MILLIE RIGHE DISTRESSED COTTON JEANS IN DARK BLUE (29W)
Vintage Lee jeans with a distressed design crafted for the ultimate comfort in a slim fit style.
JP (designer) describes the process;
Our mille righe jeans are made from original and rare Lee jeans from the 80s and 90s. These models are usually called “tasca puntale” or “toe pocket” because of the pointy shape of the back pocket. Such peculiar back pockets are also smaller compared to the ones we see nowadays.
The bottom of this piece is originally larger so we reconstructed it and made it smaller for a slimmer fit.
We obtained these rips with a process of burning which left a number “stains” on the garment which then became the blueprint for the ripping process.
What’s peculiar about these jeans is a process of vertical seaming we applied in order to create that shiny, lucid texture to the garment. “Mille righe’ means a thousand lines which is exactly what we wanted to create while stichting extra thin vertical lines with a “linear” sewing machine.
