TROPHY CLOTHING AUTUMN/WINTER 20
In the late 1950's and early 1960's, California was rife with youth-driven hot-rod car clubs and enthusiasts where the only thing more iconic than the cars of that era, were the ivy-league styled club members themselves. Rigged out in an eclectic array of varsity and sports jackets, car clubs across the state made their presence known with patch stitched jackets baring their club's name and colours.
In 1973, George Lucus directed American Graffiti, a film that celebrated the car club culture of this era and told the story of 'The Pharaoh's'. The film soon became a cult classic reference point for any vintage reproduction garment manufacture and as since, jackets cut in this style have been named the same as this latest arrival from Trophy Clothing - "Pharaoh Jackets".
PHARAOH WOOL COAT
Inspired by the vintage sport jackets of the 1950’s, this high-density woven melton wool coat offers the look and feel of a vintage garment whilst being formalised in a modern silhouette.
The ribbed collar and cuffs are constructed from a soft, contrasting cotton which have a snug but comfortable fit. The lining is made from 100% cupro cotton which is formed entirely from plant-based materials. Finished with a large Talon zip, twin handwarmer pockets and button adjustable side cinches.
1607 NARROW "DIRT DENIM"
Constructed from Trophy’s very own 14.5oz selvedge “dirt denim”. Given the name “dirt denim” for its uneven and slubby characteristics that with extended wear gives an even, low contrast fade. The denim is woven in Okayama on vintage power looms that require skilled operators with a vast knowledge of maintaining the machinery in order to keep production running smoothly.
WORKERS LOGO TRUCKER CAP
Constructed from Trophy Clothing’s signature “Blackie Denim” and assembled using chain stitch construction, a method highly uncommon even among Japan’s ever-growing vintage production factories.
The “Workers Logo” motif draws inspiration from logos used at the height of American workwear production, which are all a play on the original Levi’s logo of the 19th century showing two horses pulling apart a pair of jeans.
