A symbol of quality
Selvedge refers to self-finished edges — roll up the cuff of your jeans to have a peek. It’s a technical term that stems from old school shuttle looms. Selvedge fabrics are woven on 28-30 inch looms, which create narrower fabric that’s associated with premium quality. These looms were replaced in the 1970s and ‘80s by more effective and wider 58-60 inch looms. Today, few mills still use the smaller looms since they operate at a slower rate – but they produce more natural irregularities across the denim’s surface. These come to life when subjected to special wash and wear pattern recipes and can produce more beautiful finishing effects.
How your Bolt Skinny Fit Jeans - VC8DSS can tell a story
‘Virgin’ is DENHAM’s name for the purest form of denim — also called raw or unwashed denim. Once dyed and woven, denim is stiff and has a deep blue indigo colour with a slight shine. When it’s worn, it moulds to your body to create individual wear patterns and fade marks along the way. In this sense, every piece of virgin denim becomes completely unique. DENHAM is passionate about virgin denim and the stories it can tell along its journey to becoming vintage.
Golden Rivets (Rivetto D’Oro)
A trophy for your jeans
Golden rivets are a seal of premium quality, ensuring that the garment is made of the finest Italian fabric. They are only used on jeans that have been made by the Candiani Mill. Candiani has selected a limited number of jean makers worldwide who are entrusted to use these rivets — and DENHAM is one of them. Also called “Rivetto D’oro” in Italian.
691 stitches in every DENHAM scissor logo
For Jason Denham, scissors are a symbol of his craft. Throughout his career he’s collected thousands of pairs – each with a unique story and past. But there’s one scissor that’s the most important: his first pair, which inspired the brand’s iconic logo. Every pair of jeans in our men’s collection is stamped with this trademark, which is meticulously crafted from 691 stitches.

7 Point Pocket
A DENHAM signature detail
Jason Denham introduced our iconic 7-point pocket in his earliest designs; it’s inspired by the natural anatomy of a hand. We later evolved to include a 5-point pocket in our collections, but we didn’t want to lose this important part of our brand heritage. We now make our coin pockets as 7-point, as a subtle nod to tradition.
Copper meets black satin powder coating
In every design we make, we aim to combine our vintage inspirations with original DENHAM details. A distinct example is our premium copper hardware. Used in workwear since 1873, copper hardware has been around for almost as long as jeans have. We add a black satin powder coating, which gives a luxurious and modern twist to a nostalgic classic.
Wash & Care
Let your jeans tell your story

The Truth is in the Details
By Jason Denham
I’ve dedicated my life to making the perfect jeans. They’re my passion and my pride. Like a chef, I hand pick all my ingredients: I study tradition and technique, and obsess over every detail. I honour heritage and authenticity, while bringing a modern twist to my craft. I believe ‘The Truth is in the Details’ and every pair of DENHAM jeans tells a story – one that evolves every time they’re worn. I’m excited to share in this journey and story with you.
