The PROJET1826 story
The brand name Projet1826 was conceived seconds after both partners Richard Tsen and Alfies Lu decided to embark on their plan to develop their own brand of footwear. As they glanced over to a digital clock that was poised on the table, the time showed 18:26. Et voila! Their project had a name! Projet1826!
Frustrated with the unavailability of such designs, the partners decided take matters into their own hands. They would design such shoes themselves!
After months of intensive market study, designing and sourcing, a new brand of stylish, comfortable, no-fuss-no-frill footwear was born – PROJET1826!
The brand promises to offer the discerning, fashion-forward man (from all ages and lifestyles), a chance to step out in ultra-comfortable style and confidence; Any time, Anywhere.
