Dawson is besides their family name also the name of their denim company. A company which made all of their products in their own specialist workshop in Brighton, East Sussex. Each piece comes with a “log book” inspired by the same document from the golden age of motoring. The ideal of being built to last has long been forgotten but they are proud to be able to offer a durability guarantee with each of their products. They use red line selvage from Japan, the red in selvage was introduced around the 1930’s to denote the highest quality. The mill they work with is family run and is over 100 years old. The Dawson family makes pure products with a lot of craftsmanship. Enjoy the impressions below.
