“I often like to compare my stores with how people perceive a house: it is never at its best when you just start to live there. Just like homes, stores need to ‘grow’.... But to tell you a secret: stores are also like haircuts; every now and then you see a picture from a few years back and you think ‘did I really look like that?!” Link in Bio for our interview with Menno from @tenuedenimes exploring a decade of retail lessons. Thank you Menno!

On Friday I went to visit an amazing store. @oggreenspans in Southgate is a magical place that’s been associated with car culture and Latino style for decades. The store itself has been open for 90 years! Stocking new and deadstock @dickies @carhartt @levis @wrangler @bendaviscompany and many more besides, it’s literally the most cavernous, crazy shop I’ve ever experienced. Please take a look at my stories to learn a little more. Shout out to my friend Ricardo for taking me there. He went to school two blocks away and without his help I would never have visited 🤘🏽

So I have this insane bright orange synthetic af vintage fleecy swim-club jacket covered in patches, including an old 80’s Star Wars patch and a giant shark patch on the back. It’s very very good. Steve @boogalooburns from Levi’s is mad about it and wanted me to keep an eye out for one for him. Well, Steve... do you want the good news or the bad news?! I now have 🤘🏽 and you still have👌🏽I’m sorry.

Yesterday in Portugal, @pizarro1983 celebrated their 35th anniversary with a special fashion show and student design competition held at their factory. We were lucky enough to attend and also take a tour of their factory. For those who don’t know, @pizarro1983 are Portugal’s leading supplier in denim laundry, finishing and printing. From ozone to laser and digital printing we got to see it all! Check our stories for more... Thank you for everything, guys!

For all you fabric geeks out there: we’ve gone through our photos from all the @kingpins_show season and put a little round-up of #denimdudesfabricinspiration on the site. Link in bio for new twills, hand-loomed stripes, flocked surfaces, jacquard destruction and technical shine. Thanks to #kurabo #ideablue #taiyuentextile #stellablu @496fabriclab #nihonmenpu #icedenim #kurokimills #collectdenim and @paulvogeldesign

@miriamdema made this amazing squash blossom necklace out of leather and I totally forgot to post about it when I saw it at the @eskina_space pop-up on Sunday. I’m fired, obviously 🤷🏼‍♀️

Let it be known that @conedenim does the best denim gifts. We managed to get our hands on one of their natural indigo dyed denim laptop cases and had it personalised by our buddy and chain stitch badass @g_miglietta

It’s @denimbypv in London today and tomorrow and we’ve been checking out the show, the presentations and panels. Couple of photos here from @paulvogeldesign and @_74mma_ more on stories. #denimbypv

I like having @jiandeleon in my life because even when I’m at my very coolest I realise I am like 7063 rungs further down the cool ladder than him. I have a lot to learn from this book 🤓 (good colour choice 💙)

Aw! Literally one of LA’s best. @debrisblanc knows more about denim design, sampling and laundry than most and luckily he’s a super nice guy too! Troy, mate I need to come n visit your pupper ASAP. Shot in NY at @kingpins_show last week by @lisaka10

I took this last week in NY but it’s too good for stories. @levis opened their largest flagship store in Times Square and the whole ground floor is dedicated to exclusive product, only available in this store, like these lasered lady liberties. If you wanna find out more about laser and how Levi’s are using it as an alternative to traditional washing, visit the site cos I wrote about it a while back. I can’t do a link in the bio cos there’s an even better article up there right now 😉
