My name is Chris, and I'm an English teacher from California based in Shenzhen, China. I any free time I have to write about men's clothing.

Red Cloud & Co is a raw denim brand from Shenyang, China. They are breaking the stigma of "Made in China" by crafting jeans the old-fashioned way, from indigo dyeing to the finishing chain stitches. I recently had the opportunity to visit Red Cloud's flagship location in Shenyang to buy my first pair of raw denim, as well as tour their collection. In addition, the company's founder, Raymon, was available to speak with me about the story of his brand, as well as the little details he loves about his jeans. My wife was able to translate between us, so I hope my articles offer insight into the man and his company.

I hope you enjoy,
Chris

Also, I've noticed people asking about the characters on the jeans' patch and what it translates to. I can ask the Missus in the morning to help lay it out here for you guys.

EDIT: I've posted the translation of the label online. As you can imagine, it's quite a mouthful.

I've wondered about that patch several times. I'll be interested to see what you find out.

Interesting. I have about three pairs and am quite happy with them.
