We began Number Six back in 2009, with the idea to take a relaxed approach to providing East London with some decent menswear. It's been our mission ever since to travel the world to handpick a collection of brands that we really believe in.
One of our best-loved brands is Spain’s very own Lois Jeans. Established in 1962, these guys have been focused on making clothing that’s as functional as it is stylish, right from the get-go. Lois Jeans came into their own during the glorious 70s, when sporting legends (and style icons) of the time, like Björn Borg and Johan Cruyff, started donning the brand. It wasn't long before the rest of the world caught on, with everyone realising Lois provided a perfect fit every time.
"Clothing centred around timeless design"
Just like Number Six, Lois Jeans have created a collection of clothing that’s centred around quality, longevity, and timeless design. With this in mind, we wanted to do something a bit special to celebrate our mutual appreciation for well-considered design.
Influenced by a single piece of traditional French workwear that we found on our travels back in 2011, the Lois Jeans Needle Cord Work Jacket takes its shape from some of the world’s most classic design. We chose to update the silhouette by crafting the jacket out of a lightweight needle cord, to create something both contemporary, and timeless. And, just like any half-decent workwear should, it’s been garment dyed using a deep indigo that’s designed to fade beautifully over time. It’s built to last, and through prolonged wear, it will start to develop fade patterns that are totally unique to the wearer. Just like us lot at Number Six HQ, it ages well.
"Built to last"
We’re proud to present a global exclusive on the first, and only ever Lois Jeans Work Jacket. Handmade in Spain, this jacket symbolises a lot of our shared values between the Lois team, and our own. By going against seasonality, the lifespan of this jacket is endless, and we’re encouraging our wearers to keep it going all year round. Whether it’s layered up properly, or worn over a single t-shirt, it’s lightweight enough to work well no matter the season.
"A global exclusive"
Since day one, we’ve cared more about whether clothing will last for a decade, rather than a season. So, when we suggested to the Lois Jeans team that a bit of classic workwear might complete the collection, it quickly became a no-brainer. We’re expanding and developing every day, and stocking a global exclusive is another step forwards. By choosing to shop with Number Six, you’re helping to support authentic, independent business. Established by a group of real Londoners, we’re dedicated to providing a cracking selection of menswear. This now includes being the world’s only stockists of the Lois Jeans Needle Cord Work Jacket.
So, here's to a few good mates keeping a shared passion alive.
