Details Of The New Denim Jacket
The Bandida denim jacket is a follow-up on their exciting El Patron 1 & 2, and Wabash Triple Pleated denim jackets. As always, the Bandida denim jacket is designed with references to authentic workwear styles, but with a modern twist.
The slim-fit jacket features on the front two pockets with round-shaped flaps. Both pockets are decorated with a special embroidery which is also used on their El Patron 1 & 2 jackets. The jacket is entirely stitched with Tobacco thread. The buttons are classic YKK laurel leaves versions. On the back, they used double pleats and a cinch back.
The Selvedge Fabric From Italian Denim Mill Berto
The right-hand unwashed selvedge fabric comes from the Italian Berto mill. Berto was founded in 1887 in Bovolenta, a small town in the province of Padova, through the entrepreneurship of the two founding brothers: Giuseppe and Egidio Berto. Their bond with this territory is very strong, the Berto company production is there in Bovolenta.
Berto has 3 continuous, dyeing lines, 2 indigo, and 1 sulphur. They allow them to have several color casts and therefore produce transverse products that can be customized. Continuous investments and advanced software guarantee precise, online control of the dyeing process, ensuring uniformity of shades, dye fastness, and thus a superior quality product.
Berto has 48, high energy-efficient looms, and with their Berto Blue Selvedge division, they produce selvedge fabrics. All the Blue Selvedge fabrics are realized by the old Picanol shuttle looms, original of the 1950s, specifically restored and renovated by master craftsmen that brought them back and preserved their ancient processing techniques.
