A Project to Patina

We never get bored of our denim and neither will you. The way it builds in character with wear is unlike any other fabric and gives you the chance to develop something really unique.

We’ve been using the 8.5oz cotton/linen Candiani selvedge for a few years. It’s the same stuff we use to make our classic Titanium Shirt, along with a number of older denim shirts – now in the archive.

Pictured below is Ed holding one such shirt. This is how your 125 Shirt will patina in time. Gradually becoming bluer with age. An absolute corker.

It’s in the details

What is Selvedge?

Selvedge is old-style denim woven on narrow vintage looms. It typically has a more characterful appearance and a higher level of quality than mass-produced full width denim.

Unlike full width denim, the selvedge loom weaves the outside edge together. This is the stripe you see in selvedge garments. In the 125 Shirt, you can find the stripe inside the placket.

Woven in the world's most environmentally friendly denim mill

We sourced this denim from Italian textile masters, Candiani. Their approach to production innovation and sustainability is nothing short of exceptional. It’s no wonder they are considered the world’s most eco denim mill.

Environmental sustainability is at the forefront of all stages of production of Candiani denim. Using BCI cotton, a micro-plastics-free dye process, solar power and water recycling to name some of the process used.

Plant based (biodegradable, non toxic, microplastics-free) sizing compound is used in the dyeing process, replacing all hazardous chemicals that are commonly used in the denim industry.


The 125 Selvedge Shirt is made from raw selvedge denim. Please follow the wash and care instructions included with your order to avoid f*cking it up.

Raw denim is not colourfast and requires special attention when laundering.

Ed washes his by soak washing in the bath to guarantee a lifetime of good looks (the shirt not him, it’s too late for that!)
