Denham the Jeanmaker doesn’t yet wholesale in the U.S., but the buzz about the brand is so strong that merchants from the San Francisco store Revolve and the Miami store Lulu flew to its Amsterdam headquarters and packed their suitcases full of its jeans to bring back to their customers.
If that behavior seems obsessive, it aligns well with that of the brand’s founder, Jason Denham. Aware that many in the audience at last week’s WWD Denim Summit had no idea who he was, he filled them in on the pertinent details: “I’m British. I’m 41 years old. I’m living in Holland, in Amsterdam. I’ve been living there for 15 years, and I’ve got a little thing about denim.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
