Launched this spring, Copenhagen’s Wrenchmonkees has created a small collection of decent and simple workwear under the WM A.C label in collaboration with Danish workwear manufacturer Kansas. The Wrench #6 waistcoat is a functional and versatile garment that works equally well for the slightly dressed up jeans and shirt look or for wrenching in the garage. It’s made of a 100% heavyweight 375g overdyed cotton fabric that is unwashed. To give the fabric a unique look, co-owner Andreas Mørk-Hansen has experimented with applying 4 layers of Otter Wax to his waistcoat. Why? Because it makes the hard wearing fabric even more wind and water resistant – and because it looks great!
Imagine what would happen when two century-old companies both with histories that stretches back to 1889 find each other and decide to work together and create an outstanding product. That’s what happened when Saint James and Lee decided to create a limited collection of high quality knitwear consisting of two pullovers, two beanies and two shawls. The collection was exhibited at the latest Blueprint show in Amsterdam, but Denimhunters’ Jan den Hartogh stopped by the Dutch Lee office to have a closer look.
Spring is here and all the shops out there are filled with new goods. Just the other day, Brund sent out a newsletter, and even though some of the products have already been featured earlier this spring I also wanted to give Henrik himself the opportunity to tell you a bit about it. So here it is, translated more or less directly from the original Danish texts.
