It’s good to have a local denim specialist.
Godspeed in Fitzroy, Melbourne stock some pretty cool Japanese & American makers and offer all manners of denim services.
Martin also has some pretty impressive faded jeans from Iron Heart and The Flat Head.
The pair featured on the wall currently is a pair of Railcar’s worn by a local stonemason named Lee – he beats them up pretty good…apparently this pair was only a few weeks old!
A few vintage machines lie about.
There’s a Chandler for darning, a Rimoldi for hemming, and a recent addition of a single-needle which I didn’t see.
Some other cool bits and pieces lie about, including some indigo dyed dry goods from Buaisou, pomade from Railcar and some leather/fabric care goods from Tangent Garment Care.
The shop’s building up to being a very cool space.
Definitely recommend a visit if you’re ever around Melbourne’s CBD – Godspeed is only a 5 minute tram trip away!
Or, have a look at their website.
