  1. Shop The Flat Head T shirts
  2. We just received two stunning jackets from The Flat Head that tells us all we need to know about what makes this brand's pulse beat: an unremitting commitment to the highest levels of craftsmanship and fabric design. The Horsehide Rider's Jacket is made from leather custom made by the esteemed Shinki tannery in Japan. The semi-aniline finish to the 1.3mm thick hide combines black dye and pigment to allow this to age like nothing else whilst remaining tough and durable over time. There is sateen lining on the body and sleeves, classic D pocket design with zippered side and chest pockets, epaulettes with sterling silver studs, 100% iron "uchi-nuki" side-cinch buckles and universal zippers. We currently have sizes 40 and 42 with the 44 expected in a few weeks' time. "Flucky" is the first souvenir jacket we have carried and worth the wait. It is 100% made from rayon, a silk substitute invented by the Victorians and used on Hawaiian shirts of the 50s. What is remarkable is that the embroidery is also 100% rayon rather than polyester and finely and closely woven so there are no hollow gaps. This maintains the silk-like integrity over the whole jacket. It is lined with thinsulate providing insulation without bulk. The jacket is fully reversible with the traditional souvenir map of Japan on the wine coloured side plus the Flat Head Flucky wolf motif. On the black reverse side the "Customs Engine's Club" lettering is made from ultra-suede. The Flat Head heavyweight T shirts with triple stitched collars (that are literally indestructible) are made from a tubular knit. The T shirts are now cut and sewn at the sides for a more tapered fit. Shop The Flat Head Horsehide Rider's Jacket Shop The Flat Head "Flucky" Souvenir Jacket
  3. This spring UES Denim has released the Akiha Indigo Yarn-Dyed Selvedge Work Shirt. A tonal indigo stripe is subtly woven into the lightweight fabric. It has been rinsed once so will not shrink. The shirt uses Corozo buttons, has selvedge side gussets and placket and features triple-stitched seams. The Ramayana T shirts launched last year have been restocked in black and white and a new grey version has been introduced for 2017. The shirts are made from the luxurious Suvin cotton, grown in southern India, prized for its long staple and remarkable softness. The fit is so on point. Tried and tested (washed multiple times) for a year I can vouch that this is one of the best T shirts you will ever buy.

  4. There is always so much to choose from Stevenson Overall. If budget and space were no obstacle we'd buy the full collection. We are heading out to see SOC in May and will be considering chinos in the FW17 line-up.
  5. Stevenson Overall Co. releases two great jackets this spring - The Slinger in a custom woven Indigo Selvedge Canvas and the sublimely cut Deputy Jacket in Heather Indigo. The custom Slinger duck canvas is both rich in colour and texture with both warp and weft yarns rope-dyed indigo and destined to break in with tremendous high contrast over time.The jacket has acorn shaped riveted front pockets and V shaped pleats reinforced with copper rivets on both back and front. Additionally, the jacket features a cinch-back inserted and sewn within the pleats. The pocket flaps have a curved stitch design with a green line selvedge accent. Washed once there will be no shrinkage. Shop Stevenson Overall Slinger Jacket - Indigo Selvedge Canvas The Heather Indigo Deputy Jacket again uses a custom woven selvedge twill fabric with indigo warp and grey weft. This is a slim fitting ranch jacket and comes with real suede piping on the front and back yokes. The collar and cuffs are lined with corduroy. This is such an elegant jacket and in this indigo iteration we can't wait to see how well this one is going to age. Shop Stevenson Overall Co. Deputy Jacket - Heather Indigo We have also restocked Stevenson jeans (Dixon 310, 737 Ventura & 727 La Jolla) Hilts chinos in khaki and navy and the Cody denim shirt.

  6. It has a grey weft like the x011. It's closer to the x011 in slub and texture than the 2015 24 oz. At 17 oz. it's a very accessible denim for most people too. I'm looking forward to seeing the real deal once it arrives as hitherto just seen samples.
  7. We are expecting these jeans late May early June. We developed this as a collaboration but then decided mutually with PBJ to put them on general release. There is more of a taper.
  8. As well as a full restock of Skivvy and Stanley T shirts by Mister Freedom we have added the Fletcher shirt in white. This basically the long sleeve version of the Stanley T shirt. Shop Mister Freedom T shirts 3sixteen short sleeve Henleys are available in indigo, black and white. They are made from the same 9 oz. Canadian jersey knit fabric of the popular twin pack T shirts. Shop 3sixteen Henleys and T shirts
  9. Mister Freedom Liquette Tzigane is a standout piece from the SS17 Gypsy Collection. There is a nod to the French shirting of ‘30s bohemians and good dose of Romany gypsy styling. The shirt is made from a tightly woven 4 oz. printed 100% cotton poplin and has ruched cuffs and back yoke. The shirt also features early-type arrowhead side gussets, chain stitch run-offs, original MFSC chest flap single pocket and open single pocket plus an original MFSC Gypsy Blues woven rayon label. Shop Mister Freedom Liquette Tzigane Shirt Lot 674 jeans from Mister Freedom uses the 50% cotton/50% sugar cane fibre denim from Lot 64 and combines it with the top block fit and back pockets of Lot 64 and slimmer legs of Lot 74. It is in our opinion the best fit yet from Mister Freedom and the Okinawa denim is an unquestionably great fabric. Shop Mister Freedom Lot 674 "Okinawa" Jeans
  10. No but I'll be seeing UES next month in Japan and will discuss it again with them.
  11. Shop Rogue Territory Neppy Denim Work Shirt The new 15.25 oz proprietary Japanese selvedge denim is available in the two main RGT jeans fits - the slim straight Stanton and super slim SK. They have all the classic RGT details including lasso stitch to rear pocket, hidden pen pocket, single needle continuous stitched waistband and hand branded leather patch. A thoroughly modern jean made with thoroughly old school quality and attention to detail. Add to that full restocks of the stealth/black 15 o.z Supply jacket and 12.5 oz. tinted weft SK’s and you have a real treat of a drop. Shop Rogue Territory SK 15 oz.

  12. Our first major spring drop this year comes from the LA brand going from strength to strength - Rogue Territory. We introduced this brand to the UK a year ago and these new season offerings are further reinforcement of what a good decision this was. The much anticipated Pine Ranger jacket comes in a 10 oz. water repellent American canvas. Taking its inspiration from the classic Barracuta G9, the silhouette is trim and sharp. Gusseted shoulders add a unique and welcome touch to this type of jacket, providing both comfort and style. Welted pockets (two hand-warmers, one chest outside, one chest inside) keep the lines clean. Shop Rogue Territory Pine Canvas Ranger Jacket For a denim option, we have the Supply Jacket – Rogue Territory's updated take on the classic denim jacket. Constructed from a new proprietary (custom-woven) Japanese sanforized denim which has a ring spun yarn and is pure indigo dyed. It also has a unique indigo selvedge line. This gives the fabric a great fade potential due to the vertical slubby nature of the weave. Shop Rogue Territory Proprietary 15 oz Supply Jacket We offer two shirts from the SS17 line-up. The ISC work shirt is a custom made, 11 oz. rope-dyed Indigo Selvedge Canvas. Pure indigo across both warp and weft, this intensely textured material has a real depth of colour and character. The fading from this fabric never disappoints. The Neppy Denim Work Shirt uses a 9 oz. yellow line selvedge from the renowned Nihon Menpu mill in Japan. The 2x1 weave displays clear ‘nep’ – undyed cotton tufts poking through the material – which gives it its individuality. Shop Rogue Territory Indigo Selvedge Canvas Work Shirt
  13. The Railcar Fine Goods Explorer is one stylish double black denim jacket combining vintage details with an ultra modern slim silhouette. The hallmarks of Steven Dang, engineer turned jeansmaker (Steven used to fix the railcars on LA's Pasadena Line) are all over the jacket with strong triple flat-felled chain stitched seams throughout the interior with no exposed edges. Hand-set custom copper rivets strengthen and add style to the front panel pleats and there is a single utility pocket on the left hand side. The jacket is made from a 13 oz. Japanese selvedge denim. Shop Railcar Black Explorer Jacket Railcar also makes great jeans for our female customers. The Vixen is a new skinny fit and the x037 uses a 13.5 oz. selvedge denim with some stretch for comfort. The denim softens up nicely with little wear and will break in yielding natural fades and contrast marks. This medium-rise skinny fit is constructed to minimize any gaping at the lower back and like any raw jeans the fit will develop over the first 20 wears. Construction details include double flat felled back and inseam, custom hand-set copper hardware, hand-branded leather patch, and a traditional chain stitch hem. (We shall put up fit photos in the coming weeks. In the meantime please refer to our sizing guide) Shop Railcar Vixen x037 Skinny Women's Jeans
  14. We just received the first drop from 3sixteen's Summer' 17 lineup with two lightweight and remarkably soft shirts getting us prepped for the warmer months ahead. First off is the Navy Waffle Knit Work Shirt. The fabric is loomed in Japan and as the name suggests has plenty of texture. This shirt features the 3sixteen trademark crosscut back yoke and also has enamel coated buttons designed to chip and age with wear. Next up is the Faded Blue Utility Work Shirt. This lightweight Japanese flannel has a sun-faded worn-in texture, is super soft and will be easy to wear on a hot day. The horn buttons have been burnt for both colour and texture.

  15. By the way the xx-22oz-013 arrives next week and a month later the x011 in a new 17 oz weight. Both come in the modified slim tapered fit with a smidgen extra thigh space and narrower leg opening. These jeans and fit modifications have been part of over a year's discussion between me and PBJ (and possibly other retailers) on costly trips to Japan, Berlin and Paris. The 17 oz. x011 was my idea and was going to be a collaboration. Minimums with PBJ on collabs are prohibitively high, exacerbated by the strong Yen (and woefully weak GBP). Rather than keep it on hold until I was in a position to commit I suggested to PBJ they make it a general release for all retailers (including Japanese ones) and that i would buy what I need. It is worth pointing out the scale of not only fabric production but also legendary indigo-dyeing techniques by PBJ. They still manage to deliver this at a lower price point than other Japanese brands we carry in store. I do not see them disappearing from the denim market place any time soon. Customers literally drool over what they make it is so good.
