About Us

Based in Los Angeles, CQY is a women's and men's denim collection designed from a perspective that values quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity. We make clothing that’s built to last—a clean and modern style sensibility balanced by a deep respect for the rich heritage of denim inspires everything that we do. We believe that denim should be practical, durable, and deeply personal; a good pair of jeans should be with you for a long time and have plenty of stories to tell.
We treat each step of the design process like an art form, utilizing the highest-quality materials and beautifully understated details to create wardrobe essentials for our modern woman and man. We keep Los Angeles at the heart of our brand and support our city by working closely with local suppliers, vendors, and sewers.
CQY is founded by Samuel Ku, former President & Creative Director of denim brand AG Adriano Goldschmied. Under his helm, AG expanded to become one of the most beloved contemporary brands on the market, known for expertly made jeans in hand-developed washes and polished staples that anchor the day-to-day wardrobe. His passion for authentic design and Made in Los Angeles quality are the driving inspirations behind the CQY brand.
