About Joe’s Jeans
Joe’s Jeans Inc. designs, produces and sells apparel and apparel-related products to the retail and premium markets under the Joe’s(R) brand and related trademarks.
In 2001 Joe Dahan introduced Joe’s Jeans, a collection of chic, sophisticated silhouettes that are designed to fit individual body types. Joe pioneered the concept of unique fits for a breadth of body shapes from the curvy gal, to the straight-wasted woman, to the petite lady. Today Joe’s Jeans has fourteen modern fits that perfect any look spanning from a lean, leggy figure to a tiny, lifted booty. You can count on Joe’s Jeans to accentuate curves in all the right places.
In 2005 Joe’s Jeans launched a men’s line of four fits that continue today: the Brixton, the Rocker, the Rebel, and the Classic. Like the women’s line, the men’s fits are also designed for individual, masculine body types. Each season Joe’s Jeans introduces new rinses, denim grades, and hand finishes that keep the collection fresh and exciting.
The emergence of premium denim made history in the fashion industry with Joe’s at the forefront of this momentous period. Celebrating over a decade as a leader in the premium denim market, Joe’s is best known for pioneering the concept of fits catered to specific body types. Joe’s innovative take on denim fits has garnered the brand a loyal fan following of women and celebrity fans alike.
