Peek Inside The Office Of Donwan Harrell Of PRPS (It Looks Pretty Much Like We Thought It Would)

Donwan Harrell of PRPS was put under the lens when photographer Jake Davis came in to photograph his office. The photographer commented, “Donwan Harrel has a cooler office than me.” That about sums it up! Packed with vintage jeans, Japanese denim glossies, collectible Kewpie dolls in denim outfits and a plethora of Americana memorabilia, this is one office we wouldn’t have a hard time getting inspired in.

PRPS Japan By Donwan Harrell: Quality Denim Guys Can Count On

The PRPS Japan line is all about producing quality denim for men (we know ladies, we’re jealous too). It’s easy to call something is “quality denim,” but we have the proof for you right here. You can see how much detail goes into each pair of jeans by the actual creator and owner of the brand, Donwan Harrell. His personal involvement with the design and production is obvious  in meticulous planning, wearing, distressing, and detailing—just check the sketches below! These broken-in, working-class inspired jeans have an urban edge and a rock’n’roll quality that makes them hard not to love. After all, they take denim back to its roots, and these particular styles look like they could each be 20 years old. This line is full of staples that are sure to last as your go-to favorites for years to come, gents! Take note.
