What ever happened to PaperDenim&Cloth?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I tried searching but couldn't really find a firm answer.

I was just curious, what ever happened to PaperDenim&Cloth? They used to be everywhere. Now, it seems like stores are just waiting for their stock to run out. I own a pair of PD&C and they were, and probably still, one of the softest and most comfortable pair of jeans without breaking it in.

Can anybody shed some info?

They used to decently made until they decided to lower their price point several years ago and with it, their quality.

the got bought out by federated after scott left to do ES. They started buying lower quailty denim and started manufactoring off shore. the rest is history.

That really sucks. When did this happen? Last year or a while ago? So the ones that can be found now at stores are all lower quality compared to a couple of years ago?

No wonder they are never mentioned when talking about raw or selvedge jeans.

Years ago, it's all shit, and they were mostly a 7fam company so no raw/selvage stuff ever to my knowledge.

^^^ Yeah but I figured they would be in the mix of things if they were still making good quality jeans. As a company though, are they pretty much done? As in their not making any new products? or are they still around but their jeans eventually end up at Marshall's or Ross?

I think they are still around and making jeans. I'm not sure though. I have a pair of chinos from PD&C that are really old but tough as hell.

At some point after they got bought out I'm pretty sure they announced that the $100-$200 market for flashy jeans was full and I believe they ended up making even cheaper jeans after that and migrated down the mall department store totem pole. I might be remembering totally wrong so listen to the guys who sell denim for a living instead!
