Gamine Workwear: Raw Denim and Workwear for Women


workwear, women's workwear, raw denim, sustainable denim, local denim, made in usa, american denim,

Female denim-heads rejoice! The answer to your prayers is here. At long last a raw denim jean made by women for women. Gamine Workwear is a New England based company who specializes in no-nonsense workwear that is utilitarian yet easy on the eyes and most importantly on the body. The line is designed by Taylor Johnston, Manager of the Gardens and Greenhouses at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum in Boston, Massachusetts. Johnston sums up the company’s values best herself-

Gamine is an exploration of femininity and worn character […] as Yankee gardeners and geologists ourselves– we aim to tread lightly by creating products that support sustainable manufacturing and the lost art of mending. We choose to work with textiles that are selected with great consideration for their ruggedness and ability to highlight the work and story of the worker. “

Gamine’s updated line of slim slouch dungarees now feature three different fits. The straight silhouette, a demi silhouette for more area in the hips and a bold fit for hourglass silhouettes designed with a roomier bum and waist area. The new line goes on pre-sale Tuesday March 1st on their website.

Gamine also offers repair services including darning, boro, and Sashiko for merchandise bought from their shop to extend the life of your favorite pieces.

Gamine has a variety of other products in their shop made and sourced with the same focus on local design and a sustainable and transparent production process. Pictured below is the hand-dyed indigo hemp tee who’s claim to fame is being one of the most rugged teeshirts on the market. They also have a handful of vintage overalls.

Mister Freedom NOS Chambray Shirt Is A Man’s Best Friend For Fall


We get really excited when we’re writing about Mister Freedom. Maybe it’s their irresistible photography, saturated-yet-flawlessly- vintage-looking color stories, attention to detail from the top to the bottom of each denim garment, or the rugged Americana aesthetic. Whatever’s seducing us, we never get bored of stopping by their website to see what well-dressed gentlemen will be treated to with each new release. This time, we’re enchanted by the Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane “AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR” Chambray shirts: A slim fit men’s shirt in a bright palette of earthy, yet powerful hues, contrast details, available in solids and stripes.

But their visual appeal is just part of the reason they’re special. Check out the story behind their production:

“This Sportswear collection is all MADE in USA, an humble effort to keep factories busy at home, and to spend hard earned $ locally… We chose NOS (New Old Stock, aka dead stock) fabrics for a lot of the items, selected from our collected stock of American vintage selvedged textiles. Not the easiest approach to manufacturing, since factories dread small batches, eclectic instructions, mixed fabric width and time consuming specific cut/sew…We took the risks of the high road, and hope some will appreciate the efforts.”

While the description on the website is lengthy, if you read it, you’ll see that Mister Freedom has a rare and intimate understanding of their customer, of their fabrics, fits, and mission. We love to see companies that maintain this standard of old fashioned service and personal touch.

This shirt retails at $199.95, and you can own one by calling (323) 653-2014 or emailing john@misterfreedom.com or  jordan@misterfreedom.com (while they last).

Hannah Holman Heads Up Iro’s Spring 2011 campaign


We’re obsessed with these desaturated shots of the angelic Hannah Holman in French brand Iro‘s spring 2011 campaign, featuring stunning layered denim jackets and white pinstripe cut-off’s. A dash of metallic and shot of olive green make for a muted but delicious palette that we’re all about emulating once the snow melts away.
