    THE M1 RELAXED PANTS IN VT- DOUBLE PLY LINEN - OVERDYED MAROON
    1 / 1 made specially for one customer who had already bought two pairs of the current season in grey and black.

    For the FW18 season, we released a new pants. The M1- relaxed pants in Overdyed heavy cotton.
    The pants was based on the original M1 Slim Pants but with a more relaxed fit throughout the leg.
    The pants has been selling very well for us with one customer buying both the grey and the black version released earlier this season.
    This is what he said to us after buying the first pair:

    Hi Zam,
    Received them today. I have to say, it's been quite a long time since I last put on an article of clothing that felt like it was made exactly for my body. The cut is perfection...so so hard to come by for me. I'll certainly be purchasing a pair in grey in the coming weeks.
    I'm wondering - do you take custom orders on jeans/pants? I recently had the thought of looking around for something minimalist like this, only in some kind of dark maroon color. Just curious.

    Anyway, I hope you keep doing what you're doing.

    Best,
    (Name Withheld)


    He ordered the second pair in grey, and after then he decided to pull the trigger on a custom pair in maroon.
    We sent him samples, he selected two fabrications. after much discussion, we advised him to go ahead with the double ply linen as we felt it most durable and appropriate for the pants.
    Also this fabric has special significance for us. it was one of the two main fabrics in our first collection. this is the lat of the fabric and we are happy to use it for a special project for a special customer.





    [​IMG]
    The original double ply linen was black, so the process of making the pants required us to sew the pants with a maroon thread (as shown here) so that after de-coloring the pants and redyeing, the pants would match perfectly with the thread

    The de-coloring bath is prepared and the pants is immersed into the bath of hot water.



    [​IMG]
    The de-coloring agent i is then added to the bath with the pants in it and the process of discharging the color has began.



    [​IMG]
    Here is the pants with the color being removed

    [​IMG]
    After the color has been completely removed, the pants is then rinsed to remove all the residue of the de-coloring agent and preparation for the dyeing process.

    [​IMG]
    The dyebath is prepared with a solution of salt/ water and a special mix of 3 parts rubine and one part deep grey dye to get us the rich maroon color we need.



    [​IMG]
    The pants is then added to the solution and the dyeing process has began.



    [​IMG]
    The pants is agitated in the dye bath for about 45 minutes of constant stirring, to give all areas of the pants a rich, deep color. Sodium carbonate is then added to the solution as a bonding agent to bond the dye permanently to the fabric.
    In this second stage the temperature of the bath is increased to enhance the richness of the color.



    [​IMG]
    After the completion of the dyeing process, the pants is then rinsed to remove all excess dye and salt residue from the garment.



    [​IMG]
    Ah.......the finished product. a rich, deep color that can only be achieved with wonderful linen fabric



    [​IMG]
    Here is the finished pants. Fabric selected, cut, sewn, de-colored, recolored to the desired shade, washed, dried, ironed and ready to be packed and shipped to a customer who will enjoy this special product for years to come.

    We are always working to bring you the best. It is the middle of the FW18 season, but we felt like our great items were not presented to you in the best format we could and that crucial fit and imaging details were missing from your viewing pleasure with regards to our products.
    Upon this we have decided to retool the entire web-store with higher quality images that gives you a clearer and better understanding of our products.

    Zam Barrett - Outerwear / Tops / Bottoms has been completely retooled with higher quality images that gives a better view of all the products in both fit and detail.

    We are in the process of working on Category M ( the PANTS section is complete )so please bear with us as we retool all areas of the webshop.

    Below are some if the new images that are now up.
    We trust that you will like it and the quality of the layout will be just as good as the products themselves
