The STEVENSON OVERALL COMPANY’s self-conception just materialized within the store by unpacking the staggering Drifter car coat made of 100% custom-produced British Wool&Genuine Horsehide Leather. On top of that we received two new 5-pockets: the Visalia made out of Original Brown Selvage Duck-Canvas and the eagerly awaited Calistoga! I will post images of the latter asap…
Drifter is inspired by a 1930s car coat. The full-size shawl collar can be raised to protect from wind or dust.
Pockets and cuffs are detailed with horsehide trimmings for durability. The adjustable waistband follows the
same design as the pocket trimming. During the 1930s, car coats were made as a luxury item, targeted for rich
individuals who owned cars. This jacket is an original design by Stevenson Overall Co. featuring both the luxurious
details of its character, also incorporating its intended functionality as a coat.
Custom-produced 100% British wool. Using three-ply yarn, it is woven into double cloth to replicate the strong and
dense fabric seen in vintage clothing. The tightly woven fabric is also wind resisting and prevents against cold weathers.
The Visalia – 380 RIGID
Visilia is a wide cut, five pocket jeans that display an essence of oldness. Buckle-back ends are tucked in along the waistline.
Lock stitching and flat-felled seams are incorporated with twin-needle at minimal width for clean parallel seams. The back
pockets are reinforced using a twin-needle, finishing with a reverse V-shaped stitch. Inside of the front pockets are cut to match
the visible ornamental stitching. Design of leather patch is hand-drawn for authenticity. Front fly is constructed out of a single
piece of fabric, a detail found in vintage workwear pants which increases durability. Back pockets are reinforced using an extra
layer of fabric on interior, and pocket bags are finished with flat-felled seams instead of the contemporary overlock stitching.
A custom-produced brown duck-canvas fabric. The warp uses a straight and slubby yarn, woven with a slubby yarn used as weft.
The slubby yarn is created by mixing noil (left over short fibers) during the spinning process for a natural finish.
The fabric is woven by alternating the picks per inch, creating a finely balanced density and vintage-like look.
