Antwerp: Jeans Roots and Boots event

The denim scene in Antwerp is currently thriving… with notable fledgeling denim brands such as Eat Dust as well big players like Lee and Wrangler based in the city, there are plenty of denim heads around to create a strong scene.

We’re off to Antwerp in a couple of weeks to check out the city and will definitely be dropping by the Kings & Queens store to meet owner Hans Bollan and take a look around his shop. Last night they held an event in collaboration with Eat Dust denim and Red Wing shoes which looked like a great success. The guys at Red Wing were on hand to condition boots and friend to the store Joe hand-tattooed customer’s pairs to create a personalized look. London jewelers The Great Frog were also presenting their new collection.

The evening was fueled by Rum, Beer and hotdogs and the Eat Dust guys were out in full force, creating a biker-heavy crowd that spilled into the street.

So if you’re planning a trip to Antwerp in the near future, check out the store:
