Our Toronto location recently launched the Kintsugi Program which elevates worn denim to objet d’art status. Our Store Manager Tyler Nelson explains to us how we extend the life of previously worn premium denim, why we’ve named this custom-made line after the Japanese art of repairing with gold and how you can be a part of this unique and sustainable endeavour.
If you can’t take the heat, stay out of that heavy denim – we look at our favourite lightweight jeans and denim alternatives for the summer.
We took a look at how the denim industry is gradually returning to natural dyeing techniques and paying homage to communities traditionally steeped in indigo production.
We caught up with internationally acclaimed bartender Shaun Layton in the latest edition of the Weathered Project – see the evolution of Shaun’s Imogene + Willie Barton Slims and find out how Juniper is part of a wave of restaurants transforming Vancouver’s Chinatown.
The good people at Imogene + Willie put together the gorgeous short film, “summertime ride” that shows the versatile and durable qualities of their denim and the timelessness of their designs.
The denim experts at Nudie broke down the traits of each denim weight class for us – find out which ounce quality suits your lifestyle and patience threshold.
Sometimes in January it’s like we have to remind the weather that it already had it’s chance at winter, it should be over by now. But always, the temperatures drop and the rain becomes relentless, but if we’re after one glimpse of joy it’s that this is the best time of the season to start breaking in a new pair of raw denim.
