Warehouse Brown-Duck & Digger 1960s 14oz Jeans
The Brown-Duck & Digger line presents authentic American jeans from the 19th century up to the 1960s. Inspired by the gold rush of 1890s California right the way to the swinging sixties, each piece is detailed with the signature indigo leaf stitch and green hand painted leaf emblem on the back pockets. This particular model is based in the 1960’s and boasts a mid rise with a slim/tapered cut. The jean has been crafted from a beautifully woven Memphis cotton denim which boasts the brand’s now iconic yellow/mustard selvedge line. The hidden rivets that we would come to expect from a selvedge model have been forgone in favour of green bar tacks which compliment the leaf arcuate. The button fly has been constructed with one piece of denim with a showing selvedge accent. This method of fly construction is incredibly durable and stands as testament to the life expectancy of these jeans. This model also features raised belt loops, heavy cotton pocket bags, custom iron buttons, copper rivets and an unbleached cotton patch. The denim is raw and can be expected to shrink up to eight percent in the first wash.
The use of Billiken, an early 20th century American and Japanese good luck mascot, links in well with the brand ethos.
'I am the God of Luckiness, Observe my Twinkling eye, Success is sure to follow those, Who keep me closely by: I make men fat and healthy, Who were quarrelsome and thin; I am the God of Luckiness. My name is Billiken.'
