‘Warenmagazijn’ is a great authentic webshop where they stock allround lifestyle products with a true story. From good denim till bikes, magazines, books, coats, knives, bags, etc. It’s a really nice blend of products, very unique concept. They also stock some of my personal favorite brands like Pike Brothers, Rising Sun, Otter Wax, The Heritage Post magazine, Otter knives, Fleurs de Bagne to name a few. Check their shop for yourself, below some highlights.

Last Friday I went to BOB (Butcher Of Blue) store in Hoogland (NL) to visit the denim event which Bob started together with Denham Jeans. They made 100 pairs of this collab denim which they sold in the shop. Included with each jean there was a diary to note every spot, adventure and experience from the wearer with the denim. After one year of rockin the jean very hard they came back to their origin, the BOB store. Last Friday you had the opportunity to see these great worn-out projects by yourself and see the great limited book about this project, they made only 100 hand numbered copies. Another good thing about these denim events is that you see so much passionated people with blue veins. Big respect to Bob and his team for developing this great project. Good retail example for customers and media attention! Below some impressions of the event. Thanks Bob for the invite!

100 pieces of Butcher Of Blue (BOB) jeans were made together with Denham Jeans one year ago. All the buyers of the jean received a kind of notebook to put in their experiences and adventures which they made with the jean. So every spot, damage, and dirt were writen in de diary. Now after one year of hard wearing and rocking the jean all these one of a kinds come back to show up for an expo. Another good thing is that all these treasures are published in a great limited book. Only 100 copies, so be quick!
