Having been a cult brand in the 80s, Chevignon is still a benchmark when it comes to leather garments and embodying the modern-day adventurer. Its traditional expertise, assumed manliness and casual elegance are the legacy of a free and timeless state of mind that makes Chevignon so distinctive today.
Chevignon began, in its early days, by creating the secret of aged leather, a revolutionary technique that would go on to make the brand such a success. Over time, it would develop and come to perfectly master ways and means of crafting, cutting and treating the leather with the sole objective of making a useful garment look good and achieving both style and technical perfection at the same time.
Aged leatherbasic processing of the hide by means of a barrel milling process which splits and cracks the leather in places to give the garment a worn, history-laden appearance.
Washed leather; : treated using water and enzymes on the finished garment, following the assembly process which stiffens and lightly buffs the leather.
Natural leather : untreated and used in its finest form, this type of leather is particularly supple and is soft and oily to the touch.
With a continuous concern for offering garments with plenty of history behind them, particular attention is paid to the various wash effects available on Chevignon jeans, which come in 3 essential fits, namely tapered, straight and regular comfort fit.
A number of different wash effects have been developed in order to reproduce the different levels of natural wear a pair of jeans might endure as accurately as possible. The more worn the fabric, the more time-consuming and labour-intensive it will be to achieve the desired effect and the more valuable and unique the garment will become.
