Shockoe Atelier is a full collection brand that mixes Italian hand crafted tailored items with American Denim bottoms. Based in Richmond, has been making impeccable denim bottoms for the past two years. What sets Shockoe’s denim apart is the incorporation of techniques from their background in Italian tailoring in their denim production, which leads to a pair of blue jeans constructed like a fine Italian trouser. With the addition of tailored shirting and outerwear for Fall 15 that is sourced from the finest hand needled tailors in Italy, Shockoe is moving into the best stores in the country.
