Vintage Petersburg Deadstock
Years ago, we got a call from some friends who had responded to a Craigslist post about some vintage chairs in Petersburg, VA. The chairs were located in an abandoned factory, and when they went in, they found something you don’t see everyday – rolls and rolls of deadstock denim.
Naturally, we were intrigued. So we shot down to Petersburg to check it out. We found a lot of denim. None of it had been touched in a long time.
Most of the fabric was damaged by decades of sitting in the elements but we found some true gems, including this sky blue unsanforized denim from the 1970s. We were able to make 46 pairs in our new Vintage Fit. These jeans are rinsed for comfort and to remove the shrinkage concerns.
