Launched in Asia in 2010, dENiZEN was created by the people who invented jeans.
The dENiZEN name means “inhabitant” – belonging to a community of family and friends. Denim is in the name, the heart of the brand.
The dENiZEN brand is currently available in China, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Singapore and the United States.
My recent visit to Denizen was pleasant enough. So it started with a helpful shop assistant querying me about what I would like, and she subsequently took me through a selection of denim shirts, all of which I was suitably impressed. I found this dark blue shirt I really liked, but as she told me the price, my stomach churned. '$60?! Got discount or not?' upon which she helpfully told me ' No worries sir, you buy 2 $100.' This made me feel worse as though its a cheaper deal, $100 only serves to put extra strain on my wallet and I have no need for a 2nd shirt. Hence, I left the shop a disappointed man.
Moral of the story? Denizen is more of a classy store, the products are fantastic yes, but shop there only if you have the means to do so.
I headed into dENIZEN after the price tags in Levis turned me away. Having heard that dENIZEN is the sister brand to the latter, I decided to give the store a browse. Priced at a fraction of Levis', it was a good start. I did manage to find a good pair from them which also help boost my gluteus maximus. A definite thumbs up from me! With such good quality offered my dENIZEN, it will now be my go-to place to stock up on long lasting denim jeans.
Denizen, as its name suggests, provides denim at a cheaper price as compared to its mother brand Levi's. The image that Denizen tries to portray with its advertisements strike me as a young, vibrant, and youthful brand that injects happiness and energy into any activity for a wearer of their product.
Despite that, while it may seem appealing from the advertisements, the price is still relatively expensive to other pairs of jeans. The quality of the jeans are not as good as its mother brand - in fact, an impulse purchase made me realise that the price I had paid for a pair of jeans was due to its marketing and branding, not quality or material. I could have easily gotten a non-branded pair of jeans from Forever 21 for a much more reasonable price.
I find Denizens to be just as good at a fraction of the price. True, you will not have that coveted red tabs on your back pocket, but who really cares? Nobody looks at what you are wearing below.
Well, ok. Guys look at what girls wear below...but trust me, we do not look out for the red tab.
Denizen offers similar quality to Levi's, after all they are under the same company. However, Denizen offers their jeans at a fraction of the price that Levi's offers theirs. So for those going for quality and not the "pride" of having a pair of Levi's hugging your waist, Denizen is the place to go.
For me, Denizen is just… blah. There’s really nothing great about the denim, and for about $50, I’m sure you can get nicer and more comfortable jeans at Uniqlo. Denizen also has a variety of T-shirts and casual tops for both men and women, but again, it’s nothing remarkable. The designs are very simple and the quality leaves much to be desired. In all, Denizen is definitely not somewhere I would shop at, because there are simply much better choices out there, which beat Denizen in terms of design and comfort.
This t-shirt that I got from the Big Walk was made of better material and after so many wash, it still retained its shape and I had yet to detect any wear and tear. Like many people used to say "You pay for what you get", that year Big Walk was the most expensive that I remembered but the t-shirt itself made it worth paying for the extra. The next time I needed to shop for a new t-shirt, this will definitely be a brand that I would consider. Not so much for the design but more for the lasting materials.
Their denims are pretty tough and long lasting, as well as their belt which I absolutely adore for their vintage and classic designs. But other than that, it's pretty unappealing for the females around my age group. Rarely will I have friends who'd say, 'hey! let's get denim at denizen!' - unless for their belts, I think I probably won't be stepping in again any time soon.
I think the working staffs are highly professional too. When the item I wanted is out of stock at the Jurong Point outlet, the staff called the other outlets upon my request. No complains whatsoever, they remained as polite and friendly as ever. These traits are really something that make me enjoy my shopping experience.
dENIZEN can have me patronize their stores willingly the next time!
I'm not a Levi's fan, and dENiZEN basically is a worser brand, one step below Levi's (who is already bottom-rung) for me. Their prices are also something which I definitely would NOT pay for, even though it's cheaper than most reputable jeans/apparell brand.
I did try on a dENiZEN jeans once, skinny-cut. Fits horribly, and the staff there didn't even try to give alternatives. She's all, "looks fine" when I know it wasn't.
Basically, I wouldn't care if they closed down.. that's my general sentiment towards them.
