Style[edit]

A strong, clean and minimalistic appeal that mixes fashion with denim to create a futuristic denim look for the modern man. Its material focus is on Japanese and Italian denim, organic cotton, and other durable fabrics combined with Dutch and Portuguese manufacture quality. The T-shirts and sweats are all hand screen-printed to provide a custom made touch.
