Tender Co. Denim

Recommended Posts

EDIT! @srudy and @AlientoyWorkmachine I'm so sorry- I just took a closer look and you're both completely right- this is indeed the Old North Cross Weave Indian Black jacket. :blush:

It's a really nice one, and as Alientoy says this photo looks a little darker than the garment in real life. At least I can say that it too comes up slimmer than the woad standard denim version, so should fit you ok Srudy. This fabric was particularly hard to sew into the tight angles of this jacket, so I don't expect to repeat it, and there were only 12 pieces made- great find! 

I'm so sorry for the mixup, I should have looked more closely before posting. As I said, :blush:

@rodeo bill Thank you for the details on both! I’d be fortunate to get either and have been looking for a 900. I am so excited either way! Should arrive today and I’ll give you all an update!

@rodeo bill I've never seen that logwood dyed version - it looks great too. I know you did a release of the Woad ones last year which I missed out on, do you ever plan to make more 900's - other dyes or even just unborn? The one I've got has a long life ahead of it but I do love the pattern of that jacket.

Alrighty, so here it is…

Tender Co type 900 x Old North size 4

im very happy with it. Took a chance on the sizing since I typically wear a 2 or 3 in tender but this works, especially with the side cinches pulled tight.

nice: that's the volume I'd like, with good sloppy shoulder: approx a 7 needed for me then ...

Found these on grailed in my size, unworn and boxed.

comfortable out of the box but a bit noisy as the leather is quite dry so will give them a good oil in the next couple of days.

I just got a 461 baste pocket shirt, and this fabric is quite something.

It's gonna be interesting to see how the indigo fades.

first pair of tender and i love it

type 136 19oz walnut

really unique and subtle brown hue. the cut was exactly what i was looking for to round out the collection. 

@rodeo bill was this garment dyed in the walnut? also can i expect a standard amount the stretch in the waist with these? I usually target washed waist measurements closer to 29 inches which put me between sizes. this size 2 with 15 inch flat waist fits exactly how i want but just curious on what to expect. my guess is that it will shrink back after washes? thanks for all your hard work!

Thank you so much for this, I'm delighted you're enjoying your new jeans! Yes indeed the jeans are garment dyed in walnut, so as they fade you'll get some blue from the indigo weft yarn as well as a softening of the brown. And yes, these will stretch a bit- they've had a hot wash in the walnut dyeing process which shrinks them down fully, but they'll stretch out with some wear, and back in with washing. It's a very forgiving fabric :-)

Type 900 production just teased on IG, can't wait!

@rodeo bill  any chance we may be lucky enough to get the donegal blanket lining with this iteration? 

 

thanks for noticing! I've got a couple of nice options coming along for this, but not the donegal blanket lining I'm afraid, that was just for the 10 years production and I don't want to make those less special by repeating them. These will be very nice though, I promise! More soon

As promised, following from some unlined, unborn denim 900 jackets here are a couple more options. This is the lined version, dyed with tan wattle. The liner is made from the same ecru heavy wool woven for tennis ball shells. It's extremely thick and quite stiff, with a lovely texture which will soften up with some wear. The folded fabric is too thick to sew buttons through, so the liner buttons are riveted jeans fly buttons:

And here's an unlined version, dyed with Indian Black, which gives the inside of the denim a cool grey cast and leaves the outside almost black:

The liner is removeable?

I'm no expert, but I assume the liner is removable cause there's a photo of it without the jacket, the earlier versions has a removable liner and also the store site says it's removable.

^ from the Stores... 'Lined jackets have a fully removable body liner cut from heavy ecru wool woven in England for tennis balls'

It'd be good to see a close up of the actual fastening William if you can
