BRAND PROFILE: AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied

Capture.PNG

If you haven’t yet heard of AG Jeans then it’s time to get to know them, and let me tell you once you do you’ll never look back.

The Los Angeles Californian brand got it’s beginning in 2000, a partnership between Adriano Goldschmied and Yul Ku. Adriano known as “The godfather of denim” and Yul a specialist in manufacturing. Between the two of them they’d previously worked for the likes of Diesel, Gap, Lucky Brand, Abercrombie & Fitch and JCrew to name a few. The collaboration just made sense. Goldschmied left his namesake company in 2004 passing his reign of creative director over to Sam Ku (Yul’s son). Sam had worked in the business straight out of college and risen through the ranks, well equipped to take over the role from Goldschmied and still heads the company today.

What they’re known for

AG Jeans have always been about new denim with a vintage aesthetic. As such they’re fabrics are unbelievably soft – minus that stiff feeling you quite often get from denim. Their state of the art finishes include hand-crafted destruction and angled whiskering, in effect making each pair of jeans a unique work of art.

The company has and will always be a start to finish factory, meaning from design through to production everything is done under one roof. Which results in unparalleled quality and a wealth of creative freedom.

Why we love our AG’s

First and foremost they have a fit and wash for everyone. Their popular Stilt style, keeps the skinny jean wearer happy, their Absolute legging is hard to even call a jean they’re that comfortable and their Ex-boyfriend keep us looking effortlessly cool.

AG cares about the environment! In 2009 they began using ozone technology during production, significantly reducing water usage & chemical consumption throughout manufacturing. Let it also be known that AG regularly recycles scrap fabric for other various uses rather than the scraps going to landfill – nice work guys.

I mentioned it earlier and I’m gonna mention it again because I truly believe AG Jeans have some of the best fabrics on the market. 85% of the fabric is produced in Japan and the remainder is from Italy – need I say more? They design fabrics exclusively with the mills and they themselves testify that it’s the fabrics NOT the treatments producing that soft AG feel.

ACxAG – Alexa Chung Collaboration

In Spring 2015 AG launched it’s first collaborative collection with British It-Girl Alexa Chung. The collection was received with overwhelming success – selling out globally. Why does the collaboration work so well? It’s simple really, AG has long been known for it’s vintage influenced styles and Alexa is an avid vintage wearer, not to mention style-guru. We all want to be as cool as Alexa ergo we all want to buy her clothes.

Over the past few seasons AG has continued to focus on their outwear and the results have been top-notch, each season topping the last. For the latest Spring Alexa Campaign be sure to watch the video below – trust me it’s worth it just for the lols.

Keep up the good vibes AG.

BRAND PROFILE: Levi’s

news_levis_wedgie_1

When you think Jeans what’s the first brand that comes to mind? I’d be shocked if you said anything other than Levi’s, and since they invented the first ever jean in 1853 it’s no surprise why.

Levi’s began under the name of ‘Levi Strauss’based in San Francisco, USA. Their first style the ‘XX’ (for men) was the first ever riveted jean, developed for the everyday workmen who demanded strength and durability in his jeans. In 1890 the ‘XX’ is renamed the ‘501’ (Five Oh One). Fast forward to the twenty first century, and women and men are still wearing the iconic style.

With the current resurgence of 90’s style the 501 jean has well and truly made it’s way back into fashion, vintage stores struggling to keep up with buyers demand.

E-commerce store Re/Done has generated a cult following promoting sustainable denim fashion. The store offers vintage Levi’s altered to current season fits & styles. The brand itself is a huge promoter of Levi’s fast history, advocating that each pair of jeans sold on their site comes with it’s own history unique from every other pair sold before it. As a purchasee you’ll create new life for the pair.

So the question remains why do we love Levi’s so much? The answer is simple, quality never goes out of style. Being the inventors of jeans and consistently evolving the style early on makes Levi’s our go-to brand for jeans time and time again. Shawn Parr, head of US consultancy firm Bulldog Drummond says it best, “Levi’s is like the Rolling Stones or Johnny Cash. They’re one of the all-time greats who defy and define the category, and without them, the genre wouldn’t be the same.” Keep doin what you’re doin Levi’s and we’ll be wearing red-tabbed behinds for another hundred years.
