The Outcome After Two Years Of Wear

King-Yu Yiu is creating special bespoke denim styles. For the last two years, he’s wearing a double denim suit created by himself. This two-piece denim suit is heavily inspired by miner overalls with a 1950’s twist. Now, after two years of wearing, he shared a sort of wear dairy to see how this unique bespoke denim suit aged over these two years.

The Specifications Of The Two Styles

The jeans is straight with loose legs fit but tailored with slight tapering from the knees onwards. It features a high-rise and roomier thigh fit while maintaining a smaller leg opening to achieve a contemporary cut. The jacket is a 1950’s-inspired Type 2 style, so a regular box workman silhouette.

The Cone Denim Fabric

The King-Yu Yiu denim suit has been constructed using Cone Denim, selecting a 16.5oz, 3×1 right-hand twill, 100% cotton “Galaxy Blue” shade woven on a 30” loom. For a slight change of direction, he thought why not experiment and see how the wear-down develops on a lighter base in comparison to my usual Japanese heavyweight quality bases.
