Rope Dye Crafted Goods
Well Worn

Just Add a Bit of Glue

These Levi’s Vintage Clothing 1967 505s were bought in Brund by Peter Elverdam from Copenhagen approximately one and a half years ago. They are washed 2 times and used for 8 months before the first wash. Peter has not used the jeans every day of the period, so he can’t put an exact number of days on how much they have been used before the first wash. Peter is a civil engineer and he spends most of his day in an office, so the pants doesn’t wear out so quickly. The saddle of his bicycle has worn the crotch of the jeans thin, which has required a repaired and a reinforcement of the area with a swatch of fabric and a bit of textile glue. This has proven to be a rapid and durable solution.
