LA guy i had to absorb your post......woah lol their was alot of information i needed and wanted in that one i would like to know if the companies you mentioned have websites and or online stores through which i can reach them if you or anyone else here can provide me with references i.e.(contacts, numbers, email addresses, websites, etc...) it would be much appreciated the reason i want acess to japanese denim is because like i said i want access to the best product so i am able to produce the best product and compete respectably i've heard things about the garment district NYC but after reading your post im almost convince its crap and if i go down their i will be waisting my time i doubt their any respectable or well known denim mills their who can produce quality product

well the alternative would be do like ande whall on the other sf and make individual pieces by hand on request as a beginning--it's been awhile and he's definitely built up some interest amongst the members. a modest but good start.

speaking of visionaries, i think one of the most interesting new jeans startups has to be iron army.

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.


^^How would i reach the people you mentioned above
