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.

We found stacks of very large used white (sort of...) winter tarpaulins at one of our military surplus suppliers. The ripstop cotton duck canvas was loaded with character so we overlooked the fairly wide array of densities which range from so-stiff-it-stands-up-by-itself to heavy-but-foldable and we overlooked the surface discoloration that appeared throughout the inventory and decided to continue to embrace the willy-nilly nature of making garments from recut textiles.
Despite the stains and stiff areas, there was something about this material that screamed Graf Meets Nautilus. We don't make so many recut items and our recut customer understands that these things are part garment, part research project and part museum-item so we went ahead with our own vision of a snow mountain parka built from this burly repurposed fabric. The Nautilus D.G.L.
Like we've done with many of the jackets from Winter 2010 and 2011, we equipped the limited-edition Nautilus D.G.L. with an internal button-set allowing it to integrate with the Rogue Liner. This combination of the Rogue Liner buttoned into the Nautilus D.G.L. is pictured above.
Once the Nautilus designed was realized in white military spec material, the obvious influence of classic Belgian and German mountain parkas became even more apparent. But we promise ourselves to work to push the tradition of utility-tailoring forward, not just recreate historic design, so we set ourselves the challenge of making the parka's cowl removable. We're not the first to do a removable hood either, but we've tried to execute the idea with our own twist.
The epaulets on an under-jacket penetrate the cowl, folding over the shoulder and buttoning back through the cowl at a second contact-point, securing the hood and mantle in-place. A rhythm of snaps placed along the mantle edge matches to a complimentary set along the lower edge of the cowl, completing the attachment. Worship Tradition. Destroy Convention.
