Sugar Cane has released its first new jean model in three years, the new "2013" 11oz summer-weight jean. This is a rinsed selvedge rope-dyed denim made of a combination of American and Zimbabwe cotton for a soft hand-feel and a vintage look. These come in a fit that is between a straight and a slim cut jean. With the popularity of the 2009 jean from Sugar Cane we're sure the 2013 will be a future classic.
Mister Freedom just hit us with the hottest chambray in years. This one is made in Japan with a specially designed medium weight chambray, maple brown corozo nut buttons, and olive green stitching throughout. It really is the perfect chambray shirt for us, and the way the placket meets the selvedge ID near the bottom of the shirt is a type of genius that only Mister Freedom can offer.
Lastly we have a new Glen Check printed chambray shirt from Iron Heart. This shirt starts off as a gray chambray that is then printed with a fine glen check pattern with a fugitive dye that comes off with regular wear and washings. It's a rugged shirt that's going to look great over time.
Flat Head Spring Collection of Flannels, Wallets, & More
We've just received this season's first shipment from Flat Head.
Leave it to Flat Head to produce the nicest spring weight flannel shirt ever, available in three colors and perfect for all seasons. They've taken the pattern used on their heavyweight winter flannels and produced a lightweight slack woven flannel that breathes very well and is still soft to the touch without the brushed interior (which reduces breathability).
We're going all in with Flat Head's leather accessories and jackets over this next year, and we've just received their new beautiful horsehide bi-fold wallets. Fully hand sewn in Nagano (Japan) using the best horsehide from Japan's famed Shinki tannery. These wallets will last you a lifetime and will age and darken with regular wear.
We've also received a full restock of leather bracelets, key hooks, all jean models, leather belts, blank t-shirts in white and black, heavy merino socks, and solid leather wallet chains in tan and black.
So the Imperial Prospectors are like a slightly more tapered Shearers with a lower rise? How different is the denim?
Yes, that is correct. They basically improved the fit of the shearer, and the denim is great. Also, the jean is 100% produced in japan where as the original shearer was made in Australia before production was moved to Japan.
We'd like to interrupt the usual dark, heavy, selvedge denim news with something a little different. We're releasing our first non black or indigo jean. 3sixteen+ has released a new skinny fit jean for women in a natural un-dyed and unbleached Cone Mills pima cotton denim in their 77BSP fit. This jean starts out off-white and will age as it darkens naturally. The jean can be bleached or washed to get it back to its original state, or you can wear it until it looks like a mechanic's smock.
We've then taken ten pairs of the 577BSP jean and had Rain Delisle, Darn-It!'s master tailor, tie-dye them in various colors in San Francisco. Each jean was dyed individually using Procion MX colors to create its own pattern and color so no two pairs are alike. These are limited to ten pairs and available via email, phone order, or in-store at SESF for $295 a pair.
Check the online store for a full spec list, high-res photos, and measurements for the 577BSP jean.
