Here are a few detail shots of the Jean we did for Art in the Age down in olde city Philadelphia. This jean included an interior tag and the Art in the Age logo on the fly. There are only a few pairs left so run on down and grab them before they're gone.

We try to keep it interesting with our leather goods. We rarely make the same thing twice minus one or two designs. Some of these pieces were intricately hand-carved and painted and are NOT rolled or automated stamps. Here are a few of our recent ventures.
Recreation of a vintage belt we have and love
The Sling Belt
"Waylon and Willie"
We haven't spent much time showing these off but they should really get some more love. This is a 14oz Japanese, left-hand weave selvage. Left-hand basically means that the denim is much softer that your typical raw denim. So this jean is soft and thick. The rest speaks for itself.
For those of you who could not make it to our November exhibition, here are some photos from the spread. Big thanks to everyone over at Art in the Age for everything! The exhibit showcased a few pair of NP jeans worn from raw to busted. These were some of the first pairs constructed and were on the legs of close friends. They show some of the best details for worn denim, including the nice bottom hem roping you get with chainstitching (which we do). We also broke down some of the stitches used in construction on the other side of the buffalo. We we're very happy to do the show and just as happy to make a custom jean for AITA which is available at their store down on 3rd street. So if your looking for a place to check them out up close and have a feel on the legs, go to Art in the Age.
