The First Pair Of Jeans
Brut is known for their incredible vintage collection which they sell via their store in Paris, but also online. Now, they’re going to launch their own produced pairs of rigid selvedge jeans. You can already pre-order them, but they will be available this June.
Made With Nine Vintage Machines
The soon to launch Brut jeans will be made in Paris as they collected and repaired nine vintage machines from all around the world to make the best denim pants in France. The list of machines is as follows;
1 – Singer (chain stitch hemming)
2 – Durkop ( 2 needles lockstitch)
3 – Reece 101 (buttons)
4 – Juki (interlock)
5 – Juki (belt loop bar-tacked)
6 – Brother (flat seam)
7 – Reece (pocket bar-tacked and belt loop bar-tacked)
8 – Rimoldi (belt loop denim)
9 – Aeg (mechanical rivets)
The Details Of The Jeans
The jeans is based on vintage pairs of Levi’s 501s from 1955. They spent more than a year working out all the details. The jeans is made of an exclusive Italian 13oz redline selvedge denim fabric. It’s a right-hand fabric, which will twist to the right when washed to achieve the same leg twisting as the originals. It has metal buttons and copper rivets. The jeans is stitched with Tobacco stitching.
The patch is placed on the left instead of the common right position. And, they used Levi’s arcuate stitching on the back pockets but stitched them upside down.
Made In Paris, France
The Brut jeans are made one by one in their workshop in Paris. They will not be available via other retailers, so to get a pair you have to jump to their site, or to their shop in June.
