The prolific guys of Makr did the unthinkable, finishing a crave-worthy fieldbag firmly rejecting the usual synthetic look. This great field bed exhibits a shell made of 100% Italian organic slub selvage denim and Japanese chambray cotton in the inside insultaed with a thick layer of APEX climashield, which ultimately renders it to withstand down to 20°F. All this rolled up and tied down with leather straps and pulls made from the legendary Chromexcel hides bye Horween.
Edwin Jeans work with Berlin store Burg & Schild on their fifth anniversary ‘Black Collection.’ A limited run of 50, the brand lend their classic five pocket style this time constructed of 14oz Black/Black Red Listed Selvedge denim from Japan’s Kaihara mill. Plenty of interesting detail here. Black twill, printed and numbered pocket bags, hand painted black copper donut buttons designed to fade to their original colour over time, hidden back pocket rivets, hand embossed vegetable tanned leather patch and a sweet bonus by way of a handmade tote bag formed from recycled military ground sheets. A nice collaboration and a rare opportunity to get hold of some solid black selvedge jeans, available soon, more over here.
Nezumi Denim Co. may be an infant of the denim world, but the man behind it, David Campo, is certainly not. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden, the premium micro-denim brand is the brainchild of the man behind Sleezy Teez, who has a good 10 years worth of fashion design and production under his belt; Campo’s list of contracted clients include the likes of H&M and Carlings. Starting off less than a year ago as nothing more than a project to make limited jeans, the project-turned-brand has now flourished into a full lineup and much praise from the public, with his N 0-2-50 model as the brand’s main attraction. The name ‘Nezumi’ translates from Japanese to ‘Rat,’ and is taken from the fabled hero, Nazumi Kozō – Japan’s own version of Locksley’s Robin Hood. With an aspiration to create quality handcrafted denim jeans, Nezumi Denim Co. continues to produce using high-grade materials and a veteran team. The jeans are now available at Sivletto, and the brand also offers collaborative T-shirts and accessories. Source: Denimhunters
For some, the weight of their denim is everything. If numbers matter when it comes to your jeans then Lee 101 has something for you. A small selection of goods made from their 230z denim “premium quality narrow loom selvage fabric” milled in Japan. Having seen their 101z jeans in this weight close-up I can tell you these mean business. Most definitely a winter months fabric, these thick, heavy jeans have a smooth look to the weave, a tight denim with a slight sheen and enough rigidity to head off down the shops on their own. The fabric is also available in a tote, holdall and backpack all with leather trim. Take a look.
Kith recently collaborated with bag company Herschel Supply Co. on an ultra-durable backpack. Built with selvage denim and a durable Cordura camo fabric, the classic pack features a chambray main interior compartment with a soft black fur elastic laptop sleeve.

Backpack will release this Friday at 11 a.m. EST with a price tag of $120 USD.
One of Dolbeau's core principles are Design. "We are a company that cares deeply about design. We could have aimed to build a better espresso machine or a better stapler - perhaps a better Snuggie. But we love clothing design - it's our passion, and it's our mission to bring it to you. So we turned our passion towards men's accessories - those accoutrements which, when done right, perfectly complete a man's ensemble. You see it every time you run your paws along a Dolbeau product. We just care. So many of our choices are fuelled by design. It's why your adolescent self always preferred Wolverine (high-quality, superbly engineered "Adamantium" claws) to Cyclops (über-dorky laser-visor, probably made in China), or why you preferred young Pamela Anderson to…older Pamela Anderson. It's why your adult self eschews a standard dress shirt's sad little plastic cuff buttons in favour of bespoke cufflinks, hewn from whalebone.
