This season, the ever-innovative Jeff Shafer of Agave Denim is bringing the men’s denim line to a new level. Their men’s jeans feature novelty selvage trimmings, a unique silhouette with an emphasis on flawless fit and an underlying theme of “respecting the textiles themselves”. Our favorites? One is the Harp—a slouchy tapered leg jean in 12oz Italian denim with a herringbone texture, reminiscent of the texture found on mens industrial workwear. Everything is thought of, down to the hand-stamped English brittle leather patch.
Our second pick, the Rocker classic tapered leg in Japanese true indigo .10 oz denim. They feature a tailored look that translates well from casual wear to a more formal environment (if you’re the kind of dude who gets to wear jeans to work).
Finally, the Maverick slim cut straight leg jean is made on an Old Glory Red, White & Blue cone mill white oak shuttle loom, featuring patriotic selvage to boot. This textile is also known as Heritage vintage denim. It’s all made in America (LA, specifically), and we think it’s safe to say these pieces are setting a new standard for the men’s denim industry.
