Frequently asked questions
How do I order a sample?
Ordering jeans and other denim clothing is easy. If you know what style you want to make, select Sample Making from our Home Page, describe what you are looking for and place your order. It's as smple as this.
What if my project needs a special fabric?
We carry many premium denim fabrics in inventory. If a special fabric is needed, we can source it from a local fabric distributor or directly from the mills. We have worked with many specialized fabrics like Cordura reinforced denim and Dyneema nylon denim blends for farming and motorcycle riding apparel, fire retrardant denim and others.
How can I get jeans for immediate delivery?
Our normal production time is 4 to 6 weeks. That being said we have some ways of making goods in as little as 2 weeks under certain conditions. For starters, if you already have braded trim and want to produce with one of our existing bodies, we usually keep a large inventory of blank garments that are cut and sewn but unwashed, unfinished goods ready to go to the laundry and get trims. We can pretty much make any wash and treatment in a very short time.
Is there a way to make less than the minimum production quantity?
Our normal MOQ (minimum order quantity) 50 pieces per style/wash for designs customers submit and under certain circumstances we can do12 pieces per style/wash if ordered from our blank garments.
What if I have my own fabric?
We can quote your production without fabric and you can supply your own. You would give us a couple yards so we can test it.
What happens to my leftover trim after production is done?
We store your branded excess trim in our trim cage for up to 6 months without storage fee. If you want the trim back, you can pickup or we can ship them to you.
What does TOP mean?
TOP stands for Top Of Production. This is a sample that is pulled out of the sewing lines to quickly wash and finish. It is sent to the customer to show what the actual finished production looks like. If the customer finds and issue or wants to make a change, there is still sufficient time to make certain alterations. This method has proven to avoid many issues.
How do I order a pattern?
How do I order a sample if I don't have my own branded trim?
What trims should I order for jeans?
To the very least we recommend having a main label. That label identifies the jeans as your brand and remains attached to the garment. Minimalistic people should consider a button and a main label. People who would like a more covered look can include rivets, back patch, hang tag and joker tag. There are also pocket flashers and leg stickers, not very popular these days. Keep in mind that most trim go to the trash when the garment reaches the end user, so less may actually be more...
How do I get started making jeans?
Most customers talk to us on the phone to go over the details of ordering samples, production and trim. We discuss the entire process and many ask us to send a recap of the conversation. Here is a typical one:
We make jeans, jackets, vests, shorts, skirts, jumpsuits and any other denim related products.
We also make t-shirts, shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies.
We make for men, women, kids and plus size.
If you choose from our existing pre-sewn inventory the minimum order is 12 pieces per style. *12 piece program has been discontinued.
If you choose from our existing styles that are not pre-sewn, the minimum order is 60 pieces.*60 piece program has been discontinued.
If you submit your own design (for body, print doesn't matter) the minimum order is 50 pieces.

Trim development can be ordered straight from our website https://denimmfg.com
Most jeans prices vary between $52 and $60 made in USA with MOQ 300, $32 to $38 made in Pakistan with a minimum of 50 pieces.
We offer dropshipping (includes warehousing). The charge is $5 per order + $1 per item. Shipping billed separately. Free storage up to 90 days.
Is the minimum order for each size?
All minimum orders shown on this site are per style and color or per style and wash. Customers always get to choose what sizes they want. So for example if someone places a private label production order for 12 pieces, they can specify they want 1 size 23, 1 size 24, 2 size 25...
Do you offer free sample redo?
For every main sample we offer one redo at a charge of $50 to cover freight and other incidentals. Usually, if a sample needs major fit changes based on fitting notes provided by the customer, we will redo the sample. If the corrections are minor, we note them, adjust the pattern and make sure they come out right for production. If the wash needs correction and a new sample is not needed we make a leg to show the corrected wash. Our priority is for the garments to come out of the production line exactly on spec.
Do I need a techpack?
Short answer no.
Can you make more than 1000 pieces?
We work with 2 factories in Los Angeles, total production capacity 48,000 pieces per month. The factory we work with in Pakistan makes for big brand jeans with a capacity of 400,000 pairs of jeans per month. There is a small factor within that factory that is designed for lower quantities.
Should I order my branded trim from you or elsewhere?
You can choose to have other trim vendors develop and product your branded trim. When the trim production is ready you can have the vendor send it directly to our factory.
Do you offer private labeling?
There seems to be some confusion about the term 'private labeling'.
