The hooligans and misfits behind Bandit Photographer, Old North and W.H. Ranch Dungarees have defied logic, abandoned all good senses and banded together to form The Lower 48.  The first collaboration of it's kind between a jean maker, a photographer and a store front.  The collection will primarily focus on work wear inspired clothing with a nod to the style of the Old West. The centerpiece of this collaboration is the called the Roughneck, a double kneed, workwear inspired dungaree made from premium Japanese Selvage denim.  Standard features include:
  • Bench-Made Single-Needle Construction
- one man, one pair of jeans at a time from start to finish.

  • Riser Seams in favor of standard machined felled seams add extra durability
 - a popular technique on turn of the century work wear.

  • Triple stitch, single-needle
  • Black Kuroki Mills (Japan) 15oz Sanforized Pink Line Selvage
  • Double Knee panel for extra durablility
  • Side slant entry pockets
  • Utility pocket
  • Self-enclosed components
 - each piece of these Dungarees are a product in themselves. (No raw fabric edges or overlocked edges.)
  • Heavy 10oz. drill cloth pocket bags (Made in USA)

  • Heavy Tex 80 cotton/poly thread (Made in USA)

  • Roped Hems

  • YKK Pure Copper Buttons (Made in USA)

  • Pure Copper hand-set rivets and burrs (Made in USA)

  • Tacked back pockets for added durability and strength
  • Hand branded hair on hide label

  • Extra-heavy belt loops

 - custom inseams upon request

LLRP Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol Photo Book

     My good friend Jay Borman finished his first book on the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol. It is an incredible and rare look into the men who ran the recon for the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Jay has spent years getting content for the book. Including over 450 pages in a large format book with almost 1,000 photos taken by the men who were there. Most of the images are unpublished. Also featured are the brief histories of the units, detailed studies of uniforms and equipment, and spotlights on many veterans. The book is a limited edition of 500. Click this link to order:
