I’ve just come back from a weekend in Amsterdam for a friends 30th and my jeans are looking about as tired and worse for wear as I do. So today, as part of my rest and recuperation I’ve been having a scout online for a new pair. I’m funny when it comes to denim though, I tend to wear one pair of jeans until they’re falling apart then move onto the next. Cost effective you might say, more like a bit scruffy I say!
Thankfully, I have been pleased to hear Nottingham based menswear brand Universal Works made their first foray into the jeans market last week with the superb ‘Workshop Denim Range’. I’ve been a big fan of Universal Works for a few years now and love their SS14 Cotton Trucker Jacket which I posted about here back in February.
The Workshop Range comes in a regular, straight and a slim, tapered fit that is my pick of the bunch. These jeans have been produced in limited numbers and are cut and stitched in England. They’re made with 13oz denim produced from cotton grown in Portugal on vintage looms and their indigo dye is designed to fade over time ensuring each pair will have a unique look. Quality britches indeed!
Want them? Head over to Brighton’s Peggs & Son who will also chuck in a free Universal Works canvass wallet with first five pairs purchased (what top folk).
