The Sponsor Spotlight – February 2015

We’ve been up and running for a little under four years now, and over this time have helped millions of people both learn more about raw denim and make smarter purchases. Most of the time we receive all of the credit, but in reality we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the support of our sponsors.

With this in mind, we’re kicking off a new monthly series, the Sponsor Spotlight, that sheds light on the latest news about brands, companies, and people that help us make it happen. The next time you’re purchasing any type of clothing or just looking into a new brand, we hope you’ll keep these fine folks in mind.

Okayama Denim


Available in March 2015, the Momotaro Workshirt will be exclusive to Okayama Denim.

2015 is shaping up to a busy year for Japanese denim specialists, Okayama Denim. Fresh off a website design overhaul, they’ll soon be unveiling an exclusive, limited edition Momotaro Workshirt riddled with all the right details: triple chain stitched seams, garment-dyed fabric with natural indigo, and soft wooden buttons.

They also have other projects in the works such as a custom denim fabric produced with Japan Blue JeansFull Count collaboration, and another Momotaro shirt but with sashiko stitching.

Williamsburg Garment Company

Williamsburg Garment Company

Brooklyn-based denim brand, Williamsburg Garment Company, have been quietly developing offerings for an underserved segment of denim customers – women, and big and tall men – and plan to launch a crowd-fund campaign to fuel some of the production. They’ll have their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection on display at the Capsule Show next week in Las Vegas. Expect to see a few new fabrics in existing fits from them too:

Railcar Fine Goods


Railcar Fine Goods’ Supreme Hold Pomade
