Railcar Fine Goods Spikes X019 Tinted Weft

Railcar Fine Goods just released their tinted weft denim this past Saturday at their grand opening party. The faint brown tinted weft of the 13.75 oz. Japanese denim gives the indigo warp a nice depth. On top of that, there’s a nicely designed patch made especially for this piece that states the weight, which is a nice touch for those people who care about details.

Speaking of detail, it’s built to Railcar standards and Steven, the proprietor, oversees all the construction in-house at the new Monrovia factory. Triple-stitching. Riveted back pocket. Branded hardware. All in the classic Spikes fit.

A Guide: Camp Coffee

There are few things as ritualistic as coffee. People who love coffee have to have it the same way everyday, prepared like a religious ceremony.

The problem is that when you’re away from your normal environment the coffee goes to shit or you have to resort to some place like Starbucks.

Railcar’s Type 3 Classic Apron

Railcar Fine Goods, based in Arcadia, California, has put out some great stuff and their Type 3 Classic Apron is no different.

If you recognize that pocket, it’s because it’s based on the iconic Levi’s Type III denim jacket.

Add to it the 12 ounce Cone Mills denim and adjustable leather straps and you have one fine looking apron that will age more gracefully than Sean Connery. And possibly best of all, it’s made in-house by a crew of five and not contracted out. (It’s true, I’ve seen their shop firsthand.)

Now who will be the first to make denim boxer briefs I’ve always wanted?
