The Japanese Selvedge Fabric

For this special Grivec Bros. Locker chino, they used a 14oz unwashed Japanese selvedge fabric from the Collect Mill. The pink selvedge ID is a tribute to the Samurai culture in Japan. The fabric is woven from American cotton that was farmed in California. The chino is stitched with tobacco-colored thread for an authentic jeans look.

Details Of The Chino

The fit of the Locker chino is the same as their existing style, so it has a fitted top-block and tapered legs for a modern approach. The fly features their iconic 13 stars button, and a special button to fasten your chino extra, which is made of recycled coffee in sunny Portugal. They used these unique buttons also on the back of the chino for the pocket closures.

The front pockets of the chino have slanted pockets, just like the original chino style. On the waistband, which is extra lined for extra strength, they stitched their Grivec Bros. woven label. On one of their special belt loops, they added their GB logo embroidery for this celebration pair.

Other features of the chino are, unique cut and sewn top-block pattern, triangle stitching on the back pockets, and one of them feature a flap pocket.

Special Made Celebration Mining Towel

Each pair of Grivec Bros. jeans is wrapped in their special mining towels. These towels are made to refer to the mining period when their denim story started. The towel is woven with the colors of Limburg, the region where they’re located in the South of The Netherlands. It is outsourced in The Netherlands, but the chino itself is produced by hand in their denim atelier in Chevremont.
