All fabrics and trims supplied.

Each person will get to cut & sew a Selvedge Type II Trucker Jacket, step by step. True 1930s and 1950s.

Many examples in premium construction will be used on this enhanced class, with clean construction, single needle felled seams & making all garments without any overlocking.

You will leave with a Selvedge Type II Trucker Jacket personally made by you, including all textile materials (buttons, rivets, pocketing etc.) and access to a fountain of knowledge by the master of denim Mohsin Sajid. You’ll also have a fantastic three-day experience with like-minded denim enthusiasts.



What is supplied:

It is recommended that each participant brings their own fabric scissors (large and small) to help the class move along in a good pace.

All Selvedge Denim, pocketing fabric, trims, thread, tracing chalk and sewing pins will be supplied on the course. But if you wish to bring your own selvedge denim, make sure its 3 metres of selvedge denim (narrow denim about 28" width is best) we will be using 100% cotton denim fabric in between 12 and 14oz.

Please note we will not be using any stretch fabrics on this course.

A good selection of sewing threads will be available from Mohsin’s own Endrime studio if you want to bring a selection of colours, make sure they are thick thread ( tex 60-90 is best ) and they are colours that work well together with the desired denim shade.

We will be using Japanese Selvedge fabrics from Kaihara and Kurabo denim mills, as well as custom denim history leather patches from preimum turkish leather patch maker DeriDesen and custom period correct WWII buttons ( donut ) and rivets ( washer and burr ) from YKK London Showroom.

A daylong lecture will cover denim history, key historical brands and their input in denim and workwear today. New denim renaissance, cotton, yarn & denim manufacturing processes including natural indigo vs synthetic indigo, denim terminologies, strengths of using original shuttle looms, different weaves, different thicknesses and their strengths of right and left hand twill. Selvedge denim vs. non selvedge and different types of washing treatments and finishes. We will cover the anatomy of a 5 pocket pair of jeans. Thread sizes, colours, metal sundries colours in relation to denim shades. You will see videos of the cotton process from harvest to yarn and denim manufacturing from denim factories in USA, Turkey, China and Japan.

Throughout the lecture, there will be many examples of pre 1920’s vintage pieces and a selection of 40 other denim samples from Mohsin’s Endrime archive to talk through the construction methods and special details in each jean.

The final section of the lecture will cover key details that make a jean, and different finishes that are applied to the denim and at different levels of the market. We will talk about sustainability in the denim making process and touch on the impact of costs, quantities, garment manufacturing and lead times, when selecting fibres and fabrics. New textile developments will also be highlighted throughout the session.

This one-day lecture will also give participants the opportunity to understand this complex product type, and ask questions.
