Harleys is the purveyor of men’s denim in the Shorewood and Milwaukee area, and while we don’t play favorites with our jeans, we do have a special place in our hearts for Citizens of Humanity.
Citizens, founded in 2003, was one of the first brands to venture into luxury denim by fashioning a highly-specialized process for making their jeans. The method is so specialized, in fact, that they can only be made in America, according to this article by the LA Times.
Also because of their unique crafting process, Citizens only creates small batches of their jeans twice a year. Since they are stitched by hand, releasing many different styles at once isn’t possible. Also, Citizens values exclusivity and originality, so producing fewer collections and styles lets customers know they are getting something distinctive.
Hollywood—where celebs live to stand out—is a huge fan of Citizens, and the jeans have been seen on Leonardo DiCaprio, Gerard Butler, Edward Norton, Seth Rogan, Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum, Andy Samberg and more.
Harleys carries two styles of Citizens of Humanity jeans:
The Sid is a 5-pocket signature classic straight leg. This style has a low rise, and is slim and parallel from the knee to the bottom opening. It is the most universal straight fit and a closet staple for all.
The Core is a slim straight 5-pocket zipper fly jean. It tapers slightly from the knee to the leg opening for a slim straight fit. Classic 5-pocket styling and no back pocket embroidery.
