Hen’s Teeth originates from the wish to realize a timeless standard kit of cloths, anything you need contained in a bag. It is based on what history has always considered immortal icons, articles of clothing which are not temporary and, above all, strictly ‘Made in Italy’. The first Hen’s Teeth drop contains four classic items in a bag which every men need in his closet; handmade Italian socks, bandana, high quality made sweat and a pair of selvage jeans.

The Hen’s Teeth kit

The first item are Hen’s Teeth socks which are handmade in Italy, made with 100% handpicked organic cotton, without dyes and colorants.

The second item is a Hen’s Teeth bandana. The banada was first used by cowboys to keep away from dust, later it was used by bikers and pin-ups or just as workwear always maintaining a function of basic accessory in ages. As time went by it acquired different meanings from the changing of colours to the way of wearing it.

The third Hen’s Teeth item is a round neck raglan sleeve sweatshirt. A good heavy weight sweatshirt is the ultimate basic for every men. The sweat grew in popularity during the thirties as work- and sportswear and always stayed in fashion and culture. The sweat is made with minimal but rich details from 100% Italian fabric, oblique cotton fleece.

The last Hen’s Teeth item, but certainly not least, is a pair of selvage jeans. The jeans contains classic details and is made of rigid selvage fabric, made with old shuttle looms. The selvage is visible in the external joint of legs and it originates when the pick of the shuttle goes back and forth on the side trimming of the warp. The jeans will age over time and will show your own pattern. It will become one with your lifestyle and thus every pair will get its own unique character.
