Désiré is the model that reproduces the first pair of jeans ever born in France, in the hands of a Tuffery, the worker’s overpants of the 20th century, worn by miners and construction workers that built the Florac / Sainte-Cécile-d’Andorge train line. You can wear it now with or without straps.
Atelier Tuffery has selected, for this model from the Tailleur range, a rare noble material: a particularly thick artisanal Selvedge canvas, a genuine leather jacron label with vegetable tanning and copper rivets.
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.
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.
