Eric Yelsma started Detroit Denim in 2008, just as the financial crisis was picking up steam. Today, his shop is one of the only jean manufacturers in Detroit. The small team of 10 churn out about 40 pairs of jeans a week. They’re made of a sturdier type of denim called selvedge. Each pair takes around four hours to make.

  1. Selvedge is a hype. It can last longer? Levis also can do that. Better price, much comfortable..

  2. What handmade means to me: No machine used in the production of the garment. Sewing by hand means needle and thread work: manually threading the eye of the needle, making the knot and stitch by tedious stitch sewing seams, pressing the seams which all may take days rather than hours. The labor costs would shoot up even higher. I may have to make my own.

  3. 2:19 The average cost of jeans in the US is $165-211? I've never spent more than $40 for a pair of jeans in my life.

  4. I love skinny jeans only if I wear open jeans then I will not wear them I also wear ripped jeans

  5. Why does the title say How Handmade Jeans Are Made In Detroit but it shows a jean jacket in the thumbnail?

  6. Who disliked? Who was offended by this and how? Also good for them for working and taking matters into their own hands but dang those some expensive jeans and jean jackets.
