This week’s Designer Q & A is with Ben Taverniti, Designer of Hudson Jeans.

1) Why do you think after 200 years jeans are still one of the most popular items of clothing?
Jeans are alive .. the fabric is alive .. each pair is unique to itself and tell a story. Every tear, abrasion, fade, stress mark means something and defines the personality of the jean.

Plus, denim is universal and timeless. It’s everywhere and anytime. And, no matter what your style is, everyone is denim appropriate. It connects us all.

2) Last time I counted there were over 50 brands of premium denim jeans, what makes your jeans stand out from the rest?
Fit, Fabric, Wash, Period. We have always stuck to creating a flattering fit, using the best fabrics and innovative washes. We are loyal to our style and will never follow trends in our designs. We keep things clean and classic and focus on creating a truly premium jean.

3) Who do you imagine is a typical customer?
Chic, fashionable, confident, and never trendy. Hudson is classic, and that is our customer.
