BLACKBIRD– A CELEBRATION OF DENIM & MACHINE | THIS FRIDAY 7-10PM

-

Just a friendly reminder that the event is this Friday evening. We will be shutting down RSVP sign-up promptly at NOON, Thursday 4/12. The response has been incredible, thanks to all who are coming, and sign up now if you haven’t already. There will be beer by The Brooklyn Brewery and spirits generously provided by our friends at Art in the Age. A taco truck will mosey on over and park outside Fast Ashley’s for your convenience. We’ll be giving away some goodies as well. Look forward to seeing you there!

I hope to see you all there for what will be an epic night. A night that was born many months ago when Donwan (of PRPS) and I decided to collaborate on a limited edition jean run of 13 pairs of badass jeans for The Selvedge Yard called the Blackbird. What was the inspiration? The iconic ’53 Triumph Blackbird motorcycle, a sexy-as-all-hell Thunderbird offered for the first time ever by Triumph in all black. Also– the 13 Rebels MC, who inspired 1951′s The Wild One starring Marlon Brando who rode his own Triumph bike in the film. The Blackbird jean is handmade in Japan from the best selvedge denim you can get your hands on – 14oz raw chunky goodness that may out-live us all.


There will also be original photography by our friend, the extraordinary Scott Toepfer. The guys at Triumph Motorcycles were good enough to deliver an original ’53 Blackbird, and a sweet new Thunderbird, as eye candy. There will be beverages, goodies, music… oh, and we’ll give away some of these here jeans. Sound good?

Ok, see you there. JP

  1. Well, Southern France is going to be quite far away from you, but I’ll be thinking about you !
    Enjoy !

  2. JP – it was cool for my wife and I to meet you Friday night at Fast Ashley’s. The jeans look and feel great. The people that won the drawing are especially lucky to own them. It’s too bad you only made a limited run cause I’m sure many who attended besides myself would’ve have loved to buy a pair!

    • Steve, it was so fun meeting you and your better half. Thank you do much for coming out and enjoying the evening with me.

      Best,

      JP

  3. Last nights event was amazing. The bikes on display were gorgeous, especially the ’53. I was fortunate to be amongst the “lucky” one’s to now own a pair of the limited edition jeans, and for that I wanted to say thank you for hosting the event. Cheers!
