Tender has its roots in antique workwear and machinery, especially from the Great British Steam Age. An important face of Tender’s English–made clothing is the nurture which is put into the clothes: in their research, design, manufacture and wear. Tender’s goal is for the owner to live with their clothes, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell.
Rinsed 16oz Selvage Denim Type 902 Edited Jeans Jacket
The Edited Jeans Jacket is a simplified version of the Type 901 Pleat Pocket Jeans Jacket, cut straight with a centre back seam. The back panels are brought up and over to the front, forming a smooth biased shoulder which wears particularly comfortably.
The hem is finished with a chainstitched jeans waistband, with lined patch pockets tucked into it. Custom pewter buttons hand–cast in England. 100% cotton thread
Tender’s 16oz blue–line selvage denim is custom–woven in Japan, then shipped to the UK loomstate, to be finished or cut and sewn directly.
Ring–spun unbleached American cotton is rope dyed with 25 dips of pure indigo, with no back tinting or sulphur, giving an exceptionally dark blue–black fabric which fades beautifully with wear, and forms an excellent base for other natural and historical overdyes.
The yarn is heavily starched during the weaving process, so it arrives quite stiff and will soften considerably as it ages. Because it has not been pre–skewed, the yarn unwinds with washing, causing the clothing to twist and shape to the body.
