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!
Our good friends at the Wrenchmonkees garage are putting together their own little tradeshow during the Copenhagen Fashion Week this winter. Summing up fellow Iron&Denim lovers from Indigofera, Rooktown, Eat Dust and For Holding Up The Trousers, the WM A.C. label will be displayed in it’s rightful environment. During the days craftsmen will be working on their respective products everybody is invited to join the show – free of charge! Come grab a beer, eat some food and get pit access to the founders and craftsmen behind this selected group of hardwearing brands. By the way, on Friday the 1st of February the Monkees are planning to throw one of their kick-ass parties, so be sure to put down the date.
Wrenchmonkees is best know for their unique custom bikes, but for a long time the three founders have been dreaming of functional motorcycle clothes that would fit their way of life working in their garage and riding their bikes. This fall, the dream has been realised with the launch of the WM A.C Nordic Workwear label in collaboration with KANSAS, established supplier of authentic Danish workwear since 1952 and the no. 1 choice of workers for generations. The clothes are crafted to withstand hard work and designed to be worn with pride when you ride your bike.
One of the most important parametres for choosing the participants for our Levi’s Vintage Clothing Wear & Tear Project was to get people with different backgrounds, and what better than a real biker. We found him in the Wrenchmonkees garage in Copenhagen and this is his story.
I’d like to do a little advertising for The Castle Run bike show that will be held on May 12th (tomorrow) in the beautiful settings of Krenkerup Castle. The event is hosted by Krenkerup Brewery and Customs From Jamesville. The event is about the love for vintage and custom bikes, but everyone with a passion for fine beer, motorcycles, and a relaxed atmosphere is welcome.
