Dawson Denim have been forging their own British denim legacy for 10 years now, and to celebrate their first decade in the game, they’ve cooked up 3 special pair of jeans that really just encapsulates what the brand is all about.
Run by Scott Ogden and Kelly Dawson in the coastal city of Brighton, England, Dawson Denim makes end-tier raw selvedge denim goods and other clothing, all informed by years of experience in the denim industry and a collective passion for vintage and contemporary style. The brand’s new 10th Anniversary ‘DD026’ jeans are a testament to this, marking the milestone in style.
Made from 14 oz. 100% organic cotton plant-dyed selvedge denim with a white selvedge ID, the 10th Anniversary jean is available in 3 fits; Dawson’s recently updated ‘Wide Taper’ which has a roomy seat without an excessively high rise, and a taper from the knee down to reduce the hem opening; Women’s ‘Dawson Taper’ for the ladies, similar to the men’s Wide Taper but with a vintage, Monroe-esque fit; and the brand’s classic Wide Leg jeans, a full-legged silhouette with a large hem opening and cinch back.
Each of these fits allows the sanforized natural indigo denim shine, and you can expect authentically vintage fades with wear, shimmering tones of lighter indigo, charming roping on the waistband, yoke, and hems, and a fabric that will soften up beautifully over time. But what really makes them pop is the use of gold stitching thread, as opposed to Dawson’s usual stone thread. It really sets the whole jean off in a way befitting for a special edition jean.
Each pair of Dawson jeans is made by hand in their Brighton Workshop and retail space, dubbed The Garage, using vintage machinery and top quality Japanese fabrics, before being checked over and signed by their maker. These limited edition jeans also come with a special vegetable-tanned waist patch to commemorate the 1oth Anniversary (cotton version available for vegetarians and vegans).
