Everyone needs a good pair of jeans. They’re a fashion staple and are yet to wane since becoming popular with teenagers in the 1950’s.
With so many different brands around these days, it’s sometimes hard to see the wood for the trees; what’s good? How much should you spend? Which style is right for me?
It’s difficult to answer all those questions in one short blog post, but basically always go for quality over cost, function over fashion. A good quality pair of jeans will grow with wear, evolving into something unique by the end of their life. It’s a beautiful thing…
Enter Hawksmill Denim Co.
We already showcased this awesome brand here, so we won’t go into their history now. Instead we want to focus on the super-high levels of quality that have gone into crafting the ‘Loose Tapered Japanese Selvedge Jeans’ and the ‘Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt’.
The jeans are constructed using a sturdy 14oz red listed selvedge denim, which gives them a lovely weight and rigidity, yet leaves them soft to the touch and flexible enough for easy movement. But this pair is all about the details 0 the stitching, the copper rivets, the sail cloth pocket lining, and of course that glorious red selvedge…
But Hawksmill don’t just do denim – their long sleeved cotton shirt is as equally well made, featuring the same levels of love and craftsmanship throughout.
The buttons are wonderfully subtle, especially against the blue-ish grey 100% cotton fabric.
And best of all, Hawksmill are British – from Brighton to be exact, so go support your local, and check out the full range available right now on the Hawksmill website: hawksmill.com
