A great book for aficionados of vintage denim jeans and jackets, by Levi's and other early manufacturers! The values of the earliest examples of denim and 'duck' canvas clothing have reached such a level, that people have taken to 'prospecting' in long disused mines, and even 19th Century land-fill sites, to recover the oldest examples! The advantage to the average vintage denim fan, is that these classic early designs are then recreated by the biggest denim companies, as well as numerous smaller manufacturers- and even enthusiasts with a sewing machine, working at home!
Mike Harris's obvious enthusiasm for unearthing (literally) these now historical artefacts, and also describing all the intricate details of their design and manufacture, are reflected in every page of this meticulously crafted book, a real 'labour of love', if ever there was one!
My thanks to The Book Depository for a great price, and excellent service. Highly recommended.
