YAY! What can me more fun and gratifying than having a pair of jeans done exactly to your specs AND then having them named after you?!?
It all started out with some Facebook banter between the owner and designer of Sinclair, Vincent Flumiani, and me. I was kind of fantasizing about my dream jeans and Vincent jumped right in. He said he would be the one to create my dream jeans – make my dream come true?!! Well, it certainly looks like it. LOL!
This is just the first glimpse of a collaboration between yours truly and Sinclair jeans. What you see here is the prototype of what the jeans will look like.
They will be made in the USA, 100% cotton, heavy weight 20-ounce denim. Sinclair is sending me the protos right now and I will then decide about the rips, the wash and mostly the fit. I want these jeans to fit like a good old pair of jeans that you have been wearing forever and that feel like an old friend. I do not want even the tiniest bit of stretch in them, as I really love the vintage feel of 100% cotton denim.
I will keep you updated with all the new developments here and on the Denimology Facebook page.
