The NW1 jean is a fit that Blackhorse Lane Ateliers say is “inspired by rebels from the 1950s”. We think we know what they’re getting at. With a high-waisted back sloping round to a medium rise at the front, these jeans are best worn with a tucked-in t-shirt, weathered black boots and a smear of engine grease through the hair.
The denim here is the top-of-the-line Japanese indigo selvedge, the best of the best. The fit is described as “relaxed”, and it is, in the right places - on the hip, and on the thigh. It’s 18oz denim here, and that essentially means more denim per square inch. You’ll have an even more sturdy jean, it’ll look fantastic once broken in – but you really will have to break them in.
Materials: 14 oz raw selvedge denim; copper buttons and rivets produced by YKK; vegetable-tanned leather patches
Made in Blackhorse Lane, London
