Do you practice jiu-jitsu and enjoy fading raw denim? Then the this dark selvedge denim kimono from Vanguard is perfect for you. Crafted from American-made Cone Mills Denim and made in Los Angeles, this is a unique piece that is stronger and more durable than traditional cotton kimonos. The collar features multi-colored 'chain-stitching' and the entire jacket is pre-laundered with enzyme and silicone finish for a deluxe, slubby texture that is also soft to the touch. Like any piece of raw denim, this kimono will fade with age and use and become unique to your body and fighting style. Truly a one of a kind piece.
Vanguard Dark Selvedge Denim Kimono
Massdrop x Naked & Famous 14-Oz Selvage Denim
Looking to upgrade your daily denim? Check out this selvage jean collaboration between Massdrop and Naked & Famous. They've used a custom rope-dyed selvage from Okayama, Japan that has been woven on vintage shuttle looms. The result is a yarn that has waves, bumps and different thicknesses throughout. These are a bit heavier than your typical Levis and they take around 3 to 4 weeks to break in. Like all raw denim, these get better with age and after a few weeks the rigid, durable fabric will produce wear patterns that reflect your own style and use.
Taking their design cues from the ancient art of origami, the Nomad Hammock by Italian designers Daniel Benvenuti and Tiziano Rinaldo allows you a practical way to nap on the go. Featuring a spacious 20L capacity, minimalistic design and CORDURA material, this stylish pack is perfect for both a busy city lifestyle or outdoor nomadic adventures. Currently funding on kickstarter.
