I am stoked to let you in on our newest & greatest addition to GDC – our Denim Bar. We’ve spent about a year researching, scouring and meeting with people we know & love in the denim world and have picked the initial four brands to launch our Denim Bar. We could not be more proud and excited to let you, our own GDC fans, in on it.
James Jeans is based out of Los Angeles, where production takes place. It is the only denim line to be solely designed and constructed by hand. Seun, being the first female to successfully launch a contemporary denim line in the US, has accomplished the yin and yang of perfect fit and ultra-appealing look.
The James Jeans muse is every woman looking for an amazing pair of jeans that exceeds her denim expectations. Seun and the design team find inspiration in a multitude of art, iconic fashion, and the tangible experience of working with new fabrics.
James Jeans customers include innumerable celebrities. A current selection: Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Demi Moore, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Minka Kelly, Nikki Hilton, Rachel Bilson
THVM, stands for This Here Very Moment. It is a collective of creative minded people dedicated to designing and producing quality premium denim at an affordable price. The brand’s aesthetic aim is to create sophisticated and refined designs, while being accessible to a wide audience. Simplicity is the core of the basics collection, allowing an individual to express their style and personality without the interference of over embellishment.
Based in Los Angeles, CA, THVM hosts events that showcase local artists and performers and opens it’s studios to the public on a regular basis. The interaction with diverse creative minds feeds the design of the collection, resulting in fresh and progressive styles originating from exploration. The washes may derive from the subtle grain of a photograph or the finish of a sculptural installation. The cuts may be inspired by the angular crescendo of a musical score and the movement from an accompanied dance. MADE IN USA
CHIP FOSTER prides his jeans on having exquisite construction and execution, which means clean lines and a beautiful “skeleton”. To see the premium detail in the tailoring of each pair, you have to turn them inside-out. In fact, the brand is proud enough of their attention to quality that they encourage customers to turn them inside-out and inspect!
You may recognize Chip Foster—he’s the creative director at large at Chip and Pepper denim jeans. “This is my new baby, my new line invitation only for the best selected stores that I love. There was no need to create another line… it was not needed but wanted.”
GDC is excited to have some of the FIRST Chip Foster California collection in our Denim Bar.
OCJ Apparel has combined the irresistible quality of Los Angeles designer jeans with fashionable adaptations of University pride, bringing you the first-ever line of premium collegiate denim. The line is fashionable enough to wear on all occasions, not just during the game.
OCJ manufactures all of its products in the denim capital of the world: Los Angeles, CA, while still headquartered in Ft Worth, Texas, where football is like a second language.
In staying with the GDC tradition of always showcasing what’s new & next, we’re proud to have the new “Slate” collection from OCJ, bringing their high quality from their traditional collegiate line with perfect fit and material to a clean “slate” pair, sans any logo.
