Our good friends at Cool Hunting visited the Oakland, CA workshop of Roy Denim to get an inside view into his working day and the machines that allow him to create his exceptional denim garments. The video premiered last week at the 99% Conference. Well worth a viewing.
“Roy Denim is actually just one man, Roy Slaper, whose obsession with making jeans has driven his small business into the conciseness of denim heads everywhere. In our video we learn about Roy’s machine driven approach in creating his jeans, the birth of his business and how his obsessive attention to detail results in some of the toughest, nicest looking denim around.”
While official information on the collaborative capsule collection between Nike SB and Levi’s remains somewhat elusive, another teaser picture has surfaced of the patch from the jeans, courtesy of UK skate store Welcome. It’s not much different from the first image that was leaked by Omar Salazar but it gives a possible indication of the colourscheme being used for the range.
