The Cooper Collection

The Cooper Collection combines revived artisan techniques with forward-thinking design. Inspired by our founder, Morris Cooper and our roots in East London, the limited edition range is as innovative as it is timeless. Launching globally online and in London at our pop-up store, the collection consists of three clean and classic denim designs for men and women: a slim, straight and tapered leg.

Craftmanship

Our heritage and traditional techniques are captured in The Cooper Collection, from engraving the concealed back pocket rivets with Lee Cooper’s founding year of 1908, through to performing all of the chain-stitching on the jeans with a genuine Union Special Machine. Other heritage details include vintage bar-tack belt loops and 210g of internal cotton pocketing. Add to that 100% copper hardware and modern flourishes such as natural stretch in some style, and each pair of jeans is rich with subtle finishing touches ready for a lifetime of wears without breaking.

Fabric

Each piece from our exclusive collection is handmade from the finest Italian blue selvedge denim, with styles offered in15.3oz and 10.7oz weights. Best worn raw and kept unwashed, the fabric is made with rope-dyed natural indigo that breaks in over time to give the denim your very own look and feel. With details including a 31” vintage weave and natural stretch in select designs, The Cooper Collection is a blend of both traditional practices and advance garment technology.

Selvedge

Selvedge refers to the self-binding edge of the denim that seals the hem of the jean without any fraying. It is a defining method of shuttle-loom weaving, leaving one continuous yarn at the edge of our premium denim, and marking it with a sign of enduring quality.

The Shop

With three distinct fits for men and women, each style of The Cooper Collection is deeply rooted in Lee Cooper’s workwear heritage. The modern updates have been inspired by East London today, the creative hub that was the birthplace of this quintessentially British label.
