Red and black checkerboard background featuring the logo of the Canal Jean Company
A New York landmark since 1973, the Canal Jean Company is considered a famous New York institution. Known for their checkerboard logo, the company operated two stores at one point, with one located on Canal Street and the other being in the Soho area of Broadway. Deemed as the city of New York's largest provider of jeans, the franchise was considered an iconic institution in the city and provided New York shoppers with hundreds of different styles and brands of jeans. Though both stores did eventually go out of business, merchandise, specifically their buttons, remain popular.
