User Stories: Lee, the Stonemason
We found this beautiful pair of Sharp Bengts handed in for repair at
our store on Chapel Street in Melbourne, Australia. Lee, a stonemason by
trade, used his Bengts every day for nine months, and the result proves that stonemasonry is 100% ideal for breaking in denim.
“Working as a stonemason I spend a lot of time on my knees to install and polish the stone. When I’m lifting and moving stones around, I always carry them same way. Doing this on a daily basis has created some fantastic wear and tear on the denim. My favorite hole is the one on the coin pocket. The dusty and dirty environment also helps adding character to the denim.”
When Lee decided to retire and donate his trusted companion to us, we felt that we had to make a replica. The original pair were Sharp Bengt Dry Orange Selvage, but since that fit was retired, we choose to make them Grim Tim. Get your own Buy Nudie Jeans Replicas.
