Denham The Jeanmaker X Barbour Collaboration
Denham the Jeanmaker just released their latest collaboration with Barbour. The partnership is a celebration of English heritage as Jason Denham (founder of Denham the Jeanmaker) grew up near to the Barbour factory in South Shields.
“I’ve loved Barbour ever since I was a child in Northern England, where I grew up near to the Barbour factory. Our collection incorporates the best of our worlds, fusing their motorcycle inspirations and signature wax cotton with Denham’s distinctive Italian-made denim”, says Jason Denham.
The Collab Collection
The collaboration collection features a range of jackets, jeans, t-shirts and sweatshirts. In the collection both signatures of the brands are coming together. So motorcycle details and wax cotton from Barbour are combined with Denham’s Italian made denim.
The collab artwork combines the denim brand scissors logo with a black cat, inspired by Northern England myth from 1805. It says that one night, a local militia volunteer fled from a vicious black cat. The incident mobilised the local army to guard the area against this feared cat, and the tale became a local legend.
It was the year 1936 when Duncan Barbour introduced in the Barbour collection a one-piece wax cotton suit called the Barbour International. As the name already suggests it was developed specifically for the 1936 International Six Day Trials (ISDT) event, most famously worn by actor Steve McQueen in the ISDT during 1964. Today, a separate stand-alone brand, Barbour International celebrates this long and rich motorcycling heritage. Men’s and women’s collections are inspired by the biker look.
