Compared to other American made jeans, the DPJC pocket is designed to securely hold your stuff in place.
It’s been reported to us that our deep pockets provide a credible deterrent to the pickpockets of Europe and that they will accommodate some of the larger caliber personal security devices (guns).
We didn’t make our jeans for men that have deep pockets, but for those who want deep pockets. All our jeans have our signature 12 inch deep pockets, designed with a purpose.
All of our jeans include within the left main pocket an ancillary pocket specifically designed for a cell phone. The cell phone pocket is large enough for the larger phones such as the iPhone plus sizes.
It is situated below the hip to assure comfort while sitting, and in order to protect the phone, right next to the area which a man naturally defends. The advantages of a dedicated cell phone pocket are the ease of storing and recovery.
The phone will always be in the same place, no need to dig among the other contents of your pocket. Over time, as you become accustomed to wearing your jeans, you will notice the absence of your phone if you leave it behind.
Inside the right main pocket is a traditional coin or pocket watch pocket. Just like our main pockets, they are large enough to be truly useful and are secured to the body of the jean with our signature Hi-Shear replica rivet (see below about our rivet).
Our DPJC jeans are made with 100% cotton denim milled by the premiere American Denim maker at the Cone Denim Mill, White Oak, Greensboro, North Carolina USA. You can’t make denim better.
Our finishes, buttons, zippers and rivets are made by Kai USA at their plant in West Virginia. While we were investigating the best finishes for our jeans, we came across a story of a man, George S. Wing, who started his business in his garage in DPJC’s hometown of Hermosa Beach. Turns out that George was the inventor of the Hi-Shear rivet. The Hi-shear rivet has been credited with winning the 2nd World War, as it cut the weight of other rivets by 1/3rd, dropping hundreds of pounds from the weight of aircraft and allowing them to fly further and faster.
While the Hi-Shear rivet is not practical for jean production, as a tribute to George S. Wing and his connection to our hometown of Hermosa Beach, we commissioned Kai USA to produce a replica rivet for our jeans. We stamped the replica with our logo and named our styles after planes that incorporated the revolutionary designed rivet. Our first P51 Mustang (our first jean to use the replica rivet) bears the name of the first plane to use the Hi-Shear rivet.
