At only 20-years old C.C. Hudson from Spring Hill Farm in Tennessee leaves his home in 1897 to find work in the growing town of Greenboro, North Carolina.
He got his first job in a textile factory that produces overalls. For 25 cents a day he was sewing on buttons. In 1904 this factory was closing its doors and C.C. Hudson saw his chance to open his own business. He and some colleagues opened their own company: the Hudson Overall Company.
In 1919 the company name was changed to “Blue Bell Overall Company”.
In 1943 they acquired a company named “Casey Jones Work-Clothes” and with it a brand name that shall make them famous in the future: This brand name is “Wrangler“.
In 1997 the Brand ‘Wrangler” had its 50th anniversary – 100 years after C.C. Hudson went to Greensboro, NC.
We at Wood believe that This story is testament to age old adage that quality will always show through,
David Beckham is seen at the Lakers game here in a Wrangler Shirt, Blue Bell shirt and again leaving for the States after the England game at Wembley in a Wrangler Shirt.
David Beckham has his own iniquitous style but maybe he has finally caught up with the likes of us and found that Heritage product is here to stay.

Chino pants/trousers, or simply chinos, are a type of lightweight cotton trousers made from chino cloth in a twill weave. Though they are sometimes confused with khakis, as they are usually khaki in color, chinos are of typically dressier style similar to that of suit trousers and as such can be considered a smart casual form of dress.
Well thats what they used to say back in the swinging 60′s or in an episode of Quantum Leap ,but we who are cut from a different cloth and like to be known that way say that we will wear what we want when we want, well almost ; )
Dr Denim have produced some of the best Chinos around and we are proud to be selling them here at Wood.
They are cut with a narrow 7 inch hem and have a low crotch.
Best of all they are in 4 colours Dr Denim Donk Chino in Khaki, Dr Denim Donk Chino in Ash Grey , Dr Denim Donk Chino in Navy Blue and soon come Dr Denim Donk Chino in Dark Grey.

……was i dreamin or is this is match made in heaven ……This is one fine watch Rolex x Hiroshi Fujiwara.
Hiroshi San ( or should we call him Sensei ) is one of the Kings of Style and this Colab with Rolex adds to that catalogue of style he has, this teases you with a glimpse into his collection of custom Rolex Oyster Perpetual Air-King. All I can say is two Kings together produce a timeless peace (get it).
