Men Looking for Perfect Denim Jeans

Searching for the perfect pair of jeans?  Well, we can’t make any promises.  However, we have put together a rather fine list to help you on your quest.  Clearly, not all men’s jeans stores are created equal.  Some are clearly better than others.  For those of you that are interested in moving closer toward your goal of finding the perfect pair of jeans, here are a few more boutiques to add to your list of stores to further investigate.

3x1 (New York) Bespoke denim jeans retailer, 3x1 in Soho NYC offers custom tailor made jeans for men and women using the best premium material.  After successfully launching Paper Denim & Cloth (1999) and Earnest Sewn (2004), founder Scott Morrison’s love affair with denim has officially reached a new level with 3x1. The denim legend has created the world's first 'Bespoke' process for denim connoisseurs and jean lovers alike. Scott personally oversees the design of every 3x1 jean, meaning his fingerprints will be all over your bespoke pair.
M5 ROEBLING from 3x1
The Roebling uses a heavier 14 oz 100% cotton red caste selvedge denim from Kurabo in Japan. The wash pattern and tinting is very authentic and looks like you broke them in from a raw pair of jeans. The rust marks and phone wear give this jean a very natural looking break-in.

Brown Denim (Boston) Brown Denim provides Bespoke jeans.  Custom Jeans with fabric to Be-Spoken for. The true Bespoke process of unlimited fabric choices.  Denim in any color & texture. 100% cotton from the finest mills in Japan, Italy, & Cone Mills of the USA.  All different weights for the various climates & stretch if preferred for relaxing comfort.   The chosen name, Brown representing my specialty of hand-craftsmanship. Deim illustrating the finest, historical cloth with origins from Nimes/France begetting Deim de Nimes. Boston Custom is where all design, patterns, production, & hand craft takes place.

OriJeans (Maryland) OriJeans began as a kickstarter campaign to produce individually hand-crafted jeans, from raw, selvedge denim, delivered at an affordable price.  Selvedge denim is a beautiful thing, it’s real, it’s authentic and it’s original.  And we want to make it more available to those who appreciate quality and timeless fashion in the same garment.  Most folks cannot afford made-to-order clothing.  OriJeans changes that. You choose the fabric and details and then jeans are tailored to you.  They deliver your “dream jeans”.  Let the denim learn who you are, form to your body, and naturally fade and wear.  Over time, there may be scratches and holes, but you will know there is a story behind how you get them, not a factory-floor machine.  Raw denim reminds us at OriJeans that character comes from living life.  Selvedge denim is about tradition and craftsmanship to the finest detail.  The "self edge" of selvedge denim comes from a continuous-thread weaving method of traditional American denim looms.  These traditional looms were replaced by larger, faster looms during times of soaring mass-market demand for jeans in the 1940’s, but their craftsmanship was left unmatched. You can identify selvedge denim by the distinct seam, typically white and a colored thread, on the outside seam of a pair of cuffed jeans.

Henry A. Davidson (Philadelphia, PA) Create your own line.  Custom jeans allow you to choose the treatment to the denim, pocket styles for front and back pockets, and stitching color and design.  Custom embroider a small personal identifier or a large piece of artwork to truly personalize your creation. Enjoy the most comfortable fit on top of it all.  Henry A. Davidsen Master Tailors & Image Consultants offers the finest in custom tailored clothing, casual wear, accessories and image consulting for professionals.   Their one-on-one consultations provide the ultimate in luxury, they create a wardrobe designed just for you.  They aim to provide you with a collection of perfectly fitting and classically fashionable garments through personalized service unmatched in any traditional retail environment.  They source top quality fabrics and trimmings from around the globe. In today’s value conscious moment, they find that the luxury of custom is in many cases MORE affordable than items off the rack.

Richard James (United Kingdom) Since 1992 Richard James has quickly established a reputation for itself as a leading luxury brand that has set the standard for contemporary tailoring and menswear.  The first of the ‘New Establishment’ tailors on Savile Row, Richard James is proud to have contributed to revitalizing what has long been acknowledged as the world centre for tailoring with its bold, progressive take on the timeless and traditional.  Cut from a personal pattern, pieced together in-house and fitted until the cutter and client deem it perfect, a bespoke Richard James suit is a unique hand-made on Savile Row garment that, while always flattering, will naturally reveal something of the character of its owner.  Richard James is known for the clean, slim lines of its tailoring, but with the bespoke service, the ultimate tailoring experience, the client naturally becomes the focal point of the design process and is never not encouraged to express himself.

Ober.Blünck jeans:  Every pair an ode to handcrafting. Owning a pair of 100% handcrafted jeans from Ober.Blünck makes you one of a very select few in the world.  Each pair of Ober.Blünck jeans start with the very best raw denim, sourced from the world over. It is then cut the distinctive Ober.Blünck way, and given the luxe treatment with premium trims. Every pair a treasured piece painstakingly put together with no less than nine different sewing machines in our constantly growing collection of Vintage jeans making machines from before the 1950s.  Their denim workshop is the one and only existing set up in Singapore where all the exciting construction done by a non-automated jeansmith.

Two Jacks Denim (California) proudly Offer Only U.S.-Made Men’s Clothing and Accessories.  Two Jacks Denim is dedicated to offering top quality American-made clothing and dry goods, and a shopping experience of superior quality to its customers.  Behind every pair of handmade denim jeans is a story about a designer and maker who is passionate about the materials, from denim to rivets to pocket bags, and the workmanship that goes into each stitch.  The reality behind the company name, Oakland’s Jack London, and Jack Kerouac, native of Lowell, Mass., home to many of America’s textile mills during the Industrial Revolution.

Self Edge (New York, California, Oregon) Founded in 2006, by Kiya and Demitra Babzani, Self Edge is the most extensive destination for the world's finest men's denim, shirts and leather accessories, all with a distinct aesthetic and details that are second to none.  With locations in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and Portland, Self Edge offers casual menswear with an emphasis on the absolute best quality regardless of the type of garment or accessory.  In addition, they provide a full range of repair and hemming services which are all done in-house on their own vintage Union Special and Singer darning machines.

Here is one more denim supplier you can take a look at when you have a moment.

Traveller Denim Co. was born through drunken nights in Austin, TX while dreaming of ways to make lives more fulfilling.  The designers were getting tired of disposable America where production was no longer about high quality garments.  They were immersed in the ever-changing creative world of film but they needed more.  They wanted a way to reach people again. Bespoke denim was the answer.  Simple, beautiful and handcrafted in one of the great states of the union.  They use the finest Japanese and Cone Mills selvedge to bring you the best pair of jeans you’ll ever own. The devil is in the details and that’s where Traveller Denim comes in.

We hope you enjoy learning about fashion and more importantly finding the perfect pair of jeans.
