3sixteen was founded in 2003, and has evolved to become one of the premier denim focused brands. Co-owners Andrew Chen and Johan Lam meet serendipitously at a wedding where they discovered they had similar clothing tastes. 3sixteen has a bi-coastal presence in both NY and LA. 3sixteen works with Kuroki Mills in Japan to develop denim specifically for the brand, making them one of the very few American denim brands to have custom fabric.
