Paul Smith’s Red Ear Jeans collection reflects a love of traditional work wear and jeans. Cotton is sourced from around the world and various types and length of yarn make each Red Ear Denim different in character. This is spun, Hank dyed and woven on wooden shuttle looms in Japan. The jeans are sent together with a traditional chain stitch, which allows seams to stretch without breaking and allows the seams to wrinkle and slightly pucker with washing giving real character and texture. Eclectic designs are inspired by traditional English work clothing from Paul’s own archive.
