Denim and casualwear brand COMUNE launched a project called theUNKNOWN, a Domestically Made Denim product release and book project by COMUNE that pays tribute to Jose Gonzalez motorcycle enthusiast, Orange County/Long Beach local and a long time friend to COMUNE founder, Frank Delgadillo.
“Jose is someone whom I have always thought should have his story told, and if I ever had an opportunity to do so, it is a project that I would want to be involved with. He is such an interesting, solid guy with a lifetime of stories to be shared and respect to be had,” states Delgadillo. “We wanted to design a pair of jeans for Jose that would reflect his lifestyle.”
The domestically made, raw indigo denim is designed by COMUNE and Jose Gonzalez and is packaged along with the volume one Jose Gonzalez hard-copy book written by Jose’s close friend, well-known motorcycle journalist, Nelson Kanno.
COMUNE will be launching theUNKNOWN first in New York on Friday, January 14th and will be partnering with select retailers worldwide for a limited offering scheduled to hit retail in early February.
