Visiting Amsterdam and reporting on the shopping opportunities you have in the city of course I had to stop by the Red Wing Shoes store. And what an experience. Even though I’ve seen most of the shoes and boots before and also own a few of them myself I was truly amazed of how inspiring the shop felt. This is a prime example of how to utilise and put into life the experience-shopping-culture. You simply have to put it on the top of your go-to-list.
Despite numerous assertions that it wouldn’t be possible to find any vintage denim in Amsterdam I sniffed up this pair of Redline Levi’s 501 jeans in one of the Zipper vintage stores. They were made around 1983 and I got them for the reasonable price of €25 (less than $35 or around DKK 185).
Now, the “Explore the Wonders and Mysteries of Denim“-event that we are co-hosting in Illum (Copenhagen) this weekend isn’t all over yet, but as I won’t be there today (Saturday) to hand out the questions for our G-Star RAW competition I’ve decided to put up the questions on the site for everybody to answer. Also, I know there are a lot of people who wouldn’t make it to the event either because they were busy, out of down or simply because they don’t live in Copenhagen or even Denmark and of course you shouldn’t be deprived this opportunity.

Yesterday we closed the Pike Brother competition and found one lucky winner. His name is Remi Gammaitoni and he’s from Audun-le-Tiche in the northern part of France close to Luxembourg. Congratulations!
