Sebastien James is more than a label. It’s an American style brand with international roots—and it’s built on the vision of Sebastien Scemla. The iconic men’s line reflects its founder’s deep aesthetic convictions, as well as the mathematical rigor he brings to constructing every detail of every shirt. It’s a formula that results in contemporary, head-turning classics.
Growing up immersed in France’s garment industry gave Sebastien an insider’s education, as he absorbed invaluable knowledge from his mother and grandfather—both steeped in the fashion business— from an early age. Perhaps the most important lesson: design with the consumer in mind, then strive for perfection in every detail.
It’s a lesson he took to heart. A Sebastien James shirt is more than meets the eye—though what meets the eye is stunning. Whether it’s the way a sleeve’s pattern aligns perfectly at the seam or the subtle but memorable detailing under the collar, each shirt is a collection of design elements that reveal themselves with each successive look.
