Hunting Vintage Denim for a Living (with Brit Eaton)

Brit Eaton joins Thomas on Episode #1 of the Denimhunters Podcast

Brit Eaton aka @originalindianajeans on Instagram is a true denim hunter. The kind that risks his life on a daily basis going into abandoned mines searching for old denim and jeans. That’s his profession, and he’s been doing it for more than 20 years.

On this very first episode of the Denimhunters Podcast, I talk to Brit about why and how he does what he does.

He shares the story of how it all started when he was exporting Harley Davidsons in the mid-90s; how he almost ended up in prison in Greece; and about piles of vintage denim and lost treasures.

Brit also answers listeners questions submitted through this page by Wouter from Long John.
