The Dutch G-Star brand was started in 1989 under the name Gapstar as a new denim initiative. A few years after their kick-off, when they were going global, they changed their name from Gapstar into G-star because of the American Gap brand. G-Star is now a very big, well known and respective denim brand worldwide. In my private denim collection their are some key items, sort of vintage in the meantime, from their more than 25 years of G-star history. Today I want to highlight 3 pieces which are a kind of cult nowadays and for me personally one the best ever made by the Gapstar / G-Star company.
The 3 Gapstar / G-star items;
- Gapstar US Second jeans. Selvage jeans made of left hand fabric. Dated from +/- 1994-1995. Classic 5 pocket jeans. Sold as pre-washed jeans.
- G-star US Lumber jeans. Selvage jeans made of right hand fabric. Dated from 1997-1998. Classic 5 pocket jeans with a cinch back. Sold as pre-washed jeans. They also had these as a rigid (unwashed) version.
- G-star US First jacket. Selvage jacket made of right hand fabric. Dated from 1997-1998. Classic trucker denim jacket. Sold as a rigid (unwashed) jacket. The jacket is still unwashed.
