Grivec Bros. Limited Edition Sylvester Chino
Grivec Bros. just released a new limited edition of their Locker style. This chino design is the brand’s take on the authentic chino but with a more modern twist. For this special run, they experimented with yellow paint for a unique look. The outcome is the Sylvester edition, made with American selvedge fabric.
The Special Yellow Paint On The Welt Of The Back Pockets
The brothers behind Grivec Bros., Marcel, and Roger Grivec, always like to take the next step with their denim brand. This time they used for the first time paint on their jeans. Yellow paint on the welt of the back pockets. It took a while before they were happy with the end result that was ready for this special edition. The yellow paint is added to the Locker by hand.
They picked the yellow paint color because that’s one of their favorites to match with rigid (dry) jeans. Next to white and burgundy. On top of that, yellow was also the main color in the identity of their Jeanspaleis store, which they used to run for 30+ years.
The Details Of The Locker Style
The Grivec Bros. Locker is a classic chino silhouette with a fitted top block and tapered legs. It’s made with a 14oz American woven rigid selvedge fabric with red ID. A fabric that will age nicely with wear. It will show you in the end your lifestyle. Like the rest of their unwashed pairs of blue jeans.
The Locker is designed with slanted pockets on the front and welted back pockets. The welt of these pockets is painted, yellow. Over time, the yellow paint will age and will fade just like the rest of the chino.
The chino features a clean taped inside construction. On the closure, they used their 13-star buttons (more about the history of these buttons here). The waistband is made using a center-placed woven brand label. The top block is cut and sewn. And there’s a special embroidered belt loop on the chino, showing the GB logo.
Limited Run Made In Chevremont
The Grivec Bros. Locker Sylvester edition is made in a limited run of 30 pieces in Chevremont, The Netherlands. Each pair comes with a blue-grey mining towel pungel. A reference to the mining area where they’re based, but also linked to the mining roots of the brand.
