“I love natural beauty; for this reason I work with simple colors found in nature. When I see denim I see blue of the water and sky. When I see leather (I see) the brown of wood. I love the balance and purity of it all." – Jeff Shafer

Strengthening its voice among denim purists, FLAUNT MAGAZINE invited AGAVE designer and owner Jeff Shafer to be a contributing editor for its much talked about denim issue. Hitting newstands this month, the issue features Shafer’s 4-day Portland-to-LA road trip story, complete with sweeping photography of the journey.

The 10-page editorial details the lifestyle and design inspirations behind the denim brand as Shafer narrates his drive down the West Coast in his “denim blue” Audi R8. Along the way, the designer stops at some of his favorite, most inspirational spots. Pit stops include the Portland Japanese Garden (Shafer uses lots of premium denim from Japan), Cannon Beach, Tillamook Bay, Newport Beach (Oregon), The Redwoods, Trinity River, San Luis Obispo and Santa Ynez.
