A French denim, born in 2018, from the collaboration between Tuffery and his weaver from the Lot, here, a solid twill (12.5 Oz) that combines a white cotton thread, and a blue woollen thread (that of the Merino sheep of Arles, 45%), the closest to the skin, which gives this fabric a comfort and softness that pure cotton denim does not have. Finally, for the connoisseurs and the curious, let us recall that denim fabric associated, in its origins, a silk thread with a woollen thread.
The Alphonse Merino wool and cotton Jean brings us once again closer to a local and ethical perfection.
Alphonse is Atelier Tuffery’s universal cut, neither too tight nor too wide, with a standard size (understand, neither high nor low), it fits almost everyone, in almost all circumstances.
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.
