Forge Denim is a jeans / menswear company founded by Richard Mappin and Alex Mir.
Forge Denim is based in Sheffield, the city where we grew up and where we still live. (The branded steel buttons for Forge Denim jeans are made by a company located in the same street where Alex was born.) Sheffield is a city of makers, which values craftsmanship, plain speaking and treating people fairly. We would like to think that Forge Denim reflects these values.
Forge Denim, is based on the principles that:
1 - We want to incorporate the craftsmanship that is part of the denim heritage, whilst taking a modern approach to design and fit.
2 - Our aim is to make the very best jeans and menswear that we can, rather than making clothes to a particular price point.
3 - All our clothing is manufactured in the UK, using companies that we have selected for the quality of their work, and the care that they showed towards their staff and the environment.
When we designed the first Forge Denim collection, we paid attention to those small elements that make a difference between a pair of jeans that you wear, and a pair that become your favourite item of clothing – jeans that look good and feel good from the moment you put them on.
After launching Forge Denim in 2017, we set up our own shop, Arnold & Co, on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield in May 2018. The shop sells the full Forge Denim range, as well as other selected brands, and we have a heritage barbers shop on the ground floor of the premises.
