Residence: Tidaholm, Sweden
Occupation: Warehouse worker
I’m a proud dad of two kids that I have with my beautiful significant other who often helps me take the pictures. Me and my family live in a small town called Tidaholm, Sweden. My other interests that don’t involve denim include having a good, quality time with family and friends, relaxing at home listening to albums or going to concerts of my favorite bands. I’m also a huge football fan. I will live and die as a Red Devil(Man United) supporter. Pretty much any activity that allows me enjoying it with a beer in hand, is a good activity.
Why do you share your outfits? And why Instagram?
I’ve always had a pretty big interest in clothes/ style, and my “obsession” with Raw denim started around two years ago. Later I started to follow folks on instagram, with a similar style as mine, who uploaded creative photos of their own raw denim-clothes, and a few months later I thought to myself “Well if they can do it, so can I”. So I gave it a shot. And in this way I had hoped to inspire others, the same way others have inspired me.
What makes your Instagram feed so special?
What makes all instagram feeds special is that we all share our personal taste. All are unique in their own ways. But other than that, there’s nothing special about my account.
Where does your inspiration come from?
I try to find my own ideas, and also get a lot of help from my girlfriend. And sometimes I get inspired by other accounts and try something similar, but with my own personal twist to it.
Where does your love for denim come from? When did it start?
I’ve had an interest in denim for as long as I can remember. But it took a turn to a more serious interest when I visited a Nudie shop in Gothenburg, somewhere around 2005.
Your top 3 favorite (denim)brands?
Nudie Jeans – Straight up quality, and they’ve been with me for a whole lot of years.
Rogue Territory – A fairly new brand for me, but since I’ve bought my first pair, I’ve loved it.
Red Wing Heritage – No wardrobe without a pair of Redwings!
The list could be made long, with SoSo Clothing, 3sixteen, Lee Jeans, amongst others.
What is your favorite accessory?
I don’t wear a lot of accessories, but I have my Nudie wallet which I carry with me every day that I love and hope will age well. And of course my Timex Red Wing watch.
What items do you wear the most at the moment?
My 3sixteen shadow selvedge ranch jacket, Rgt 16.75 Slub, and a pair of Red Wings. I like the fit and they make me feel comfortable when wearing them. And the 3sixteen jacket is my absolute favorite at the moment.
What is your favorite shop? And what is your favorite webstore?
Nudie Jeans Repair Shops – Always a pleasant staff and good service.
Sivletto – A nice and different shop in Stockholm with good supplies, which I can recommend. They also have a webshop.
Red Wing Stockholm – A pretty new Red Wing Store in Sweden’s capital city. And same here – great store and nice staff.

Do you care about the production process?
Yes, definitely! For me it’s extremely important to know where the clothes I wear come from. A big plus if they’re ecological / fair trade.
What are your dreams for the future?
I only wish for me and my family to keep on living a healthy and happy life 🙂
