Denim was born in France and popularised in America, but Japan is where today’s best quality denim is painstakingly crafted; so naturally, that’s where we get ours. You’ve heard our denim story before, so this time we’re casting our net into the wide blue denim seas to hear yours.
Welcome to You and Your Denim.
Who are you and what are you into?
I’m Deep, originally from San Francisco and have been in Hong Kong for 9 months. I’m the Product Lead for PayMe, an app for splitting the bill or paying a friend back – think Venmo for HK. When I’m not building cool products, I’m either hunting down live music venues in HK or planning my next adventure around Asia.
What about denim does it for you?
I’m a startup guy in a corporate world so denim is my go-to. I can dress it up with a crisp button down or stay casual in a tee and backwards hat. I love the flexibility of denim and I’m always switching between washes depending on the occasion.
What do you look for in a good fitting pair of jeans?
Slim yet stretchy with pajama-like softness. I need my jeans to fit well and move with me but above all else, they need to be comfy.
What’s the story behind your favourite piece of denim?
If I didn’t have to wear pants I wouldn’t…and no, not that way – I’d be wearing shorts! My favourite piece of denim are my jorts, which I’ve had for years. To me, they represent fun and have been on me from road trips down the coast of California to music festivals in Hong Kong.
What’s your go-to wash?
I love the classic stone wash. It goes with just about everything for almost any occasion.
