Welcome to Z-Lab Denim


Designed by Zorie Barber, "Special Circumstances Genes” are the new standard in armored protective denim jeans. In a world where men’s denim has gone off the rails with ornamentation, Z-Lab smashes the pendulum back to real world design based on use and abuse, not peacockery.  Our motto is “Munus Ultra Modum” - “Function Beyond Fashion”.  Inspired by Zorie’s lifelong passion for motorcycle riding and time spent in Kyoto, Osaka, and Los Angeles studying Japanese Budo, SCGs are designed and built to give you a definitive functional advantage.
