Worn + Torn: Swift Mills 14 oz. Left Hand Twill

One of the first pairs of denim we produced was made using some denim from a now defunct mill in Georgia. It was a Swift Mills 14 ounce left hand twill. A good customer of ours, Jackson West, put his pair through the ringer and back. He came in to have a button replaced and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph the beautiful fade he has put on them. After about two years of wearing and a few washes the deep blue of the indigo has bleached out to classic sky blue with lots of contrast on the the seams. It's always great to see how people live in the garments we produce. Thanks for sharing Jakson.
