Inspired by an historic Levis fabrication, we discovered a burly Bedford corduroy from Japan and paired it with our timeless 5 pocket fit to create a style rugged enough to give your toughest selvedge a run for its money. These are the Monster Bedford Corduroys.
In the 1960's, a style from Levis became popular. It was often referred to as the Californian Trouser. It combined a classic fit with Bedford corduroy designed to be as sturdy as denim. Today, we show you our version. Our project began with the discovery of a truly special fabric from Japan - a big weight Bedford corduroy. Bedford corduroys were designed to be hard-wearing fabrics. The vertical rib weave is similar to a corduroy, but in a flatter design, lending an unusual vertical texture to the fabric. Until now most versions we'd found were finer in composition and light weight. This version is a beast - 12 ounces and one of the tightest fabrics we've felt. Tough as nails is an understatement. You feel it the second you put them on. There's a sense of protection that we've come to appreciate from real vintage style fabric. This version is a pale blue-grey. These are like stepping back in time to experience an iconic style.
