We are very excited to announce our latest product release - the LD Sierra Nevada Pulllover. This version is inspired by the garments worn by miners during the Gold Rush which started from the mid 1800s in California, a defining period in their history. Miners then needed clothing that could withstand the rigors of continuous use, and with a fit that allowed for ease of movement. This was one such garment, a homage that comes in 10 oz. sanforized selvedge denim made of Zimbabwe cotton from Nihon Menpu Japan. Double-felled back, riveted placket and side slits help assure its longevity over time. The buttons are made of pure copper, handsewn onto the breast pocket flap and along the placket and cuffs . It isn’t often that one gets the chance to own an iconic design of a garment and here it is yours for the taking. Available now, as well do see it for yourself as it will be one of the new pieces featured during this April 27 Saturday’s Léon Denim Launch at @purveyrpost Poblacion from 7-11 pm. Available in Size 36 38 40 42 and 44 (XS to XL, respectively) - sizing chart is provided in the last panel for reference. #denimforrreal #madetofade #handcraftedbyartisans #selvedgephilippines #leondenim

Great work wear, and authentic in design, we’ve featured this brand before. Run by self-confessed “denim heads,” the brand is behind the first Filipino raw selvedge jeans. A must-have is their chore coats that are a perfect addition to any guy’s closet.
