Levis Vintage Collection   Fall/Winter 2010

This Vintage Collection draws inspiration from the Levi’s archives, and for this upcoming season, a portion of the collection has already arrived in stores. Some of the key, timeless pieces include nautical inspired striped t-shirts in both long and short-sleeves. All pieces are made out of premium cotton, save the long-sleeve version which is made from heavy-weight cotton for the cooler months. Aside from t-shirts, a classic cable knit navy sweater originally a part of the label’s 1950’s “Sportswear” collection will prove that it has withstood the test of time, and will continue to do so. All pieces in this collection are limited in numbers, and will be available from plaice’s such as urban outfitters.

Carhartt’s gone vintage!

Posted in Threadz with tags , , on June 1, 2010 by StreetLife

Carhartt been around for longer than you think. The Carhartt Heritage line is dedicated to Carhartt’s long history as a reputable workwear brand. The line is made of classic materials and colours to create that authentic vintage look and feel. This effect is made possible by special vintage washings and dyes only available in the Heritage line. All prints are reproductions of original graphics that honor the legacy of Carhartt Inc. workwear.

Retro-style details accompanied by a special Heritage hangtag highlight the exceptional character of this line. A replica of the brand’s first logo, a train car superim- posed on a heart – Carhartt, forms the Heritage label and helps to distinguish the Heritage line from the rest of the Carhartt collection. Pants are made from original fabrics and though they are based on Carhartt’s historic work pants, the cut has been reworked to suit the contemporary consumer. Sweaters are made from classic materials and printed with traditional ink for authentic character. Vintage-style yarn sweaters and t-shirts are made from slub yarn; a special yarn produced using traditional methods. The soft, thick nubs of the yarn appear as irregularities in the woven fabric, giving it a distinctive knitted surface and retro impression. A new printing process combined with traditional textile ink re-creates the appearance of vintage prints. This way, prints are fused into the fabric and don’t have the rubbery shine of modern designs. Hems and seams are stitched in time-honored fashion, employing the same patterns and methods used fifty years ago. Additionally, some items are washed for a faded effect.
