Edwin Film Release — FURTHER

Last Thursday, you might have missed it but there was a preview of Edwin’s Further; a short film following Edwin Europe and Kingdom of Kicks on their jaunt from London to Biarritz, in their Shoreditch store. Don’t cry because we have brought it to you here!

We can be sure now bikes are the new black! Press play on the super nice film below from Edwin about a bike ride to Biaritz that happened last summer. It’s a lovely film to accompany the latest lookbook with all the right close ups and a shiny black and white format on the gritty soundtrack by the American blues musician; Junior Kimbrough. The film show offs a selection of five-pocket fits in combination with various denim jackets and printed tees catching eyes. More, here in the film, it is nice to see Ornamental Conifer’s bike in there as well though as it’s a mad ride. Press play.

Us picky? Never


Last week, we gave some new cool denim stores in town just for us all to have more places to dive in. Today, we’re rounding up another denim heaven to hit up for the holiday. K.O.I. is the name. And it stands for -- King. Of. Indigo.

King of Indigo may be one of Amsterdam’s newest denim family members
But the label is accepted, so well that we couldn’t look further, as a leading sustainable denim brand in the market. They put the best foot forward when thinking about cool clothes that are environmentally friendly. The Dutch denim label Kings of Indigo does just this and launches a denim collection for spring 2012. At the K.O.I., they produces every garment with conscience by recycling and repairing. One thing we love most about the brand is that they make jeans with a great fit and conscience. Have your eyes on every piece, they do mix American authentic heritage with a fresh Japanese eye for detail and quality.

And now you can raise your glass for its first pop-up store in Amsterdam’s denim district to showcase its RRR concept and second evolution of blue dyed denim. The store is located in the renowned denim district, The Nine Streets which is a home to Denham, Tenue De Nimes and Scotch & Soda’s Blauw so apart from K.O.I, you still can have more place to swim in cool vintage stuffs as much as you want.

"The pop-up store is mainly to show our product directly to the consumer – for them to see the full range and also to promote the Repair and Recycle. I think its important to communicate this sustainable concept to the consumer as there is roughly 40% of clothing still being disposed through garbage. We want to show that recycling an old pair of jeans is valuable, its not garbage" - Tony Tonnaer, K.O.I. owner and founder

We had a chance to talk to some fellow who did make it to the store and told us they do expand every season and take on a new product group. May be, we should take a tour to the store sometimes. We think it’s worth it.


You would have thought that we learned our lesson the first time. Yeah, right. Seeing that we'd already tackled the most influential people in denim history, it was high time we focused on The 15 Most Influential People in Denim Right Now. And who better to turn the job over to than Francois Girbaud, founder, owner and boss of Marithé François Girbaud, the most influential innovative denim- led fashion brand on the block? To see who did make it to our list, just scroll down through.

This found a kindred spirit in denim. It’s a fit of a modern fashion jean with the character and attitude of a well-worn classic blue jean. Made for those who live the honor, tradition, and everything true wrapped up in the word ‘<i>cowboy</i>’.

<b>Vintage Washed</b>
<img src="" alt="Image Hosted by"/><br/>
Don’t let this lost art gone. Today’s average male has no clue about the fine art of the wash that their grandfathers and some of their parents used to take part in. From James Dean in the classic film Rebel Without a Cause to the Greasers in S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. This wash is classic and suit your noble manliness strut. A gentleman would walk into a store for this.

Jeans, of course, used to be the badge of the rebel; the man who broke from the traditional dress of society and rejected the old way of doing things. Everytime you want to have a rule-breaker day, grab the destroyed washed one. You know it. You’ll feel like a bad ass.

<b>One Washed</b>

A new adventure kicked off in the denim industry last month with the launch of the new cool denim shop in Italian town. It’s none other but the first flagship store for the historic ‘Roy Rogers.’

Having been resurrected from its original inception in the 50s, the brand was born when a first manufacturing company to make blue jeans in Italy called 7 Bell started collaboration with Cone Mills Corporation and gave birth to the iconic triangular label ready to storm the denim town. You think you are the real denimer? Eat your heart out!

After delivered yet another refreshing assortment for the latest season, classic jeans, jerseys, knits, and wovens were updated with folkloric casual pattern and mid-century-inspired look. The brand did gain recognition and now ready for its first flagship in Florence. So go take a look if you’re there for the Pitti show in January. Be quick on a trigger.
