    3 Ways to Soak Your Raw Denim and Which You Should Choose

    3 Ways to Soak Your Raw Denim and Which You Should Choose

    In this episode of the Denimhunters Podcast, Thomas talks about a tough decision you need to make before you start wearing your new raw denim jeans; whether to soak them or not.

    You'll learn the three approaches you can take, and when you want to use each of them. And, of course, Thomas also talks about the scenario where you don’t soak the jeans.

    IMPORTANT: If you're signed up for the Indigo Invitational, remember that you must NOT soak or wash your jeans before you've submitted your 'raw proof' photos on October 1, 2020. Visit indigoinvitational.com to register and stay up-to-date!

    Influencing the Entire Value Chain of Blue Jeans (with Rudy Budhdeo)

    Influencing the Entire Value Chain of Blue Jeans (with Rudy Budhdeo)

    If you know Rudy Budhdeo, you probably know him for his store. That’s where I met him the first time, more than a decade ago when I visited London for the first time—before I’d even started Denimhunters.

    But the London-based denimhead not only retails jeans and other essentials for us blue bloods; he also distributes and even helps manufacture it. In fact, Rudy works with the entire value chain of blue jeans. That’s the topic of our talk.

    3 Reasons You Should Join the Indigo Invitational for Year 2 (with Bryan Szabo)

    3 Reasons You Should Join the Indigo Invitational for Year 2 (with Bryan Szabo)

    Imagine if you could win prizes worth thousands of dollars just for doing something you surely truly love. I’m talking about fading jeans, of course. Well, in case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, you can!

    All you need is a pair of fresh raw jeans ready to go and register for the year 2 of Indigo Invitational by October 1 (2020).

    Co-founder of the year-long fade competition, Bryan Szabo, is the first guest to get a second appearance here on the Denimhunters Podcast.

    When Bryan was first on the show in episode 2, we talked about his story, how we got into the denim scene, a bit about ballroom dancing, and, most importantly, how he got the idea to start a fade competition and how it all came about.

    That episode came out just a week after year 1 of the competition had ended. Now we’re only two weeks away for the starting line of year 2, so in this episode, Bryan lays out the rules and presents his most compelling argument for why you should register.

    Register for the competition here: http://indigoinvitational.com/

    How a Virtual Get-Together Reunites Denim Lovers Globally (with Ben Woodhouse)

    How a Virtual Get-Together Reunites Denim Lovers Globally (with Ben Woodhouse)

    On March 11, the Danish prime minister went on national TV to make an announcement that would change the daily lives of every person in Denmark. In the weeks before and after, similar announcements were made by leaders across the globe. We were in lockdown.

    A couple of months later, Alex aka @yorkshire_denimal on Instagram had organised a ‘hang’ in Sheffield to bring together like-minded denim lovers. He’d attended the hangs at Ben Woodhouse’s Clobber Calm store and was picking up the baton as Ben was focusing on other projects.

    When COVID-19 made Alex’ plans impossible, he got the idea to a global denim day to bring the community together. This gave Ben the idea to arrange a 24-hour virtual hang. Amanda Barnes had already joined the team when Ben asked for help in a post on Instagram. That’s when I got involved. The first Global Denim Hang took place on May 31, 2020.

    Fast forward three months to this week and the second Global Denim Hang is about to happen. Continuing to support this unifying and fun initiative the best I can, I invited Ben on the podcast to give an update on how the second hang will be an improvement over the first and generally just what to expect.

    The second hang is scheduled for September 12, starting at noon UK time, with 24 consecutive 1-hour sessions. And the line-up is pretty spectacular! Check out the full programme on the GDH Instagram.

    Taking part of this hang will be (a lot) easier compared to the first one. You can still join via Zoom and interact, but you can also watch it on the official YouTube channel or on the Global Denim Hang website. No need to log in our anything.

    And don’t forget the auctions for charity that the team is organising alongside it. All money goes straight to Save the Children's global division.

    The Challenging Future of Denim Trade Shows (with Tilmann Wröbel)

    The Challenging Future of Denim Trade Shows (with Tilmann Wröbel)

    This week, Tilmann Wröbel from Monsieur-T. design studio joins Thomas on the podcast to share his story and his opinions on how COVID-19 is affecting the denim industry, particularly the trade show business.

    As Tilmann and Thomas discuss, one of the key reasons people go to trade shows is to meet other people. To create relationships and get new ideas through interactions with others.

    Trade shows bring people together. Ideally a lot of people! And that's a big 'no go' for health authorities these days. So most showrunners have gone virtual. But not Munich Fabric Start, Bluezone's parent show that was established in the mid-90s. Renamed 'Fabric Days' for this autumn edition, the show is happening.

Excellent show about all things raw denim

The Raw “unwashed” podcast we all needed

This has taught me so much and I’m hooked.

wzrdreams ,

Women listen too

Just because we aren’t the majority of listeners doesn’t mean we aren’t listening. Unfortunately listening to this podcasts reinforces the idea that raw denim is a boys club.
