Based in Williamsburg Brooklyn, NY - showing serious pride for the neighborhood the designer has lived and worked in for nearly 20 years, all styles are named after Streets located in Williamsburg. The jeans are designed, warehoused and shipped from Brooklyn. Since May of 2013, the jeans have been mainly produced with Cone Mills Denim from North Carolina and sewn and washed in Los Angeles, California.
Launched November 2011, WGC is the brain child of Maurice Malone who took Apple’s motto to heart and thought differently, coming up with a formula for success that no one has tried before. In 2012 when Maurice operated as a 1-man company, Brooklyn and L Magazines wrote an article entitled “The Steve Jobs of Denim?”
As a 1-man operation, the brand was started with about $3,500 and 3 styles. All jeans were made at Maurice's friend's small factory in China. Later, inspired by President Obama's call to bring more business back to the USA, the brand evolved to make all products MADE in USA. With a small amount of imported styles still in stock until sold, all imported styles are being phased-out with the best sellers scheduled to return as Made in America Jeans.
After 2 Years, WGC has grown to a 2-man Operation. Great customer service and producing the highest quality products at any price are our top priority.
Recorded at Brooklyn Denim Company where WGC has a wide selection of men's and women's jeans, Designer Maurice Malone of Williamsburg Garment Company discusses his "Small Time Operation."
