Thru word of mouth and research online as a selvedge denim fan, AW came up. These Brad Ripes specially stood out because of the sky blue warp with a beige toned weft which is uncommon. They surely replaced an old pair of a less premium jean I had with a similar dirty light blue look. As these have intentionally pre-worn qualities (hence Ripe), they are immediately soft and comfortable even being 100% organic Japanese cotton without synthetic stretch material added. Also constructed in the USA. The cut is killer with the athetlic fit. Roomier at the top and tapered at the bottom, it has that right blend of comfort and modern style. It’s refreshing to see the art of selvedge denim kept alive at the same time. The jean length choices are a plus as I don’t like having just one choice and having to hem them. Andre Williams himself was very personable and helpful. He sent my shipment quickly with pre-paid return shipping materials and professional packaging, though there was no need to send anything back haha. A pleasure to do business with.
