Give em’ credit. Bonobos knows how to make clothes that get attention. These aren’t even for sale yet and there already seems to be heavy interest. They launched a micro site earlier this month so potential customers could sign up to be the first to buy their new jeans, and they ran out of invite “space” pretty quick. Here’s the slicked up promo video from Bonobos introducing their denim:
- They’re made in the USA. Los Angeles specifically.
- They’re not just made with Cone® Denim, but denim from the White Oak Plant on the east coast. They do have other plants around the world, but the denim for the Bonobos line is woven in the United States.
- They come with the Bonobos fit that many (but not all) seem to really love.
- Nos stitching across the back pockets or any easily noticeable branding.
- Comes with Bonobos fast shipping and Ninja Customer Service.
The Not So Good
- The price tag is a wallet bruising $125.00. Dump salsa on them and you might cry.
- Knowing the ferocity of Bonobos diehards, getting your hands on a pair of these soon after they’re released might be difficult. Like lassoing a unicorn difficult. A unicorn being ridden by a leprechaun. Who’s using his T206 Honus Wagner as a bookmark in the Gutenberg Bible he’s carrying.
It’s unknown if these jeans will be excluded from promo codes or Groupons. Nothing else seems to have been before, but you never know. There always seems to be a 20% off code floating around out there, and that would put these at an even $100. Or, about twice the cost of a made in Mexico pair of Levi’s 501s.
You interested? If $125 is way over your budget, is the Bonobos fit, U.S. manufacturing & U.S. made fabric enough to consider these as a splurge? Are you a denim fanatic that already spends $100 on jeans? Leave it all below.
