...
"Under the direction of Ku, the AG team has maintained its commitment to "made in the U.S.A" label, and is dedicated to the continued development of the brand with the upmost attention to detail and quality. The only vertical denim production facility in the US: Vertical means that from design to shipping; AG handles every step of an AG jean production in one location, ensuring superior attention to detail, unparalleled consistency, and the highest quality product available". -AG Jeans. Right from downtown Los Angeles in their 450,000K square foot Denim Haven.
It takes 11 pattern pieces to make a classic 5- pocket. Postscript... the rear pockets are size graded so they are in the correct proportion to your body size vs. toosh dimensions. It takes approx 16 hours just for a single pair of jeans to go through (aging) the dry process; patented by Ku in19 countries. This now, family business recycles and reuses every left over scrap of denim to non-slip stair protectors to their uber-cool SWAG. There are 1800 employees constructing and creating your jeans. It takes 11 pattern pieces to make a classic 5- pocket. Each pair are baked for 40 minutes at 120 degrees, hand sanded and abraded on inflatable forms that are shaped and able to be manipulate in the sitting position by the sander; they are then baked again. Koos Manufacturing only has 100 of these machines; they are each able to process 16 pairs of jeans at a time. Ku is passionate about his denim, he doesn't like it touched, folded, or squished. When the denim arrives on the mass roll he rolls it out on a table that could be compared to a football field in length and there he lets the denim "sleep" for 24 hours. AG Jeans uses a Gerber spreading machine to ensure that the denim is never pulled and the integrity of the weave is maintained. Seventy-eight sets of hands touch every jean that leaves their haven because every aspect is done with so much love.
Mr. Ku started at Sears purchasing 12 Maytag Washing machines and begun experimenting with denim washing and techniques.
...
This pair of jeans was the inspiration for the "Picasso" wash that Mr. Ku named a replicated process using one of his 22 new laser machines.
...
Frankly; I am in love with AG Jeans and by learning more about Mr. Ku and how his passion has shaped his life and redefined the opportunities and responsibilities in the denim industry…I SUPPORT!
