These were inspired by original aprons used up until the 1960’s. Since 2012 Dawson Denim expanded their collection with jackets, jeans and bags. All the Dawson Denim products are personally tailored, each piece is one of a numbered run and in some cases very limited. All the patterns from their products are cut, graded and finished by hand. All are made in their own workshop in Brighton – UK using vintage sewing machines from the 1950’s. Today I want to highlight their great workwear inspired denim jackets.
