Most cotton clothing is GENETICALLY MODIFIED... ****The Official List of GM-Free Cotton Clothing**** - Page 17

Breaking news: Iron heart recently introduced new organic cotton jeans under their Triple Works label Advertized as “grown from non genetically modified plants”, they state that it “promotes and enhances biodiversity and biological cycles”

Jeans + picture from Ironheart website: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/triple-works/tw-634n.html

These are fine jeans to be sure….

Keep in mind that all Iron Heart products are GMO-free; it’s interesting that they are advertizing that fact now…

I'd love to get a pair of those organic ironhearts, but why did they have to put such a retarded looking stitching on the back pocket? And the red vertical "W" to top it off?! Organic jeans don't need any gimmicks and I have no interest in buying them now.




Here's another company don't know if you listed it already but all they make are tight skinny jeans:




I need some regular, classic, straight, or relaxed fits without gimmicks. Shouldn't be so damn hard to find, but it is.

Now look at these Old Blue Denim Organics:



Seriously, WTF is this stitching? No wonder most organic jean companies go out of business. :violin:


Nudie's stitching may be the worst too. :bored:

And here we have Kuyichi organics with a couple thorns sticking up each ass cheek:

You can remove the stitching pretty easily with a seam ripper.

hmm.. without compromising the denim or leaving a ghost impression?


The ironheart jeans look the best to me but that red "W" looks densely stitched multiple times.

post #247 of 258
Haven't done it myself, but loads of people on here/Superfuture/etc remove pocket stitching as a regular thing. But yeah, you probably couldn't take out the red "W".
post #248 of 258

Yeah, at $300 for the pair they're about $75 overpriced anyways and that's without defaced pockets. I didn't even know Ironheart was a member here, much less a devoted thread till today. No disrespect if reading this but somebody's gotta tell it like it is.

I previously said that I thought Iron Heart uses Supima (US pima) cotton because it was pretty much the only American long staple variety to use, but it turns out they don’t…  It’s actually a super rare American variety virtually unknown to commercial cotton growers and, of course, it’s of unbelievably excellent quality.

Here’s a visual:

Iron Heart seems to be very protective of this kind of information; the name is not available to me. It appears to be a secret… Iron heart denim is simply unbelievable though. Really next level stuff.

N&F told me they don't know about GM cotton in their products and they haven't gotten back with me since then.

However, N&F has an Organic line, Suvin line, Supima line, and an ELS line(soft raw/ heavy soft).

I bet they either use no GM cotton or very little, due the quality of their cotton clothing.


"To our Knowledge, the mills we buy from in Japan, Italy and the US do not use GM cotton (Gustin)."

In other words they don't know... but they do use some organics..

I bet they use little, due the quality of their cotton clothing. However, Cone denims (other than the cone Pima fire) are made from GMO upland cotton.


Has an organic line

When asked about Levis policy on GM-cotton, they responded with:

"We sincerely appreciate your interest. Due to the volume of requests for information we receive, we aren’t able to provide detailed answers to specific questions about our company(Levi Strauss & Co)."

According to rawdenim.com APC and Nudie use Turkish cotton:

"A.P.C and Nudie source most of the denim used in their jeans from Turkish milled cotton(rawrdenim.com)."



Note: There are many others

and the short fibered color-grown cotton.




Let’s talk GMO cotton:


-BT Cotton (is modified to become a living pesticide---BT)


-Herbicide Tolerant Cotton was originally made by taking living bacteria (a surprising find) from a roundup contaminated waste pond in Louisiana and inserting a gene from this bacteria into a plant. (Just look up 2,4-D and Roundup)


Fun science/history fact: The popular herbicide 2,4-D, that is now used on some “herbicide Resistant” GMOs, was the primary component in the controversial Agent Orange defoliant used in the Vietnam conflict, don’t take my word... just look up “2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid


-Chinese Xinjiang (only currently known long-staple GMO variety of cotton) Trait not yet known and information is not currently available. But there is some speculation and hearsay, see previous posts...

Hear is a resource for Genetically Modified Chinese Xinjiang cotton clothing.



Here are some Genetically Modified Chinese Xinjiang cotton shirts:


Cone denim: Uses GMO Upland cotton for most of there denims, though they say they will make denim using other varieties if requested. Woven In USA


Here is a complete list of GMO cotton varieties as supplied by a biotech promotional organization, the ISAAA:

From hear: http://www.isaaa.org/gmapprovaldatabase/crop/default.asp?CropID=7&Crop=Cotton


Hybrids: put simply, cotton hybridization is a cotton plant on another cotton plant. Hybridization and selective breeding are the best currently known methods to improve quality in cotton. As of yet, genetically modification dose not improve cotton quality or fiber length, It merely results in more toxins; this is why mostly all quality ELS (long staple) cottons are hybrids and not genetically modified. But this may change...

What's toxic about genetically modified cotton?
