Canada has a long history of clothing manufacturing, but by the turn of the century many factories that made clothing and jeans were shutting down. Janna, James and Scott bought up machinery from closed factories in Calgary and Montreal, as well as locally from sellers in Edmonton. They made pattern after pattern, adjusting them each time after wearing the jeans. They travelled to Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Barcelona and Quebec to meet with manufacturers, denim suppliers, factory reps and finishing plants. They tried out denim from America, Italy, Turkey, Spain and Japan.

After amassing 14 industrial sewing machines, creating over 100 different patterns, testing 38 different denims, and wearing more than 200 pairs of jeans between them, the trio landed on a women’s and a men’s style they loved. They named the women’s “Typical Girls” after a song by all-girl punk legends the Slits, and the men’s “Riff Raff,” after a Bon Scott-era AC/DC song. Both styles went through ages of testing and wearing before being put into production—we’re sure you’ll like ‘em.
