Here we asked denim lover, blogger & expert Thomas Stege Bojer aka The Denimhunter to list and write about his very personal top ten denim stores around the globe.
Each day in the next two weeks we will present one of Bojer's favorites.
Today, it's part III with Second Sunrise in Stockholm.
"Douglas Luhanko has been a denimhead since he was a teenager in the early '00s. His passion was triggered by the characteristics of cotton, the durability of twill fabric and the mystery of indigo, as he puts it. 'I guess a tipping point was when my brother and I went on a road trip and bought a couple of old sewing machines,' he recalls. He soon started making his own jeans. And in 2009, he went to Nevada hunting for vintage denim in abandoned Nevada mines.
'We do try to keep our selection interesting and our sizes in stock,' they explain. 'But we think the most important thing about running a store is being friendly and creating a space where everyone feels welcome and at ease'."
