About Kingpins

The denim industry is a low-key community built on heritage, passion, innovation and connection.

We launched our jeans supply chain show in 2004 in New York as a way to connect the denim industry. But we soon realized the denim community is even larger than we thought, and we took our concept around the world and are now the largest Denim Supply Chain show in the world with contact to 20,000 denim professionals.

We are committed to sharing ideas with the denim industry and inspiring each other to continually learn as much as we can. We strive to be productive and progressive members of the indigo community and are dedicated to bringing sustainability and best practices to the industry.

About Kingpins Quarterly

Small is good. We started that way. The denim community is connected, engaged and global. Today, Kingpins’ reach is bigger than ever. We have learned a lot along the way—but our core values and our intimate approach to the denim trade remain the same.

Today, we are bringing the same outlook to Kingpins Quarterly, our new publication, designed to spark conversation, spotlight your voices and celebrate our progress.
