METHOD OF DENIM IS A CUSTOM DENIM LABEL IN COLLABORATION WITH YOU. TOGETHER WE CREATE PREMIUM THREADS MADE TO FIT, MADE TO YOUR STYLE AND MADE TO LAST A LIFETIME. THIS IS YOUR DESIGN, YOUR DNA, YOUR DENIM. WEAR IT HOW YOU LIKE IT.
Everything begins with a love for denim. It’s the sophistication of 00s raw, the 90s grunge, the acid wash of the 80s, the groove of the 70s. Denim shouldn’t be restricted by a decade. It’s about breaking the rules, an expression of creativity and a celebration of oneself. Everyone has denim in their life and possibly a story surrounding their favourite piece.
Founded in 2017 by Lloyd Boolkin, and inspired by his grandfather who arrived in Australia after WW2 and was one of the first importers of 9oz denim to Australia, you could say denim is in Lloyd’s DNA as his blood bleeds indigo blue.
Method of Denim is part of the new wave of labels that are doing their part to address the issue of overproduction within the fashion industry by rejecting the dehumanizing effects of mass production and consumerism In order to combat so much unsustainable waste, we only make denim pieces that have been pre-ordered and already have a home. Method of Denim is not only an act of rebellion; it’s a way of creating a final garment that is truly representative of who you are. This means that you get jeans that fit, jackets that are unique and distinctive basics whilst doing your bit to combat resource mismanagement.
In a true collaboration between you and the brand, Method of Denim utilises digital pattern generating technology and predictive body measurement to craft premium essentials made to your individual body measurements. From the wash to the hem, distress, and fit, you’re in charge. This is denim made for you, by you – and there ain’t no other piece like it.
This is your Design, your Denim, your DNA.
This is Method of Denim.
THE MOD CREW
Lloyd B - Founder | Denim Dude
Spending the better part of the last 10 years running some of Sydney’s most iconic night haunts and venues, Lloyd’s love of denim is only matched by his love of Negroni and spiced rum.
Lloyd had always considered denim to be his ‘uniform’, serving a purpose for both style and practicality. Unable to find the perfect pair of threads made to fit and to his own unique style, Lloyd always took a DIY approach, customising jeans and jackets at home to wear it exactly the way he liked it. And there the idea behind Method of Denim was born.
From the brand inception in 2017 and the creation of bespoke customisations, right through to the name of each style, every little detail can be linked back to his time behind some of the cities most infamous bars.
Founded under the belief that creativity is the best form of self-expression, Lloyd, and his killer squad, aim to deliver bespoke creations combined with world class, premium denim with a single mantra - ‘ Sustainability is not a constraint. We are change-makers and this issue means we can make a positive difference through innovation.’
