JEAN SHOP was begun in 2003 as the brain child of Gene Monsanto and Barry Perlman who created Lucky Brand Jeans working with co-founder, Eric Goldstein who created RRL Denim and GAP 1969 denim re boot. The TV series “HOW TO MAKE IT IN AMERICA” was based on Eric and the original JEAN SHOP concept. A quick snapshot of the brand and its consumer/celebrity following can be gleaned from logging onto www.jean-shop.com and clicking on “BRAND BOOK”.
JEAN SHOP thrives on specialty shops and that is what makes them unique. They are aggressively seeking THE BEST TRADING PARTNERS to be found around the WORLD as they build JEAN SHOP to the industry leader it is destined to become.
The JEAN SHOP boutique on Crosby Street in NYC was called “one of the 10 best Denim Stores in the World” by Adriano Goldschmeid. Recently, Sportswear International profiled founder and creative director Eric Goldstein in their blogsite called, The Manual. This throws shimmering light on JEAN SHOP as a retail concept and gives some insight into their wholesale goals for the future.
There is tremendous industry buzz surrounding the brand currently which is certain to trickle down to the end consumer at an alarming rate given the technologically accelerated world in which we find ourselves today.
