Most of the people who follow my daily blog knows that I have a crush on old denim jackets. I’m always on the look out for some rare and cool vintage stuff to add to my private collection. Besides having an addiction for old embroidered Levi’s Big E jackets I have a weak for the best line ever made by the Italian denim company Diesel, their ‘Old Glory’ collection. Diesel Jeans was my first entry in the denim scene more than 20 years ago. I worked there for 6 years. Those were crazy times as Diesel became very popular worldwide. The ‘Old Glory’ line was something new in that time and very special. Diesel created a line with an authentic workwear inspired feeling. I always kept those special ‘OG’ items because they are special for me because they reminds me of my first steps into the blue indigo world. My ‘OG’ collection is pretty big but I’m still missing some pieces from this particular line. Every now and then I spot some of these vintage treasures and add them to my collection. Last week I got my hands on the ‘Morgan’ jacket from 1993. I already have this one in two other colours, black and green, but this ecru version was a good find. I know this particular jacket was also made in denim fabric and in brown. So still two to go for this one. Maybe I can add them too in my collection one day. But for now I’m very happy with this one, Only the Brave!
