The famous brand of luxury jeans “JACOB COHEN” was founded in 1985 in Pontelongo (Italy) by TATO BARDELLE.
The name “JACOB COHEN” was therefore born to recreate a story around high-end jeans while paying tribute to JACOB DAVIS (inventor of the rivet and collaborator of LEVI STRAUSS).
NICOLA BARDELLE, Tato’s son, took over the reins of the company in 2002 and developed the brand internationally by setting up shop in the most fashionable boutiques and opening his own boutiques, notably in Saint Tropez, Paris and Milan and more recently in Marbella and Geneva.
The brand has its pieces made in Italy in its factories in Veneto and Sicily using only noble materials such as “Loro Piana” fabrics or even JAPANESE denim selvedges from “KUBARO” or “MAMARATO”.
JACOB COHEN jeans are often blended with elastane, which makes the comfort unbeatable.
Many details make these jeans unique, the material of the buttons (silver and carbon), the cotton pockets with pattern delivered carefully with each jeans in a special pocket allowing the jeans to breathe, the leather plates (skin, crocodile, galucha) signed JACOB COHEN, and for some editions a small bottle of the perfume of the brand and still other details…
For the limited editions, the steel of the buttons is the same as the one used for the ROLEX watch strap, the plates are matched with the silver logo, the denim is all dyed with natural indigo (which makes the fabric more resistant, the washes richer, and the aging of the denim purer).
All Limited Editions have a red selvedge that allows the jeans to be worn with a cuff while keeping a detail on the bottom.
The brand has for years opted for eco-friendly manufacturing processes using as few chemicals as possible.
All these details combined make JACOB COHEN jeans exceptional, the famous slogan of the brand “Go to bed with a dream, Wake up with a purpose”, has been since the beginning of this family success the guiding thread of the brand’s development.
