Based out of New York since 2003, 3sixteen is a men and women’s denim brand dedicated to selling you the finest denim you can get your hands on. Andrew Chen and Johan Lam are the masterminds behind the 3sixteen name, and their dream was to provide the world with well-constructed denim products made with raw denim straight out of Japan (because everything awesome happens there, of course). But don’t you worry, the actual denim is constructed in the good ‘ol United States, because you know we love 'Made in the USA’ here at E. Smith Mercantile.
Take a look at some photos of the mill where the 3sixteen magic happens. Brought to you by their very own lookbook, shot by photographer Minnow Park. Enjoy!
“You don’t have to dress a certain way or be a certain type of person to incorporate 3sixteen into your wardrobe,” says co-founder Johan. “At the core, each of our customers value the thought put into our garments, from the fabric to the fit.”
Andrew and Johan have made it clear that they’re in the apparel industry for a reason. “We want to make sure that we’re not just making clothes to make clothes, but that we are somehow furthering the conversation.”
