Black on Black Denim Now Available at Red Cotton Denim
My buddy Camillo Love now has black jeans for sale on his website. The jeans are made out of a nice 12 oz. black Cone Mills denim with a plain white selvedge and feature black stitching throughout. A bit more chic than plain indigo denim, these black jeans are great for wearing a bit more dressed up for a night on the town. They’re also ideal to pair with a white or heather grey t-shirt and some canvas sneakers for a classic American look.
If you don’t know the story behind Red Cotton Denim yet, check out this profile I wrote on Camillo a little while back. The short version is this: unlike many new Made in the USA denim companies that seem to pop up every few weeks, Red Cotton Denim is a labor of love a long time in the making. Camillo hand makes each pair of jeans from the design and grading of the pattern through sewing every seam and stitch. He even hand brands each leather patch that comes on a pair of Red Cotton Denim jeans.
He’s got no venture capital behind him, his business isn’t a ‘disruptive’ marketing act that just sells jeans incidentally…He’s simply a guy who has a serious passion for making jeans, and I think that passion really shows in these new black jeans. His craft keeps getting better and better, and if you like to buy Made in the USA products as a way to honor honest American labor and not because you’ve fallen for a marketing gimmick, then I think you can’t do much better than supporting one-man-brand Red Cotton Denim.
Red Cotton looks like really nice stuff, I just need to be in better shape first. And be richer, but.
