309_FrontRoomToRetail.jpgNamed in honor of one of America’s greatest contributions, Miner49er, a retail concept store/museum, will definitely satisfy even the most demanding customer. Showcasing premium selvage denim from both Denim Design Lab in California and Bzen of Montreal, the store is focused on reviving the hardwearing construction techniques of the original jeans of 1849. Housed in a historic 1920’s building, rumored to be the 3rd building built in San Clemente, the store will also contains small permanent museum focused on the history of denim, dating back to the California Gold Rush. The Mecca of denim? I’d say so! –Andrew Mukamal
