Newly released from European fashion giant Topman, is a small, 3-piece collection aimed at the denim head crowd. The brand has used selvedge denim in the past, however this is the first time they’re using denim from a mill they’re actually willing to mention.
The denim in question is a lightweight 12oz. denim from Kurabo Mills which they used to make a denim jacket as well as 2 pairs of jeans. The jacket takes on a more fashion forward and minimal approach with a hidden placket and jetted hand pockets. The jeans come in both raw and washed versions with minimal styling and a slim fit.
Though the brand is generally known for its modern street aesthetic and low price-point, the small collection falls into their Topman LTD line and is a step up with both jeans retailing for $150 and the jacket retailing for $170. How these will stand up and fade over time is the question. Also, will such a large retailer sourcing from a niche selvedge denim mill like Kurabo cause shortages for smaller clients? Like the fades, only time will tell.
You can find the collection at the Topman website.
