As each of these pieces trickled out through instagram I was happy to see people’s positive response towards our philosophy of vintage stuff. Each of these have been added to the Etsy store. Both of these items turned out excellent. We briefly talked about concept and the details of the repairs over coffee, but the results speak for themselves. Narita-san did an excellent job getting the personal touches right.
This Lee jacket came unlined and full of holes and deliciously faded and stained denim. I wanted to use a few of the scraps I had of some quilt fabric. It added a new dimension to the jacket, and really brought out a different character of the old denim. It was missing a cuff so we added one. On the back we decided to just keep it simple with one contrasting patch below the collar.
This Red Head Brand hunting jacket was a lucky find. The wear was excellent to build from with plenty of rips, tears, and stains. The denim adds a more cheerful tone to the mute beige of the canvas. Little pieces of leather, and corduroy patches to mesh the wear with the repair. The tassel was Narita-san’s personal touch on this piece, that I think adds some needed humor.
