Inspiring Documentary-Style Film

Josef Schindler is the driving force behind his Joe & Co brand from Manchester, UK. He teamed up with Samuel Green to work on a documentary-style film to highlight his denim story. Now, the first part is released as ‘Made in England’. In the film, he’s sharing his inspiring story of how he started, you will even see shots of previous stores where he used to work, and he’s giving an insight into his production facilities too.

Produced In Manchester

Josef started his career at a very young age in several stores and later as an agent too. Around 1987 he started his own brand Joe & Co where he’s making garments and jeans made in England. He’s using British, Italian, and Japanese raw selvedge denim fabrics and high-quality (deadstock) fabrics for his timeless styles. All his jeans and workwear-inspired items are produced in Manchester. So, spun, woven, handcrafted, and made to last in the NW of England.

With his brand, he’s not following fashion trends, but his brand is dedicated to the tradition of the highest quality of design, attention to detail, and craftsmanship. He’s paying homage to the icons of yesterday and creating a new take on past trends.
