For those of you who haven’t been familiar with our love for RPMWEST, we thought we would do a follow up post to better educate and provide some additional information behind the company itself. RPMWEST is an American based denim brand who bring an interesting concept to their consumers - exploited workers build cheap jeans with cheap materials, while artisan, selvedge denim often costs more than $200. And neither retail nor online stores offer an ideal purchasing experience; online stores have a leg up in convenience, but only if you order the right size the first time. RPMWEST decided it was time for a change, they are selling American made, meticulously constructed selvedge denim for under $100.
RPMWEST launched their Specialty Japanese Selvedge line on their kickstarter so time ago. Their Speciality denim is cut and sewn in California using made in USA copper rivets & button fly, tucked belt loops & clean chain stitched waistband. Reinforced back pocket & genuine leather patch also made in the USA.
