Launched in 2002 by Jeff Lubell and Kym Gold, True Religion began as a denim brand, offering premium handmade jeans for men that quickly helped them to cement their place as one of the leading denim designers. Since their launch, the brand has grown significantly to incorporate a comprehensive collection offering other pieces such as t-shirt, hoodie, tracksuit, accessories, shorts and more. Their familiar buddha and horseshoe logos often adorn their garments and in fact the iconic horseshoe was born from the silhouette of a Buddha’s smile.
