About It's simple. The Truth is in the Details. Worship Tradition, Destroy Convention.
Press Founded way way back in 2009, DENHAM will be a toddler for some time to come. As such we are deeply grateful to the media and event organizers below who have been helping us get the word out.
Garment Library Before we created we collected. But we collect not just to ACQUIRE. We collect to EXAMINE, ANALYSE, DISCOVER and to LEARN. The Denham Garment Library is the physical manifestation of our obsession with tradition and quality, providing deep and unique sources of inspiration for our design process.
Product Reviews Denham design, denim integrity. We look to the tradition from which denim emerged as a blueprint for developing the collection. Focused on quality and utility. We seek to add to the great tradition of iconic garment-types by challenging conventions the way they did when they first built pants out of tent-fabric, or slammed machine-rivets into clothing.
Service Co. When pure denim fabric soaks in timeless indigo dyestuff, the result takes on a life of its own. Part of the pleasure of blue jeans is the journey they take with you all the way from a fresh virgin pair to a perfectly worn-in and 100% unique wardrobe favorite. To get from here to there takes care and maintenance. That process should also be a pleasure.

SEMI-SUITING & ACCIDENTAL-SETS
When two-of-a-kind beats a royal-flush
When we open the boxes around here during delivery-periods, despite trying to stay cool and remain calm, we can't help pulling out the new styles and experimenting with Denham-plus-Denham combinations. We'd be reluctant to try and impose 100% Denham outfits on folks (we've no ambitions to create an army out there), but we do get pretty excited by the semi-suits and accidental-sets that can be pulled together within each collection
We're reminded of the vintage specimens that helped inspire some of our new casual tailored styles like the 90-year old French 2-Piece Traveling Suit we picked up at a Paris market (visit our online DENHAM GARMENT LIBRARY to see it).
This time around we played around with:
1- Sweat "Suits" combining the new Tailor/Tailor LX with the new Jock pant
2- Tonal combinations of a sportcoat and trousers based on the new Medic and Apache
3- Fabric-matched 3-piece workwear based on the Tailor, Waist and Mohawk
4- Workers' Party Suit matching the Mao and Motion in green
...and Technical Separates matching the 3-Layer Standard Chairman sportcoat with the new chambray Dropcrotch trouser (below)
It starts with design but it only really comes to life when the shipments arrive. Yesterday evening after the shop closed we pressured Diego (pictured) to grab some stuff so we could see what it looked like together. Some combinations we had been anticipating like the “3-Piece Suit” (shown below), a workwear twist on the traditional version we’ve been playing with for a few seasons. Other mixes are more spontaneous and only become apparent with the final garments are in our hands.
We honestly weren’t thinking you’d put our new Jock sweat pant with the Tailor LX or Tailor bonded-sweat sportcoats, but once we assembled this very grown-up alternative to a sweat suit we started to think maybe those people who insist on wearing sweatpants on airplanes might be onto something. -Add the new Advisor Parka in black cotton-nylon and traveling coach could become pretty civilized.
One of the reasons that these sorts of potential hook-ups can come as a mild surprise is that we spend most of our time on the individual garment level. And this group of styles features the same evidence-of-research and appetite-for-invention as everything else we make. From the new Fitswell lining system designed originally on Savile Row for hunting jackets to time-tested butcher’s buttons with ring & eye construction to newly appropriated concepts from the turn-of-the-century like the Neustadter system for reinforcing pockets based on an antique workwear patent. As usual, the deeper you dig the more we hope you’ll find. The Truth is in the Details.
