It was the year 2000 and I was on a mission to find a pair of jeans. After trying on what seemed like an eternity of high-end jeans at Henry Lehr, I finally found a pair that I truly felt was the one. They were Paper Denim & Cloth jeans and at a hefty price, at that time, a little shy of $200, I made the purchase and never looked back.
Paper Denim & Cloth were classic blue jeans, free of all the silly bling. They elongated my legs, enhanced my butt, had just enough stretch making them ultra comfortable. And, I eventually got married in them! Love was always in the air when I wore those PD&C jeans.
Now let’s fast forward to the present. Chris Gilbert, ex co-founder of Paper Denim & Cloth, after sailing through some rough waters after the success of Paper Denim & Cloth, is getting back in the game by launching his new denim label, Resin, in September. With a back to basics ideology and a promise to deliver well designed, high-quality denim at a price point of no more than $150, I am at the edge of my seat excited to try on my first pair of Resin jeans. Stay tuned folks for more information on stores to carry Resin!
