RRL “Lewis” Engineer Jacket

I was glad to finally be able to give this to the lady for the holidays! A reproduction of an old denim Engineer jacket with awesome details done up by RRL. Constructed out of what seems to be Cone Mills denim, with numerous fabric repairs that our patched with contrasting denim. Non-visible blue-line selvedge details on the inner placket & pockets. Reinforced canvas lining on all of the pockets, and a really awesome side-entry pocket watch pocket. Since this is a women’s jacket, they used a pink thread for the bar-tracking and chain stitching. A really nice vintage inspired piece, made in San Francisco and dead-on accurate. The repairs at the arm openings hint that it got caught in machinery and ripped.

Something Different: Pennsylvania

Sorry for going MIA – a four-day trip to the Steel City was definitely needed. We don’t have a change of seasons down here, so my girl and I headed north to see it first hand. We spent most of our time in the mountains, but I did make a trip to the city to meet up with Jace of Plain T-Shirt and have him show us around. Here’s some snaps of the trip. Until next time, Pennsylvania. Enjoy.

Rogue Territory Dbl. Indigo Workshirt

I’m pretty sure this was the first thing I wrote about, a little more than a year ago when I first started Simple Threads. I’ve been wearing this shirt tons since then, and I thought it looked worn enough to snap a few photos of. It’s held up amazingly well, mainly due to the strict quality standards behind all of Karl’s (the one-man operation behind Rogue Territory) designs. The shirt is made from a heavyweight Japanese denim, that is dip-dyed in natural indigo. Triple-stitching throughout the entire garment, heavy duty buttons that show no signs of coming off anytime soon. Hands down the toughest shirt I’ll ever own. These are not available at this very moment, but Karl has hinted that we’ll see a slightly different iteration of this shirt coming out later this year.
