The denim inclined are almost inevitably acquainted with Jean Shop. For those who are not, JS is a New York brand trading in top-notch Japanese selvage denim as masterfully crafted by US jean-sperts. They also traffic in leather goods and a few other odds-and-ends, but let’s keep it twilly, shall we? Their catalog of only 3 mens’ styles may seem constricting at first glance, but rest assured, is remedied by a variety of fabrics, washes, and custom options. We like ‘em raw. Naturally, all styles come with Jean Shop’s signature orange selvedge lines, pocket-linings and zipper-fabrics. Inevitable (and adorable) are the mini-pigs pressed into the back of each rivet as an homage to the brand’s first outpost in NY’s meatpacking district. Above: a pair we’ve been wearing on-and-off for about a year. Black x, skinny fit. Note fades in progress. Get them here.
