I met Sébastien Vietti more than a year ago, when he worked in press relations. The current went very well, so I was delighted to learn a few months ago that he was preparing to launch his brand with friends initiating the project. He boarded together to develop The Human Comedy : aloft brand since its launch, both its products and its universe. And this is what we will see in more detail.
Reinterpretation of the past and brand world
What strikes first with La Comédie Humaine is the care taken to reproduce or divert the universe of Balzac. And it starts from the packaging that goes well beyond the traditional tissue paper.The box is in the shape of a book, and the spare buttons are delivered in an envelope closed by a seal of wax.
Another nice detail, all the products are accompanied by small documentations telling you more about the origin of the engravings or about the details of the life of Balzac … who was not only a writer. Indeed Honoré de Balzac was one of the figures of dandism, whether through his refined way of life or the characters of his novels (Rastignac, Rubembré, De Treilles…). As these images attest:
But back to the mark. The logo is an anthropomorphized cock, which is in fact an old illustration of Jean-Jacques Granville, caricaturist and illustrator of the works of Balzac (but also Don Quixote or Fables of La Fontaine). And we find behind it the parentheses which evidently recall the literary universe of the mark.
Lastly, the creators went so far as to publish their own version of Balzac’s Elegant Life Treatise (it was scarcely distributed any more and rights have now passed into the public domain).
T-shirts of the Human Comedy
These gentlemen of the Comédie Humaine chose to print the illustrations of Granville on tshirts.I could see the screenprints closely and they are very qualitative. The tshirts have a slightly curved, elongated cut, with rather short sleeves to get to mid-biceps (something I appreciate).Last detail that is not one: the opening of the collar neither too tight nor too diving.
The tshirts are (really) made in France (in the heart of the Dordogne) and not only mounted.Even the weaving is done locally in one of the last factories to offer this kind of service in the hexagon. The canvas that emerges from it is actually qualitative, very dense. The final price of 55 € is in our upper limit for a printed tshirt but remains very consistent with regard to the quality of the materials and the finish.
You can find the shirt HERE .
Detachable collar shirt test
Detachable collar. In the past we changed the collars and the cuffs because it was the part that used the fastest (and always ends up rebiquing a bit annoyingly). It is also very practical to clean the shirt and pass the stain removers only where it is needed while rubbing more easily.
And these collars can give very nice effects according to how we wear them and which ones we choose:
Or returning collar: more pointed and without the lack of taste of the polo collar raised.
The passes are sold separately, there is also an infidel kit to change neck when attacking lipstick (see website for explanation ).
But let’s move on to the shirt that is hyper qualitative. First of all at the level of the fit: it is by far the shirt that suits me best among all the ones I have. It is fitted but without feeling cramped. I also love its very light gray color, it can be easily assembled with almost all ( credit photosVide Dressing ).
Tip: If you want to differentiate between mother-of-pearl and plastic, there is only one way, as plastic can mimic natural materials today. It is in fact by touching the buttons that you will realize that mother-of-pearl gives a feeling of coldness on the skin, unlike the plastic that heats up faster on contact with the fingers.
The Human Comedy on the left, and Melinda Gloss (already very good with 6) right.
These fine and close seams are a guarantee of quality because they prevent the fabric bubble even after dozens of washing. As long as you do not put your shirts in the dryer with too abrasive clothes (buttons, big cloths of jeans), well they will run no risk. It is one of the very rare brands to my knowledge that presents all the details of purist.
As for the price of the dress shirt (178 €), it will be beyond what some are willing to put, but will remain legitimate for those looking for the shirt that highlights them or that they go out for big occasions.
Thank you to The Human Comedy , and good luck for the future!
