in 1873, denim was introduced to the world and forever changed the fashion industry. now the world’s most popular fabric, a premium denim jean is a crucial building block for any wardrobe. because of denim’s unique indigo dyeing process, the lifetime wear of denim is the true indicator of the quality of fabric, construction and fit. rafael soto artisan denim is made to be worn in to perfection, without ever compromising on quality or appearance.
our limited edition, cone, white oak denim is sourced from the oldest fabric mill in america, established in 1891. one percent stretch is added to the fabric, providing a functional, contemporary twist on a timeless textile. our denim is neither washed or treated; we simply rinse to remove the starch and leave the rest up to you. with italian cowhide leather details and back patch, a button fly, german engineered zinc alloy rivets and shank buttons, no expense is spared on our standard for quality.
construction is elemental to any premium denim piece. our jeans were designed with your needs in mind; front pockets are bias taped, to provide reinforcement where you need it most, each belt loop is five fold for enhanced support and our signature wing tip jean back pocket is stitched with a blunt bottom edge to meld authentic jean detail and contemporary design. our split and pressed side seams and printed interior pockets, with all sizing and garment care information, are detailsthat are reminiscent of current sportswear; whereas the traditional chain stitch jean hem evokes some of denim’s more nostalgic jean characteristics.
