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, this time, we’re casting our net into the blue denim seas to hear yours.
Welcome to You and Your Denim.
Who are you and what are you into?
My name’s Dan, and I‘m from Denmark, but I’ve also spent time living in Australia and Canada. I work in international business with a focus on sales, and have been doing that in Hong Kong for around three years. I’m into a lot of different things but street photography, traveling, and football are among my top three.
What about denim does it for you?
I travel a lot for work, which means I’m usually dressed in business casual but that’s all a façade. The truth is, I’m much more into jeans and t-shirts. I think what does it for me is the ultimate comfort denim has to offer, and its constant reputation for being the casual uniform of a relaxed, laidback guy.
like cool stuff, LOLs and sunsets? you’ll love our emails.
What do you look for in a good fitting pair of jeans?
I want my jeans to move with me throughout my day. I need denim that’s true to its heritage but also has some give.
What’s the story behind your favourite piece of denim?
One of my favourite pieces of Denim is a Levi’s vest I got out of a vintage shop in San Francisco. I bought it about seven years ago near the end of year long trip of traveling. I didn’t have a lot of money left but I spent the cash on it anyway because I loved its cut and wash.
What’s your go-to wash?
For everyday wear, a simple mid wash easily matches the majority of my wardrobe, but I think light washed denim has the best casual attitude.

durability and looking better with age.
