The 40-40 Club is one of the most exclusive groups in all of sports, reserved only to major league baseball players who have a total of 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in a single season. Only four players belong: Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, and Alfonso Soriano. But thanks to the folks at Freenote Cloth, 80 more lucky denimheads can join the fold in their 40-40 club of limited release collabs with retailers Mildblend Supply Co. and AB Fits.
Both come in Freenote’s slim Rios fit (see our review here), have their own unique denims, and naturally, they’re only making 40 of each. Mildblend’s very nice version is made for Chicago’s brutal winters with a dark weft 14.5oz. cotton/wool blend denim from Yoshiwa Mills. It’s the same neppy fleck fabric we saw on their Rider’s Jacket from last fall and is priced at $265. AB Fits’s version is made for their home in San Francisco out of a 13.5oz. broken twill fabric also from Yoshiwa Mills in your standard indigo x white–it’s not live on their website yet, but should live today.
