Cool Pete 14oz.
As my name tells you, I carry the blue blood of my ancestors in me. Cool Pete they call me; the Dutch coal-miner. The first-born of the Grivec-family. The special one that never got away. I will never go away. I am here to be everybody’s best friend. Reliable, honest, always there to support you. I will blend in when you want me to — and stand out when I’m allowed. Back in 2016, I was born as a regular straight tapered, 14-ounce Japanese red selvedge denim, weighing a solid 1-kilogram. I’ve got the signature back-pocket ’triangle’ stitch, the grained leather patch on my back and antique 13-star brass buttons. I am a true Grivec.
“Cool Pete will always be our special one. He was the first pair of jeans Roger and I created for our label in 2016. It took us two years and countless sleepless nights to craft him. I can still remember when I first saw Cool Pete. I was in Portugal to observe the first sample of him (we didn’t yet have our atelier in Chevremont). With tears in my eyes I called my brother: “Roger, we did it! I’m taking him back home.” – Marcel Grivec, Grivec Bros.
We’re suckers for things in life that are becoming more beautiful with time.
Our main passion, and business, is creating unwashed pairs of handmade jeans in our atelier. The fact that they’re made with untreated fabric, hence unwashed, means that you will have to wear your pair from scratch. So, when you’re slipping in your new fresh pair, your will start your denim journey. The journey of creating naturally your ultimate pair of jeans.
Your jeans will be more comfortable each day as they will mold your own body. The fabric will soften, and your lifestyle will reflect in the jeans. Your daily behavior is giving your jeans more character with the scars, rips, and fades. To witness this process is something magical to us.
Cool Pete 14oz.
I am sorry.. Sorry it took me this long to finally get round to buy myself my first piece of Chevremont’s craftsmanship. Clearly manufactured with the greatest care and love for detail, this pair of Cool Pete's in mouth watering 14oz Kaihara selfedge fabric was on my wish list for a long, I mean really long time. Marcel and Roger are two of the most genuine and knowledgable people that I know of in the denim industry, so it is with due pride that I will start wearing-in this Chevremont rooted gem. And with pleasure, I continue to spread the story about the Grivec Bros and their philosophy.
Keep on rockin’ in the free world guys!
