The roaring twenties, the industrial revolution, and the wild west. These were times when life was simple, but authentic. Sibling trio Mark, Adam, and Ania Taubenfligel have built a brand inspired by the desire, hard work, and passion that these eras were built on. Based in Los Angeles, California, Triarchy are the manufacturers of some pretty remarkable custom bikes and limited edition denim jeans. All made at home, in America.
It’s All Style To Me didn’t get a chance to test out the stylish custom made Triarchy bikes, but we did get our hands on a pair of the Men’s Slim Jeans shortly after their debut at Toronto’s LG Fashion Week (video above). Number 205 of 250 from their latest collection to be precise. Triarchy jeans come in a variety of men’s and women’s styles. Their jeans are available in skinny, straight, and boot cuts so there’s something there for everyone. Women actually have an added hybrid option (skinny top, boot cut bottom). These guys don’t cut any corners as high-quality is their number one priority. Their denim is sourced from Japan for the women and Italy for the men – both 98% cotton and 2% stretch for the most comfortable fit and feel.
At 6’2″ and 235lbs, it’s safe to say that I’m a pretty big guy. It’s very difficult to find jeans that actually fit from waist through to ankles. There are few brands that actually work for me and as a result, I’ve been very loyal to them. Triarchy is the newest member on that list. The skinny men’s jeans are more slim than hipster skinny for a perfect fit. They recommend going down a size, but honestly, I’m a size 36 and just like Italian jeans – they’re tight at first but give a little conforming to your body rather quickly. The indigo flattrack wash of the Italian denim is a shade different from any of the jeans I currently own. Great, because they don’t look like everything else. Huge fan of the gauge of the denim which is nice and thin, yet durable.
Nothing too outlandish or gaudy with the branding or labels which is encouraging. The black anodized T-logoed buttons are a nice touch as are the subtle T’s on the back pockets. The craftsmanship is superior and I would feel just as comfortable cruising up state route one on one of their custom bikes as I would dressing up for a night out on the town with Triarchy’s jeans. That being said, perhaps the best part about Triarchy jeans is that they are produced in limited runs of 250 per style, per season. So I know that only 249 other guys on this planet have the same pair of skinny’s as I do. Very cool.
Mark, Adam, and Ania come from varied backgrounds and have managed to channel their collective love for motorcycles, classic cars, architecture, art, and equestrian life into a unique brand. From what I’ve seen in the photos of their motorcycles and what I’ve tested in the denim, I’m impressed. I hope they stay the course and bring us all more west coast denim by way of jackets, shirts and more.
