One of my favourite British menswear brands, Nottingham-based Universal Works have finally launched into the denim market with their brand newWorkshop Denim collection. Their aim was to keep things as simple as possible, which can be seen through the minimal branding and lack of treatments. This, alongside unbranded rivets, modest pocket stitching and a humble, hand-stamped UW "Workshop Denim" interior patch.
The 4-piece collection features Slim + Regular fit jeans (worn above with the Bumper boot), a classic Trucker Jacket and workwear inspired Chore Jacket, each sticking to the 100% fuss-free aim. These pieces are a true blank canvas, awaiting for the customer to leave their own mark. Construction is Nottingham, England based - With the 13oz denim being originally spun on a vintage loom out in Portugal.
Check out the lovely stop-motion video below, "Are Your Jeans Handmade?", created by Animator Allan Buxton, for the launch of Workshop Denim.
