WELL WORN: 3SIXTEEN ST-100X AFTER EIGHTEEN MONTHS

September 6th, 2012

With over eighteen months of everyday wear, three separate repairs, one beach wash, one tub soak, and one machine wash, it’s time to hang this well worn pair of 3sixteen’s ST100X denim on the rack and start a new… that is, at least until summer comes around. This has been one of my favourite pair of denim to date. With that said, I say that every time I wear a pair in and leave them to develop character over this many months. The indigo has almost disappeared from the most worn parts of the denim revealing the grain of the weave in the denim along the whiskers, combing, and any other creases. The denim has become so soft and lush, completely the opposite of the raw version I began to break in over 18 months ago. There are a few holes, and places that will need repairing and reinforcing on the darning machine before summer starts, but until then, I’ll leave the photos to do the rest of the talking…

ITEMS OF INTEREST: THE SUPERIOR LABOR AND NAP VILLAGE

September 4th, 2012

Last season I had the opportunity to head down south of Japan for the first time, heading out of Tokyo, and past Osaka, to the prefecture of Okayama to visit the workshop of Superior Labor. Tucked away in the hills of Okayama sits an old schoolhouse, surviving the destruction of war, Superior Labor have converted this historic building into a workshop, and office whilst bringing new life to the surrounding area with a small village, where they house production of their brands as well as, extra workshops, showrooms, as well as a small café, and store.

I’ll let the images speak for themselves, giving you an insight into the handmade processes of Superior Labor’s products be it leather goods, luggage, or clothing for this coming season, as well as the surrounding area that engulfs the brands location. I’d like to thank Kawai, Yoshimi, Taka, and the rest of the Superior Labor team, for their hospitality and ongoing support, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for this season’s collection from the brand as it will soon begin to arrive.
