Le Jean was born from a vision to create beautiful vintage button fly jeans in pure indigo cast denim with quality stretch technology. Drawing inspiration from her British roots, industry veteran Charlie Gay blends European edge with California ease to cast a modern take on vintage denim. The collection is made in Los Angeles using ethical and sustainable manufacturing methods*. Le Jean uses handmade buttons from Italy, sand washed leather backpatches and silk pocketing to create a premium jean with luxury details.
*To minimize its environmental footprint, Le Jean uses laser and ozone machines to reduce water usage and energy consumption. Le Jean labels and hangtags are also made from recycled materials."
