Sugar Cane have thoroughly analyzed our forerunners jeans from the 1900 ’ s in chronicle order from yarn, dye, weave and construction to components . We have with us the actual results of fabric woven and colour fade test on the original pants worn. In order to create our own original jeans, it took over 20 years of research. To perfectly reproduce denim fabrics from 50 to 100 years ago in today ’ s advanced period is extremely difficult. To begin with we had to look for old power looms that had worked to weave denim fabric in those days, restore them and adjust them to weave the fabric we have. It was not easy to revive the old machines that disappeared a long time ago due to rationalization. Nowadays, the old power looms are not so unusual but in the early research stage, satisfactory fabrics could not be woven on the old looms found. It was a joint operation with the weaver of trial and failure and advanced step by step.
Yarn is also a very important factor for vintage denim; the cotton is carefully selected, blended, spun and indigo dyed exclusively for each model. Through many processes we finally had success in developing perfect vintage denim of which the surface looks rough and uneven, and indigo warp yarn fades like original old vintage denim. We believe that authentic vintage jeans can only be revived by the same process as original jeans and so had to search for a sewing factory that still has old sewing machines and experienced sewers. Our denim fabrics, after inspection, are delivered to our sewing factory to be cut and sewn. Also the original rivets, buttons and patch are put on by the bands of well-skilled workers. Every pair of Sugar Cane jeans is completed this way.

Uniquely Japanese denim made from — you guessed it- sugar cane. For many years, Sugar Cane Jeans were a ferociously guarded Japanese secret but today the brand is attracting global attention. Interestingly, Sugar Cane prefer to use the vintage term ‘dungarees’ in preference to the term ‘jeans’ to describe their product: “The word ‘jeans’ has become the vernacular for faux denim fashion wear that masquerades as the tough, classic waist overalls history made famous.

Zurich, Switzerland is home to DeeCee style which houses a treasure trove of exclusive brands including the legendary Sugar Cane jeans and the Whitesville Collection. For anyone looking for a jacket that stands out from the crowd you can’t beat a Whitesville.
Sugar Cane’s Whitesville Collection focuses on vintage sports and athletic wear from the Good Old Days, with a substantial emphasis on leather-sleeved Letterman Jackets. 2008 is the first year we have imported the Whitesville Collection to North America and this classic Letterman Jacket is at the heart of the collection. Sugar Cane has again surpassed all expectations with their Whitesville Collection of Letterman Jackets, utilizing vintage machinery and production techniques to manufacture garments that are in every way of the highest quality and that employ a keen attention to bygone detailing. While most of the Whitesville Letterman Jackets have a theme derived from bygone sports teams and athletic associations, this example is our personal favorite from the 2008 collection, based on the 1950’s Wild Child Motorcycle Club, evocative of the rebellious, bad-boy image personified in 1950’s Hollywood films by the likes of Marlon Brando, Lee Marvin and James Dean. This Whitesville Letterman Jacket is unlike anything you’ve ever encountered for sale before; not intended for the masses, the pedigree of this garment is truly a head-turning, jaw-dropping masterwork of prime exclusivity. Manufactured using only non-synthetic fibers, such as pure cotton or wool, and made to truly function, endure and keep you warm, just as the original examples once did and so unlike cheesy, look-a-like Letterman Jackets commonly found elsewhere for a fraction of the cost of this Sugar Cane Whitesville treasure. And just as with all the Whitesville Jackets, this example is a LIMITED EDITION produced in extremely small numbers and never to be repeated again beyond the 2008 season. That’s right – once this model sells out, that’s the end – no more will be made and the fortunate few who own one will have the added benefit and pride in knowing their purchase may appreciate in value and that they won’t likely see someone else wearing the same jacket in their travels. Get set to be blown away with this jacket in EVERY respect, from quality in vintage-style materials, weight, detailing, workmanship and artwork, to fit and styling. Please take note of these meticulously detailed bygone features found only on a Sugar Cane Whitesville Jacket:
• Exact copy of the original Whitesville labeling and the Whitesville name chain stitched in the left pocket
• Premium, full-grain, 3.5-ounce, vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed leather sleeves crafted from imported Italian hides
• All-wool chenille embroidery badges on chest and sleeves manufactured on vintage shuttle looms
• All-cotton chain-stitched lettering and embroidery on sleeves and jacket back – the entire artwork on back depicting the skull and bones, spider, spider web and the Wild Child Motor Co. name are all fully chain stitched or embroidered!
• Heavy-weight worsted-wool knit cuffs, collar and waistband; the collar and cuffs are doubled over, exactly as found on the original examples
• Custom manufacturing of the correct, heavy-weight all-wool jacket body produced on vintage looms
• Diamond-quilted inner lining manufactured from genuine rayon acetate and backed with all-wool fiber filling for increased warmth – no polyester or mixed blends are employed on this jacket
• Nickel-plated press studs on the frontal closure, with black-lacquered dome coverings.

Sugar Cane Jeans are constructed of fibres derived from the plant that gave rise to the brand name SUGAR CANE. Sugar is made from sugar cane, which seems simple enough, but not everyone knows that sugar cane and its byproducts contain essential amino acids and enzymes necessary to fuel and rejuvenate our bodies. Likewise, byproducts from sugar cane are used to fuel automobiles in Brazil in order to have a less harmful impact on the environment rather than found in burned fuels of a purely fossil origin. Following these facts in a rather philosophical approach, the textile specialists at Sugar Cane were the first in the world to produce a selvage denim fabric made from woven cotton yarns and sugar cane fibres .
