Stores opened up by specific denim brands are popping up everywhere. We understand the pull they have on those that want to remain brand loyal. However, in our opinion, if you want to meet true denim specialists, those that are the most knowledgeable about denim regardless of brand, then you have to go to a shop that specializes in denim and its lifestyle. Almost every major city has one that is a must-go for denimheads and now West Yorkshire UK can boast one of their own.

Kiosk 78 just opened August of this year and has already been getting major buzz, being featured in Denimology, Front Magazine and Drapers magazine with word of a possible shout out in FHM magazine’s next denim issue.

For the most part a men’s boutique, they consider themselves specialists in Japanese selvage denim, stocking brands such as Pure Blue Japan, Flathead, Warehouse and Skull Jeans, as well as other international brands like A.P.C. and Nom de Guerre.

"Our brand list is growing all the time and we are continuously on the lookout for brands that share our ethos. Subtle style and detailing combined with the highest quality materials and construction, and brands that have a true feel of exclusivity will always be at the forefront of our collections." Says Gavin of Kiosk 78

Visit their shop at 7 Duncan St in Leeds City Centre, West Yorkshire, England.
