The special limited edition collection for fall 2010, Pace cooperating
With the denim nerds and bloggers Blue Highway.
Blue Highway made by hand two samples for us: one jeans and one jacket. We gave them the task to make this collection with our grandpa as inspiration. Our grandfather left Sweden early 1913. Grandpa Erik and his brother lived in the US for a couple of years digging gold in telluride in Colorado.
Blue Highway Hampus and Douglas designed the jeans and the jacket as if Pace was founded in 1890. That year the patent for rivets was over and all the jeans brand were allowed to use rivets to fasten for ex. Pockets. At that time jeans brand were used to fasten pockets and other with seams in a smart way, therefore Pace collection is both made with rivets and other ways of fasten for an example the cinch back.
Other time typical details is on the jacket: one pocket, watch pocket, rivet mounted, plated front, cinch back lined with linen, 29'' inch vintage loom fabric Japanese, donuts buttons.
The jeans will come in ''a special denim bag and they'' will be numbered by hand of Douglas and Hampus.
ABOUT THE DENIM:
This jeans wash is not a wash, it’s raw.
It is not washed but pre-shrunk and sanforized, it will shrink a little but it will also stretch out, it’s alive!! Be careful if you are sitting in a bright coloured sofa or something like that, they can dry bleach some.
What is SELVAGE DENIM?
Only the finest jeans are made of selvage denim.
Selvage denim is made on old-style shuttle looms rather than modern, projectile looms. In simple terms, this means during the fabric weaving process, the cross-thread goes back and forth as one continuous thread, rather than as individual threads for each cross weave. As a result, selvage denim has a clean edge. Modern, single thread weaving has a frayed edge.
Traditionally the fabric made on shuttle looms was so narrow, a pair of jeans required approximately 3 yards of fabric. To maximize yield, jean-makers used the fabric all the way to the selvage edge with a straight outside seam. When the cuff is turned up, the two selvedge edges, where the denim is stitched together, can be seen (it's also seen on the inside of the coin pocket). The selvage edge is usually stitched with a colored thread and on vintage jeans, you'll find red, white, green, brown or yellow thread running down the edge, the most common being red. This distinction was made by fabric mills to differentiate between fabrics. True vintage jeans can be recognized the selvage edge.
Japanese selvage denim is the finest and most rare on the market today.
