Denim Brand: Kicking Mule Workshop


Kicking Mule Workshop, a Boulder-based denim brand, sends 100% Zimbabwean cotton to Okayama, Japan where crafty artisans rope-dye with natural indigo to create raw selvedge denim that has won the hearts of many die-hard denimphiles.

KMW offers 3 models: 1950 classic cut; 1980 slim cut; and rocker skinny unisex cut. Available in sizes 29″ through 34″ waist and available in 2 different inseams (32″ and 34″).  KMW’s slim cut are a bit looser than slims that the Swedes produce, which may be a better alternative for the modern man who wants a clean line without the tightness.  Of course, it’s all about the intricate details without all the distracting bells and whistles, which is the beauty of these jeans.

Check out the new Kicking Mule Workshop jean in person when it arrives in stores later this year.  Some retail names on the stock list include OAK, Odin, United Arrow, Revolve, Ron Herman and many more, but you can find KMW on-line right now at Detour and Context.

Daddy Does Denim

There is a lot of heavy breathing, panting and some hog wild screaming. Why? Because daddy is lying on the floor trying to zip up his pants and he can’t get up! Enough is enough and it is the perfect occasion to put daddy out of his misery. His jeans are either too tight, too big, too faded, or so dated that it actually makes mommy jeans look good. How is that even possible?

Father’s Day is only eleven days away and every man could use a good pair of denim jeans. In fact, don’t we all? Come with me on a jean journey to turn you’re sugar daddy into the king of the hill with some great fashionable jeans.

There are an array of great fitting jeans for every body type and budget. So, sit back and enjoy the ride.
