User Stories: Kristoffer

Our good friend Kristoffer brought us his beloved Sharp Bengt Dry Brown Selvage the other day. These jeans have seen their fair share of adventure and have been customized to cope with the lifestyle. “I’ve had them for about a year or so, and I’ve done pretty much everything in them. I’ve climbed trees, been to festivals, […]

Patterns & cutting

Take a good look at your jeans. Look at all the big and small pieces that are attached to each other with seams. It’s pretty amazing, isn’t it? If you were to unravel every seam, the jeans would fall apart, showing awkward looking pieces of fabric that in some way would resemble a pair of denim. When […]

Selvage: keeps denim history from unraveling

Those of you who follow us on the regular often come in contact with the term selvage or selvedge. This refers to the self-bound edges of the selvage fabric. If you sneak a peek on the outseam of someone’s cuffed denim you will either see the joining edges with either a overcast seam or the coveted selvage. […]

The Jean Jacket: From Worker Blouse to Family Treasure

Just like denim pants, the jacket was developed as a sturdy garment for hard working men and women, cowboys and the fortune seekers of the gold rush. Just like the pants, it was later adopted by teenagers who made it dangerously stylish. The first denim jacket that we know of came about in 1905, and like always […]

The Weight: Defining Ounces

When you buy a pair of dry jeans you’re often informed that you’re dealing with a “this-or-that” ounce quality. A few people know about this, some don’t care, and some people might feel a little embarrassed to ask what it actually means. Here is an easy rundown of what we’re talking about. The dry denim fabrics are […]

Chain Stitching Unraveled

For students of the denim game, it’s all about authenticity. Every detail got to be just right, and even the machinery used to perform certain details got to be right. Let’s talk a bit about the stitching at the bottom hem and the coveted Union Special 43200G. For advocates of all things pure and authentic, the hem […]

To be or not to be: The Coin Pocket in the 21st century

Your jeans, you might have given them a nickname, but they are commonly referred to as the five pocket jean. Pretty simple; two in front, and two at the back. Then there’s the little pocket inside the right front pocket. This is one of the original pockets and it was featured on the first ever jean produced, […]

Black denim: wearing, washing and the pop cultural aspect

Without black jeans, the world would be a much duller and conformist place dwell. Imagine The Velvet Underground without black denim. It’s impossible, doesn’t work that way. In the 50’s Levi Strauss & Co. decided that they needed to update their 1837 classic in some way. They needed a poster boy. When they found him, he was […]

Sanford's war on shrinkage

One of the greatest headaches for denim aficionados is washing those dry jeans for the first time. Will they shrink? If so, how much of inseam and waistline will be lost? Today, almost all dry denim fabrics are pre-shrunk to prevent radical shrinkage when you wash your jeans for the first time. The care label says to […]
