Name: Carter J Berge

City: Saskatoon

Occupation: Landscaper/Snow remover for Keystone Paving. Need your backyard redone?

Model and fabric: Olé Denim 13 oz PAIR NUMBER 003/250 BOYZZZ.

Wears: Ummmmm like 400+

Washes/Soaks: Washed them 3 times. always just soak in my rubba dub tub.

Washing rituals and methods: I only wash them if I spill something real nasty on them, aka once I fell into a puddle of mud and was like “well guess it’s time”. I always soak them in my old school jacuzzi tub with some soap, then a nice rinse to get all the soap out the jeans, and then hang dry

Fond memory in this pair: Not one memory really sticks out, but I know for a fact that I’ll be wearing these when my baby girl is born in July. I wear these daily so almost every memory involves these jeans.

Favourite sports team: SPURS NATION BABY – Too bad NBA is cancelled right now. Maybe for the best, worst Spurs season in my existence to date.

Favourite album: Right now really vibing on Oxnard by Anderson .Paak but my all time favourite is Graduation by Kanye West. TIMELESS

One website you visit daily: Ebay, I peruse every single sneaker on there daily to see if theres ever anything new to snag

Social media handle: @bergester check me out

What’s next for you: Well who really knows whats next for the world, but we’re having a baby girl In July so that will be the bomb diggity. Learning how to be a parent will be interesting and probably take up all of my time in the world but I am very very excited.

This pair of jeans have been worn since the original release of our products in 2015. They’ve experienced multiple hand washes, some repairs and have a lot of stories to tell. After a bit of wear, this thicker fabric becomes quite smooth and comfortable. In terms of aesthetics, the dark indigo gets a pop of blue in the areas where creasing tends to happen (whiskers on the thighs, honeycombs behind the knees and stacks near the bottom). The slubby characteristic of the fabric keeps things interesting and unique as well. But we won’t keep teasing you with descriptions, take a look for yourself.

Name: Ryan Mack

Occupation: Co-founder of Olé Denim and account executive of Fancy Creative Saskatoon.

Pair: 306 15oz Kuroki

Wears: Owned for two years and worn for approximately 16 months.

Washes/Soaks: Three hand washes because they’ve smelled like sweat and alcohol. Shoutout to the waitress who accidentally spilled a pint of Sapporo on me.

Washing rituals and methods: I just hand wash and rinse, I’ve used Laundress detergent upon recommendation in the past but I’m not too picky.

Fond memory in this pair: I think the first wear was one of the most special moments, it validated to me that Olé was official and ready to hit the market but there’s been plenty of other memories as well from my girlfriend’s graduation to traveling around Western Canada over the past two years.

Favourite sports team: Chelsea FC

One website you visit daily: The Weather Network and Reddit’s rawdenim.

Social media handle: @mack_siuming on both Instagram and Twitter.

What’s next for you: Time to enjoy the summer!

Name: Dustin Veitch

Occupation: Multimedia Producer and Photographer

Model and fabric: 306 13oz

Wears: 1 year, nearly every day

Washes/Soaks: 2 soaks, 3 repairs

Washing rituals and methods: I dip my Olé’s in a shallow bath of cool water and Woolite Dark. Sometimes I weigh the jeans down, and sometimes I don’t, depending on how ambitious I’m feeling. I let ‘em soak for 45 minutes, drain the tub, fill it again to let them soak for another 20 and gently hang-dry. Next time, I’ll probably just throw them in the regular wash.

Fond memory in this pair: I’ve been wearing my Olé’s just about every day for the last year. They’ve become a regular part of my life, as much as my wallet, boots and watch. They’ve been with me through thick and thin, so it’s hard to pinpoint a specific memory.

Favourite artist/photographer: I can only recite titles of a few of his lauded masterpieces, such as The Tetons and Snake River’ or ‘Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico’, but it’s not just Ansel Adams’ images that resonate with me. Not only did he influence the world around him with his artwork, his inspiration also led him to, literally, write the book on it. Many of his techniques are relevant and still taught in today’s largely digital world.

What’s next for you: It’s never easy to tell what’s beyond the next few rolls of film. I’ve recently started getting my feet wet with large format photography, specifically working on portraiture. It’s been a slow process getting familiar with the equipment and learning how to process the media, but I am at the point where I am starting to see consistent results and I’m proud of that.
