NAEM DENIM / EDISON SELVAGE STRAIGHT
In 2009, LA-natives Kevin Na and Mike Park launched NAEM, an unassuming premium denim label that quietly produces some of the most impressive jeans we have come across. NAEM’s approach is entirely focused on quality - the finest denim stock, incredible craftsmanship, and obsessive attention to detail.
The company’s production process - design, cutting, sewing and washing - all takes place in Los Angeles within just a few miles of its warehouse in Vernon. This not only helps support domestic manufacturing, it also allows the label to maintain tight control over quality.
Our favorite from NAEM Denim is the Edison, a selvage jean with a classic straight leg fit. The inseam on these jeans is long, so you can wear them cuffed or get them fitted. We were blown away by how comfortable and soft these jeans are. Even when they’re brand new, they feel like a favorite pair you’ve had for years. Here’s a closer look.
