About the The Buckle Back Jean in Selvedge Denim with the Gunsmith Finish

Rampant Colt

Sam Colt was an innovator in many ways, he was among the first to harness the power of the brand name and image. For example, Colt used a four-headed colt image inlaid into the first pistols he ever made in Patterson New Jersey. He began developing the idea of the Colt as a representation for the brand. As his ideas of the colt imagery grew so did the size of his business and the opportunity to use them at scale. There are literally hundreds of colt images that have been uses as engravings, letterhead, stamps and even as the lead image on the stock certificates of the 1940s.

Colt Signature

Fortunately for us Sam Colt had great penmanship. The signature we use comes directly from a letter that exists which he signed and dated. There are many such documents and on every one his signature is just as crisp and clean. This signature started the thread of authenticity that weaves throughout Colt Manufacturing.
