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.
