The Tenth Episode of The Denim & Boots Podcast
We made it to 10 episodes! Yay!! 🕺
If you’ve been with us since we launched in the beginning of April with the first three episodes, thank you! ✊🏻 If you’re new to the podcast, welcome! 👋🏻
Ever since the first episode, Jake and I have been learning and improving. Mostly in terms of how we run things behind the scenes with things like how we prepare for each episode to stay focused and how we edit it once recorded.
For this episode, we’re doing something a little more drastic as we’re changing up the format from a two co-host discussion setup to having a guest on the show.
Topic of the episode: How jeans are made
Since we’ve now talked about leather and non-denim trousers for the past two episodes, respectively, it’s time to talk about jeans! It’s time for an episode I’ve been looking forward to doing; the one about how jeans are made.
And who better to talk about this than someone who’s actually making jeans. That’s why we invited Ben Viapiana from Viapiana Custom Denim onto the show.
Ben is a second-generation tailor and one-man brand. On the episode, he explains the steps he goes through to make a pair of jeans, from drawing the pattern to the last stitch. He also shares the story of how he got into denim, including the role his father played.
We really hope you’ll enjoy this episode as much as we did making it.
