In the early morning, there is an hour of complete darkness.... before dawn. This pitch-black gradually begins to reveal glimmers of light, revealing the day is about to begin! In a pitch-black brand new state, we introduce our vision for how the light can tell the story of our days.
In this collection, we have developed another signature denim. This 14oz 'Before Dawn' denim is black sulphur thread dye for both weft and warp and is completed many times to achieve one of the darkest tones we have seen. Both the warp and the weft and in complete darkness! The vertical texture is strong and has a subtle neppy feeling. With wear and wash, you'll see white highlights appear just like the start of dawn, exposing the areas of wear and beautiful texture.
Pitch black details:
The continuation of darkness is carried across the entire denim. From the specially dyed copper rivets that require 6 months of soaking to the black coated iron buttons, the hardware will gain a high contrast aged look in time as they oxidise and chip. The royal-inspired, gold-stamped deerskin leather patch is super soft and has an amazing texture under the sunlight. The pocket bags feature a black thread-dyed HBT fabric that's comfy against the skin and durable.
Sewn with vintage machines to achieve the ideal chain and single stitches we have created the ideal balance between vintage fading and durability. For the hand warmers and sleeve cuffs, a 5oz indigo thread dyed chambray fabric has been used for the lining. Stay cosy on those cool days! The front pleats feature extra heavyweight stitching as looking over most vintage Levis this area gets worn out! We even double-stitched this area and implemented our signature 'U' shape which also adds more strength than classic box-style construction.
This has a longer vertical length and slimmer sleeves than the vintage Levi's Type-2 denim jacket that will fit for a more modern look!
