He also develops his own coloring which gives his products a great vintage and heritage look. Besides his awesome work he’s a very cool guy. Meet Mr. Duke & Sons in the nice video here below. Keep it up Jan!

Paul Kruize from Holland is an one man, one machine denim maker company. He makes jeans for everybody personal by taking the right measurements of your body so the jean will finally fits like a glove. This is a really unique process and not common when someone makes every time a new pattern. It’s really labour intensive. You can choose your favorite fit, spare parts like buttons, rivets and thread and of course your favourite fabric. I know he’s using high quality like Japanese and American fabrics. So finally you will get your dream pair of denim. Very cool!
Paul made a mini documentary with Richard Bussink. The entire making process from taking measurements, drafting a pattern, cutting the denim to making the jeans, shown in one continuous flow. So relax and check out this true craftsman. Nice one Paul, well done!
