Gilded Age Releases a Denim Line Inspired by New York’s Docks

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on demand through Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

NYC-based premium denim brand Gilded Age released a collection inspired by the New York docks and core imports of the past.

“Sugar, coffee, tobacco, rum: these are things no one can get rid of,” said Stefan Miljanic, Gilded Age designer and creative director.

The collection has a carefully designed patina and hardness, featuring fabrics that appear crinkled and tinted. Miljanic focused on denim that looks authentically worn: one style features a faded square on the back pocket that gives the effect of someone carrying a phone or wallet in his back pocket for a period of time.

The line features medium and light selvedge and non-selvedge stretch with high-quality Italian, Japanese and American fabrics, including denim from Candiani and Cone Mills.

A highlight of the collection is a natural indigo selvedge denim done in a rare 13 oz. slubby Japanese denim. Each pair of jeans made in this unique fabric is stamped inside with a name and number.
