Hartford Denim CompanyPosted: June 21, 2011
The boys behind the Hartford company are all born and raised. They have been great friends since high school in West Hartford. One of them also happens to be my cousin Luke. During the summer of 2010, driven by a passion for craftsmanship, quality construction married with artistic vision, and denim produced in the US of A, they sewed their first pair of jeans. In under a year, they have outfitted a beautiful workroom/showroom in downtown Hartford bringing an influx of young entrapranurial energy to the weathered ex-insurance capital of the world. These jeans are hand-made to custom measurements with the finest materials. I am pretty sure they will even let clients be involved in the design process: picking your style, your fabric, and adding your extras like iPhone holsters or whatever else your will ease your daily life a smidge . They will also repair them for life. For free. Oh and they have a fleet of tricycles they cruise around Hartford on. Meet the gents here here and here. Needless to say I am very proud of what my cousin has created. Congrats Luke. Now everyone else, go buy a pair.
