There is only few top denim brands nowadays and True Religion is definitely one of those brands. Jeans fans don't need lots of explanation as the name speaks for itself, however for those who are looking for good quality pair of denim - this is for you!!
True Religion was found in 2002 by Jeffrey Lubell with the intention to redefine premium denim. His vision was to make quality, American-made, authentic, timeless, great fitting, 1970's inspired jeans wear with a trendsetting appeal for today's consumer. True Religion's commitment to the perfect fit, timeless style and that hippie bohemian chic flair have solidified True Religion's brand position as a leader in premium denim and casual sportswear globally.
While continuing to expand True Religion's line of jeans and sportswear, company also expanded its line, introducing more products such as footwear, swimwear, eyewear, hosiery and fragrance - operating across the United States, Europe, Asia and Canada-now also in Calgary in Chinook Centre!!!
