CREATED IN HOLLAND / CRAFTED IN JAPAN
Benzak Denim Developers is a Dutch premium denim brand, focusing on pure products and functional design. All production of the BDD jeans is done by artisans in Japan, from Japanese denim fabrics. And for the personal, final touch, all jeans are finished by me in Holland!
All denim products are the beginning of a journey, which needs to be developed by the wearer. Out of the passion for jeans and inspired by the unique fading capabilities of denim, BDD was born. Rather than seasonal collections, BDD develops timeless pieces that can go anytime, anywhere. High quality and durability are mandatory -- function over fashion is key.
By wear and wash the denim of your pair will develop its personal character. No single pair will be the same. Be the developer of your denim and become part of the world of benzak.
BDD BRAND BOOK
THE ORIGINAL 6 POCKET JEANS
Most jeans as we know feature 5 pockets: 2 on the back, 2 on the front and 1 extra at the facing of the right front pocket. This extra pocket, commonly known as the coin pocket, was used to carry small objects, such as coins, a watch or even nuggets of gold. The modern day cowboy often carries a bit more to that, thus BDD introduces a standard 6th pocket - a hidden pocket at the facing of the left front pocket, only noticeable by the exposed selvedge at the top, just under the waistband. I simply call this:
'The evolution of a classic'

THE 2ND PRODUCTION RUN
A year ago, the 1st production run of Benzak Denim Developers was launched by a crowd funding project -- with success. This preserved the integrity and independency of the brand, and to keep this concept going, BDD will launch another crowd funding project to fund the 2nd production run. By this, BDD will avoid to deal with banks or big investors, who force revenue and endanger the creativity of the project. BDD only allows the best, and to achieve this your help is needed!
SO.. WHERE DOES THE FUNDING GO?
All funding will be used to cover the costs of the 2nd production run, only. The starting goal has been set on 5.000 EUR, which allows me to launch the production, but not yet cover all costs. This will be reached at the second goal, at 20.000 EUR. If this second goal will be reached, a special edition jeans will be added to the perks, for delivery later this year.
All funding should be considered as pre-orders. And by pre-ordering , you will be rewarded with a 20% discount from the retail price. And all goods will be shipped for free, worldwide! All goods will be delivered in September 2014, so the wait is not even that long!
WHAT SIZE TO TAKE?
You won't have to specify your size yet; after the pre-order period ends, you will be contacted by BDD and get advised about which size to take!
BDD-006 - deep indigo
BDD-006 is the slim fit. This one has the darkest colour by BDD, it has been extra dipped to create the deep indigo colour, and the construction is super tight to maintain this deep colour, even after wash. Despite it being very dark, the fading potential is amazing!
>> 14.7 oz. right hand twill - deep indigo // slim fit - slim legs

BDD-710 - green cast
BDD-710 is the regular fit with tapered legs. The green cast colour is inspired from deadstock denim fabric. Because this is a left hand twill, the fabric will become super soft and comfy after wear and wash, without losing its heavy body!
>> 14.7 oz. left hand twill - green cast // regular fit - tapered legs

BDD-006 - dark tone >> NEW STYLE
This is a new style. The same fit is used as BDD-006 - deep indigo, but with a different fabric - dark tone denim. The weft yarns (inside) are indigo dyed as well (instead of ecru), which creates the dark tone colour. The fabric also contains slubby yarns for interesting fading. Double indigo for true blue maniacs!
>> 14 oz. right hand twill - dark tone // slim fit - slim legs
BDD-016 - grey cast >> NEW STYLE
This is a new style. The top block is very similar to the BDD-006, but the legs are more tapered. This is tightest BDD fit. The fabric construction is the same as used for the BDD-710 - green cast, but for this one a grey cast colour is used. And it is little over an oz. lighter in weight.

Risks and challenges
Just like any other Kickstarter project, this one is still in development. All funds will be used for the production of the products, for nothing else. But there is always the possibility a delay occurs during the production process. If this happens, it will be communicated on this page and directly with all contributors. The first crowd funding project went really smooth regarding fulfilling my end of the bargain, so the same is expected for this one!
