The soaking an shrinking process is rather important aspect of an denim project. Not only does the shrinkage define the overall fit of the jeans but is also crucial information one needs to provide to the customers purchasing the jeans. The Lot 750x Northern Denim Co. jeans were soaked some time back, fit pics were taken and now I finally made time to post the “post soak findings”.
It’s been long time coming, but this week we finally managed to have a little photo-shoot for the new natural indigo Lot 750x Northern Denim Co. jeans. You can find the details on the Official Northern Denim Co. site.
The Slim Straight cut jeans are not just great 14.7oz fabric but we wanted to work on the fit as well. Lot 3010 is great with the classic Vintage Straight cut but we wanted to see what could we do to create a slightly slimmer fit while retaining the comfort of the Lot 3010. So we chose a Slim Straight silhouette for the Lot 750x. The denim is nice and tough, though the denim softens after some wear and adjusts nicely to one’s lifestyle. The unwashed denim shrinks quite a bit after a wash (1 to 1.5 inches from the waist and inseam) thus just like with majority of slim fitting jeans out there, it’s best to go with your true size or size up one. But more of the shrinking in another post with the measurements.
The leather patch of the Northern Denim Co. Lot 750x is one of the more significant changes to Lot 3010. Not only with regards to the logo included but the this time around we wanted to introduce a thick leather patch that would withstand wear and tear with the slightly thicker jeans/ denim.
Aside from measurements of the jeans the behavior of the denim fabric is a key to an awesome denim wearing experience. The fabric evolves as you wear the jeans and high quality denim adapts to your life(style). That’s why no two pairs of premium jeans are alike. The hand made finishing and the personalization of the wear and tear ensures you wear a unique piece.
Details or attention to details is what differentiates brands. Especially premium ones. As the Lot 750x project progresses and we’re getting closer to official launch, we are concurrently working on ensuring everything adds up and makes sense. Especially the measurements. We have a right fit in mind and now that we have the sample, we can test the fit and its different qualities. Remember, it’s all in the details. So now we are measuring the jeans, testing them and making sure all adds up before going into production and collecting orders. What’s important is that the jeans and every little detail of the jeans are loved and appreciated by the customers. So before all adds up, and I am ready to launch the label I will keep you posted. Stay tuned, these jeans are worth following and buying.
So, we got a much anticipated box from FedEx few days back. The package included the first ever pair of natural indigo Lot 750x Northern Denim Co. jeans. Past few days I have been looking into the different features of those jeans and now I am actually wearing a pair while writing this. The pair is still rather stiff as expected from an unwashed pair of jeans. Also the pair fits slimmer than my previous pair of jeans. Slim but still comfortable fit. No skinny jeans…
Last month we shared the sample of the Northern Denim Co. Lot 750x leather patch material. Today we are pleased to share the working draft of the leather patch designed for the Lot 750x. Take note that this is merely a sample draft for the design to test the design. Design, style and leather material approved. Next up, printing the final leather patch and sewing the piece on the latest pair of Northern Denim Co. jeans. Stay tuned for more.
Exciting times, it’s already a month ago when I wrote about the choice of leather patch for the upcoming natural indigo Lot 750x Northern Denim Co. jeans. The first pair of the label is ready in Japan and we received the first pictures of these exclusive jeans.
Recently we’ve gotten several inquiries about stock situation and even questions if we still carry Momotaro Jeans since our online store shows the jeans as out of stock. This however only refers to the items in storage in Finland. So to answer your concerns, yes we carry Momotaro Jeans and the other brands mentioned on our site.
We’re getting closer to the release of the next installment or Northern Denim Co. jeans. The Lot 750x natural indigo slim straight jeans are set to go into production soon, but first I need to choose the right leather patch. It would be easy to go with the same as last round, but this is a special pair of jeans so I needed to try something new. Since it will be a tough pair even the Husky Boy logo is in fight mode, so the leather patch needed to be tough as well. I chose a thicker but still (barely) sewable patch for the new jeans. The sewing of the patch will be slightly different with this pair but the end result should be awesome as well. We’ll see once I get the fresh pair in few weeks’ time. Stay tuned for more on the Northern Denim Co. journey…
