans

My friend Antonio di Battista (founder from Blue Blanket Jeans) from Italy just came back from California where he was for the Denimbruin event. During the event he presented his new jean inspired by the gold rush era in collaboration with Cory Piehowicz (a.k.a. Bandit Photograph). The jean they made is based on a pair of 1800′s waist overalls which Cory found in the desert when he was on a trip with his buddies Mike Harris (writer from the book Jeans from the old West) and Russ. Everything was made by hand and with old machines using a Japanese pure indigo denim made especially for this jean. The jean will be produced as a limited edion and will come this Fall. Really nice project between two authentic passionated guys! Below some pictures of the jean.

Deadstock Atelier LaDurance Prescott Denim Jack

It’s already twelve years ago that Atelier LaDurance was launched in the stores. The brand was founded by Gerard Backx. ALD were premium denim items full of great details and super Japanese quality! Next to the amazing products the branding was extremely good! All done by true craftsman Boy Bastiaens (www.stormhand.com) from Maastricht – NL. He’s responsible for the whole creative identity of this brand. One of the best ideas from Boy was to make a simple connection to France (in the beginning the collections were made in France!) and to men and women, he came with the idea to make the inner pockets with a fabric refering to the French jam jars. So for men it’s blue with white and women red with white. Also the repairkit bullet delivered with every item was amazing. Besides that the all over branding was something new, something different. The total look and especially the fits from ALD had a link to workwear from the ’40′s and ’50′s.

A while ago I got my hands on this deadstock Atelier LaDurance Prescott workwear jacket made of 11oz Japanese raw fabric. I already have one in my collection, but that one is already washed one time. Check the jacket here below for all the great details from the great denim brand which unfortunately isn’t available anymore.

G-star Celebrates Their 25th Anniversary With Classics Jean Styles

Dutch denim brand G-Star celebrates their 25th anniversary this year and to celebrate this they launched a few classic from their archive back in the stores. The classics are the G-star Elwood, Faeroes, Lumber and US First. They came in different fabrics, from 25 years of wear wash to 25oz fabric. The US Lumber is my personal favourite, it was origanally introduced in 1994 and it was their miner inspired jean made of red listing selvage. For collectors this is a wanna have, so now it’s the time to get your hands on a pair, this time in a heavy 25oz fabric. This will last your lifetime! In the words from G-star: ”The kind of denim that can only be created on old shuttle looms in the hands of skilled craftsmen”. Great to see these classic back again and enjoy your anniversary!
