Black project #5 Film

As part of the Black project Arco jacket release with C’H’C’M & Harris Tweed we decided to shoot a film in Glasgow with Brian Sweeney who has worked with the brand for many years.

Brian was also instrumental in introducing Mike Donald from http://thecroft.wordpress.com/ and in turn Mark Hogarth from Harris Tweed to Six Eight Seven Six.

These connections were formative in our understanding that we as a label could work with such a traditional supplier and that we could create a unique garment that still felt like a 6876 item.

New York & Glasgow: Two cities built on a grid system,both with a stand alone uniqueness and to this day when i visit Glasgow it always strikes me as a city yearning to the west and beyond.

Black Project #3 Good Measure M-68

 

Interpretation of a classic 6876 sweat,utilizing the original “freedom” raglan sleeve and loop back cotton fabric whilst constructing using the methods perfected on the Good Measure M-21.

The fabric itself is custom made using an Italian jaspe yarn which is produced by twisting two colours of thread together,in this case black and white which is knitted on an extremely rare English Wildt Mellor Bromley 3 thread knitting machine,which creates a very distinctive fabric finish.

Historically the colour of this particular yarn was known as “Newcastle”and appears to be a reference to Newcastle United Football club’s black and white stripe shirts.

Made in England 390 GSM and 100% cotton

Traditional fit,cover stitched seams which are bar tacked at the ends to add strength,back neck crescent and Six Eight Seven Six x Good Measure branding
SOLD OUT but available at Good Measure.
