Considered our Alpha garment, this is the original Mancini jean – often imitated but never replicated.
When Mancini set out to create a jean that was stylish yet comfortable and durable, we finally achieved close to perfection with this truly fantastic garment. After years of experimenting with various compositions of denim, we finally settled on a mix of 98% cotton 2% elastane. This unique makeup resulted in a hardwearing denim, allowing flexibility for day to day movement.
A medium stone wash fading is applied to the garment after construction is finished, resulting in a casual yet sophisticated look. White stitching, a combination of blanket and single stitch, works in complete harmony with the stone wash fading. No detail has been overlooked, right down to the buttons and rivets, which have been stylishly embossed with the Mancini crest. Even the vibrant red lining has been treated with respect, and the Mancini shield emblem has been applied using cutting edge laser printing technology to ensure longevity and reduce fading after washing. This truly is that old-favorite-jean by which all other future jeans will be measured.
Top favourite with 3 times world super bike champion, Carl Fogarty.
This garment is hand made by a family business in the Vila Seca region of Portugal, an area renowned for its textiles heritage. Jose and son Paulo have dedicated their lives to producing the most exquisite jeans in the world, and we are fortunate to have them working closely with our design team to help realise the Mancini vision of creating ‘The Perfect Jean’.
All of Mancini’s garments are manufactured in Europe, as we believe in two fundamental objectives: the first is sourcing the finest manufacturers in the world, and the second is supporting the European economy. Luckily for us, Europe is second to none when it comes to skills in textiles production. Europe is to fashion what Leonardo Da Vinci was to artistry. If there is one thing we have learnt here a Mancini, it’s that there is a constant belief that beats in the heart of every European manufacturer worth their salt, and that is ‘quality, quality, quality!’.
