This is my personal pair of jeans from the first season of LUDWIG VAN – Spring 2008. This Denim is 4-years old and I’ve washed the hell out of it, worn the hell out of it, ridden the hell out of it, etc…and it looks pretty good. It’s not your “cool-guy” pair of Selvage – blah,blah,blah…just a solid pair of 5 pockets made with quality Cone Mills denim (I think). I’ve customized them a bit to fit my own personal taste, but what makes them so nice is that they have held up real well. No broken hardware, loops, seams etc. are all sturdy. Stay tuned for some NEW jeans from LUDWIG VAN x Rivi Goods for ReVisit©. Those will be for “cool guys”.
Premium Casual…Nobody does vintage styling like LUDWIG VAN. There are a handful of these Tri-blend tees and tanks left at the LUDWIG VAN shop as seen in this photo. They feature vintage tri-blend heather jersey with real indigo binding on the neck. They are finished with the most amazing vintage wash giving them that “had it forever” feel. Check it out!
$3,500 worth of vintage dead-stock goods on the way out the door. When this returns it will have taken on a whole new life full of gourmet goodness!
“Cross Colours Dead-stock Project”. Found in a Vernon CA. warehouse the dead-stock fabric was repurposed to produce a very limited run of short sleeved t-shirts, tank tops and hoodies all of which implement a color-blocking theme. The remnants of this jersey were rumored to have been developed for the never released 1992 collaboration between Cross Colours and hip-hop duo Kriss Kross…yes, you heard that right.

What you see here is a deadstock US Marine issue roll of “Mitchell Camo” – some others call it “Leaf Camo”, nevertheless this is the real deal or “The Real McCoy” as it were. It was used for helmet covers and some various other official US Marine issue gear from WWII thru Vietnam…anyway, back to the point. This is not a reproduction, or a copy. Pretty much any other company that uses this camo for a garment or product using this pattern that’s what you will get, a copy. Those who know, know that you will not find this anywhere else and the fact that it’s on a roll is extremely rare. It’s to be featured on a very limited collaboration with a very special footwear company dropping in Spring 2013…stay tuned for more details on this project.
