EnCompass was established in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2013.

After a lifelong love of denim and streetwear, founder Benji seized the opportunity to open his own store. Christchurch had experienced a devastating series of earthquakes two years earlier and the city was slowly rebuilding itself. A boutique shopping complex on the outskirts of the city, The Tannery, was near completion and had space available to rent. Benji felt that it was the perfect space for a new streetwear store.

Benji’s quality service and unique denim-fitting skills have grown EnCompass from a small start-up to one of the most well-known denim stores in the country. Dubbed ‘The Jeans Whisperer’ by media, Benji personally selects denim and fashion for each customer from a mix of local and international brands.

EnCompass’s professional staff have been highly trained to provide personal and genuine advice on selecting and fitting. This level of detail, to cater for each customer, ensures everyone leaves EnCompass feeling and looking their best.
