3Sixteen - Classic Denim Updated 3sixteen_1.jpg

3Sixteen is a menswear line from NYC that aims to create clothing that demonstrates “longevity in both design and construction”. They started producing jeans in 2008 and use high quality heavy 14oz denim sourced in either Japan or from Cone Mills, USA. What appeals to me about this brand is their simple, non-nonsense approach – they take the best quality raw materials, keep branding and embroidery minimal, resulting in unpretentious, classic looking contemporary denim. Their jeans come in two styles – slim-straight and skinny and are available at their own store in NYC’s Lower East Side, Blackbird in Washington, American Rag in Los Angeles or online.
