Get to know P&Co and their selvedge denim items

A little while back – during the Amsterdam Denim Days to be exact – we met the guys of P&Co, a British lifestyle brand for young urban creatives. We started talking and couple of gin & tonic’s later, we were fully engaged in a fiery conversation about all things fashion.
Back then, when they were rather new in the game, the brand consisted of a wide range of tees with the most amazing artwork. But in a short period of time P&Co has build a collection full of desirable items such as leather accessories, their own coffee and mugs and even products to toughen up your interior. And all imprinted with the same artwork we mentioned before. We couldn’t be more happy. Or at least we thought.. Because the next time we met the guys of P&Co – somehow again involving gin & tonic’s – they just updated their collection with two selvedge denim items, both proudly made in England.
Let’s start with the KS2 Newell Slim 13oz Selvedge Jeans, made by hand in the United Kingdom. Always on the lookout for slim fit selvedge jeans, the designers’ goal was to make the KS2 as slim as possible – something that took them a lot of tweaking and sampling. But after around four samples they found what they claim to be the perfect fit. The jean is crafted from 13oz red selvedge denim – sourced from the Kuroki mills in Okayama, Japan – and takes about 36 man hours t0 make. They’ve added a natural Tärnsjö leather patch that will age naturally while wearing the jean. Because, as with all raw denim: the more you wear it, the better!
And then there’s the Brook. P&Co carried a Brook denim jacket before, but the designers updated it to its current version: a selvedge made of 13oz Italian red Candiani Selvedge. This slim fit denim jacket is made of raw unwashed denim and has a selvedge edge running down te button placket. Fun detail, the Brook has a printed chart on the inside, the perfect place to keep track of everything that has to do with the jacket. Your own denim journal one might say. Also, the jacket features a hidden Union Jack flag sewn into the inside, to verify that the jacket was made in England. With the signature gold stitching and vintage brass metal hardware, this jacket is one to live in. And that’s exactly what it’s meant for.
