The NW1 jean is a fit that Blackhorse Lane Ateliers say is “inspired by rebels from the 1950s”. We think we know what they’re getting at. With a high-waisted back sloping round to a medium rise at the front, these jeans are best worn with a tucked-in t-shirt, weathered black boots and a smear of engine grease through the hair.
The high quality Turkish indigo selvedge used here offers the best bang for your denim buck. The fit is described as “relaxed”, and it is, in the right places - on the hip, and on the thigh. If you’re the kind of guy that doesn’t skip leg-day, these jeans ought to be a great match.
Blackhorse Lane Ateliers are London’s only craft jeans maker. We have reason to believe that their factory in North East London produces not only the best jeans in London, but perhaps anywhere in the world. Using only the best selvedge and organic raw denim, their exquisite designs have been considered, refined, reconfigured and redesigned, resulting in unparalleled comfort and fewer potential failure points than any other brand. And if something does start to wear? Your jeans are guaranteed free repairs for life.
