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.

Indigo Apron Collection

To celebrate 3 years of Fit To Live and Olé Denim, we are really excited to share with you our Indigo Apron Collection.

Over the past three years we have been fortunate enough to converse with many of our customers and get into conversation that transcends beyond denim. Through our conversations it was very evident that many of our customers were, first and foremost, creators – tattoo artists, culinary masterminds, coffee shop owners, restaurateurs, painters, graffiti artists, photographers and designers.

That got us to thinking about a product that we could create that could come close to representing the multitude of talent we ran into. From this train of thought we began to develop a small collection of minimalistic aprons that could fit seamlessly into the lives of many of our customers.

The first apron is constructed from our classic 13.2oz Vintage Selvedge ($120) used in our popular 306 denim. The second is produced from a custom vintage 11.75oz Kaihara Denim ($80) that had been sitting dormant in a Winnipeg warehouse before being generously gifted to us by our very good friend, Roy Liang.

The aprons feature an adjustable waist and neck strap allowing it to fit a range of sizes from women’s XS to men’s XXL. Both aprons utilize the same antique brass hardware, 1″ environmentally-friendly natural cotton webbing and Ken Diamond handcrafted leather label. Both aprons are proudly made in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
