Jude started out in the Textile world as a technical intern in the Textile Research & Development division of the Firestone Tire Co. From there he went on to manage a large composite textile mill in Asia where he mastered spinning, weaving, dyeing, and apparel production. He eventually moved to Vancouver and established J.N. Alvit Ltd, a global denim supply chain manager, and began working with major denim retailers in North America. Jude’s affinity for creative work with denim drew him to Los Angeles where he would expand his manufacturing base for handcrafted jeans. It is here that he honed his washing and processing skills with some of the world’s best denim laundries.
After 27 years designing for private denim labels, Jude Neale crafted his own denim line, merging his decades of experience and skill with his timeless passion to create a denim brand, unlike any other.
