Unless you’re entirely new to the world of raw denim, you’ll have heard about Ruedi Karrer. If you don’t know his story, you should watch the interview I did with him at Selvedge Run.

In that video, Ruedi talks about his more than 14,000 jeans and denim jackets, his Jeans Museum in Zurich, and how he got into denim in the first place.

I’ve known Ruedi for some 7-8 years, I guess. Over the years, I’ve learned that there’s more to the man than denim evolution. That’s what Wouter Munnichs and I wanted to show you when we sat down with Ruedi at the Bluezone show in September last year.

If you’d like to meet Ruedi, he’ll be at the upcoming Bluezone show on January 29-30. Register here!
