The Secret of Gardeur



 Founded in 1920, Gardeur employs a workforce of some 2,000 and supplies approximately 3,000 customers in 50 countries around the globe. As Germany’s only fully integrated trousers atelier, Gardeur ensures absolutely assured fit, a high standard of craftsmanship and flexible collection control.




At their German headquarters, two in-house creative teams design the pants with a great sense of style, and pattern makers then translate the styles into true-to-size patterns. Seamstresses in the sample-making department always lovingly handcraft the first prototypes.




Gardeur runs its own sewing shops, laundry and quality assurance, because making trousers requires high-precision craftsmanship. All operations are certified and coordinated by Gardeur technicians in the company’s own laboratories – they don’t leave anything to chance. In brief: it is the special creativity and the high degree of skilled trade that has made Gardeur the trouser specialists they are, for over 90 years now!



Now at the end of this season we have selected Gardeur pants for only CAD$ 99!
