Paul Kruize is a bespoke tailor specializing in jeans. He likes to keep things simple and small. Just one man… One machine, making one pair of jeans at a time. Cut and sewn exclusively for the individual client. It’s all about quality in fabric, design, technique and – without a doubt – fit.
His lifelong passion for denim brought him to making jeans. Years earlier he had already done a few things in the field. He made trousers, shirts jacket, the lot. For jeans though, he had to start from scratch.
“Who I am as a person and who I am as an artisan doesn’t differ that much. What I do is very close to myself. I feel I can only work in a way that I believe is the right way. I hope people will appreciate these beliefs and will show an interest in what I do and make. I truly feel you have to do what makes you tick and stay true to yourself.”
