There is a brand new idea and concept on the scene when it comes to the closures of denim. One brand changing the way a button and zip fly works is Envius Denim. If you’re tired of seeing the same old run-of-the-mill denim, these jeans might intrigue you. We have seen different washes, cuts, styles, and colors, however nothing has ever been done to change the shape and style of women’s jeans so drastically, until now. This Los Angeles, California based company, has created a whole new closure for jeans, using metal.
Freenote Clothing is a brand new company that will be hitting the market at the beginning of March. It includes some denim, woven garments, knits, bottoms and jackets and is made exclusively in the United States. All of the denim is 100% selvedge and is procured from either Cone Mills and Kuroki in Japan. Freenote is a classic menswear apparel brand which is premium and high quality, sorry ladies, it’s not for us unfortunately! The brand was started by brothers Matthew and Andrew Brodrick and is headquartered in San Juan Capistrano, California. It aims to be classic rather than follow trends, so that’s something to look out for! You can find out more about the brand in the press release below and see photos in the gallery.
“Our line was inspired primarily by timeless American icons. The foundation of the collection is based on the durability and simplicity found in early work wear. Pioneers, rebels, the Wild West, the first rock and rollers, traditional “Southern Hospitality” culture, rail road workers and cowboys, all inspire the distinguishing design elements that recur throughout the line,” says Matt Brodrick, co-founder of Freenote. “The result is a set of classic, high-quality staples that will outlast trends.”
Andrew Brodrick, co-founder of Freenote, adds, “We place utmost importance on the quality and craftsmanship of our product, but also on those who help to create it. By housing all manufacturing domestically we ensure product is made responsibly. At the same time, we maintain complete creative control from original design to final product.”
Brothers Matt and Andrew Brodrick founded Freenote in 2013. Combined they have 20 years of experience in the garment industry and their experience ranges from design and production, to sales, operations and finance.
Diego Milano is a new denim brand that has just launched this fall! They have a high-end premium collection that has amazingly detailed denim with all Italian fabric and custom hardware. They have aimed to create a unique look that mixes high fashion with inspiration from the Southwest with a rebellious rock n’ roll spirit. Their washes are created by a specialized Denim Artist that has made them all one-of-a-kind and each garment is like a masterpiece.
The Diego Milano home office is stationed out of Los Angeles, California and was founded by Chris Kay after finding a need for unique high quality denim. After meeting designer Linda Thithavong, he decided to create a rebellious denim collection with a heart of gold. While the collection is designed and made in the USA, all materials and hardware are imported from Italy, and portions of the proceeds are going to help others in need!
“We are dedicated to keeping our denim manufactured in the US and only use the highest quality Italian made fabrics, trims, and hardware. Along with this mission, we are also donating a larger-than-normal portion of our profits to make sure that children in India, who are most commonly the victims of Child Labor in the clothing industry, get a proper education and are not subject to the horrific conditions of labor in manufacturing factories.” -Diego Milano’s COO, Jessi Caruso.
“We stand by our product 100% and want to create a relationship with our customers. With alterations and custom modifications available for the lifetime of your Diego Milano denim, we strive to make the best jeans in the world.” “Every detail has a meaning behind it and we stay true to our stand against Child Labor ensuring every step of our supply chain adheres to the same ethics and morals as we do”, states Caruso.
So what do you think of Diego Milano? You can see some of the unique pieces in the look book below! Have any of you tried their brand yet since the launch?
MQT Denim is a brand I have just been introduced to. It was created by three generations of manufacturing expertise. The family run company ‘MQT’ was built based on the principles of quality and authentic European manufacturing. Every garment is put through vigorous tests to ensure the highest standards of quality are met. This extensive knowledge and family spirit was the original inspiration behind the brand identity and ultimately the MQT name itself which represents ‘Mastering Quality Tradition’.
