I am a proud dad of two beautiful kids with a strong love for fashion. In fact, Fashion is my hobby and I like denim, boots, watches and many more fashion related items. Every day, I try to wear as many items from my collection as I can, haha.
My favorite food is sushi and chicken for it is healthy as well as delicious. I am not one of those people who likes to eat junkfood. I try to avoid fatty food such as skin or viscera.
My passion in life besides raw denim is go to the gym and a healthy lifestyle, I will never quit for that.
Why do you share your outfits? And why Instagram?
I love Instagram because most fashion pages and the most popular fashion people use it. I enjoy to check other accounts, to know what is going on in fashion.
I use Instagram to show my style to other people and to get their opinions about my style. The opinion of others leads to satisfaction and since satisfaction can’t be purchased, Instagram is the best way to get it!
What makes your Instagram feed so special?
I just share what I like and I try to catch the best photo. I have a very wide collection of many different brands, so I have enough different items to use for my photos.
Where does your inspiration come from?
From so many different areas like for example; @magixfor and David Beckham. I love to keep it stylish and simple. I follow so many individuals, brands and designers, but I can’t point at any other specific source of inspiration. For me the most important thing is to; be myself and be the best version of me.
Where does your love for denim come from? When did it start?
When I was in high school my love for raw denim started. My first love at that time was Levis, because it was the only brand I knew. I was around 15 – 17 years old and now I am 40, so it’s a long time ago, haha.
Your top 3 favorite (denim)brands?
The Flat Head – Their cuts are perfect for me. I also love the fabric they use and their sewing and construction is probably the best I have ever seen in a pair of denim.
Iron Heart – Their fabric is so smooth for heavy weight denim.
Oni denim – The slubby texture of the fabric of Oni denim is so special for me.
What is your favorite accessory?
I like watches, boots and sneakers. I like boots because they will always match with my pair of jeans and sneakers because they are so comfortable. My favorite shoe brands are; Redwings, Alden and Converse.
What items do you wear the most at the moment?
Since I have a lot of jeans in my collection, I try to rotate as much as I can. At the moment, I rotate the Iron Heart 555-01 with The Flat Head 8002. The big problem is that I have too much raw denim, maybe around 200 pair of jeans. That’s why I always fail to fade a pair of my own jeans, haha.
What is your favorite shop? And what is your favorite webstore?
I often buy at @limbrodenim, @blueingreensoho, @prontodenim, @denimhouseid and many more places..
The owner of Limbro Denim Store is my best friend and he often orders directly from The Flat Head and Red Wing Shoes etc. because he has a good relationship with those brands.
Do you care about the production process?
I don’t know that much about the production process. But I really care about the quality of the product I buy. And I think that we all want to wear nice and high quality clothes.
What are your dreams for the future?
I want to be an investor in many different areas of business and I will keep collecting as many fashion items as I can, haha.
