Do stylish, high-quality garments require a luxury price tag? At DSTLD, our answer is a resounding no.
We have always valued a top-quality product and customer experience over the name on the label of our clothes. But as educated consumers living in Los Angeles, the denim capital of the world, we found it impossible to find well-made jeans and go-to essentials without the premium price tag.
With backgrounds that span from photography, design, and creative direction, to operations, e-commerce, and consulting, we knew we could build a brand that set us apart from traditional premium labels. A brand that was different, better, and had an edge. A brand for the modern consumer. Our distinct vision and progressive platform has made it easy to find a multi-talented crew of like-minded individuals. Modest yet agile, the DSTLD team comes from some of the top household name brands and companies in the world, all who left corporate culture to endure the even more demanding startup world.
At DSTLD’s inception, we focused on denim. Los Angeles being the epicenter of premium jeans, combined with the nearly mandatory denim uniform worn by today's creative class, made it a clear choice. A year in, our focus expanded to include luxury essentials like made in LA cotton tees, timeless outerwear, and after a lot of tweaking, the best leather jackets around.
