Red Cloud & Co. jeans

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone on superfuture!!

I would like to introduce a pair of reproduction standard jeans from China.

Red Cloud & Co. R423xx

This is made by a jeansmith located in the city of Shenyang, China.

It's 100% Chinese long-staple cotton selvage denim, with the last dip of the dyeing process using natural indigo. The findings and threads are from Japan, because the Chinese ones couldn't satisfy his standard of quality.

Check out how thick the selvage is!!!

those are pretty impressive, good stuff. any relations to the brand Hsin?

I met this guy through a Chinese jeans forum party at Shanghai. He just started his brand officially in 2010.

This is a 47's cut. The weight of the denim is about 14oz.

What is the point of yet another '47 cut?

its not about the cut... its about passion for repro and wanting to create your own. Since there is not much coming out of mainland china (as far as im aware) its great to see a startup in that area. A cut is just a cut

Where do they sell this brand in Shanghai?

I'm not sure whether he is doing retail in Shanghai. He is busy starting to open a retail store in Shenyang right now.

I just introduced the brand to AB Fits in San Francisco.

this brand has been around since 2006 ive read about this guy way way back he has some great craftsmanship but the main question there will always be the price and using chinese cotton. but ive yet to see a faded pair to judge.

Here are some faded pictures. But from a different model he made.

He improved the quality a lot since this one.
