MR PORTER and Blamo! have launched a new podcast exploring the worlds of denim, tailoring, and streetwear with a few of the most prominent men's style authorities. All three episodes of the series, titled MR PORTER x Blamo! Podcast, have been released today. The podcast is hosted by Blamo!'s Jeremy Kirkland, known for his menswear industry podcast by the same name.
On the first episode, Eric Goldstein, Founding Partner of Jean Shop, and Michael Williams, Founder of A Continuous Lean, discuss the origins of denim, the industry's move to sustainable practices, and why the world continues to admire the cotton jean. Saman Amel and Dag Granath, Founders of the Stockholm-based tailoring brand Saman Amel, examine how classic tailoring has evolved for the modern gentleman in today's day and age.
The third episode features Highsnobiety's very own Editorial Director Jian DeLeon in conversation with Kirkland on the topic of streetwear, discussing its origins and how it has shaped the world of fashion and culture at large. From a brief history of street culture to its modern impact on the runway, DeLeon offers a mix of The Dropcast's sense of humor with the self-aware sense of education on our other podcast, Why It's Cool.
Keep an eye out for MR PORTER's expanding podcast repertoire, which will continue to grow in early 2020 with new series on subjects relating to men's style and modern life. All three episodes of MR PORTER x Blamo! are available in MR PORTER's The Journal, and they can be streamed along with future episodes of the MR PORTER Podcast via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other major podcast providers.
