My denim project for this moment is the Eat Dust Fit 73 jeans. Eat Dust is a fanatastic denim brand from Antwerp – Belgium and I am wearing this pair for 2.4 years now, every day, day in day out. The jean already got some really nice fadings and some spots are broken in and already repaired. Today my right knee just came through the denim fabric. Ít’s shows that the blue warp is broken but the white weft is still in perfect state. The beauty of denim.
Ben Fokkema, founder of denim brand Amsterdenim, did an interview for the Dutch television. In the interview Ben talks about his brand, drive, energy and passion to reach his goals with Amsterdenim. Always nice and inspiring to see this authentic man speaking. Check it out! (sorry Dutch language only)
James Dean is a true denim icon. He got world famous in 1955 with his legendary role in the movie ‘Rebel without a cause’. James showed us how cool it is to wear a pair of jeans, mostly Lee Jeans, a plain white t-shirt, a leather jacket and some boots. Simple and timeless. Still today this is a classic outfit for everyday use. Rebel style.
Interesting way of promoting brands and style. Well done Cavemen!

Facing West is an initiative by Lizzie Kroeze which is started in October 2013 in Amsterdam. As Lizzie is inspired by workwear and traditional techniques how they were made and maintain she came up with the idea to start her own company. With Facing West she makes the most amazing one of a kind indigo items. Most of the time she use the famous Japanese sashiko stiching technique to create, repair or to decorate items. As the sashiko method is always done by hand it’s very time-consuming, but the result is really beautiful! She got her inspiration from garments worn in various cultures, from American miners gear to Japanese farmers’ and fishermen’s wear. Below an impressions of her authentic work.
