Loaded Stories: Featuring Matt Baldwin Matt Baldwin is founder and visionary of his clothing company, BALDWIN. The embodiment of an entrepreneurial spirit—he started his fashion career at FIDM in apparel manufacturing and soon after opened up his own boutique in Kansas City. He started BALDWIN in 2009, while himself and his wife were still running their boutique. At the time, the denim market had reached peak trends and his customers longed for a classic American denim with a sophisticated style. Seeing this need in the market for something different, Matt decided to take some inspiration from his hometown in Kansas City. He started with authentic American denim and combined that with impeccable craftsmanship and design. On the website, the company states: “BALDWIN is for the individual that cares about every textile, every stitch, every seam – finished or raw, and wants to tell a story about their style – not have their style tell a story about them.”
Matt didn’t just create good-looking jeans. He honed in on the idea that denim should be like a good pair of boots—less about what it looks like when you first get them and more about what they look like and feel like over time. Matt mastered the concept of fashion and function. With his styles being raw denim, they get even better over time and can be worn and torn, while still looking good. Because his product is built to last while still being fashionable, it’s worth every penny. BALDWIN has been featured nationally and globally in GQ, Vogue and various other fashion publications. Jay Z, Ellen DeGeneres and George Clooney are a just few notable celebrities who have endorsed BALDWIN for his flawless designs.
One of the many reasons why Loaded Vodka loves BALDWIN so much is because the clothing brand was born in Kansas City. As some of you may know, Loaded Vodka is also made in Kansas City. Just like BALDWIN, Loaded Vodka saw a need in the market for something different. Loaded Vodka makes vodka that is 100% gluten free. Drink Loaded Vodka for an excessively smooth tasting drink.
