Warehouse’s Open Front Jumper is a Pre-1900s Denim Labor of Love

As the trends of the fashion world move through the wave of ’90s nostalgia to the early-2000s and encroach upon the present day, there are still others looking back. Warehouse isn’t just looking to the 20th Century, but the 19th Century with their Open Front Jumper.

Using a 12oz. selvedge denim with a deep shade of indigo peppered with flecks throughout, Warehouse cuts this piece in a shirt-jacket style with a riveted chest pocket as well as a front placket outfitted with metal buttons. The stitch count on this is on another level (specifically the level of pre-1900s sewing standards). Look closely and you’ll find that it’s also entirely single-needle stitched. And, no, this is not like the half-assed ‘single-needle tailoring’ hack jobs of big-box vacuum-sealed poly-bagged cardboard-stuffed dress shirts. Warehouse no doubt took the long way ’round in making this ‘jumper’, and you can see it in how wabi-sabi the stitching is.

Available for £339 (~$425USD) at Clutch Cafe.
