Blackhorse Lane

Indigo NW3 Heritage Straight Selvedge Denim Jean




For a classic pair of jeans, look no further than Blackhorse Lane Ateliers' NW3. Inspired by denim styles from the 1940s, this pair has a slightly higher rise to sit above the hips, while the legs are a straighter cut, tapering gently at the ankle. Crafted from indigo selvedge denim, which is woven in Turkey, these jeans feature contrasting tobacco stitching, a leather patch label, copper hardware by YKK and come pre-shrunk.

The story

Blackhorse Lane Ateliers is a testament to how traditional values can exist in the modern world, as a brand that carefully considers the effects of every part of its business. Owner Bilgehan ‘Han’ Ates, who has worked in the industry for 25 years, founded the label only one year ago with the goal of making the best jeans in the world. By recruiting tailors to work in his London factory, sourcing premium denim from around the world and encouraging local production – including sourcing premium denim, labels woven in Wales and English leather – Ates has made good progress in achieving that. What's better, the company is committed to lessening the environmental impact of its creations, using organic cotton and offering a lifetime repair policy.
