Story MFG

Recommended Posts

Any love for story mfg? I like a lot of their stuff. I especially like their use of natural dyes and oversized/relaxed fits. 

Just gave these a first wash. They’ve been dyed with natural indigo and the construction is excellent.

I have a pair of their natural indigo dyed/hand loomed trousers and a natural indigo dyed short sleeve shirt from when they first started but haven't kept up. Trousers look good, NEI.Nor

Agreed they look really good @Nei.Nor - your fit is spot on... what is your shirt?  

IIRC they were getting their early denim from India with some tempting natural indigo jeans and I remember nearly going for what sounds like @lance's shirt but they were out of my size. Think they were selling these from a barge/houseboat on the Thames at the time and experimenting a lot. Looks like they're cutting a trendier edge with other items as well these days.

@MJF9 the shirt is tender.

They seem to get a lot of their fabrics from India and work closely with producers both there and Thailand as well. They do a good job of covering it all on Instagram stories. I really like the khaki dye they’ve used for this season, which they’ve apparently worked to produce for some years.

ok, it's driving me nuts! What were their names, a guy and a gal and I remember the barge and the hand loomed, hand dyed cloth from India, now that you mention them, MJF9.

Would be interesting to see how these developed over time @lance… was your shirt called a 'shore shirt' by any chance?

Since the reurgence of this brand, I have looked for both the trousers and shirt but to no avail! I only wore the shirt once and the trousers, never. I’ll keep looking and if I find either/both, I’ll post pics for reference. I don’t recall the name but the shirt was also, I believe, hand loomed as well as Ai dyed. Bobbin and Katy?

Hello!

Lovely to see this thread on here and @lance I remember you well! It was early people like you who helped us find our feet and encouraged us to keep moving. That shirt you're talking about was absolute hell on earth to make (iirc it had over 50 natural ingredients in the vat).

 

@MJF9 Thanks for starting this - have we spoken?

@bobbin_storymfg it was actually @Nei.Nor above who kicked the thread off with a fine pair of your natural indigo. We swapped emails re a ahore shirt some years back but my size had sold out. Would be great to see some faded examples of your early jeans on here!

Good to hear from you, bobbin - happy to hear the early purchases helped and that you're still going strong! 50 natural ingredients in the vat - well done!! The texture of the shirt is special, too. I see you’re still offering the Sundae jacket; and looking better than ever with the Floral Repairs!
