Parisian born Jerome Dahan ventured out to LA in 1981 where he discovered his talent for design. Through the years of working at various denim companies, he searched for something he felt was missing. In addition to the fits, fabrics and washes he wanted to recreate the market and develop the story for the next generation of jean wearers. Jerome conceived the idea that became Seven For All Mankind, a brand that would change the industry.
At Seven, Jerome introduced a new fit that was described as “a sexy universal jean”. He also introduced a new generation of denim fabrics: multi-counts from Candiani and a comfort stretch from Kaihara that allow the jeans to feel and look authentic. However, “no matter how great an idea may be, without the right team and support around you, you will not achieve your goal.”
Unfortunately, Jerome did not find the right team at Seven but took this opportunity to create a new brand, Citizens of Humanity in 2003. In this new stimulating and fun atmosphere, he worked closely with a team of designers to create a better denim that was both more comfortable to wear and more flattering in both styling and fit. And if that wasn’t enough, Citizens of Humanity created an organization called CITIZENSHIP where a portion of their proceeds go to charity.
Citizens are available in three distinct fits: Core Slim Straight, Sid Classic Straight and Jagger Bootcut. So no matter your style, you won’t have trouble finding a pair of these jeans that are perfect for you.
