We dropped into to see the guys at Miner49er at their newest concept store located in Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui district.
The store is a real showcase for premium selvedge denim from the California based ‘Denim Design Lab’ and Montreal based ‘Bzen’ as well as vintage inspired T’s books and other unique hard to find items.
All the jeans sold for both men and women are produced from denim woven on vintage shuttle looms, built to last using the same hard wearing construction techniques found on original vintage workwear. As they like to say “Denim built so tough you can trust your gold nuggets will be safe” … although once in there you’re likely to be trading your gold nuggets for some of that premium denim!
Their first location in San Clemente, CA is housed in an historic 1920s building and also features a small but permanent museum with original artefacts focused on the history of denim as well as items dating back to the California Gold Rush of the mid 1800s.
Definitely worth the visit if you are in the vicinity.
