Ready for some jean on jean action? That will be the case if you purchase one of these limited edition Brooks saddles and combine them with your Levi’s Commuter jeans. Yes, Brooks has teamed up with Levi’s Commuter to create a limited edition Cambium C17 with a denim covering. Last year, riders were urged to bring in their worn out jeans to Levi’s Commuter workspaces in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and London to help provide the coverings for the new saddles. Part of the idea was to use recycled denim to give it new life, which is where the donations came in. Anyone who took part in the promotion was given a coupon for 20% off Brooks and Levi’s goods, with a chance to win a saddle of their own.
Now that the denim has been collected and formed into saddles using the same vulcanization technique that was used to produce the original Cambium C17s, there are 1,000 of the custom saddles up for grabs…
Given the fact that each saddle is covered in recycled denim, every saddle made in Italy will be unique in some way. Due to the construction method, the Cambium C17 retains the same durable, waterproof, and comfortable fit of the original but with an all new look. Available now at the flagship B1866 store in London or online in the Brooks Shop, each saddle sells for £180 with an additional £12 shipping and duty to the U.S., bringing the total to right around $292. As the limited edition name would imply, once they’re gone, they’re gone – until you ruin some more jeans…
