dawson denim

dawson denim are a brighton based company that make products from the highest quality red selvage.

Each piece comes with a “log book” inspired by the same document from the golden age of motoring. The ideal of being built to last has long been forgotten but we are proud to be able to offer a durability guarantee with each of our products. This log book entitles the owner to a service in the first six months when any wear and tear created in this time will be repaired by hand here in the workshop. This service in no way affects the owner’s statutory rights. We use 13oz Red Selvage from Japan, red in Selvage was introduced around the 1930’s to denote the highest quality. The mill we work with is family run and is over100 years old. Selvage or Self-edge is also the oldest, most authentic denim woven on the original looms.

the 'mechanic' apron (above) costs £95, and the 'carpenter belt' apron (below) costs £60. there are other aprons available on their site as well as a useful looking tool roll. made in my home town of brighton, i like the minimal packaging too. i've always wanted a quality work apron for the workshop, and these look perfect! available to buy online, or from selected stockists.
