Also one thing that is cool about Raleigh denim is the fact that almost everything is made in NC. That makes me want to buy a pair by itself... Then again I'm from NC. I'm sure not many others would have the same outlook on them.
Everything we use is from North Carolina"”the thread, the denim, the zippers, the labels. We do everything in the studio"”sewing, washing.
I liked this as well:
V: We took on a lot at first. We don't outsource anything.
V: Okay, we outsource to Raleigh, North Carolina; we outsource to Capital Boulevard.
I'll post how they are if I ever get around to buying a pair. The fit isn't what I usually wear (I like tapered leg), plus I have a ton of other jeans stockpiled already, but I really do plan to get a pair at some point, if for nothing else just to support a local, quality denim company.
And FWIW, their pockets are the shit.
