In a world of mass production and conformity, Universal Works are championing a smaller scale approach to their debut denim range, “Workshop Denim”
In the denim world, it is normally either about American or Japanese, and about trying to recreate a vintage look or capture an authentic feel. Universal Works however have approached things a little differently, sourcing vintage loom made 13oz denim from Portugal and making the jeans in the centre of England.
“We have decided to keep things simple; making a European Jean, from vintage narrow loomed denim, in two great fits that still take into account the needs of contemporary man, keeping them unwashed so you can make them your own, and selling them at the best possible price.”
Deliberately not branded on the outside, featuring unbranded rivets, a unique yet unassuming pocket shape and all finished with a ghost patch; Universal Works has created a range of good fitting, simple and honest garments, all made in England.
The two fits of jeans will be exclusively available from Oi Polloi and Peggs & Son from April 4th retailing at £135. The full range is also available at www. universalworks.co.uk – 37 Lambs Conduit Street, 40 Berwick Street.
