Left Field NYC Fall/Winter 2013 – Raw Denim Lineup

New York-based Left Field NYC has been featured here plenty of times before, most notably in our recent review of their popular Chelsea fit. Helmed by founder Christian McCann, the brand and its owner are passionate about taking Japanese fashion influences and putting a distinctly American twist on them. The Fall/Winter 2013 raw denim lineup is exemplary of that motivation, and it’s sure to please both new customers and long-time fans.

Each of the three new options come in a 15 Oz. weight, but the denim differs greatly between them. The first is a selvedge from the well-known USA-based Cone Mills that features a soft hand and looser weave. The second is a selvedge from Kuroki Mills in Japan, with a tighter weave compared to the Cone Mills and a resulting rougher hand.

Finally, the third option is the “Black Maria“, featuring a selvedge from Collect Mills in Japan. Highlighted by a sulfur-dyed warp and deep black weft, the Black Maria also has a bit of a backstory as explained by the brand:

For miners at the turn of the 20th century, the Black Maria acted as both an ambulance and as a hearse. In small coal towns of Pennsylvania, the wives and children of miners knew that this black covered wagon could bring nothing good. When there was an accident in the coal mines the Black Maria would roll down the streets of the town and drop the bodies of the dead in front of their homes.

All three of the Fall/Winter 2013 raw denim lineup options are featured in Left Field NYC‘s 1950’s inspired straight leg Greaser fit and the slimmed down Chelsea fit, with a narrower overall design and lower rise. They’re available right now on the brand’s freshly redesigned online shop, so be sure to take a look at the details below and then head on over to their website.
