Who is Long John
Long John is an online magazine established in 2011 by Wouter Munnichs. Long John shares daily the latest news about denim and high-quality made products. You can explore the latest (denim) trends, meet (denim) people, find the most outstanding pieces and stores, and see what’s happening in the industry.
Long John is a perfect guide to give you more knowledge, by showing you all the ins and outs, from outstanding goods and unique initiatives. The core of the content is focussed on denim.
I’m nominated as denim ‘Influencer 2020’ by Rivet 50. This is an index of the most creative and forward-thinking leaders driving the global jeanswear industry.
