Any denim lover has their tried and true method for washing their jeans. Just browse the subreddit /r/rawdenim and you’ll quickly realize it’s a surprisingly controversial topic. Personally, we really prefer the old tub soak. Reason being, it effectively removes and dirt and oils that can break down your denim, but is gentle enough to avoid fabric disintegration, which can easily happen in a traditional washing and drying machine type of situation.
There's only a few days left until the full glory that is South by Southwest (SXSW) descends upon our hometown of Austin, Texas. Over the past few decades the annual gathering has brought together a motley crew of stylish musicians, eccentric techies and beatnik filmmakers for nine days of showcases, movie screenings, exhibitions and networking opportunities.
It was only a matter of time before local Austin favorite Helm Boots landed in our Brand Spotlight. You've probably noticed by now that we're big fans of these guys. We love how their designs feature slightly dressier silhouettes than your typical work boot, but are still able to pair just as well with denim as they are with slacks for a more polished look.
