The Célestin jeans are wider than the Alphonse – older cut and higher waist – they are more current, necessarily. Its yarn is dyed and spun in France, then cut and assembled at the Tuffery workshop in Florac.
All that’s left is to wear it, as you please, wherever you wish.

Célestin Tuffery, tailor of Florac since 1892, made Yves Saint Laurent’s dream come true before he even dreamed it: he invented the first French pair of jeans. At the beginning of the century, he made the first working pants with canvas from Nimes, the nearby city, 110 kilometres away, for the track-layers working on the Florac-Sainte-Cécile d’Andorge train line.
Since 1892, Tuffery jeans have never stopped being made in Florac, in the Cevennes. Each pair delivered bears a label with the name of the tailor who made it as well as a small thread reel, so you can adjust the leg length to your measures.
