Free & Easy and Lightning Magazine available @ Blue Blood!

All the way from Japan Blue Blood now offers Free & Easy and Lightning amongst her magazines in the P.C. Hooftstraat shop. The magazines are much sought-after by denim lovers and purists. The term magazine is hardly sufficient for these monthly libraries of denim and other “blue” inspired items. These stylebooks feature articles and photo’s of authentic vintage clothing, shoes, outerwear, bikes and the collectors of all these goods. The books are inspired by American vintage but executed in a typical Japanese way. For topics think of styles inspired by military, US college life and the great outdoors. The leading denim magazines are rarely seen outside of Japan, they are a must for anyone who admires the Japanese denim and vintage scene. It is a definitive guide to Japans denim brands.

Get your hands on one now! You can leave your contact details if you want to sign up for a monthly copy. We will call you when the new issue arrives and keep one to the side by request.

I can hear the indigo coursing through your veins, so run!
