Hudson Jeans CEO Peter Kim is keeping an eye on Trump’s policies

His denim brand does most of its manufacturing in Mexico.

Peter Kim’s first introduction to the garment industry came after a panicked phone call from his dad during spring break, when Kim was a student at the University of Southern California. The family business was in trouble and Kim needed to help get it back on track. Now, Kim runs a premium denim company he founded, Hudson Jeans. It’s based in Los Angeles but the denim comes from Italy and Turkey while much of the manufacturing is now done in Mexico. Kim’s paying close attention to what President Donald Trump does next on trade.
