VINTAGE LEVI'S RED JEANS FOUND | PART II “HOLDEN”

this is the second pair of LEVI'S RED denim i found in my box. the “HOLDEN” must be from 2003 or earlier. it has a wide carpenter fit, a classic workpant with no backriser and a high hem. straight leg, bearing two unequal slash pockets and knife pocket on the left side leg, black sew-on suspender buttons and uneven belt loops. this HOLDEN is made from 10oz sulphur-dyed twill fabric which gives this special light blue color and worn out look. unfortunately the jeans got marks from storage – i do not know how this could happen. found the same HOLDEN but brand new in japan for 340 US $. it is apitty that it got a bit too small ... pics | LTG

VINTAGE LEVI'S RED JEANS FOUND | PART I “BILLY BOB”

i was searching for one of my vintage western shirts. so some days ago i was checking up one of some big ZARGES storage boxes in the basement, where i have a lot of clothes parked. stuff i won't wear at the moment or i am just collecting like vintage western shirts and boots, work boots, denim, t-shirts ... so i found 2 more than 10 years old LEVI'S RED jeans. i was so surprised how detailed these where made. today i will show you this very rare “BILLY BOB”. no selvedge, classic straight leg, a lot of zigzag stitched details, suspender buttons, ... tomorrow i will continue with my LEVIS'S RED “THE HOLDEN”. maybe i will find the original suspenders till tomorrow ... and damn, LEVI'S RED isn't payable today. check the prices @ LNCC ... unbelievable, there isn't a pant under 650 €. pics | LTG

SELVEDGE DENIM NECKTIES | BY HEPVILLE CUSTOM CLOTHING

as you know i am a fan of bow-ties. 2 months ago i bought the first neckties ever. both patterned: one camo and one with anchors – what else –, i learnt how to tie the “AMERICAN” way and just some days later i discovered HEPVILLE's DENIM SELVEDGE NECKTIES at facebook. it took me 3 weeks more to think about if these are must-haves. and indeed they are. each necktie is made of 8oz. selvedge denim, has a loop strap with selvedge details, are 57 inch/144 cm long and 2 9/16 inch/6,5 cm wide at the end. they are hand sewn shut with a hidden slip stitch. the blue one has white and red selvedge at both ends, the khaki beige and green neckties have white selvedge at the ends. for sure this stuff is handmade in germany by BELA the man behind HEPVILLE CUSTOM CLOTHING. check his ETSY shop there is much more great stuff like caps, vests f.ex. pics | LTG
