LEFT FIELD NYC X FRANKLIN & POE ATLAS - 15.5 OZ. NIHON MENPU ORGANIC INDIGO SELVEDGE DENIM
"The LF NYC x F&P collaboration denim is finally here. We've been huge fans and (more importantly) friends of Left Field, so when Christian approached us about working together, we jumped at the chance.
Choosing the Atlas fit was a no-brainer. This might just be the best fit on the market right now. A relaxed top block provides plenty of room to move in the hips and thighs and keeps you covered on the backside when bending over. It's perfect for guys with bigger thighs, no need to worry about the jeans fitting too tightly. From there, the jeans taper all the way down to the leg opening. It's a fairly dramatic taper but it provides the perfect fit and silhouette by taking up all that excess fabric in the lower leg. The result is a pair of jeans that fits the natural shape of the body perfectly.
For the fabric, we knew we wanted something special. There were a number of options to choose from, but once we put our hands on this 15.5 oz. organic indigo selvedge denim from the famed Japanese mill Nihon Menu, we knew we'd found our fabric. The denim features a beautiful texture due to the tension of the shuttle looms during weaving. The warp is rope dyed indigo and starts out an inky color that will fade to a beautiful brighter hue over time. The weft is a natural organic cotton - not bleached - giving the denim that perfect vintage feel that marries up with the indigo warp perfectly.
As with all Left Field products, the devil's in the details. Bandana pocket bags, skull logo on the rivets and tacks, sewn-in belt loops, Universal Fastener hardware... it's all there. But the coup de gras is the insanely beefy 5 oz. vegetable tanned leather patch. It features a custom red foil embossed logo that rounds out the look and feel of this denim and will just get tougher and sexier with every wash.
We're incredibly proud to work with Left Field on this collaboration and we hope you love it as much as we do!"
FINE CREEK LEATHERS LEON CUSTOM LIGHT
"Fine Creek Leather's Leon Custom Light is made of a 1.3mm horsehide tanned in Himeji, Japan. Designer Yosikatsu Yamazaki is involved in every part of the process, from selecting the leather to working with the tannery to produce to his exact specifications using his own recipe. The Leon Custom features cut off epaulets and belt resembling the customization 1950s riders would do to their jaciets.
Each Leon jacket is made from a single hide in their Tokyo facility, by four skilled craftsmen. Because they use just one hide, every jacket has unique variations, even from the right to the left side, but that's intentional. These variations were found in the 1950s Perfecto that was used as the inspiration for the Leon Nostar."
MISTER FREEDOM SHOP TEE - FREEDOM BLACK
"Every Mister Freedom shop tee is designed and hand silk screened in-house. The Freedom tee plays a sly tribute to Steve McQueen and his love of Triumphs and Freedom.
The Stanley T-Shirt is an original MFSC pattern inspired by 1940's and 1950's undershirts. Named after Marlon Brando's character in A Streetcar Named Desire, this t-shirt evokes the same kind of style and fit. The fabric is a lightweight 100% cotton tubular knit jersey and the yarn will twist and torque with wash and wear, giving it that vintage t-shirt look."
WHITE'S BOOTS X FRANKLIN & POE MP SERVICE BOOT - 8" BLACK CHROMEXCEL
"The MP (Military Police) boot is modeled after American Infantry boots during WWII. The construction is hand lasted, hand welted, and hand bottomed. Not only can this boot be re-soled, but also rebuilt over time, differentiating itself from Goodyear Welted boots which can only be re-soled."
3SIXTEEN 6-PANEL CAP - CHARCOAL HBT
"The 3sixteen cap features 6-panels, and is low-profile and unstructured. It is made of a sturdy 100% cotton herringbone twill fabric".
Have a great day!
