Universal Works: 'Workshop Denim' range launches – and it's a winner


Everything that needs to be said about Japanese and/or American denim has already been said a thousand times on a thousand menswear blogs by serious men wearing serious cardigans. So, we're not going to get all reverential about British brand Universal Works' new Workshop Denim collection. What we will say is that this is one of best clothing ranges we've seen in a long time – a collection with a proper unifying philosophy, all constructed in 13oz Portguese denim. Its quality, as you'd expect from the Nottingham label, properly shines through in every garment. Universal Works says: 

"We've decided to keep things simple; making a European jean, from vintage narrow loomed denim, in two great fits that still take into account the needs of contemporary man, keeping them unwashed so you can make them your own, and selling them at the best possible price."

Sounds a perfect fit - and at £135 for a pair of jeans, you won't have to break the bank in order to get your hands on something that will last years. Just don't wash 'em too early.
