J Brand (also known as J Brand Jeans) is a Los Angeles-based men’s and women’s premium denim and fashion company. J Brand was co-founded by Jeff Rudes and former stylist Susie Crippin in 2004 on the premise of creating the perfect fitting jean that was classic, sophisticated and timeless.
J Brand is all about having great fits and classic timeless washes that women would feel great wearing. The brand was first released as an exclusive at Ron Herman’s Melrose Jeans Bar in Spring 2005. They had a huge success and were one of the first American-made, premium denim brands to dive into the skinny/straight leg jeans market. While keeping up with the trends, they then introduced the wide leg jean, steering them away from their classic skinny jeans. The new styles have been a huge hit with celebrities and magazines such as Vogue.
