Handmade one at a time in the heart of NYC and crafted from exclusive Japanese selvedge that's woven on old-school narrow looms (it doesn't get much more authentic than that). Jean Shop proprietor (and denim industry vet) Eric Goldstein opened his Manhattan boutique in 2003, offering a small but obsessed-over selection of hand-sewn and washed-to-order jeans and shirts made right in his shop. Cotton with a hint of stretch. Belt loops. Zip fly. Traditional 5-pocket styling. USA. Machine wash. Available in select stores.
