TOP 5 DENIM BRANDS

We have had a great response from our Facebook community from our ‘Finish the Sentence’ posts, so much so that today, we are launching a regular ‘Top 5’ post which will incorporate some of the suggestions you guys have made. We’ll be posting a new one each week and we will credit the best suggestions right here on the blog for the world to see! So without any further ado, here are our Top 5 Denim Brands:

  1. LEVIS

Denim is Levi’s birth right; they created the damn thing so if anyone knows how to produce a good pair of jeans, it’s these guys! As a brand they’ve never rested on their laurels. Levi’s is always looking to push the boundaries of what they can achieve with the fabric and what the idea of denim is. My trip to their San Francisco HQ and meeting all the team has reassured me that the brand is in good hands! Pair these with some RayBan sunglasses for a truly timeless look!

  1. NUDIE

Nudie Jeans are a solid denim brand. Accordining to their website: “The philosophy of Nudie Jeans is to become part of your dreams’. Jeans have a natural built-in dream and attitude. That may sound a little extreme but if you’ve ever tried on a pair, you’ll know that these jeans are a labour of love for this brand. Founded by Maria Erixsson, Nudie is a Swedish brand that has gone from strength-to-strength.

Our recent visit to Stockholm (Nudie was founded in Gothenburg, we know) made us realise what a stylish nation it is. Again, you’re in good hands with these guys.

  1. UNIQLO

I’ve always said Uniqlo has the best price-quality ratio on the high street and they deliver on the denim front too. They even provide great value Selvedge denim. For anyone who’s on a budget, Uniqlo are pretty hard to beat!

  1. A.P.C.

A.P.C. stands for ‘Atelier de Production et de Création’, and if you haven’t guessed already, it’s a French brand. One for the minimalist – they’re known for their quality and quick fading Selvedge denim. APC is a brand that doesn’t focus on branding but more on its slim fit, minimalist designs.

  1. EDWIN

Edwin is a Japanese denim brand that was founded in 1947.  “An authentic denim brand priding itself on innovation and craftsmanship, utilising exclusive fabrics and fabrication, unique technology, hand wash processes, and continual progression in design and fit.”

Originally importers of American work wear, they started producing Edwin (the name derives from the word ‘denim’ being re-arranged) jeans in 1963 using original American looms to create their now famous ‘rainbow’ selvage. A quick search online reveals the brand being involved in all respected online boutiques. Edwin jeans are a highly revered brand in the denim game!

Fine Options for the Dynamic Steps in Crypto Marketing Here

The marketing world is dynamic, interactive and changing, and because of its goal of adapting to new technologies, it must be able to carry out the changing approach of consumers.  Now there is a new change that promises for digital marketing, along with many other industries: blockchain.

The Progress:

In 2016, we saw that ad-blocking began to be the norm. Moreover, now, in 2018, we are seeing the blockchain increase, even from last year. You are already making significant changes in the financial world, and if you are not yet on your radar, you should be. The blockchain technology will not only apply to finance; its uses are much broader than anyone can imagine.

  • Therefore, if you want to ride in this lane or you have no idea what it is and how to do it, you came to the right place.
  • However, first, take a look at this TED where a partner of one of the pioneering companies in using Blockchainexplains how it will dominate commercial communications. Need to know more about it? Visit https://www.amarkets.com/promo/double-your-deposit/.

What is Blockchain?

Blockchain comes from the combination of two English words: block (or blocks) and chain (or chain). The blockchain is like a public accounting book (or a public purse) that everyone can see and share among all its users. It is the best peer-to-peer network.For its part, all people who use blockchain keep the ledger (or secure account book) updated. It is stored in a string type configuration, where the transaction history is stored in “blocks” and can only be built, not changed.

  • For example, if someone tries to hack, everyone would realise this hacking, because the ledger would be changed for all participants in the chain.
  • With the number of people who already use it, that is almost impossible. Can you imagine how safe it will be when there is the significant absorption of it?
  • The blockchain is outside any bank or government, which means that no central authority establishes regulations in this regard. Then you can fire the intermediary who charges a commission (i.e., banks or other financial institutions).
  • Blockchain has no centre, which means that everything is the same (it is decentralised).
  • Transactions are protected by the unchanging nature of the ledger, which gives greater cybersecurity.
  • There is nobody in charge of the blockchain as a whole.

There are many ways in which intelligent and innovative companies use blockchain, but the first, and probably the most listened to is Bitcoin. This is where the cryptocurrencies come in.They are not physical coins or cash, but stored in a “digital wallet”.It is practically like a foreign currency. Its value is still affected by supply/demand and world events, such as government policy.

Blockchain in digital marketing

Now that we have reviewed all the complicated technical information let’s apply this to digital marketing. Below are some of the areas in which you will begin to see changes.
