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.

Styles from the new Winter 2012 collection are starting to come in and they include designs that mark our 10th exploration of limited-edition D.G.L. Re-Cut concepts. One of those is the Orkney DGL. Made from vintage French linen slipcovers combined with deadstock Italian Navy blankets from the 1960's rendered in a completely new men's outerwear model; the Orkney.
We discovered the archive fabrics at the stall of our friends at the War & Peace show. The dealer in question charmed us with her personality first, and then did us the favor or allowing us to preview her secret stash of history-rich vintage materials. We settled on rugged natural linens from France and thick blanketing from the Italian Navy.
Because we're daily inspired by the processes of denimcraft and because we hoped to harmonize these fabrics within one garment concept, we settled on a hand dip dyed technique as the main color inspiration. Linen parts were laid down individually in indigo baths and then pulled out, wrung by hand and dried flat to create a one-of-a-kind optic loaded with rich highs and low textures.
The Orkney's design takes cues from several iconic utility winter coats from our archives, but a practical debt is owed to a Swedish Army Winter Coat. We managed to locate two examples; one at the Rose Bowl in in California and the other from a Dutch/Greek dealer also showing at War & Peace. This doubling-up of archives gave us the courage to cut into one of the vintage pieces in order to understand its design well enough to try and evolve it… -subjecting to our own creative ethos and own commitment to stylistic progression.
