The guys at Rawr Denim posted a review of our 12.5 oz indigo jeans today: http://www.rawrdenim.com/2012/09/review-united-stock-dry-goods-narrow-fit/

...there are a few brands that are ubiquitous with the term “entry-level raw denim.” A.P.C., Nudies, Unbranded and Naked & Famous tend to be the major names in discussions of sub-$200 selvedge denim. Luckily, that category has a new contender - United Stock Dry Goods.

United Stock gave us the chance to sample a pair of the Canadian brand’s Narrow Fit from their upcoming fall line, and other brands have reason to worry. Featuring 12.5 oz. Japanese redline selvedge denim, construction in the U.S. of A., and a price tag of $135, United Stock Dry Goods is one of the biggest bangs for your buck in raw jeans today.

Out of curiosity, what Japanese mill do you use to source your denim? Kaihara, Kurabo, Nihon...? Not that it makes a huge difference, but I was just wondering.

We would rather not disclose the specific mill we source our 12.5 oz selvedge denim from. We're a very young company just gaining traction in the market, so anything that may compromise any competitive advantage we have is a risk we can't yet afford to take. I really hope you understand. What I can tell you though, is that this denim is custom made for United in a Japanese facility that we're proud to say is on the forefront of environmental standards, often far exceeding the regulations in Japan. Their uses of natural cotton and indigo dyeing minimize impact on air and water quality, and their effluent treatment technologies are state of the art.

We source our other selvedge denims from similarly-regarded mills who also supply other collections like Samurai, Pure Blue Japan, Oni, and Sugar Cane.

I totally understand your concern. Thanks for addressing my question, I just wanted to know how I might be able to compare the quality of denim with some of the companies you mentioned. It certainly looks like the perfect denim brand for anyone looking for a leg-up from APC or Nudies... and at a cheaper price point.

I'm interested in seeing some evo pics as this thread develops.

One of the primary differentiators of our collection, and of the 12.5 oz selvedge denim in particular, is its price point. Sydney's years of experience as a bespoke tailor have gone into the development of the fits; we offer quality Japanese selvedge denims and fabrics, domestic construction (everything in the collection is made in the US or Canada), and details such as chain stitching on the denim...but all at an aggressive price point. While a market certainly exists for denim made from Zimbabwe long cotton with natural indigo rope dyeing techniques, our strategy is to continue to offer an exceptionally high quality garment that is accessible to the average consumer. That said, we do plan to grow our collection to include more speciality one-off pieces in the future.

I own (and love) PBJs, KMWs, and Sugarcanes...they're all amazing jeans, use great denim, and the workmanship is top notch. But you also pay a premium price for a premium product. Our market is in the $150-$225 range, and I would put United against any other brand in that segment without a moment's hesitation.

I grabbed one as soon as we got stock. So did a few others. The fabric is insanely nice and comfortable (a little warm for right now, but will be perfect in the fall).

This shirt is ridiculously nice in person.

Yeah, the photos don't really do it (or any of the other double-face fabrics) justice.

And not to be a tease, but our FW13 collection is coming together and looks absolutely killer.

This shirt looks like it is one of those items that is better in person. Pumped on the Flannel Shirt in Steel, too.

Does anybody know where I could get measurements?

post #71 of 255

I'd like to see the belt loops sewn into the waistband, back pockets riveted and a patch that suggests higher quality and durability in future iterations of your selvedge denim jeans.

While all good suggestions, those are the kinds of details that push up production and material costs. Our primary goal for our core denim is to maintain an aggressive price point.
