Your Bag
Welcome to Industry Standard
A great pair of jeans is a staple in any wardrobe, and yet finding the perfect pair of jeans can feel like an impossible task. Industry Standard was conceived with the vision of making the perfect pair of jeans for a price that wouldn't break the bank.

See How It Works
Made in L.A.
Industry Standard jeans are made in Los Angeles, alongside veteran designer denim brands, within the heart of the denim district.
The Factory
Our Fabrics
Our fabrics are sourced from the long-established Cone Denim mill in North Carolina–the original and premier supplier of denim in America.
The Details
Each pair is individually made, crafted with consideration given to every detail and measurement.
The Result?
A fit that complements your figure. A fit that keeps its shape and doesn’t bag out after a few wears. A fit with just the right amount of stretch, so you can live in your jeans comfortably.
American manufacturing has long been in decline, as it has become increasingly expensive to manufacture domestically.
