There are a lot of different techniques to master while tailoring and creating clothes, and also many decisions to make. A lot of them centers around quality. Do you want a quick fix, or do you want to reach a higher standard.
Some people see it as craziness! I see it as a protest. Some people just don’t care. Finally I got my buttonholes made into my C2 Denim Jacket! Yes! They were made by hand of course.
So what’s the difference in machine vs. man? And why do I do it? And finally, what’s the protest all about? Well, let’s break it down, and I’ll try to give you some answers.
The Ice-Wash Jacket C2, my new favorite! How was that done? Here are some highlights below! Enjoy! (Remember that all these clothes can be ordered in your size, or, learned how to make yourself. Please contact Alexander@StenMartin.com for more info.)
Some things are fresh ‘n’ white, others fade slowly. The keeping of some things tidy, and the letting-go of other items while enjoying its roughness, has always been fascinating to me. Why do we treasure that some things look older, when we at the same time want other things to look brand new?
New items in! Adding the Ice-Wash Denim Jacket and the Basic White T-shirt to the Thousand Days Of Hope And Glory project. I call them C2 and A5.
Both just made, this t-shirt has a relaxed fit, short sleeves an a rather old-school neckline. A kind-of anachronistic look, mixing 1980’s a bit naive clean-cut fresh look (neckline, fresh white, properly made and oversized) with a mid 2010’s deconstructed relaxed feel (narrow shoulders, small sleeves, drape over torso).
