Introducing half century jeans, the world’s first pair of jeans to come with a 50 year guarantee. Created by 26 year old designer, Deborah, who lives in London, the jeans are created using a special hybrid of materials. This includes Japanese selvedge denim, sourced from Okayama, and ultra – durable Spectra fibres, which has been measure to be 15x stronger than cable steel.
At the moment, there are few companies that hold a lifetime guarantee in the grand scheme of fast and changeable fashion, this is a credit held only by esteemed brands confident in their product, with Doc Martin and Blundstone Boots amongst the guarantors. Doing a little digging, on record the company that currently holds the title for the longest jeans guarantee is the more popular brand, Levis, with a guarantee of two years, making this new jean introduction a breath of fresh air to an otherwise fast fashion market.
The Half Century team are so confident with their product in fact, they proudly guarantee a free repair or replacement for the next 50 years should anything go wrong.
For Spring/ Summer 2018, jean trends include silhouette jeans, powdered colour tones and iconic indigos. But with half century jeans only appearing to have one shade and style of jeans on their website, can they keep up with the trends?
