Denimhunters is seriously branching out. Readers from all over the world are sharing our passion for denim. Our international appeal has also reached like-minded denim loving businesses that wants to support what we’re doing. It is my pleasure to introduce our supporter of the month of July 2012, Oldboy Trading Co., a collective of vintage clothing merchants from Thailand that sell rare and amazingly gorgeous vintage denim online. Read the story and background of the company below and visit the webshop here.
With a new month comes a new supporter of Denimhunters. For June 2012 we are honoured to have the support of Han Kjøbenhavn and their new flagship in Copenhagen. We had the chance to ask the mysterious Han Kjøbenhavn a few questions, and with the help of a good friend we also shot a short video about a Denimhunter enjoying life, which is what you should do right after you’ve watched it and read the article.
Welcome to our new sponsor for March and April, Pike Brothers. With roots back to the 1930s when the brothers George and Joseph Pike had a small and exclusive tailoring shop on the Portobello Road in London. Today, their crafts and name live on with German-based Pike Brothers. Real work trousers made of beautiful selvage denim, inspired by the military and workwear wardrobe from the 30s up to the 50s. It still smells a bit of gunpowder sludge, diesel fuel and rockabilly sweat.
