Shockoe Atelier was founded in 2012 by Anthony and Pierre Lupesco. The Lupesco family has been in the luxury menswear business for over 40 years, having worked with leading European luxury brands such as Ted Lapidus, Isaia and Belvest. Shockoe Atelier builds on the tradition and craft of the great European luxury houses, but with a distinctly American point of view.  They made denim by hand in their Richmond VA workshop.

The jean below is their Classic Kojima jean. The Classic Kojima jean is their classic fit made with a 14.5oz slubby silver cast denim from Collect Mills in Japan. The fit has a higher rise, classic seat and thighs with a slightly tapered leg opening.
