    FW18 Leather - they are coming soon

    Zam Barrett Zfactorie as a research and design company, proceeds in two ways to create the products we offer to our clients
    We are always drawing inspiration from our varying sources and using that as a means of creating the new items we offer to you. the other route is once we create a product, we are constantly reviewing, to see how and where we can improve the product, whether in the form of fit, quality of materials, construction, or in the form of aesthetic appeal.
    The exception to this is always that there is the rare instance, where a product is so good, so perfect that after reviewing, it doesn't make sense to change a single thing.

    We are not about change, simply for the sake of changing, sometimes its just sensible to leave a good thing alone - Our High Neck Inner Leather Jacket is one such thing. Created in our Fall 2013 collection, the jacket was symbolic of the human body, which on the surface it looks simple and minimal, but within is a whole myriad of complexities not seen from the outside. From our internal organs, our nervous system, digestive system, circulatory system etc. the Jacket, like the human body is more that what meets the eye.
    We have tried on several occasions to "improve" the Jacket but in every instance, the original was always better that the changes made. So we resigned to keep it a classic, untouched and identical to the original iteration in Fall 2013.
    For Fall 2018 we are offering this Iconic and sought after piece in two colorways.

    1. Red with a black Inner.
    2. Black With Red Inner.
    The First will be released on Zfactorie this Friday, as always only one in each size will be made from size 44 -54.
    Here below is a preview of the Jacket, we hope you enjoy it.

    Nice! :)
    I'm still wearing the first iteration on a regular basis (in fact right now on my way to work too).
    Can't make enough compliments about that jacket. After all those years it feels almost like a part of my own body. :)

    EARLIER TODAY WE PROMISED YOU THIS POST.
    After a long hectic day we are glad to give you a good read to enjoy your weekend.



    Often times running a business, we get distracted with sales, promotions etc, but projects like these remind us that we are first and foremost a design and manufacturing company, who is unwavering in our commitment to the business of making great artisanal products that our customers know and love.
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be doing a series of product reviews and insights to give you a behind the scenes view of great things going on at Zfactorie and not just sales promotions
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Today we start with a pair of Civilian Soft J Pants that is a simplified variant of our revered Militia Combat Pants.
    For those of you who have followed the Zam Barrett Dialogue brand over the years, you all know our Militia Combat pants is one of the most rare, expensive yet sought after pants that we have ever produced

    The pants retailed for over $1300 USD, was sold out everywhere, but was never produced again in mass quantities because it took two tailors 1.5 days to make in order to remain faithful to the design. Ever so Often we get request for a custom pair and we try to honor the request for the customer appreciative of the piece and willing to pay the cost to acquire it (we have two pairs on order now)

    THE ORIGINAL MILITIA COMBAT PANTS.

    We had a customer who ordered a pair of these and told us he didn't care, the cost was not going to stop him form acquiring them, he just had to have one.
    We made a special 1 of 1 pair for him that was dyed a special green according to his request. He loved the pants so much he wanted another pair with the same fit, but without all the details of the original iteration. He essentially wanted an easier to wear, street friendly version of the pant. if the original Militia Pants was Couture, he wanted the ready to wear version.
    We also liked the idea of a simpler version, as the Soft J combined with the slight drop crotch made for a very interesting silhouette.




    The customer wanted a similar weight as the original heavy linen version, we got him a cotton/ linen blend canvas with a very dense weave. We kept the seat reinforcements that were a part of the original version, but removed the elastic panels and knee patch and cargo pockets to simplify the pant. same fit, but a sleeker easier to wear and more minimal design




    The original welted front pockets remain on the street version, but we added a zipper and a semi stitched flap to cover the pockets and front zipper when worn




    Zipper detail on Pocket




    The back pockets are very similar to the original iteration where the flap covers the button closure that is not visible when worn and securing whatever the wearer places in the pocket




    Original Militia back pockets


    DYE TREATMENT:
    This was the hardest part of the pants, the customer wanted OLIVE to be the final color of the garment. The fabric was originally an off white canvas. We had never dyed olive before, and had to do a 3 stage dyeing process to achieve the color and the "Marbled" texture we wanted on the pants.
    The first stage was to dye the pants a tan color which became the base. The second stage was to mix a grey-green dye that we used for the second stage that gave us the marbled texture but was somewhat off in shade.
    We then had to dye grey watching the garment in the dye bath until we got just a shade darker than desired. generally dyed dry a shade lighter than the color they are when wet, so once we achieved that we knew we had accomplished the mission.

    FW18 marks the return of the iconic TRI ZIP Leather jacket to our offerings. a jacket that we have always made in small rare quantities and only during the fall season. For Fall 2018 the Jacket is offered in RED cowhide and we thought it fitting to give you a historical overview of the jacket from its inception to the current season


    Here is a picture of the original prototype pf the jacket. it was the only one that was made in Porcine leather. The underlying layer of the jacket was grey, but it was coated black and was shown during Paris Men's market for the FW13/14 season


    The Jacket in its first season was ordered by only one store in Japan - John Bull private Lab, which ordered 8 peices and along with the additional 5 peices that were produced for Zam Barrett - Zfactorie. A total of 14 examples were made that season in Black Deerskin leather. Interestingly, it was the only time that a full production run of the Jacket was made in black. Somehow each season it seems the jacket that makes in to production is always as rare a color as there are the number of peices made


    The second iteration of the Jacket became its main personality where the jacket was made in horsehide leather and overdyed a bluish-grey. Eight examples of this iteration was made and sold to some of out most esteemed customers

    Front -




    Here is the back of the jacket. This example had the two Zipper at the back hem that allows the wearer to tighten and loosen the hem of the jacket as desired. the succeeding examples we removed this feature in order to make the jacket more minimal.




    This Maroon Iteration was released for the FW17 season. It was the fasted selling jacket we ever had. two was spoken for BEFORE the production was made. we sold three of them in the first day of release, with two of them sold within the first hour of being released. This iteration was also made in horsehide and sold to some really special customers who appreciates the design, the craftsmanship and the attention to detail in the jacket


    Here is a very Special Customer of ours wearing his example, styled with blue Jeans and a wonderful scarf that does true justice to the beauty of this piece. The fit, the settings, the color combinations are just perfect and shows how visionary customers can take a piece and style it in a way that is entirely their own, and often in surprising ways we never imagined




    The current season Jacket is offered in red cowhide, we had intended to offer it this season in black, but somehow we love the specialness and fun of offering this jacket every season in a non black, interesting colorway. We think it is fun to see what colors we can create each FALL WINTER season that keeps the jacket rare, interesting and creative. We already offer a lot of other jackets in black so Its sensible to keep other things special




    We have experimented before with a Tri Zip Bomber Jacket. while we liked the Jacket, we are of the conviction that the design works best with the high Neck iteration and probably should be left untouched in that regard. the high neck, the sloping raglan shoulders and the aggressiveness of the zipper configuration created a look that is aesthetically perfect for the Zam Barrett aesthetic and we are of the view that the raglan iteration while beutiful in its own right dos not accomplish that
