Cool Pete Jeans by Grivec Brothers – Jeanspaleis Kerkrade

Yesterday I visited my friends Marcel & Roger Grivec from Jeanspaleis in Kerkrade – NL. Marcel & Roger are one of the coolest and humble guys in the denim industry. I spend the whole day in their denim store and atelier. Marcel & Roger built up an extremely knowledge about denim in their rich and long denim retail history. A half year ago the twin brothers realised their ultimate dream, creating their own Grivec Bros denim collection. The first batch was sold out immediatly and the second one is going really fast too!

They made two different fits, a regual fit (Cool Pete) and a more slimmer fit (Hower). The Cool Pete is my favo fit as it refers to the classics. Both fits are loaded with a lot of details which you can see here below.

Thanks Marcel & Roger for your time and sharing your passion for denim. It’s always good to see you. I’m very honored to hear every story behind the many outstanding details from you. Very inspiring! Proud to have the Cool Pete in my denim collection and will wear them with pride! Many thanks for my pair of jeans! Keep up the good work and ‘Dry till you Die’. Talk soon!

Red Wing Shoes Presents: Heritage Women’s Collection

Red Wing Shoes has something special to celebrate! For the first time since the 20’s they are launching a Red Wing Women’s collection. Red Wing already started making women’s shoes in the 1920’s, when a wave of feminism got women wearing pants and boots. The daughter of the owner of the Red Wing Shoe Company brought them back. She started working on the new RW women’s collection two and a half years ago and they are now finally available!

The Red Wing Heritage Women’s Collection is made with the same craftsmanship and authentic care as the men’s collection. The boots are all made with cowhide, with is much softer and thinner than the steer hide used for men’s boots. Not only the leather is more comfortable, they also shapred the fit to the needs of women. The lasts are completely re-designed for a slimmer and more comfortable wear and the shoes feature a much softer insole.

From today, the Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam offers the Short Engineer, Clara, Iron Ranger and 6” Moc Toe. Get yours in store or online now. Red Wing Amsterdam is also organising a special launch party tomorrow in their RW Store at the Reestraat from 18.00 till 21.00. Congrats with this great milestone!

PF Flyers X Gitman Bros. Shoes Collaboration: Seed to Sew

My friends from the great Heddels platform just lauched their latest video project to show the collaboration between PF Flyers and Gitman Vintage Bros called ‘Seed to Sew’. From the seed that grew the fabric to the final production line stage, the entire collab shoe is 100% made in the USA from an indigo denim fabric.

In the behind the scenes video you see the GBV’s President Chris Olberding and PF’s head of Global Merchandise Manager Chris Tobias. They tell you all about what each brand brought to the table. Heddels visited both Gitman’s factory in Ashland, Pennsylvania and the New Balance factory in Boston, Massachusetts where the shoes were made.

The Gitman Bros. Vintage x PF Flyers shoes themselves will be available from PF stockists on September 1. Very nice video project guys and the blue denim shoes looks awesome too!

Denham Jeans x Art Comes First (ACF) Collaboration

Denham Jeans latest collaboration is with the two talented guys Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of Art Comes First. They did a collaboration project within the House Guest Artist series. The A.C.F.’s own collection, Avec ces Freres explored the power and symbolism of black this season so it was natural to reflect this concept in the Denham project as well, since at Denham; “If It’s Not Indigo, It’s Black”. The Denham design team asked Sam and Shaka to roll up their sleeves and develop their own unique tweaks on Denham signature styes in both 5-pocket and the tops collection. Check it out here below!
