London based denim artisans Blackhorse Lane Atelier continue their #craftjeansrevolution by collaborating with one of the world’s finest shirtmakers, Turnbull & Asser for an exclusive pair of jeans. Forming part of the Weekend Collection, with “off-duty sensibility” in mind, the jeans are a limited release which celebrates the collaboration of the two brands.
With similar core values including quality, community and eco-consciousness, the question of working together was more ‘when’ than ‘if’ for both brands. The result is the Weekend Jean, which has a medium front rise with a relaxed silhouette that straightens from the knee down. Made to be ideal for daily wear, they feature a non-branded patch on the reverse which mirrors that of Turnbull & Asser’s indigo cashmere shirt cloth.
Made from 14o.z raw indigo selvedge denim from Kurabo mill, the fabric is a cotton 3×1 right-hand twill created on old traditional shuttle looms. Kurabo was the first mill to weave denim in Japan and by rope dyeing 100% pure indigo, the process reduces chemicals, water and energy usage. The cotton used also includes 20% recycled fibers made with pre-consumer waste, so you’re getting an eco-conscious jean from two brands who care about environmental impact.
Available for £245 (~$320) via Turnbull & Asser.
