4. Nudie Jeans Co.
Nudie Jeans Co. is a rare find; they make denim that is both stylish and socially responsible. The company promotes safe work environments and fair wages in the garment industry and uses environmentally friendly organic denim to create their duds. I originally though that name referred to their propensity towards skintight skinny jeans however this is not the case -- Nudie actually means "naked truth about denim."
