The Start Of The United Overalls Brand

The United Overalls brand is founded by Tom Burke and was inspired by his time working in several denim stores across London. While working there, he got inspired to start his own brand. Taking influences from early 20th century designs he wanted to make a pair of jeans that could live up to the standards of the Japanese masters while also being functional for life in London. That’s how the ED-1 style was born.

The Focus Of The UK Denim Brand

All the United Overalls jeans are made using denim produced in the UK using fabric weaved by Hewitt Heritage Fabrics. Based in Lancashire, the company uses two original 1950s Blackburn Northrop looms which gives the fabric its amazing weave character.

The brand is focused on making jeans 100% made in the UK. Crafting jeans in a conscious way by using no water treatments and no plastics in the finished product. And make sure that every stage of the jeans is manufactured in an ethical way. And, last but not least, cut zero corners to produce the best quality jeans they can.

The Details Of The ED-1 Selvedge Jeans

The ED-1 selvedge pair of jeans by United Overalls is made with a 14oz rigid indigo cotton selvedge denim fabric, woven by Hewitt Heritage Fabrics. This denim will give a great vintage-looking fade and become super soft once they are worn in!

The rivets on the jeans are from YKK Japan, the same as the WWII laurel leaf style buttons. The jeans is constructed with a single piece selvedge fly, the arcuates feature the British Broad Arrow Design, the backpatch is sewn on with the waistband, and the belt loops are sewn into the waistband for extra durability. The thick canvas pockets are big enough for the largest smartphones. The jeans is sewn by Blackhorse Lane Ateliers with 100% cotton thread for authenticity.

Free Repairs & Face Mask With Every Pair

Each pair of United Overalls ED-1 jeans comes with free repairs for life. You can send the jeans back to Tom so he can do the repairs. But, together with the jeans, you will receive an extra patch of denim so you can do it yourself too. Next to that, each pair comes also with a matching face mask, made with the same denim fabric.
