"The Edit Roosevelt Field provided Revtown with a turnkey retail solution that expedited our journey into physical retail earlier than we initially planned. We are thrilled for the opportunity to interact with our customers," said Steve Battista, co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer. He continued, "Our customers are smart shoppers that appreciate craftsmanship, well made goods, and value fair pricing. The denim is infused with four-way stretch that allows customers to stand, sit, squat, and move comfortably. And the $75 price point makes the jeans an easy first-time purchase."

"Simon is dedicated to bringing new brands and experiences to our customers. We are pleased The Edit enables us to meet and help launch brands such as Revtown USA and offer the chance for brands to get into retail early on in their life cycle," said Zachary Beloff, National Director of Business Development for Simon. "The importance of creating offline experiences is more apparent than ever. We are thrilled each time we launch a brand and get to see our customers respond. Revtown USA is a quality product at a great value our customers are going to love." 

Revtown Jeans come in two styles, SHARP and AUTOMATIC. SHARP jeans are fitted with a refined look, more dress than casual, yet with the flex of DECADE DENIM™. AUTOMATIC jeans are for "any guy, any time, any place and are designed to be mobile, not baggy, providing ultimate comfort without having to size up."

The new store will feature a 30-foot denim wall showcasing the complete range of washes and fits, a customer lounge and a seamless checkout solution powered by Shopify.  Revtown offers Revtown Shirts, made from world-class Pima cotton, available in four essential styles including Crew, V-Neck, Henley and Polo.
