3sixteen’s modern history starts in 2008 with their very first pair of jeans, the SL-100x. They worked directly with Kuroki Mills in Okayama, Japan to develop a custom denim designed to withstand hard wear and show incredible character along the way.
Everything about the jean, from the cut to the buttons, rivets, leather patch, and stitch color, was selected to demonstrate a level of lasting quality and versatility.
This guiding philosophy is evident in the pieces they've developed since then: their shirts, jackets, basics and accessories all take cues in form and function from their jeans. Fabrics and trims are always chosen for their capacity to develop character with time.Their aim is that, with diligent wear, customers will be rewarded with something well aged, never “old.”
3sixteen: the last shall be first.
