The best products are still made from scratch, by hand with love and the old fashioned way using techniques that may seem outdated to some while preserving a rich craft and tradition to others. Those products are especially special when it comes to clothing, garments and vintage wears which can last a lifetime because of the pride and craftsmanship put into it.
Recently arriving in the post was a custom 1 of 1 varsity jacket crafted by Huckmade in Atlanta who specialize in vintage chainstitch and chenille embroidery. Huckmade’s tag describe’s him and his business perfectly, “Bespoke chainstitch, chenille and tackle twill garments on antique machines by a nerd”. Honestly, I feel like that only touches on the surface of this gentlemen that started the business in 1994 and has since gone on to work with some major brands including our friends over at Ebbets Field Flannels, Nike, Disney MGM Studios, Neiman Marcus, George Tech, High Museum of Art and more. Although Huckmade is busy working with the big wigs, he still finds time to turn out projects like the custom Nostalgia King varsity and work with fellow DJ fam, We Funk on their recent acquisition as well as customs for independent photographers / filmakers, Hip Hop artists and more.
The quality of what Huckmade delivers is unmatched and every piece is given great care and attention to detail with the stitching. No assembly line antics here, just a one man operation that creates and oversees the process from beginning to end taking a vision and turning it into a reality. We’re all about antique and vintage here at Nostalgia King so seeing Huckmade go the extra mile when working on older machines, there’s an obvious difference in the quality that’s turned out which sets him a part from others doing similar things.
