Carhartt UPcycled & Reworked

Carhartt UPcycled & Reworked

With so many of our homies working in either the bar and hospitality industry, and/or artisans of some type, it's no surprise aprons have become a major category in-shop here at Grey Hearts. Not only do we stock premium aprons from our good friends at Search Rescue Denim, but we've also begun custom-making aprons for clients from a range of occupations (more on those collaborations soon). Most recently though, we jumped into our rework bag and upcycled a vintage pair of Carhartt double-front work pants - transforming them into a one-off utility apron.  Featuring a cross-back strap for comfort and...

Kanada Day Kick Back

Kanada Day Kick Back

What a Canada (Kanada) Day it was this year - first one here at the shop, and definitely the start of a new tradition. In light of the current social landscape (read "pandemic"), we kept the gathering modest in size... however, the grill was fired up by 11am, and the first bottles were popped and flowing shortly thereafter.

"Loverboy" - Denim Scratcher x Grey Hearts Denim Jacket Collab

So let me start by telling you alil about our guy "Loverboy"... we crossed paths almost a year ago now, and pretty much hit it off from the jump. A larger fella, alittle rough around the edges and abit of a drifter with plenty of stories to tell - some heartwarming and some heartbreaking... definitely wears his heart on his sleeve, but a certified badass all the same. *** Our homie Baylan (aka the "Denim Scratcher") has been killing us with dope-ass hand-embroidered pieces lately, so we hollered at him to jump on a vintage Lee denim jacket and put his...

Grey Hearts Denim Premium Mask Drop

Grey Hearts Denim Premium Mask Drop

  The first masks we dropped were up-cycled from raw selvedge denim. Although on the lighter side of medium weight, the mask was still better suited to early spring conditions; so with the Summer fast approaching, and the requests for denim masks growing, we were left with only one option... Lightweight denim masks for the summer. Thanks to the homies, we were able to acquire a fair amount of Levis' "damaged" samples for reworking... two box loads... and one of those boxes was entirely women's denim jeans; that meant lightweight denim with stretch - exactly what the denim doctor ordered....
