We're happy to announce that the most anticipated collection of the year has just arrived. This is the first half of the delivery with the second half coming in about four weeks. There will be no restocks from these collections as everything Stevenson produces is cut to order. This delivery consists of chinos in two colors, gima yarn hoodies in two colors, and a tencel cloth MA-1 jacket.
It only took us seven years to start carrying chinos, but it was worth the wait. These Stevenson chinos are spot on in every area. Taking inspirations from both military and dress chinos with vintage elements such as rear slit pockets and a coin pocket that is aligned directly below the waistband. These are rinsed and come in a slim tapered fit and come in khaki or navy.
This is real chino cloth, as most chinos today are merely made of a flat cotton fabric, these have a bit of chatter within the fabric and feel and look like real vintage chino cloth.
Next up we have Stevenson's take on the classic MA-1 jacket but made in a combination of high density cotton twill and tencel cloth. These are super tightly woven fabrics that stay cool and have great wind resistance. The jacket comes complete with the classic MA-1 arm pocket, two snap buttoned hand pockets, a dual-clip zipper, and a slim fit.
Gima yarn fabric is one if the wildest Japanese textiles we've come across. Gima yarn is cotton which has had all of the moisture pulled out of it during the spinning process. This results in a yarn which stays very dry even in humid weathers, wicks moisture away from the body, and does not retain heat. This is a great example of early tech fabric. You can say that this is the only hoodie that actually keeps you cool. The yarn is then dyed in a mixture of indigo and/or sulfur to create an indigo or black color which then is mixed with sand colored gima yarns to create the specks of light you see through the indigo/black. This is a standout garment, the combination of color and type of yarn used to create such a simple piece is very impressive.
