blue bell stays true

Michael from Wrangler Blue Bell stopped in the other day to show us the new collection for Fall / Winter 2011… I managed to sneak in a few shots as he and Blake were talking..

 

So…

In the early 1900’s, a young 20 something year old boy named C.C. Hudson along with several others, buy a few sewing machines and leases a space above a grocery store in North Carolina.  Hoping to capitalize on the booming textile business, he founds Hudson Overall Company.  - Legend has it, a group of railroad workers who were customers, gave Hudson a bell.  This bell soon became covered in the dust of blue denim, hence the name “blue bell” company. 

During World War II, Blue Bell manufactured pants, jackets, military pants, and clothes for soldiers.  The company prospered.

After the war, in 1946, Blue Bell started manufacturing “Wrangler” jeans for cowboys and people who loved rodeos.

The name Wrangler, comes from Blue Bell’s acquisition of the Casey Jones-Work Clothes Company in the 1940’s.  It was a brand name owned by Casey Jones that was rarely used…

Fast forward half a decade of succesful overseaslaunches, endorsements, acquisitions and mergers, and the dropping of the “blue bell” in the 70’s, Wrangler becomes one of the biggest work-wear company in the world. 

In 2004, Wrangler commemorated their 100th year of production by launching Blue Bell by Wrangler (at that time a european exclusive). 7 years later, they bring this limited edition collection into the states. 

We our proud to be one of the few stores in the country that stock this very iconic brand.  These jeans are a reproduction of the early days of the Blue Bell company in terms of attention to detail and quality of fabrics and production, but engineered with a more contemporary fit. 

with that being said…

Naked and Famous S/S ‘11




Naked and Famous has arrived..





slim hoody grey terry $140

"The fabric you see here, is knit on old machines called Tsuri (suspended) Circular Knitting Machines.  These machines were used in the 1800s in Europe to make fine knit fabric, but in 1910 were abandoned due to their slow productivity.  The Japanese knitters were happy to grab up the last few existing machines and imported them to Wakayama, Japan.  There is an estimated mere 100 of these machines still in operation in Wakayama today! 

It takes approx 1 hour to make just 1 meter of fabric on these machines, and because of its slow and hanging operation, and it’s specialty rare German needles, no undue tension is placed on the yarn while knitting.  And, because there is far less tension, the Japanese say it’s almost as if they knit “air” into the fabric!  The result is a vintage and an unique fabric that feels as if it was knit by hand.”




slim shirt blue oxford $115

"This shirt is made in the oldest existing shirt factory in North America, which was founded in Quebec, in 1894.  For over a century, the factory has been producing fine mens shirts as can be seen on the founder on the back of this tag.  The tradition of old-world craftsmanship and apassion for shirting continues to this day.  We import the finest selvedge denim, selvedge chambray, oxford cottons, and other unique and rich shirting fabrics, always from Japan.  But, we leave out all the embroidery, washes or any after effects so we can offer you these pricey cult fabrics at reasonable prices."
