Citizens of Humanity
About the brand
- premium denim
- utmost comfort
- Los Angeles
Citizens of Humanity is a premium denim label, based in Los Angeles, that was founded by Jerome Dahan in 2003. Inspired by his favourite movie ‘Armeggedon’, he came up with the name ‘Citizens of Humanity’, based on the idea of being a good citizen and doing good in business. As of today, Dahan’s ethos is woven into the roots of the company: social awareness and luxury denim can exist together. With a new CEO, Amy Williams, authenticity and a sense of ease are still at the foundation of the denim label. This results in impeccable fits crafted in authentic fabrications and washes, providing men and women with the utmost comfort and confidence.

...read more Each pair of jeans passes through the hands of at least forty skilled craftsmen before ending up in your wardrobe. The process of making Citizens of Humanity jeans is entirely vertical integrated, which means that they have their own sewing and laundry facilities in Los Angeles and Turkey, giving them complete control over the quality of their denim. It starts with the design, followed by the sewing, then the jeans are washed and dyed, leading to the finishing touch: each pair is hand-inspected by a quality-control specialist.
