How to spell Comfort: A-G-A-V-E

Courage, compassion, conservation, confidence and, most emphatically, comfort describe what Agave Denim lifestyle clothing is all about. Tom James and our customers like Agave for several reasons, not the least of which is that, like most Tom James clothing, Agave products are Made-in-the U.S.A. Designed in Portland, Oregon and carefully sewn and hand-finished in Southern California, Agave jeans and T-shirts epitomize a “West Coast” vibe. What’s more, Agave production is environmentally sustainable, using luxurious fabrics that are soft and that want to move with you.

The Agave style is defined by one’s inner confidence and the ability to enjoy the simple beauty of life. Agave exists to design and produce the best tailored, most beautiful and highest quality denim jeans, authentically sewn and hand finished, exclusively in California. One thing that has never changed, nor will ever change, is our commitment to making jeans and tee shirts in America. We know it is the best thing for our product, the best thing for our customers, and the best thing for our country. We know we could make our jeans a lot less expensively in China, Turkey or Mexico but we choose not to. We feel it is in the heritage of denim to be made in America. We also know it is our way thinking globally and sourcing locally.

Whether on the laid back west coast or any other part of the U.S.A. (and many other parts of the developed world), when not wearing traditional business clothing, a substantial percentage of men (women too) prefer to and choose to wear jeans and T-shirts. Why? Lots of reasons to be sure. For one, it’s vintage America. It’s in our cultural DNA. Jeans and T-shirts are associated with everything from the 19th century gold rush to Marlon Brando and James Dean, the Happy Days of the post war 50’s, and the modern gold rush inspired by the technological innovations including but not limited to the personal computer, the internet, and the magic of software.

If your next jeans and T-shirts are from Agave Denim, say hello to “effortlessly cool” comfort and a lot more Joie de Vivre. To complete your look, pair your Agave Denim with a soft-tailored sport jacket. You’ve heard me say many times before that in modern dress etiquette, nothing more universally conveys respect and professionalism than a tailored jacket. Need a second opinion on that point? Consult the April 2013 issue of GQ, pg. 208. Your Tom James Clothing Professional can show you a broad range of options in wool, cotton, linen, silk or various blends.

Weekend comfortable, yet highly respectable,
