Iu Franquesa of Companion Denim makes some of the most beautiful jeans in the market. Take one look at the inside – not the outside – of a pair of his jeans and you’ll see what we mean. Whether by single-needle hand felling, seam tape, or binding, Franquesa meticulously ensures that no seam is left exposed. All of that on top of hand hammered copper rivets with leather backings, twill lined waistbands, and a dozen other details, they’re as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Maybe even more so.
This time around he’s offering his Jan fit jean, a buckle back five pocket, in two offbeat fabrics. The first is a 14 oz. Italian ecru bull denim while the other is a lightweight 12 oz. Japanese 70’s style light blue denim.
With all the work that goes into making these almost-too-pretty-to-wear jeans, they’ll run you over $400 USD.
