Handmade Quality Built To Last
The most interesting man in the world does it without a tie, James Bond in a tux.
Amelia Earhart did it in aviator goggles. Frank Sinatra in a tailored suit & fedora.
James Dean did it with rolled up sleeves in a leather jacket.
They all had their own air of class, charm, & adventure. They blazed their own paths & charted their own territories. Each with their own journey into the unknown. And they all did it in handmade quality they trusted.
Every product I build is designed with adventure in mind. Ruggedness is an obligation & class is a virtue.
Will these materials weather a storm?
Will that hem hold as it's tossed off a train?
Will those rivets rust in the sea-spray?
Does this product breed confidence?
And most of all, will this product tell it's own stories for generations to come?
All of my products are handmade in Atlanta, Ga. I source materials from around the globe and never make a purchase with profit margins in mind. I make things by hand because I believe in artisan craftsmanship. And I never speed up the process in order to mass produce.
Quality takes time & commitment, research, trial & error. I offer goods that I am proud to stamp my name on because I am an adventurer, and I have battle tested each and every product that I offer.
I believe in getting better with age & I specifically design all of my products to age along with you. The more you use them the more beautiful their patinas will become. They are built to resemble you & your adventures & to tell your stories.
Plainly said, I hand make products you can trust on your adventures.
My products are an investment. They are classic. Staple pieces that will last in your closet.
By investing in a J. James product you’re investing in every stage of that products’ lifecycle, including the materials & processes I use to make it, from thread to finish.
Environmental responsibility - Every raw component I start with is crafted with sustainable materials & processes, including organic & recycled materials, low-impact dyes & water-conserving washes.
Social Responsibility - I have chosen to work with partners that ensure fair, safe & clean workplace conditions on a global scale. 95% of the apparel factories are WRAP-certified & all of them comply with Fair Labor Association standards.
