AG Adriano Goldschmied

The AG Adriano Goldschmied brand, founded in 2000, partnered long-time denim guru, Adriano Goldschmied, and the industry leader in quality and innovative jean manufacturing, Yul Ku, of Koos Manufacturing in South Gate, CA.

After many years of starting up new brands and creating new ways to replicate vintage jeans, it was time for Adriano to launch the definitive line that would truly represent his longtime vision. He found the ability to do this by partnering up with Koos Manufacturing. Founder Yul Ku was a second-generation jeans maker. After coming to the United States in 1975, Mr. Ku opened his first manufacturing plant with his family in Los Angeles. Shortly afterwards he struck out on his own, initially manufacturing for Calvin Klein Jeans. Over the next 20 years Koos Manufacturing has produced jeans for Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, J. Crew, A/X Armani Exchange, Polo Ralph Lauren and Lucky Brand, to name a few, all the while keeping high quality, integrity and honesty at the forefront.

Over time, Mr. Ku realized that while he enjoyed manufacturing immensely, the idea of developing his own brand continually beckoned. When Adriano approached him in the spring of 1999 the opportunity presented itself. Starting out as a small boutique line the first couple of years, AG has grown steadily the last four years, doubling its sales in each of the past three years.
