MASTER TAILOR'S TIP
Discover the shirt
Master tailor Norbert Tuffery shares his maintenance tips.
“Before being sold, all our products are washed in France without the addition of environmentally harmful products.
The first time you put on your new jeans, they should feel a bit tight because our high-quality fabrics are a little stiff at first. They will relax over time and the less you wash your jeans, the more beautiful they will be in the long term.”

A LEGACY OF WORKWEAR
It was 125 years ago when Célestin Tuffery decided to offer workers ingenious and comfortable clothing, giving birth to French jeans. Robust over-trousers, practical dungarees, a protective jacket… This workwear of yesteryear has now been reborn and while it can still fulfil its primary function, it pays homage in style to the craftsmen, icons of French know-how, who once wore it.
“Some of our pieces have a name directly drawn from the area that serves as a natural setting for our workshop. Located for 125 years in the heart of the Cévennes National Park, we create our clothes between the Cévennes valleys and the Grands Causses, which offer us daily inspiration.”
Causses are arid landscapes formed in the Cévennes, a set of high limestone plateaus dating mainly from the Jurassic period. Highly characteristic of our landscape, they inspired us to create this grandfather collar shirt, similar to the work tunic worn by people in the region.
