when i was in new york in october i had a meeting at 21 mercer
and as ever i got there early.
so i had a bit of a mooch around mercer street and came across a place
i'd been told about months ago... a business called 3x1
to cut a long story short, 3x1 is a denim business.
you go there and design your own jeans... bespoke jeans.
the choice is incredible, not just the denim, but all the trims.
let me show you a few photos then maybe you should check out their
website to learn more.
my photos are not in any order or trying to tell the story, they are just
things i photographed while having a look around he place.
some examples of the buttons you can use on your jeans
examples of the stitching available
rivets and stuff
more buttons and what not
that nice chalk stuff too
more rivets... is that what they're called ? naturally i'd choose the orange ones
3x1 branded button
also available in other colours ( or colors if you're in the usa )
more of the same
some finished jeans
did i mention they make all the jeans right there on site ?
which is pretty good right ?
what the what ?! a denim bow tie ( also available in white denim )
zips and buttons
buttons and rivets... am i boring you ?
jean making things kicking around
i know, it's only a tape measure but at the time i found it interesting
tape measure and chalk
some nice selvedge denim
selvedge denim on rolls behind a display case table
examples of denim, stitching, buttons etc
looking into the workshop
and through the open door
ok, as you know, words are not my thing but i hope you liked some
of the photos.
3x1 really is a denim enthusiast's dream.
it's well worth going in for a look and a chat if you're in the area.
now have a look at their website for the full story.
