Um, there may be perfectly good jeans manufacturers in NYC. I know that there are plenty of decent wash houses in LA. These are different from the mills, however, which provide the raw material. You may choose to go to a reputable manufacturer (again, ringring and others will be more help to you than I would be), and they would make jeans for you according to your specifications, including trims, finishes, etc... Um, are you sure you want to jump into this? The premium denim market is oversaturated and cut throat these days, and unless you have a unique vision (and there are not too many visionaries around), you are going to sink, fast. Rye GB (a member of this forum), I believe, designs jeans, and has done so for a number of companies that have had varying degrees of success. You may want to ask him for some rudimentary advice before jumping into the shark tank.
