A few weeks ago I posted the new denim book ‘True Fit’ from Viktor Fredback, which is a really cool one, but there’s more coming next year! This February another denim book will launched called ‘Denim Dudes’ by Amy Leverton. Amy Leverton is a denim expert who has worked in the industry for ten years, most recently at the leading trend forecasting website, WGSN where she is currently Director of Denim and Youth Culture.

For her new book she portrayed around 80 key players in the denim scene such as Jason Denham (Denham), François Girbaud, (Marithé + François Girbaud), Adriano Goldschmied (Diesel, 7 For All Mankind) and Kenichi and Kenji Shiotani (Warehouse Japan), etc. The book also explores the very best and latest denim styling on the street, from bikers to vintage dealers and store owners. Exclusive photography for the book was shot in Paris, Tokyo, London, New York, LA, Milan, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Barcelona, Melbourne, Gothenburg and Sydney.

The book will be published by Laurence King who also did an amazing job with the book ‘Vintage Menswear’ from the owners of The Vintage Showroom store and archive. There are 272 pages in her new book filled with great fullcolour pictures from dudes in denim. Amy is already working on the 2nd edition: ‘Denim Dudettes’! Wow, sounds very good! Can’t wait to see the first edition in February. Guess we will have to wait a little while, but for now we have already some sneak pages, check it here below! Bravo Amy.
