The Shop Goods
Designed from the ground up, with a classic silhouette, Natural Indigo Colour, and enough synthetic fibers to help you keep your skin. As motorcycle riders, we kept our passion in mind when we designed our jeans.
We often found ourselves considering going home to change into more protective pants before heading out for a ride. Since we prefer a more subtle classic design, that doesn't overstate its protective elements, we designed The Shop Denim with a 32% blend of synthetic fibers for asphalt abrasion resistance, and 8% Stretch for comfort and flexibility.
Our goal was to make a product that was manufactured in the USA that we could wear everyday, both on and off our bikes, with no one ever looking at us knowing that we were wearing something specifically designed for motorcycle riding.
We are very excited to introduce you to a collaboration that has been in the works for nearly 15 years.
Our Series A run of 225 hand signed and numbered Asphalt Resistant blend riding jeans. Made in Los Angeles California by our friends at Mr Clarke (@MC_Collective), specially for us here at The Shop Vancouver.
Te see some of our construction details please refer to the video below.
Thank you to everyone that has purchased a pair thus far, we are sitting at 20% sell though. Thank you !
***Our Jeans fit on the slimmer side of things, if you ride with a really high tight stance we suggest sizing up. Many people expect that our jeans will be like many other "motorcycle" pants that offer products with stretch..ie they will feel like jogging pants, or they are ill fitting and baggy to accommodate rubber padding, This is not the case with our jeans, because the Elastex is running along side the non stretch synthetic fibers which offers no stretch, our jeans has the slightest amount of mechanical or diagonal stretch. Our jeans are also designed to look good and fit when you are off your motorcycle as well.. Please note that our jeans are also raw, so you can expect them to open up a little bit in the waist, about 2cm with about 2 weeks of wear.
We suggest you either never wash your jeans or you use a soaking method of washing them.
our photos aren't models, they are real people who have been wearing our jeans for the last few months.

Flat Head's best selling jean in Japan, the 3009 is their perfect straight leg fit. This cut is inbetween the 3001 and 3005, it's a straight leg cut on the modern side with a medium/low rise and a slight taper below the knee.
The denim is Flat Head's infamous 3XXXX which is known for it's intense fading properties including a nice vertical fade.
These jeans are made of unsanforized denim, when washed the denim will shrink 1" in the waist and 3" in the length (inseam). Please keep this in mind when choosing your size. The denim will also stretch in the waist up to 1" after approximately 30 wears.
I'm really into these pants but they would need to be hemmed for sure.. They are such a rad cut ... they just need to be cut off.
Tj is a little over 6 foot and 174 Lbs and wears a 32 in The Flat head.. we suggest sizing up a little bit in these if you plan to wear them raw and up a couple sizes if you intend to shrink em up.
These jeans also have 100% cotton thread

These jeans drive me nuts I love them so much!
perfect true to fit for me... Tj is a little over 6 foot and 174 Lbs and wears a size 30 with a couple rolls on the bottom.
this pair is about 50 days in with no wash or soak and wearing in like a beautiful glove.
‘LA JOLLA’ draws inspiration from the preferred cut of the 1960s, with an overall tapered silhouette. The handmade process of creating each pair of Stevenson Overalls are symbolized through the features like the curved belt loops, back pockets and coin pockets, which are all crafted using the same single stitch flat felled seam method originally applied to denim production during the 1920s.
The denim fabric is exclusively produced for Stevenson Overalls on a vintage shuttle loom with Zimbabwe cotton. The unsanforized 14oz. selvedge denim has a rough and slubby character, with a subtle green color undertone.

The map of Vietnam is embroidered on the back, it is orthodox design Bettojan!

In 1868 (first Meiji period) when Japan's first immigrant crossed the sea and went to Hawaii.
From there the history of Hawaiian workwear, which should also be called the origin of Aloha shirt, starts.
Because Japanese style was the mainstream at that time in Japan, people who moved to Hawaii
I was forced to tailor the work clothes using the fabrics procured locally.
And as the number of immigrants increased, the demand for workwear also increased,
Manufacturers that correspond to mass production as well as tailors will also enter.
Founded in 1922, Union Supply boasted a large share as a clothing manufacturer in Hawaii.

I stumbled across this old interview from when we first opened The Shop. Since then a ton has changed, but the idea hasn't. We still love motorcycles, we still offer our customers a space to join us for conversation, and we still strive to have a real and personal connection with each and every brand that we carry...
Quarterbacks or hockey stars staring down retirement at age 32 might open a car dealership or go into real estate, but what does a pro snowboarder do when it's time to diversify? For longtime Capita pro T.J. Schneider, the issue was forced when one of his other major sponsors bailed on a "sizable lump of cash" owed to him and the Canadian had to examine his options.
In a chain of events involving blind faith, entrepreneurial vigor, good friends, marketing savvy and killer timing, Schneider now finds himself the co-owner of The Shop Vancouver, a moto-themed men's clothing store and micro-café in British Columbia's largest city.
I'd learned about Dondero through an interview I'd done with Conor Oberst back in 2001. I cant remember how his name came up, if it was becasue of the song he had recently recorded with David, or if he was talking about his early influence... either way the second I hung up the phone I went straight to the internet looked up David Dondero and fell in love....
When we heard that Levis was doing a limited run of 1976 Levis 501's with super rare roll of Cone Mills Dead stock left hand twill Selvedge Denim fabric and 100% mirrored construction... to say everyone at The Shop Vancouver was intrigued, would be a real understatement....
