The Nudie Jeans Fall 2014 Collection
Who illustrated the dark side of everyday life better than the late Charles Bukowski? His prose and poetry reflected the pure and honest, undistorted reality.
The inspiration for this collection comes from his 1971 masterpiece, Post Office, in which he portrays the menial work of the mail carrier. Hard, analog work, sorting and distributing mail, toiling away, with thoughts of a better future, or the lack of it, as company.
Bukowski might not have agreed, but the work of the mail carrier is important. Bringing news of happiness and despair. To us, the handwritten letter illustrates the pure and honest. It took time write, was read over and over, and the recipient took time to answer it. We live in a throwaway society, but back in the day, things were given time to develop into something that was worth taking care of.
The garments in this collection should be cared for the same way. Timeless, quality pieces to wear over and over; be repaired when they need it, and be passed on, to tell their story. Stories about our lives, engraved in the fabric like handwritten letters.
This collection is full of leather, heavy canvas and wool. Garments that will withstand the wear and tear of our everyday life – the toils of the everyday hobo.
We also feature beautifully worn in denim to tie it all together and make it even more cohesive.
