Custom fit off the rack

apologies to your tailor

Inside the Atelier

Nelle Atelier jeans are designed to be worn off the rack, no trip to the tailor required. Finding the perfect fit for shorter bodies is about more than just an inseam — it requires bespoke knee placement, hip placement, and rise to look just right. There's a reason good jeans were hard to find, until now


the claire

Give any outfit a slouchy ease with our most relaxed fit. Designed with a mid-rise and full-length leg, they look just as natural with a sneaker or a heel.

the kate

Our most-requested style, now in your perfect length. Starting at the waist, the stovepipe shape creates a clean line right to the top of the foot for a miles-long look. The Italian-woven denim is hand-stitched in LA with a hint of stretch.

the laura

Play up proportions with this elegantly voluminous style. Designed to hug the waist and hit the floor, the 100% cotton, Italian-woven denim only gets softer and more fluid with wear. Size up for a baggier, more casual look.


the léa

The jeans your favorite heels are yearning for. Our interpretation of the classic 1970s style sits right at the waist and was designed to stop right before the floor, showing just a peek of shoe.
