Jacob Cohen Jeans


I was recently introduced to a brand of jeans called Jacob Cohen Jeans that I wasn’t too familiar with before (I have no idea why since it’s been around since 1985). The brand is a genuine Italian company, created in the region of Veneto, in Italy by Tato Bardelle and uses some of the highest quality Kurabo denim, sourced from Japan. One thing that actually sets Jacob Cohen apart from other brands is the fact that they have an environmentally friendly production process, something they take very seriously during the making of their jeans. This also includes not using any chemicals during the dying and washing process of the jeans. How cool is that? Instead, the company washes the jeans with Greek pumice stone to make sure they will hold up well and last a long time, making them worth their price tag, which is around £299 – £599.

After doing some more research on the brand, I found out that when you buy a pair of Jacob Cohen Jeans, they come with an exclusive tracking code which actually allows you to find out any information you would like to know. This includes information on who created your jeans, the details and the whole manufacturing process as well. I think this is a really unique idea and I love it! Being able to find out how your jeans got into your hands is something that I would definitely be interested in! Knowing that they had a life and a story before they hit the shelves!

Like a lot of premium denim brands that have unique washing processes, like with the Greek pumice stone, you wont find two pairs of Jacob Cohen Jeans identical to one another. This means that every pair of their jeans is completely unique, giving you that edge above everyone else. I think if you love raw denim as well, for the idea of the jeans getting better with age and moulding to your body, you will love these too! I’ve heard they are designed to get better and better the more you wear them!

Not only are the details unique with the coding and the individual washes, each pair of their jeans include features like chain-stitched hems, hand-written care instructions, silver plated buttons and pony skin brand labels. You will even get a spool of extra thread in the same colour of the stitches throughout your jeans too! They do make both men’s and women’s jeans, so I have included a few styles below for you to check out, as well as a couple of ad campaigns and close up shots! Have you heard of Jacob Cohen Jeans before? What do you think of them?


These are three of their men’s styles above, in dark blue and a washed black/grey. I think you can see the details incredibly well here, including the barcode, the selvedge, pocket details, lining, unique buttons and more! Speaking of which, how cool are the Jacob Cohen buttons below? They use these as the main closures of their jeans and I love that they are all different!


Here are a couple of their advertising campaigns, from previous collections, and I think they are so inventive. They show off the denim well, but explore the creativity of the brand.

And finally, just below, I’ve chosen to highlight three select styles, each for men and women, from their current collection which is available at the moment. I’m in love the patchwork jeans that they have since that’s a huge trend for Autumn 2014! Which do you like?

    Bought a pair in Brussels and love them. However,mother saleswoman removed all the tags and I assume what was the thread from the jeans. I didn’t realize it until it was too late and I was on flight to the US. Was what she did ok. I would have liked the label. How do you track the jeans as mentioned above

      Hi David, when you say she removed all tags, what was the reason she did that? I’ve not heard of sales assistants removing tags on your jeans when you buy them. Surely that would mean you couldn’t return them?

    The main button of my Jacob jeans fell off and I am wondering if there is a way to get it back on

      Hi, I wouldn’t know specifically, but I would email the customer service for the company (or call them) and tell them this happened. They might know how to fix it or replace it.

        Hi Lorna,

        I am wondering whether you have any further news regarding my query. You think is better to ask the tailor in my neighbourwood what is best to do? I have also sent an email to Jacob Cohën headquarters in Italy but they did no reply as yet, and I’m convinced they won’t any way…

          Hi, so is it the actual main button that has fallen off? Did it come apart and split into 2 pieces?

          • Dimitris Kyriakidis
            October 31, 2017 / 2:01 pm

            No it didn’t split into 2 pieces, it just opened up the fabric and fell off the entire button. I can upload a picture if it is possible.

            • Lorna

              Oh, so the fabric that supports the button has become too big of a hole and the button fell out. I know what you mean. Yes, take this to your tailor. They should be able to stitch up the hole and then stamp the button (or a new one) back in. Good luck!

    I never owned a pair. However I would like to buy the J brand. How does the sizing work. I usually wear a regular size 38 with a tapered bottom. Not too loose not to tight. What style and size would you recomend. do I go up a size or stick with my true size which is 38? thank you

      You might need to get in touch with the brand and ask for measurements. We haven’t tried them. Thanks!

    I have 2 pairs of Jacob Cohen 5 pocket trousers. 1 cotton pair and 1 corduroy pair. They look and feel as luxurious as it gets. I was hesitant about the price until tried them on. Once on I knew I had struck gold finding this brand. I for one will be loyal to Jacob Cohen from now on.
