The philosophy of SJAAN is very simple and exactly what you might expect from a menswear brand: SJAAN only comes in one fit (slim fit) and in one wash, 'Oud Blauw' (Old Blue). As there is so much to choose from in this World and as this might cause stress, we offer a simple solution: SJAAN. As we say in Dutch: "Wat moet ik aan? pak een SJAAN

The name SJAAN refers to the barmaid everyone who's ever been to Amsterdam knows and loves. She gets along with everyone as she's flexible but she's also strong and reliable. Coming soon: Miss SJAAN contest at our flagship store on Dam square (Dam 8, next to Naked Espresso) where we will be looking for a new modelling talent for a photo shoot. The winner will earn a role in a new video commercial. (Photo credits: Maxine Grasman by Doornbos fotografie.)

WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES

November 14, 2019 3:04:07 PM CET

Click photo or HERE to see who our friends are, who made your clothes and which causes we support.

The future of fashion is sustainable. We do our best to produce in a sustainable way by keeping it close at home (our jeans are produced in Italy and Turkey) working with certified factories, using as little water and chemicals as possible and working more and more with laser finishes. Most people don't know that over 60% of waste comes not from production but from usage. Therefore, we advise to "Buy Less, Buy Better" and to "Wear more often, Wash less often". It is similar to the food industry, where you have less impact when eating meat from a quality butcher once every one or two weeks instead of going for cheap fast food or meat from the supermarket on a daily basis. 

For a sustainable future transparency is key. We need everyone to be involved so we need to show what we're doing so people can get more involved and keep an eye on things. Click HERE to see whom we work with, "Who Made Your Clothes" and which causes we support. We are sharing this not to show you how good we are but so you can help us to become better. This is an invitation to take a closer look and to give us advice and to ask us questions.

Many thanks in advance for your attention!

Selvedge Denim - a short background story

November 2, 2019 11:35:02 PM CET

A short story about the history of jeans and selvedge denim.

Jeans were originally designed as work wear. The railroad workers, ranchers, miners and all the other tough jobs had a demand for sturdy clothing that lasted for a long time and was easy to repair.

Now-a-days denim jeans are a wardrobe essential and aren’t being considered work wear apparel anymore. The demand for denim has risen substantially in the past decades and a lot of companies have put more and more focus on the development of their denim collections.

Denim Rose - picture by Amsterdenim.

When buying a pair of denims, you might have encountered selvedge denim. You might even recognize it instantly by the selvedge line that you can find on the inside, and sometimes outside, of jeans. But what does it mean? To understand where this selvedge denim comes from we have to go back to the very beginning of jeans production. The first jeans ever was made in 1873 by a man called Jacob W. Davis, a tailor who had a small shop in Reno, Nevada. He designed a pants that was made from denim fabric he bought from Levi Strauss & Co and added the rivets to strengthen the pants weakest spots, making it a pants that had a more durable fabric than its competitors.

Denim fabric back then was made on shuttle loom machines. A shuttle loom machine produced denim on a roll about 32’’ in width. The edge of this fabric got its iconic look due to the way the denim threads are not cut at the end of the fabric, but rather spun back in to the cloth. This gives the denim fabric its clean finished edge. As the demand for denim grew and the factories were producing more and more denim. The factories needed a fast and easy way to see which denim was who’s in the factories warehouses. That’s when they started adding a SELVEDGE-ID. Cone Mills, for example, had a RED-ID and the Amoskeag Mill had a GREEN-ID. Nowadays the selvedge ID’s are purely for decoration purposes.

Different Selvedge ID’s - Picture by Taylor Taylor.

Back to the growing demand of denim! After the second world war a lot of denim mills sold their shuttle loom machines to Japan. This because a new type a of machine was introduced, the projectile loom, which is still used to make most of the denim found in stores today. The denim from the new projectile loom machines quickly became the most popular fabric for jeans. The yarn used in the shuttle looms was the same as before, but the shuttle loom and projectile loom still had a lot of differences. The projectile shuttle loom produced denim not on a 32’’ inch roll, but they were able to make rolls up to twice as wide. Not only was the roll wider than with a traditional shuttle loom, they could also produce denim rolls more than twice as fast. A traditional shuttle loom produces about 100 meters of fabric a day and the new projectile loom produced around 300 meters a day. The projectile loom doesn’t have the selvedge as seen on the shuttle loom, because the threads are cut at the end. Due to the faster and more effective way of producing the fabric, it greatly reduced the cost of making denim.

As most brands now mostly feature denim made on projectile looms, there has been a big change in demand for selvedge denim in the past years. Most selvedge denims found today are still made on old shuttle loom machines. The selvedge denim is now seen as a more luxury type of denim. This because the production time of the selvedge denim is way slower and more labour intensive.

Van een stad een kledingmerk maken. Dat doet Amsterdenim dat, zoals de naam al doet vermoeden,
Amsterdam als inspiratiebron en leidraad gebruikt voor zijn ruige en rauwe spijkerbroeken. Op het
hoofdkantoor op de Spijkerkade – hoe kan het ook anders – spreekt RetailTrends met algemeen directeur
Ewout Rameijer over de eerste brandstore van het merk, de verbindende rol van jeans en hoe je Amsterdam
kunt gebruiken om een wereldmerk te worden.
 
Amsterdenim is vijf jaar geleden opgericht door Benjamin Fokkema. Fokkema werkte onder meer bij Lee,
Mustang en Scotch & Soda. “Wij zijn wel een beetje een offspring van Scotch & Soda, maar dan met een iets
ruiger randje”, vertelt Rameijer, zelf sinds 2016 directeur van het merk, in de oude loods waar het kantoor
gevestigd is. We treffen de directeur vlak voor de sample sale, waardoor langs de wanden kledingrekken vol
spijkerbroeken staan opgesteld en ook de tafel bezaaid ligt met jeans. De inrichting van de loods past zo extra
goed bij het ruige karakter van het merk, omdat in de loods Delftsblauw, staal, beton en hout met elkaar
gecombineerd worden. “Dit is wel heel overdreven rauw. Wat wij mooi vinden is juist het contrast. Dus net als
een oude motor mag het leer van het zadel wel verweerd zijn, maar dan is het chroom wel helemaal zonder
roestplekken.” Lees het volledige artikel HIER

Amsterdenim opens flagship store on Dam Square

August 30, 2019 12:55:12 PM CEST

AMSTERDAM, August 27th 2019 – “The best non-tourist attraction in Amsterdam”, is how they introduce their latest jewel in their denim crown. Amsterdenim has opened a stylish boutique shop in the heart of “denim city” Amsterdam. It offers an exceptional shopping experience for men, with abundant indigo blue, wooden details and gold-colored eye catchers. The store is situated on Dam Square 8, next to the Royal Palace. The unique collaboration with downstairs-neighbors Naked Espresso, voted best espressobar in town, has led to the most complete Amsterdenim brand experience. It has become the home of several authentic Amsterdam brands for premium goods, like Pig & Hen bracelets, Adam Underwear, Mates Gold Rum and The Stillery. Amsterdenim, a jeans brand established in 2014, offers a collection consisting of denim, T-shirts, jackets and sweaters. The Amsterdam personality of the brand can be found in many details, for example the signature stitching on the back pockets. It is stitched in the shape of the "Golden Bend", the most prestigious part of the Herengracht in Amsterdam. The rivets and button fly feature the crosses from the city’s Coat of Arms. The “best non-tourist attraction in Amsterdam” refers to the multiple award winning “Amsterdam Jeans” campaign, a collaboration with De Speld. As written on the steps of the stairs leading up to the store: ‘Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, in truth it is a city of freedom.’ Exactly what the brand stands for and probably why famous Amsterdammers such as André Hazes Jr., Johnny de Mol and Douwe Bob like wearing it. Open daily: 10AM – 6 PM amsterdenim.com Dam 8, Amsterdam
