Much like apple pie, it doesn’t get much more American than a great pair of blue jeans. After all, this is the land where denim was born. And more than 140 years after Levi Strauss patented his signature riveted workwear, American denim is still going strong.
Stronger than ever, you might even say! Because while some brands pay homage to the classics with traditional cuts (and we’re not just talking traditional womenswear) and reconstructed vintage denim, others are reinventing the wheel with fringe, interesting hems, and innovative washes. With some of today’s hottest jeans designed, crafted, and sewn out of Los Angeles, New York City, and even Missouri, these essential brands will put you firmly on team USA.
