Since its founding in 2000, AG Jeans has emerged as one of the apparel industry’s premier purveyors of sustainable denim. Because, with each new addition to its lineup, the Los Angeles-based outfit focuses on maximizing its product quality whilst simultaneously minimizing its environmental impact. That being said, its latest capsule collection looks to be its most eco-conscious effort yet.

It’s called the ‘The Jean Of Tomorrow,’ and it comprises a jacket (the Sid) and a pair of pants (the Tellis) that are made to be 100% biodegradable by design. In practice, this means that the collection uses a combination of organic cotton and hemp for the fabric, water-reducing Distilled Indigo dye for the color, and energy-efficient lasers for the finish. What’s more, each piece eschews traditional thread and metal fasteners in favor of TENCEL yarn, stitched rivets, and corozo nut-sourced buttons. Add to that soy-based screen-printed care labels as well as wildflower seed paper hangtags, and the result is a line of blue jeans that’s about as green as it gets. It’s available now starting at $210.

Purchase: $210+
