We may be well past peak “one man brand,” but the true artisans of the denim world soldier on. One of the best is Iu Franquesa of Companion Denim, who has been producing some of the highest quality jeans in the world out of his studio in Barcelona.
Over the past four years, Iu has perfected his jeans through three fits (Slimmer Hug, Joel Slim, and Taper Jan) and a variety of signature details including a single piece fly, rolled belt loops, and many other accoutrements that would please a discerning denimhead.
The most recent release features all three fits in a 14oz. brown selvedge denim, and it’s up now for a special pre-order price that’s a hundred Euros off typical retail.
