MADE NEW

Denham’s designers took their inspiration seriously. After locating two examples of the coat—one at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in California and the other at an annual fair for military buffs in Kent, England—they dismantled one of them to learn more about its design and construction.

The fabrics themselves came from a stall at War & Peace’s 2011 outing. “The dealer in question charmed us with her personality first, and then did us the favor or allowing us to preview her secret stash of history-rich vintage materials,” the design team says.

Inspired by “denimcraft”—Denham’s tent-pole product is its jeans—the company decided to dip-dye the fabrics by hand.

The ladies are also welcome to a piece of the action. Denham used the same materials to create a version of its popular “Trouper” fishtail parka for women.
