Every once in a while a person surfaces, not by accident but by necessity. Action and vision collide for that person, often with the help of outside influences. Jimmy Hankins is such a person. With a single act of creating American-made jeans, the breadth and multifaceted history of Asbury Park is entrenched. His homage to American jean history, mines not for coal, iron ore, nor minerals to inform his talents; it’s the diversity of American culture, the intensity of the East Coast and the cultural depths of Asbury Park.
