ORIGINAL Authentic denim Workshop

located in West LA

A Bespoke denim studio, workshop & showroom under one roof.   with over 35 years of experience, founder Robert Rifkin considers jean-making an art.  Each jean is made with precision, passion and care with vintage non-automated machines,  just like the good old days.

People come in and ask me  “what do you do here?   “we are a design studio where your ideas become reality".  Rufcut jeans for  men & women  made here on route66 with premium denim from Japan & USA...made one at a time. " 

Back in 1996,  I traded in my tailored trousers for a pair of good old American 501's.   Then the denim worshipping began....

Rufcut jeans repairs & makes bespoke jeans, jackets and shirts and boasts an impressive collection of vintage and used Levi's (circa 1950's to the 1970's). The little jean shack, originally located on Pico Blvd was built by the railroad as a conductor shack that transported you back to the golden days of polished vinyl and quality denim.
