Yesterday I received an email about the two previous Pepe ‘Miner’ Jeans posts. This time from Trevor Lough, Trevor was 12 years the art director at Pepe Jeans. He still also owns the jacket after all these years. It’s now 16 years old and never washed yet! Through all the years of hard wearing the jacket got some characteristic damages; the neck label is destroyed, a massive cigarette burned in the cuff and it also has a small flick-knife slash in one of the front plackets.

All in all it’s so great that a lot of people are digging in their private denim collection to show their classic Pepe Miner Jeans item with pride! Thanks a lot for sharing Trevor, Cheers! Who’s next?
