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 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!

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
  • …..
  • …..

What’s your favourite inspiration quote?

Diesel ‘Old Glory’ Labor Jeans From 1994

From 1992 till the mid ’90′s Diesel Jeans from Italy created a special denim line inspired by the Big 3 (Levi’s, Lee & Wrangler) called Old Glory. Old Glory was the best line ever created by them. This special OG collection was really outstanding and totally different than other denim brands. They came with selvage jeans, orange selvage, cool embroidered jackets, tees, sweats etc. All workwear inspired. This same period I also started working at Diesel Jeans in The Netherlands. Those were the best Diesel days in my opinion. The Old Glory line wasn’t a big commercial success, but the items are still great. My Old Glory collection is pretty big, but I’m still missing pieces. A while ago I could add this OG jeans in my collection, model Labor. The jeans, made in Italy, is made of a real soft left hand fabric (non-selvage) and has the original workwear look. Check it out!

For this jeans they twisted the weft with blue, white and red threads to create a nice blend of colours. A lot of country flags contains these colours, so almost everyone would feel a connection with this one. Also the selvage is made of these three colours.

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.

Denim Rooftop Project by Wim Ravestein

Yesterday I hooked-up with Wim Ravestein which is a true denimhead from Boskoop, a small village in Holland. Wim is very dedicated to jeans, has some nice worn-out projects and knows where he’s talking about. Next to that he has a extremely cool rooftop project going on. On his rooftop he has a very experimental denim project for already more than 5 years. Some of his rigid jeans are catching some sun, rain and snow 24/7 and 365 days a year, non-stop. All to check out the development of the unwashed denim fabrics. One of his projects was even the base of a birdhouse this Spring! For his rooftop project he’s using some old Blue Blood and new G-Star jeans.

Wim was also one of the few who had an original G-Star US Lumber from 1997 in his denim collection, which he donated to me for my private denim collection. I’m very happy with this jeans as this item was missing in my collection and a perfect addition next to my Gapstar US Second and G-Star US First jacket. Both denim classics nowadays. I gave him a classic jeans as a thank you, Edwin Nashville, for his rooftop project. I’m really looking forward how this jeans will age with a natural treatment of some years.

Thanks again Wim for sharing our same passion and your great worn-out G-Star US Lumber. Will post more about this later. Keep up the good work with your amazing rooftop project! To be continued…

Chasin’ Launched Royal Attitude Collection At Tradeshow Pitti Uomo

Chasin_Denim_e2bbb_450x450

Dutch lifestyle denim brand Chasin’ launched last week during the Pitti Uomo tradeshow their latest collaboration: Royal Attitude. With this collab Chasin’ recycled uniforms from the Royal Netherlands Navy. The project was conceived together with James Veenhoff, founder of House of Denim Amsterdam.

Royal Attitude will be a seasonal part of the Chasin’ collection as of now. Through recycling of naval pieces Chasin’ created 2 stand out jeans, both in a 11,5oz quality. 1 is the iconic Ego jeans, which is the brand’s representation of the classic 5 pocket, with added stretch. A more contemporary fit is the cropped chino fit. For these jeans unique washes were created, inspired by the ocean. Next to the denims, the collection contains a denim jacket and several tops. Collection in stores from January 2017.

Congrats guys with the launch of this great and creative idea. Jeans and Navy are a perfect match!

Historical Denim Pants From 1840

Denim Fashion's Frontier  1840's pants long john blog jeans denim workwear old authentic (11)

Denim is one of the world’s favorite fabrics, and also one of the largest segment of the clothing industry. To celebrate the iconic blue clothing item Emma McClendon, assistant curator at The Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), New York, organised a great expo which was displayed untill the 7th of May. The expo was called: “Denim: Fashion Frontier“. Emma publised also a book with all the highlights from this expo.

Cover book: Denim: Fashion Frontier

The most interesting item from this ”Denim: Fashion Frontier” expo was a pants dated from the 1840′s. This is a true treasure and pre-miners jeans. It’s the oldest pair from the FIT museum archive. This pants is extremely cool and loaded with great details;

  • Fall front instead of a center fly.
  • Fall front is attached with 3 bone buttons (Metal buttons were introduced later and most of the time on workwear clothes).
  • The bone buttons absorbed the indigo, see center of the buttons, as the pants was dyed in indigo afterwards.
  • The pants is dyed in indigo after they were made, instead of dyeing the threads first before weaving.
  • The entire pants is hand stitched including the repairs.
  • The waistband is reinforced with denim fabric.
  • Triangle in the waist to help the wearer tighten the waist.

The shots here below are stills from the video, attached at the end, which they made to highlight all the magnificent details from this 1840′s blue indigo pants.

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.

The Butcher of Blue (BoB) brand – founded by Bob Rijnders from BOB Hoogland Store – NL, expanded the collection for Spring Summer ’16. For SS there are several new t-shirt prints and colours added to the BoB collection, all made in Portugal. There are also some new jeans in the collection. Bob started his brand with an unwashed (dry) jeans so the new light washed jeans and rock ‘n roll black jeans are both a perfect complement in the collection. The jeans are made of selvage fabrics from the Italian Candiani Mill. And to make it all complete, and really nice!, is that he also made his own Butcher of Blue coffee and indigo coffee cups.

Lebl Denim Atelier by Leon Blok

lebl denim jeans bespoke leon blok selvage selvedge handmade custom made rigid blue indigo unwashed raw limited edition special blue amsterdam nl holland jeanmaker (2)

Lebl Denim Atelier is an Amsterdam based denim studio founded by Leon Blok. Leon is making tailored made and personalised denim garments. If you can’t find your favo denim style, he’s your man! For his creations he is only using the best suppliers from America and Japan that have a long history in manufacturing high-quality denim fabrics.

How does it work to get your favo Lebl pair of jeans or jacket? Here are the steps to your ultimate piece of denim:

Step 1) We sit down and have a chat about your style, your personality, what you do. We also discuss any ideas you might have about your new favorite jeans.

Step 2) We take your body measurements and go into the subjects of fit, choice of fabric and stitch detailing. Lebl serves as your sounding board and will give advice, but you are the one making decisions.

Step 3) Then we part ways and Lebl draws up a pattern and design, and carefully construct your sample.

Step 4) We meet again for a sample fit. This is where you test and try the functional design before it’ll be made out of your selected fabric. We make the necessary alterations to the pattern, rejig pockets, fine-tune all details and adjust things where needed. Next time you see your garment, it’ll be for real.

Step 5) The day has come to try on the final product. When you slip into it for the first time, the raw fabric might feel weird to you. But trust us: after a week or two you might not want to take it off again and it feels like a natural match. Not love at first wear? We’ll adjust it for as long as it takes to feel perfect to you.

Below some examples of high quality, special handmade Lebl Denim garments.
