Earnest Sewn has been acquired by Anthony Frym, a denim veteran who owns a China-based jeans production facility. Frym is in the process of establishing new wash and sewing facilities in Los Angeles to manufacture Earnest Sewn, which will relaunch for fall 2014.
Frym bought only the Earnest Sewn trademarks from the previous owner, Benoit Briere, and none of the company’s operations or retail leases. Two Earnest Sewn stores currently open in New York’s Meatpacking and Lower East Side neighborhoods will shutter by the end of the year. A new store operated by Frym will open in New York next year.
