Christmas comes early for ClobberCalm
As Christmas is a time for giving, we thought we'd mark the arrival of the newest addition to Sheffield's denim community by popping round and presenting Ben Woodhouse (better known as denim instagram blogger @clobbercalm) with one of our new Kuroki Denim 'The Biker' jackets.
Ben launched the Clobber Calm Supply Co a couple of weeks ago, basing the shop in a converted industrial building in the Kelham Island area of the city. As anyone who follows Ben's instagram will expect, the shop sells a range of iconic denim brands alongside such goodies as Red Wing boots, Barnes and Moore leather accessories and Topo Designs backpacks.
When we were there, Ben and his colleague Sean Hughes were just putting the finishing touches to the room at the back of the shop which will be stocking a wide range of vintage heritage garments, with a focus on workwear, unique tees and military clothing. Before joining Ben at Clobber Calm, Sean spent three years repairing jeans at Nudie's shop in London, so if you have some denim that needs a bit of TLC, your precious jeans will be in good hands.
We'll look forward to seeing more of Ben in the New Year and wish him every success in his new venture.
