Named after the number of warp yarns passed over and under during the weaving process to construct a denim fabric, Three over one uses the best quality, durable fabrics and trims.
This Australian denim brand is designed by Jim Thompson, who says the inspiration comes from a British working man’s wardrobe from the 1930s or 1940s mixed with vintage American sportswear. The result is a range of rugged yet elegant menswear and denim.
For their S/S 11 look book, Thompson was heavily inspired by the photography of Irving Penn, particularly his 1951 series “Small Trades”, where he photographed a wide range of people in a stark studio environment wearing their everyday working attire.
The collection consists of unstructured tailoring with cropped fitted jackets and pleated relaxed fitting pants. Denim jeans are in the best Japanese Selvedge qualities with authentic fits and styling. Shirts come in soft washed linens and cottons, and knits are influenced by vintage undergarments and early athletic wear.
Definitely a brand to watch!
