News & Events
It’s been like the best Valentine’s Day ever. Little present to Jeci Chao, picked up the kids from nanny early. Came home, fixed a proper dinner and spending rest of the evening sipping champagne and chilling with the family celebrating life. Glass of Hennessy, another glass of Taittinger and we’re all good. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. It’s not about the material gifts, but the company of your loved ones. Be easy everyone. I’ll continue watching cartoons with my boy. Peace.
Don’t forget to suit up for your big date! #suitup
We would like to wish everyone a prosperous and happy Chinese New Year! Let the year of the horse bring along health and wealth to all of our friends and family.
Imagine that one of the first signs of your success is that fakes of your products start to surface. It’s a scary thought, I know. For a while now I have gotten reports of FAKE MOMOTARO JEANS surfacing in Malaysia and across SE-Asia. These fake Momotaro Jeans are of poor quality, non-selvedge and made in China. There are also number of unauthorized retailers surfacing in Malaysia. Though there are legit, official Momotaro Jeans carrying stores like Kronoz and Zolo Collection in Malaysia, there are also seemingly more and more stores selling “momotaro jeans” for fraction of the cost. Obviously these are fakes. John from Kronoz has been doing a good job reporting these incidents to Momotaro’s guys in Japan. Though it’s difficult to take action against these store, I find it concerning that there are these “mystery stores” popping up on my news feed on Facebook. Some of these stores have growing following as well. It happened to Evisu, and as mentioned happens to any brand gaining popularity. Though I won’t go into detail in sharing the name of the latest store seemingly carrying fake jeans, I will post a pic of what they are selling.
Happy New Year everyone! It’s still few more hours before the year changes in Finland but since it’s already new year at our second home we’re wishing all of our friends and family a happy new year! Thank you for everything in 2013 and let’s make 2014 an even better year! Clear skies ahead!
The NDH Crew would like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!
Yesterday I had the privilege to have lunch with the founder & owner of Kronoz Shop in KL. I meet up with John whenever possible to catch up on the progress of his business, the Malaysian denim scene and the industry as a whole.
They are finally here. The Lot 750x Matsuzaka Ai – natural indigo jeans were shipped out from Japan end of last week and arrived at our casa this afternoon. The jeans were simultaneously shipped to Belgium and Thailand and will be distributed worldwide within the next weeks. The jeans are as awesome as expected if not better. The fit, the fabric, the entire denim experience is pretty awesome. I don’t often say things like these but these might be my best jeans yet. Stay tuned as we post more pics, details and stories about the Northern Denim Co. Lot 750x.
For the Lot 3010 Northern Denim Co. jeans, we produced few pairs of ladies’ version of the jeans with same fabric and adjusted features to suit the jeans to our customers. Due to the high demand of the ladies’ Lot 3010 jeans, we decided to produce an exclusive batch of ladies’ jeans for the Lot 750x as well. The jeans are slightly slimmer than the Lot 3010 ladies’ cut, but still comfortable. The jeans are produced of the same 14.7oz raw, natural indigo denim as the men’s jeans and the silhouette is slim straight. The ladies’ jeans feature a zipper fly which aside from the adjusted cut is the main difference between the men’s and ladies’ jeans. The zipper fly was a last minute adjustment to the jeans. But this detail does not sacrifice the built quality. The Lot 750x jeans for ladies are as rugged and rigid as those produced for the male audience. The ladies’ jeans are available in sizes 26 to 30 and for more details, feel free to contact us. Stay tuned for more updates.
We finally got updates in form of pictures from Japan on the production of the coveted Northern Denim Co. Lot 750x Matsuzaka Ai Natural Indigo jeans. It’s always exciting to see pics of the jeans’ production. So imagine when it’s your own brand being produced according to your specifications, details and instructions. The amount of pictures is more than I expected and I am positively surprised with the co-operation of the guys at Rampuya for sending us the pics. Just so you know, getting production pictures and getting a chance to share them can be tough. The production processes and the guidelines regarding the production are rather well guarded so I take this as a privilege. So enjoy the first set of production pics of Lot 750x Northern Denim Co. jeans. More will follow!
No fancy costume parties this year and no horror either. But still wishing y’all Happy Halloween!
