  4. 4. DENIM CLUB INDIAJanuary 2014 05 Apparel Denim Club : Your Window To The World Of Denim Shay Sudry, the denim veteran, knew that he had to do something different to carve a niche in what is still a crowded denim marketplace, when he thought of creating his own line. He wanted to make jeans that no other label was doing, and wanted them affordable, while being both fashionable and sturdy. All of his priorities have been sewn up in the new denim line, named People vs. West Jeans, he said. In October, Sudry delivered the first shipment of the line to boutique chains such as M. Fredric, which has more than nine locations in LosAngeles County. P e o p l e v s . We s t , w h i c h i s manufactured in America, is wholesaling from $44 to $69. One of Sudry’s goals was to make premium denim at a medium price point. The line takes its inspiration from the jeans of the 19th century and bespoke suits. Like bespoke pants made by a tailor, People vs. West Jeans offers subtle details. There’s a dotted indigo fabric in the lining of the back pocket and brown canvas taping at the pants’ fly, and some pants have a unique “accordion- fold,” double-pleated back pocket. The jeans are available in four fits: slim, straight, extra slim and relaxed straight. But like the denim of pioneer days, Sudry planned for the fabric to be strong, and the strength and denim heritage inspired the name of the brand. “I felt like that denim originated from the West,” Sudry said. He wanted to make jeans that would honor in denim that heritage of the working people who built the Western United States. “They were fighting the elements,” he said.

  8. 8. INVISTA, owner of LYCRA fibre, and Lenzing, a leading producer of man-made cellulosics like rayon, modal, and lyocell, have teamed up to bring improved aesthetic performance to stretch fabrics. By combining INVISTA’s patented LYCRA dualFX fabric technology with LENZING’s TENCEL fibre, the two companies are delivering a unique solution to the industry: cellulosic denim fabrics with significantly improved shape retention. As per Federica Albiero, INVISTA’s Denim Account Manager for Southern Europe, INVISTA started hearing about challenges its denim fabric manufacturers were facing in developing stretch cellulosic fabrics. So the company initiated a study to identify the underlying mechanisms of these issues and determine how to improve them. “Given the growing popularity of both LYCRA fibre and TENCEL fibre in the denim market, it was only natural that people wanted to combine them to come up with really amazing fabrics”, Albiero said. “However, as mills began experimenting they encountered issues such as growth, fabrics not keeping their shape, and fabric puckering due to seam slippage.” To address these issues INVISTA ran trials pairing LYCRA dualFX fabric technology with blends of cotton andTENCELfibre. The trials showed significant improvement in fabric recovery and slippage to the point where the fabric performance met or exceeded INVISTA’s and the industry’s standards. From there, INVISTA and Lenzing decided to work together to promote these fabrics in the marketplace. Lenzing is pleased to work with INVISTA to help our customers develop commercial fabrics with strong marketing attributes. Both companies have global sales, marketing and technical teams supporting the developments and they will provide joint promotional materials as well as supply chain support and marketing information. “This initiative represents two globally innovative fibre companies working together to provide the denim market with fabrics that meet the performance needs of modern consumers”, says Michael Kininmonth, Senior Project Manager of Denim at Lenzing Fibres Inc. “Superior comfort with stretch and long-lasting recovery are set to become the next core product in women’s wear.” “LYCRA dualFX fabrics bring a whole new standard of performance to denim so it was only natural to extend that technology to blends with TENCEL fibre”, saidAlbiero. “We are excited to work together with Lenzing and we think both companies can bring significant value to the marketplace.” Recently, TENCEL fibre has been reinvented by denim designers as the perfect complement to today’s fashion trends. Jeans with TENCEL fibre are attractive, durable, and become immediate favourites thanks to their enhanced comfort. The fibre’s smooth surface and optimal moisture transfer benefits turn jeans into articles of clothing that enhance physical well-being while still being on-trend.

Lenzing supplies the global textile and nonwovens industry with high‐quality man‐made cellulose fibers and is the leading supplier in many business‐to‐business markets.TENCEL® by Lenzing offers aesthetics, comfort properties and naturalness at the same time.TENCEL® is cotton`s ideal partner for denim applications, and authentic denims or even soft denims can be created withTENCEL®.The success of the Lenzing Group is based on a unique combination of consistent customer orientation together with its leadership in innovation, technology and quality. There is no doubt that denim manufacturing has a high environmental impact.Therefore Lenzing, in collaboration with supply chain partners, proposes to optimize the production process from the fiber to the finished garment, using the latest thinking and best technology available to create true “low impact” denim jeans. A range of environmentally‐responsible arguments make jeans ofTENCEL® an eco‐alternative. The simple addition ofTENCEL® to conventional authentic cotton jeans can improve the environmental profile significantly. If only 25 % ofTENCEL® is blended into denim fabrics, the area under cultivation for cotton and the consumption of water can be reduced by over 20 %.The fabric is a majority cotton, minorityTENCEL® blend.The cotton content has to be organic or transitional cotton plus a percentage of recycled cotton. TENCEL® is more!
