You ever go to one of those farm-to-table restaurants where the server tells you where each ingredient in your amazing dish comes from and it just makes the meal that much better? Me neither. But, assuming I had, I know that Grease Point Workwear‘s Work Trouser in 11 oz. Japanese Indigo Selvedge Canvas is the clothing version of that experience.
The indigo canvas is from Okayama, Japan, the wheat pocket bags come from Mt. Vernon Mills in Georgia, and the copper rivets and zipper are from Kentucky—even the thread is accounted for—coming from A&E in North Carolina. And of course, each pair is made in Grease Point’s small workshop in Seattle. This is the future not just of heritage fashion, but fashion in general—transparency.
And if you thought the attention to detail ended at material sourcing, you would be incorrect. With details like triple-stitched felled seams, one-piece selvedge fly, and ‘to be or to double knee’ reinforced knee panels, you’d think I was describing a pair of 1940s duck canvas carpenter pants. But then you see the relaxed taper, thigh knife pocket, and the oh-so-awesome ice blue selvedge ID and realize these aren’t your grand pap’s work pants.
