I was impressed with the early washes and cuts Paper Denim put out Not so much these days. These days, it puts out mediocre jeans, at best. On the other hand, Earnest Sewn is still doing a good job (although I wish that they would use heavier denim, but that's just me.)
AG washes,cuts, and details have just never impressed me. The uninspired backpocket design is, for me, symbolic of the general lack of imagination I see in that line. And Adriano Goldschmidt's newer Goldsign line is no better, I feel. On the other hand, although not really among my favorites, Diesel keeps coming out with good product.
