Diamond Gusset Jean Co., the American-made denim label known for its unique gusseted apparel construction, has joined forces with the New York-based custom and production motorcycle manufacturer Orange County Choppers (OCC) to create an exclusive jean collection for motorcycle riders.

Jointly created by the bike company founder Paul Teutul and the design team of the denim clothier, the Defender V2 Motorcycle Jean is primarily made from 100 percent cotton ring spun denim fabric, which is tinted with a special wash that stays darker for a long time, along with the cut resistant, cool and lightweight DuPont Woven Kevlar aramid fibers infused in the knee, hip and seat areas.

Replete with ankle buttons to prevent wind flapping and reinforced pockets to keep phones and wallets, the pants are stitched with a triple needle back yoke which enhances durability and are incorporated with a uniquely shaped larger gusset to provide extra comfort of movement to bikers.

The president and co-founder of Diamond Gusset, David Hall, said in a statement, “We’re a made-in-the USA brand and riding motorcycles has long been a part of American culture. So it was a very natural extension to team up with Paul and the folks at OC Choppers to create the ultimate riding jean.”

“Our 27 years of denim expertise coupled with Paul’s extensive experience working on and riding motorcycles has led us to create a truly standout jean that provides the style, comfort and utility that bikers look for,” he adds.

The founder Orange County Choppers, Paul Teutul, also spoke about the venture, “It’s been a real pleasure collaborating with Diamond Gusset and I’m proud to put my name on this American made product.”

In addition to the Defender V2, the denimwear expert has also created a more casual, off-duty look titled OCC Roadster Jean for motorcycle riders who still want to look the part even when they’re not on the road.

Based on modern slim-fit and bootleg silhouettes, the medium-dark stone washed, potassium sprayed front and rear and stretchable fabric crafted Roadster jeans gives a worn-in rider look with Diamond Gusset’s signature gusset sewn in.

Both designs are available for purchase at americangusset.com, the official Orange County Choppers showroom and retail store in Newburgh, New York as well as at orangecountychoppers.com.

Founded in 1987, headquartered in Bon Aqua, Tennessee, Diamond Gusset Jeans are made from American-produced cotton, zippers, thread, pocketing, rivets, buttons and patches.

Established in 1999, Orange County Choppers’ bikes are customized and built around a theme or for specific corporate or celebrity customers. (PB)
