Heller's Cafe Warehouse Homage Collage

Heller's Cafe and Warehouse have put together a new line of very convincing vintage-inspired workwear pieces. They look and feel like the real deal vintage you may find in the collection of Heller's Cafe minus the smell. Beautiful construction but the emphasis is definitely wash and trims.

The collaboration line marries the exceptional strengths of both parties. Heller's Cafe has one of the strongest vintage workwear collections in the world and owner Larry McKaughan can genuinely be called an expert. Many museum-quality vintage denim and archive-worthy Levi's have passed through his hands but he admits his love is for the beautiful denim piece from an obscure brand few have ever heard of.

That is why I have been eager to see the results of Larry’s efforts with Japan's famously vintage-obsessed Warehouse Company who makes some of the most beautifully sewn jeans in the world.

What follows is a collage of details that show what they did and by the end hopefully explains why they do what they do.

I have to say what others won't (or simply don't care about): I find the use of "Union Made", and in some Heller's Cafe examples, the exact copying of US union labels, offensive to say the least. I'm sure it's also illegal.

The neutralization of the meaning of that term into some sort of "american" detail not to be overlooked is shameful. Really.
