About the fit

Tokyo Drop Carrot Fit Jeans - ZMIJVS

So one day we looked at our signature five-pocket jean, then we imaged what that would look like as a chino. The result is the Tokyo silhouette, and we’re pretty stoked about how it turned out. It has a dropped crotch with looser fit at the hip, and a carrot fit through the thigh, knee and ankle.

Virgin Denim

How your Tokyo Drop Carrot Fit Jeans - ZMIJVS 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.

Selvedge Jeans

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.

Japanese Denim

A homage to the Japanese flag

‘Japan has one of the most educated denim markets in the world,’ says Jason Denham. ‘They have, I think, some of the best materials and best denim, especially in the raw selvedge kind of fabric.’

In the 1960s, the big American weaving mills switched from narrow 29” looms to more efficient 55” weaving machines. As the Americans phased out the laborious ‘old school’ method of production, the Japanese purchased the old machines and have continued using them to today. They have since combined traditional American qualities with their own touch: the best yarns; the most rigorous standards for dyeing and weaving; premium fits; and the highest attention to artisan detail.

The Logo

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.

Durable Front Pocket

The most durable pocket bags

We love to showcase our signature scissor print, and you’ll find it on the fishbone fabric used to make front pocket bags. So in addition to being super durable, they capture a little piece of history every time you reach in your pockets. (Scissor freaks can also look out for our scissor print on interior yoke panels.)

Premium Hardware

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.

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.
