Hamburg’s premium denim shop Vater&Sohn
After months of industry buzzing, on the 1st of March Hamburg’s new premium denim retailer Vater&Sohn finally opened for business. Vater&Sohn has from day 1 set out to join the big league of the European denim retail scene. The shop is located the fifth largest city in Europe, it has an impressive start up selection of brands including 3sixteen, Rising Sun & Co., Indigofera, Red Wing Shoes, and Filson, and it is run by three hardcore and perfectionist denim enthusiasts with more experience than you could imagine. Vater&Sohn is the realisation of a dream; although the concept may at first seem familiar, no one has done it quite like this before.
Contrary to what you might think when you first encounter the name of the shop, there is no ‘father and son’ in Vater&Sohn, at least the three founders Stefan Kudla (left), Sascha Kampmeyer (middle) and Tobias Pflug (right) aren’t father and sons. But one thing is for certain, they all have burning passions for authentic high quality clothes, especially denim and boots. As Stefan describes it, “Vater&Sohn is just the synonym for men because all men are sons, and we carry stuff that you can hand down to the next generation”. Let’s get to know who these three guys are.
