It was early 2023 when we sat down with Jake and Zach in the shop at JJ Performance. The plan was to make workwear that fit our style but more importantly make the patterns fit "us".
Let's face it, not everyone is shaped like a refrigerator. Thats what the big box stores like to sell to the blue-collar crowd. And not everyone can afford to purchase the trendy Japanese workwear labels.

We decided to start with two jacket patterns and modify the fit to match our taste. The Signature and Chore jackets are available in 14oz Raw Canvas, Raw Denim, and Waxed Canvas.
The crew at JJ run a few operations in the area from building places to live and work, fabricating parts for auto and construction, and working on some high-end vehicles. It's a family business that has expanded over the years to keep those involved motivated. You may work in the same environment or know someone who does. At the end of the day, we wanted to build something that can help you get your job done in style.
JJ Belts Available Now - Gloss Black, Matte Black, Crazy Horse Brown

In their Charlotte NC shop you can purchase from the full line of Thorogood Boots. This shop is more than just jackets and boots. If you have a love for 4x4 trucks or fast cars the guys at JJ Performance can set you up with the right parts for your project. If your wallet allows, you can commission the team to build you a SEMA worthy vehicle that will make any motorhead stop and ask questions.
