How does one create the perfect pair of jeans? At Trave which means “(n.) a crossbeam or formal support structure against which others can rise,” designer I.J. Kim starts at the seams. With his background in engineering and his penchant for collecting vintage denim, Kim thoughtfully considers the construction of every pair with great attention to detail. Everything from fabric and fit to thread colors and pocket placement are meticulously worked and reworked until the final perfect pair is created.
With these vintage inspired styles, the distressed detailing comes across as natural and authentic, done through the artful manipulation of material that’s been whiskered and sanded. Trave puts fit above fashion, design above trends, and craftsmanship above all else, with the final result being a timeless pair of jeans you’ll love to wear and wear forever.
