In 2011, Josh West and Nick Weaver purchased the remains of a long-forsaken garment operation in Memphis, Tennessee, and moved the equipment to their studio in Mississippi. Seven months later, Blue Delta Jean Co. shipped its first custom jean. With unique styles ranging from the Americana to the Cali, all Blue Delta Jeans have minimalist design features that are at the heart of CEO Josh West’s vision. “Jeans are the foundation, not the focal point” West says, “An accomplished musician once told me that if you notice the drummer, he isn’t doing his job.
I view our jeans in the same light. Blue Delta Jeans should set the tempo for the style of the individual but shouldn’t take away from the ensemble. Our garments don’t rely on loud pocket designs or artificial washes. A custom fit and solid design will makes our customers look and feel their best.” The Made in America garment industry has recently seen a resurgence best described as “the foreword to an American comeback story.” What was once thought to be gone forever is now seeing new life. Blue Delta is proud to be a small part of this phenomenon.
