Hello everyone, first of all I would like to say thanks for featuring me @robindenim, my name is Randy, an IT consultant, and opening a restaurant here in Jakarta. Besides my interest for denim, I am very much in love with anime movies, traveling, especially camping and hiking, and football, AC Milan is my favourite club. I like spending time with friends, drink beers or coffee, they’re just a perfect combination while hanging out. And I’m a denim freak and boots freak. hahaha…
Why do you share your outfits? And why Instagram?
Well, I love Instagram, helps me a lot with finding a perfect style for me, and receiving likes from people who have the same interest with me is always making me proud. My girlfriend always helps me a lot with my feed, For me, Instagram has been the best community, the people are so friendly and humble, always give a positive comment and support me a lot. Thanks Instagram.
What makes your Instagram feed so special?
Well, lately I’ve been trying to do creative photography for my outfits, post something different that nobody else has been doing, and hopefully it will turn out well. Just stay tuned…
Where does your inspiration come from?
There’s a bunch of people who inspired me, but someone on Instagram once said to me that we inspire each other…but for me, to be myself is my best version of myself…
Where does your love for denim come from? When did it start?
My mom taught me to wear denim and I started to wear denim from high school onwards, when I was 14 years old, it just felt comfortable when using denim. I started enjoying more and more those denim outfits, they are cooler, more rugged and fade awesomely.
Your top 3 favourite (denim)brands? And why?
I couldn’t say a lot about this one, but currently my favourite denim brands are Japan Blue Jeans, Lee Cooper and Nudie. It might change later because I would like to gain more experience with other denim brands.
6. What is your favourite accessory?
My leather bracelets, I can’t go out without them, and thanks to @pigeontreecrafting, @showyourhem and @revoltindustry for producing such awesome leather bracelets.And my leather working bag, specially customised by @eurekaleather.
7. What items do you wear the most at the moment?
Currently I always wear ODJB001 18 oz “SAPPHIRE SLUB”, well even though it is categorized as a heavyweight denim this denim is just fantastic. I love the indigo colour on the warp and weft. It only took a couple days to break in and now it is really comfortable. And my redwings, that I wear every day, and perfectly matched with denim. Iron ranger 8111 and Moctoe 1907 are my current rotation, and they are very awesome, and I will add to my collection soon.
What is your favourite shop? And what is your favourite webstore?
I’ve been trying limbrodenim, denimhouse and okayamadenim. And they’re just fantastic.
Do you care about the production process?
Yes of course, it will impact the final result. I want to know exactly how they were made. The denim’s quality is very dependent on the process. Every denim brand must give their best on the process so the quality will be awesome.
What are your dreams for the future?
Wow… I’m still young and ambitious, and have a lot dreams. Haha… I will cover a few of my dreams. I’m planning to get married soon, having a simple and happy family. I’m also planning on opening a branch for my restaurant in Bali (you guys must know Bali, and you must try at least once to go there). I hope I will become a successful person and an inspiring one.
Last but not least, I want to meet other fellow denim heads from around the world and share with them, so see you soon guys!
