100% British jean with a touch of Japanese
The best comes from the past and old trends are still something new to explore and re-create in the world of fashion. Just take the latest item introduced by Dawson Denim born in collaboration with the artist and sign writer Dry British.
The new limited edition jean shows a fit that comes from the 1940s directly. The choice of these ages – when denim was thought as a work fabric only – is not by chance: since 2012 Kelly Dawson and Scott Ogden have worked towards building a collection of denim workwear using traditional techniques and integrity. The past is used to rebuild the present and every item is produced for being functional but in line with current moods of fashion.
The 100% British result of this collaboration is an item with 13 oz indigo dyed red selvedge from Kuroki Okayama denim mill, as Japanese are the pocket bags as well (Japanese Indigo dyed Kasuri). While Dawson Denim branded buttons and rivets, Dry British payed attention to leather undyed leather patch. Each jean is numbered and signed by the maker, so every man who gets his own pair knows he is wearing something unique.
