Man Talk Food is going Man Talk Style today, thanks to a fun collaboration between Bulleit Bourbon, and Noble Denim. The American-made denim company is releasing a limited edition line of denim jean jackets which were partially aged in Bulleit barrels.
So how in the world does that actually work? The folks at Noble Denim took the corduroy collars used for the jackets, and aged them in a freshly-dumped barrel from Bulleit for several weeks. Starting out white, the corduroy morphed into a sandy, lightly orange tinted color which works well with the denim itself.
The new jackets from Noble will be available in a limited quantity starting in mid-November. Find them at NobleDenim.com, as well as at the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience at Stitzel-Weller, and select other retailers, including at Manready in Texas, Tanner Goods in Portland, and at the Pop Up Flea in New York City.

This isn’t the first collaboration from the two companies, either. The Noble and Bulleit tandem actually first paired up in 2014, with a similarly conceptualized line of barrel-aged jeans.
Also, stay tuned for the release of several exclusive promotional videos incorporating Bulleit, Noble, and the indie band Houndmouth which joined in on the fun as well.
