Originally designed as a piece of utilitarian workwear for gold-digging prospectors, denim jeans have since become a staple element of mainstream fashion — to the point that more manufacturers than not have an offering of their own. As such, finding a pair for yourself can prove quite the tall order, especially once you take things into account like fabric, wash, and stretch.
But with the launch of his all-new ‘Denim Shop’ collection, Todd Snyder wants to make painful jean buying processes a thing of the past. That’s because the collection spans three different tiers — including ‘Stretch,’ ‘Selvedge,’ and ‘Small Batch’ — ensuring that there’s a pair perfect for every kind of denim devotee. For instance, the Stretch jeans are made with 12.5oz denim and just a bit of elastane fabric, meaning they’re incredibly comfortable right from day one. The Selvedge line, on the other hand, is made from 100% cotton and features a number of classic details, such as oxidized rivets, chain-stitched embroidery, and a locker loop — an excellent middle-of-the-road option. And when it comes to the Small Batch silhouettes, Todd Snyder has used denim sourced from the legendary White Oak mill in Greensboro and woven on old-shuttle looms. They’re available now starting at $158.
