Blackthorn Denim emerged in New York, founded by John Gallagher, the world’s top male fit consultant in the fashion industry. Acting as the voice of men for over 25 years, John has advised over a hundred of the world’s leading brands how to make their clothes fit, feel, and wear better.
John’s love of denim and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to launch his own brand of premium raw denim, giving him the autonomy to infuse his line with the best know-how he’s gathered and deliver intrinsically well-fitting jeans that will endure. This commitment is woven into every garment in Blackthorn’s iconic emblem – with a reminder to live life with the raw confidence that comes only from weathering a few storms and emerging greater for it.
The Blackthorn chieftain tree is said to be the “increaser of secrets,” mirroring John’s insider knowledge of the fashion industry. Blackthorn trees inspire John because they bear fruit at first frost, symbolizing the emergence of life—despite adversity.
