Denim Tears’ Latest Collection Celebrates "Ming the Tiger of Harlem"
Featuring a new basketball jersey, jogging bottoms, and a long-sleeved polo shirt.
Denim Tears has just presented its “Ming the Tiger of Harlem” collection. For this, the brand explore a range of militarian prints alongside basketball jersey silhouettes and outerwear, all of which are inspired by a literal tiger that was discovered living in a Harlem apartment between the years of 2000 and 2003.
Usually, Denim Tears is best known for its unique takes on Levi’s denim, while the brand is also open to collaboration, with recent projects seeing them link up with the likes of Skepta and Stüssy. In addition to this, Denim Tears’ founder, Tremaine Emory, has been approached by the likes of Supreme and Dior to get involved in their operations.
The collection starts with a military-print co-ord set, the duo is designed with a sharp collar on the jacket — with both garments also featuring splashes of orange that include “Ming the Tiger of Harlem” branding. Additionally, the collection also includes interesting takes on knitwear with a statement, orange crewneck jumper arriving with a distressed American flag across the chest.
Other highlights come in the form of heavy-set outerwear, a long-sleeved polo shirt, jogging bottoms, and a Denim Tears-branded basketball vest which comes with customary branding and more “Ming the Tiger of Harlem” features.
