Q: So what's happening to the Denim & Boots Podcast?
A: It's not going anywhere. But, for the time being, there won't be new episodes published.
Q: So, does that mean the won't be any more episodes from the Denim & Boots Podcast?
A: We don’t know. Honestly, the reason we're taking a break comes down to busy schedules and 9 hours between us, which makes recording increasingly challenging.
Q: Will Jake continue to run the Denim & Boots Podcast on his own then?
A: No, the Denim & Boots Podcast is, and will continue to be, a collaborative project between Jake and Thomas. Since the beginning, it's been produced by Thomas.

How to Spot Vintage Denim with Wouter Munnichs (S03E02)
In this episode of The Denim & Boots Podcast, Thomas is joined by Wouter Munnichs from Long John to talk about vintage denim.
Wouter has been collecting vintage denim for +15 years, but his passion for denim goes all the way back to the early 90s when I got a job in the first Diesel store in Holland. He was 17 then.
After his time at Diesel, he started a kids brand called Lvis; helped build a successful streetwear brand; and eventually started consulting for the denim industry.
This interview was recorded at the Bluezone trade show in Munich in February 2020.
Men's File Special: Nick Clements Guides You Around Tokyo
In this special 'bonus' episode, editor-in-chief of Men's File, Nick Clements, takes us on a tour around some of his favourite spots in Tokyo.
Nick recorded his montage, which he calls 'the Tokyo Crow,' during the CC Show in October 2019, which coincided with the Typhoon named Hagibis.
You'll hear Nick explain what he sees and the people he talks to (in Japanese!) as he walks around the streets of Tokyo.
Thinking person’s approach to denim and leather.
Really enjoying this series, although I have approached all this from a different angle than most. As a tall person who has always had to source bespoke or mto as a matter of necessity, I have spent an inordinate amount of time and money just to get what many take for granted.
Informative and substantive
These guys describe IN DETAIL with weighted arguments what is what in the denim/boot world. What they say has substance, even when I don’t agree with them. The people they host on their podcast are also worth listening to. This podcast is worth your while. These guys don’t waste your time with a bunch of meaningless YouTube garbage like: “I love my boots/denim because they’re just so cool and I love them and they’re really high quality. I feel so good when I put them on because they’re great. They’re so cool. Did I mention I think they’re great? But I’m not gonna tell you why. I’m just gonna say I’m in love with my clothes for 5 minutes and waste your time.”
These guys know a ton about the industry, and they provide a valuable resource which is continuing to grow, to the benefit of us all.
Great podcast for heritage and workwear
Really enjoy listening to this podcast as I am a fan of boots and heritage menswear. They cover many different topics mostly focusing on denim and boots (duh). Great interviews from fantastic individuals who have much to offer. The host dynamic is interesting and ends up working very well. Both host have expertise in their respective fields. Can’t wait for more episodes!
