Have you ever looked back on a major life event or journey and wanted a physical memento of it, ideally in garment form? One that truly evokes and encapsulates the memories you have attached to that moment in time, and no, I’m not talking about a cheap and poorly printed “leavers” hoodie you’d overpay for at the end of university. Instead, an item you that could easily slot into your regular rotation with details tastefully incorporated into it. Native American-owned US brand Ginew ticks all those aforementioned boxes with its latest Thunderbird Jacket.
Made in Los Angeles from a 12 oz. Japanese Kurabo raw selvedge denim, this Lee 101-inspired silhouette with custom Ginew hardware features an abundance of details all derived from the emotions of an 11-day epic road trip the brand took from their ancestral homelands of the Great Lakes to the Pacific North West. Underneath that rich brown corduroy collar, you’ll find a custom stitched design which is also featured on a collaborative wool blanket from the brand, but the real standout for us is the chain-stitched thunderbird under the left cuff, which will be permanently etched in as the jacket fades over time- a truly wonderful touch.
Available now from Ginew priced at $385
