Harbour Town Baby Selvage Denim Apron

Harbour Town is a new concept label based in the Netherlands founded by Wing Mok. It brings forth a modern heritage look and appeals to that adventurous person who knows what they want and reflects on what they stand for. Harbour Town uses only the finest handpicked fabrics and materials. They search for the best fabrics from the East and the best leathers from the West. Since they only use deadstock fabrics and make everything by hand, every piece is unique.

Last weekend I got this great gift from Wing for my little baby girl. It’s a baby selvage denim apron. The apron is made by a deadstock rainbow right hand selvage fabric which is famous from Edwin Jeans from Japan. On the front they branded the apron with a nice piece of natural vegetable tanned leather with a handstamped logo. Both the denim fabric and the leather will age nicely over time. The apron is adjustable in the neck with a button. Many thanks Wing, it will be usefull for the little monster!

Iconic Levi’s Jeans From 1800 till 1947

Levi’s Jeans has a very rich history as it comes to denim. The early models are the most interesting as they tell all a great story from that time and these items are true historical moments in the denim industry. Not all the info is 100% garuanteed as the Levi’s HQ in San Francisco was destroyed by an earthquake in 1906, their complete archive was destroyed, and so are the stories behind every detail. Below some great old examples, from 1800 till 1947, from the one and only Levi’s Jeans from the U.S.A.

Levi’s Jeans 1800 model

1890 was the year that the 501 lot number was first assigned to the iconic jean. The number “5” were considered to be of the highest quality. A description of the quality of the pants was printed on the inside of the left pocket bag as another way to set the jeans apart from other clothing companies.1890 levis long john blog

1890_1

Levi’s Jeans 1922 model

Belt loops were add to the 501 for the first time in 1922.

1922

1922_1

Levi’s Jeans 1933 model

Hidden under the leather patch of the 1933 501 was a tiny, white cloth label with the letters “NRA” and a blue eagle.  This was the National Recovery Act label which Levi’s was allowed to use because the company abided by President Franklin Roosevelt’s NRA labor rules of the 1930s.

1933

1933_1

Levi’s Jeans 1937

The 1937 501 featured the famous Red Tab with “LEVI’S” stitched in white capital letters on the right back pocket as an identifying mark to Levi’s Jeans. The Red Tab was introduced in 1936. This particular Red Tab is now also known as the BigE tab. In 1971 Levi’s swtiched to a small e in the Red Tab. The BigE tabs are true collector items nowadays. This model also has the first hidden rivets on the back pockets to safe furnitures from scratches.

1937_1

1937

 Levi’s Jeans 1944 model

Most important change was the famous arcuate stitching, it had to be removed since the threaded design was decorative and had no function. During WW2 every brand was forced by the government to save materials. Levi’s decided to print the arcuate so customers could recognize the brand in the stores. After a few washes the printed arcuates were gone. They used also standard buttons, no rivets on the coin pocket and the cinchback was removed.

1944

1944_1

 Levi’s Jeans 1947

After WW2 this would become the most popular denim fit. It’s also known as the mother of all fits. The classic 5 pocket with straight legs.

Denim Artist Ian Berry a.k.a. Denimu

British denim artist Ian Berry (a.k.a. Denimu) conjures remarkably detailed portraits and urban landscapes using nothing more than old jeans. Over many weeks he cuts, stitches and glues using only the varying blue indigo shades of the denim fabric to provide contrast and shadow. The effect is amazingly detailed images, with a depth and texture that is hard to reproduce in print and online. He made portraits from Elvis Presley, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and recently he did racing driver Ayrton Senna da Silva. Ian used for this awesome portrait old jeans from the Senna family to create this masterpiece. If you aren’t familiar with this great talented denim artist Denimu, check a few famous portraits of this guy here below.

Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Reproduction Champion Jacket from 1956

One of the best denim jackets ever made are the Wrangler Blue Bell Champion jackets. These jackets are also known as Promo jackets. This history about these jackets is really cool. They were made in the late ’40′s and ’50′s for the rodeo champions to promote the Wrangler brand. Rodeo events were very popular in those times. It was a clever way from Wrangler to use these heroes as living advertising boards. These rodeo jackets were specially made for them, so it wasn’t a piece in the regular collection. This also explains why these original jackets are really hard to find and very rare. True collectors items.

Wrangler Jeans also known as one of the Big 3 denim brands. The other two brands are Levi’s and Lee Jeans. The Wrangler name came from cowboys who worked with horses for their living. In 1947 Wrangler changed their name from Blue Bell into Wrangler for their cowboy oriented line.

The Champion jackets are special items, even the re-productions are not very easy to find anymore. Since a couple of years Wrangler unfortunately stopped producing this special premium Blue Bell line. My Wrangler Blue Bell 11MJ Champion jacket is a replica from 1956. This is the first jacket produced by Wrangler in 1948. It has a button front until 1950, when the buttons were replaced by a zip front.

The jacket featured vents on the back of the shoulders seams that were held in place by elastic strips on the side. It was tailored to give a tighter fit and still allow free movement.

Vintage Lee Jeans Rider Jacket From The ’70′s

Old denim jackets with a customized back panel are my favorites. In the ’60′s and ’70′s a lot of bikers and hippies started to make this trend because they wanted to express themselves or they wanted to show their membership from a club. But also commercial companies did this personalisation on the back of jackets as workwear garments for their employees. This particular Lee Jeans Rider jacket from the ’70′s is in my private collection for a while and it has a nice chain stitched back. The jacket is made from a left hand fabric which feels very soft because it’s washed a lot during the years by the pre-owner(s). Check out this ‘Blue Ridge Pool Service’ jacket.

Jimmy Q and Ricky Hall for Roy Roger’s Rugged, Vintage Inspired Heritage Collection

With recovered material from the archives, Roy Roger’s from Italy presents a heritage collection which is vintage inspired featuring an unique eye for details like the raw selvedge denim, contrasting stitchings and vegetal tanned labels: the Rugged Collection. Roy Roger’s Rugged grounds its roots on the historic archives of the company and celebrates the collective imagination of the American world of the 40′s and 50′s. The collection is an alternative to the regular menswear line, yet staying close to the roots of the brand, offering quality denim and handmade in Italy pieces.

Drawing inspiration by the vintage world, the Roy Roger’s Rugged collection is a journey throughout legitimacy. A trip across the American imagery, from hotrods and bikes inspirations, to raw denim and washed chambrays, where each piece of the collection recalls the authentic spirit of enduring freedom of USA roads. Roy Roger’s Rugged chose for this cool photo set models Jimmy Q, a pro skateboarder and tattoo artist, and Ricki Hall, who has been nominated from Esquire Weekly “The man with the most influential haircut in Britain” this year. A deeply evocative photo-shooting seen trough the lens of the camera of the photographer Luca Campri.

Dumluck Denim Brand Presents: The Third

Dumluck is a one man show denim brand by Kenley Chittick from Holland. Kenley just released his new collection called The Third. The whole collection is made by hand using industrial vintage machines. One of the best parts of the brand is that he only use deadstock fabrics from the best mills like Cone Mills from the U.S. and Kuroki from Japan. In his Third collection he added some great new styles like several denim jackets, shirts (also an extra long selvage denim shirt called Act S, really nice!) and of course denims. Kenley combines authentic craftmanships and new silhouettes which give a new look and feel. Well done Kenley and congrats! Check below some images from his Third collection.

Lee Jeans Rider Jacket ‘Farmers Fair 1957′

Recently I got my hands on this Lee Jeans ‘Farmers Fair’ Rider jacket. This jacket is a re-production of the original from the fifties. On the farmers fair in the U.S. in 1957 they reached out a denim jacket to the best farmer of that year. The best farmer was M.U. Aggies, his name is embroidered on the front of the jacket. On the back there’s a beautiful horseshoe with the date of the fair. It was the 52nd fair. The jacket is Union Made with a left hand non-selvage fabric. The original jacket, what was the inspiration of this repro, was found in Italy. Can you imagine what a nice story this is how the jacket came in Italy from a farmer from the U.S. Guess we will never know. Anyway, I’m glad with this item in my private collection. Lee on his best!

Evisu Japan: Homage To Levi’s Jeans Orange Tab

Evisu Jeans from Japan made 10 years ago a homage to Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. Each homage jean had the specifics of the original brand. The branding on the back pockets were made in Evisu style, with their famous paint. I have these specials in my private collection for a while, but I was still searching for the final 4th item, the Levi’s Jeans Orange Tab. Finally I got my hands on a deadstock pair, so now this collection is completed! The jean is really nice, made out of a slubby Japanese two colour selvedge. And of course the orange tab on the back is amazing! Check it out here below.
