There is a very specific process that AG Jeans go through before you can have them in your hands. The fabrics are handpicked from finest Japanese mills. Japanese mills specialize in fabrics that are lightweight and rich in texture, and have a distinct dying process that gives each piece of denim a rich wash. Fabric is cut into a pattern that is left over night to shrink to the proper size. The sewing department then pieces the denim together, each person attends to specific area for both expertise and efficiency. Once this step is completed it is time to give each pair a signature look, for example a vintage wash & sanding. These are done freehand for a more authentic look. The denim then goes through a washing process, there is a specific formula used for every style in order to achieve the correct shade. The final step is adding finishing touches which will differ from style to style. For example, the Tellis, does not come with the signature AG pocket stitching for a clean and simple look. 


When speaking to Jordan Muns the Brand Manager for AG in Canada, he shared that when purchasing a pair of AG, you should take into account; “{AG} have the most authentic washes that hit all the right stress points which would normally take years to develop. This will give you the true authentic denim feel and look” accompanied by the quality of garment being unparalleled in the market place. 

Jordan recommended a style of AG Jeans to start off with would be the Tellis which not only happens to be the most popular fit in Canada but as well Jordan’s personal favorite. “This is a slim tapered leg opening with room in the thigh area. With the tapered bottom, the silhouette provides a streamlined tailored appearance”.

AG denim always stay’s true to its signature styles while still being on top of up-and-coming denim trends. “Certain trends are moving away from the ultra-skinny jean look. Additionally, we see people really investing in their wardrobe and paying attention to the quality and detail”. Jordan as well shared that in the spring and summer season we should expect to see “a nice range of washes in various vintage aging. Our fabrics for this season stay true to authentic denim feel, while still maintaining a level of stretch for everyday comfort”
