The Culture of Culture: Denim Through and Through

Once again I've been lucky enough to have a short feature in the third instalment of the HUMAN Magazine. If you've been following along with my previous Instagram content, I've shared links to Issue 1: The Power of Advocacy & Issue 2: What purpose is purpose (sustainability)

Issue 3 is all about The Culture of Culture. It sounds a little bit strange when you put it like that, but you may ask yourself, what is the culture of culture and what does it mean.

True Concrete Matter

From day one you could always find us on markets, for curiosa. At some point we saw a few really nice army jackets and thought this would also fit in really well with the shop.

I'm no pro, but I've felt enough denim products over the past 5 months to know when I have my hands on something that I really like.

The Perfect Shirt

The Perfect Shirt | Most folks think flannel is just another word for a chequered shirt, or in other words a lumberjack looking bit cloth. Flannel is a versatile fabric with a history that stretches back hundreds of years. Before the likes of Beckham, McQueen, and Cobain, flannel shirts were built for a purpose. Workers who found themselves facing the elements on a regular basis looked to the flannel shirt as a go-to layer.
