Raleigh Denim was founded by Sarah and Victor Lytvinenko in Raleigh, North Carolina, just over 100 miles from our front door. Together, the two look close to home for the sourcing of their US-made denim brand. With Cone Denim Mills right in their backyard, Victor and Sarah have access to denim from one of America’s [...]
Let’s start off by making it clear that I’m not a denim head. However, I’ve grown more and more appreciative of a well broken in pair of jeans. When you see a pair that’s worn in right, there’s really nothing like it. That being said, it has been nearly a year since I got my [...]
Traditionally, “The Blue Period” is a term used to define the works produced by Pablo Picasso between 1901 and 1904, when the Spanish painter used monochromatic shades of blue and blue-green almost exclusively. The paintings were somber and anguished, resulting from a severe depression that consumed Picasso following the suicide of a close friend. Picasso’s [...]

A few weeks ago, our good friends Daniel Cummings and Matt Baldwin made the trip in from Kansas City to introduce an exclusive pant to Need Supply Co.

Denim. Where would we be without it? A staple piece, a statement piece, and everything in between. Once the weather cools down, it’s the first thing we put on and the last thing we take off. Recently, WhoWhatWear made a video love letter to this cotton standout and it’s got us rooting for fall. Take a peek, get some outfit [...]

When it comes to denim, there’s a big difference between summer and winter. Humans’s move, especially in the summer. And when human’s move, humans tend to perspire (go figure). One of our go to pairs of jeans for the warmer months of the year is the 10.5 ounce Wilson Trouser from Raleigh Denim. This particular [...]
A few weekends ago, we started off our Meet The Maker series with Billy Moore of Cause and Effect and Ashley James of Ruell and Ray. Billy and Ashley made an in-store appearance and demonstrated their craft and knowledge to anyone who cared to see. Over the course of the weekend, we took Billy down to [...]
A little over four months ago we got in the Rogue Territory Stantons and immediately had to put them to the test. Four months later, after hiking, camping, parties, spills, thrills and coffee stains, we’d like to share with you how they’ve come along.

The Richmond Times Dispatch came in the shop the other day for a quick rundown on how to buy denim. We let Holly run the show.
We’re denim people. We always have been and we always will be. There will be an eternal passion about the material that owns a spot in our hearts. We’ve tried them all on, sizes too big for us and sizes too small. Fits too loose and fits too big. Every cut, every weight, and we’ve [...]
