We remember that once, in the past, long time ago, denim was a synonymous of USA. All the denim stuff came from there. The big players were Levi's and Lee. No doubts. Then, something has finally happened. It's always a pleasure, to me, to discover a new brand. A pleasure even bigger if the brand is from Italy like The Blue Blanket. A brand established and runned by a true denim connoisseur and collector, Antonio Di Battista. The project is really simple: honest and very good products plus a sick attention to details. No frills. Very good. We love it!

We already wrote about Maurizio Donadi almost one year ago. He was still Vice President at Levis Vintage Clothing in Amsterdam. We've already had a great admiration for his job, for LVC but also for what he was able to do with RRL. Now we've read he's just launched a Consultancy Agency, together with his wife, called Conduit Creative. Reading here and there is going to work with a brand like Filson, so we're terribly curious to see what is coming out in the next months. Congratulazioni Maurizio, and, as we say in Italy, "in bocca al lupo"!
Anyway, let's start again... :-)
