3Sixteen: The Gospel Through Raw Denim
John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
While this may be one of the most popular verses in the Bible, it still remains to be one of the most powerful and foundational teachings of the Gospel. The co-owners Johan Lam and Andrew Chen (pictured above with his two children) have stated publicly that 3Sixteen is founded upon this verse and that it is something that is central to who they are.
In an interview by ropedye.com, Andrew says "Johan and I are both Christians and it’s crucial that we are always reminded to do our best each day to treat others with respect, to demonstrate integrity in our business, and to try and honor God in all aspects of our lives". Andrew and Johan both have a heart for ministry, as well as a passion for fashion. With this in common, in 2003, they decided to launch 3Sixteen with their first official pair of jeans, the SL-100x. As they journeyed into this new chapter of their lives, they dedicated themselves to be on a mission that no matter what, Christ will be at the center of their company. Since then, times have not always been easy, but with the Lord's help they have grown to become a multi-location, thriving brand with a broad selection of jeans, t-shirts, shoes, and much more!
