DSTLD Denim Jacket

A jet black denim jacket is a striking departure from the usual classic indigo offerings. Our heavy, durable 12.4 oz. black denim fabric has been thoughtfully washed to reflect light wear and to retain its ability to fade over time. This style is designed in a slim fit and featured classic details: side slit pockets and metal button closures at the chest pockets, cuffs, and side tabs. Pairs with all types of jeans to add a seasoned rock ’n roll vibe. Do stylish, high-quality garments require a luxury price tag? For DSTLD co-founders Corey Epstein and Mark Lynn, the answer is a resounding no. Epstein and Lynn have always valued a top-quality product and customer experience over the name on the label of their clothes. But for two guys living in Los Angeles, the denim capital of the world, they found it impossible to find well-made jeans and go-to essentials without the premium price tag, so they took matters into their own hands.

Their distinct vision and progressive platform made it easy to find a multi-talented crew of like-minded individuals. Modest yet agile, the DSTLD team comes from some of the top brands and companies in the world: GAP, John Varvatos, Adidas, Revolve, BCBG, Calvin Klein, Deloitte, and Caltech, to name a few. Most of us left corporate culture to endure the even more demanding startup culture, and we love every minute of it. "We come from all over the globe, but call Los Angeles home." DSTLD.com p .

Epstein, who’s diverse background includes photography, design, creative direction, and consulting, and Lynn, a luxury hospitality and e-commerce aficionado, knew they could build a brand that set them apart from traditional premium labels. A brand that was different, better, and had an edge. A brand for the modern consumer.
