Absolutely wonderful lat 1940’s early 1950’s light coloured sanforized denim set. This wonderful set is made out of sanforized denim. Which means the denim has been stretched, fixed and shrunk in length at the mill. This is done in order to reduce the amount of shrinkage that can happen after your jeans’ first wash. The result of sanforization leads to 1-3% shrinkage, as opposed to 10% shrinkage with unsanforized (shrink to fit) denim. The idea of sanforized fabric was brought to life by an American businessman and inventor, Sanford Lockwood Cluett. The idea was developed in 1928 and patented in 1930.
This beautiful light wash set has wonderful faux pockets on the top with plaited detailing on the collar. The shorts also have plaited details on the front where the two pockets are.
The top / jacket opens with buttons down the front and the shorts have a back metal zip with buttons as it’s opening and closing.
