Tenue de Nîmes x Rogue Territory Broken Twill Jeans

Tenue de Nîmes x Rogue Territory Broken Twill Jeans

A collaboration we feel long overdue, LA denim brand Rogue Territory teamed up with Amsterdam outpost Tenue de Nîmes for a pair of jeans that pay homage to denim legend Wrangler. The jeans are based on the ‘Stanton’ slim-straight fit and are made from a 14oz ‘broken-twill’ from Cone Mills with a ‘double out seam’: two of the most important characteristics of the old Wrangler cowboy jeans. Broken Twill’s a denim weave that’s seldom used these days but the fabric breaks in very nicely and it’s a shame we don’t see more of it. It was originally developed by Wrangler as a solution for the natural habit of a yarn to twist and the thereafter ‘twisting legs’ of jeans.

Travelteq x Tenue de Nîmes Limited Edition Laptop Bag

Travelteq and Tenue de Nîmes have co-created a limited edition Laptop Bag that looks to combine the best of two worlds, as it is made from Florentine Vacchetta leather and a characteristic Japanese selvage Chambray. The leather gets its beautiful deep cognac color thanks to the vegetable tanning process. The bag is fitted with eight compartments, 3 of which are zipped, plus one for a cigar and one for your laptop (max 15 inch). This collaboration is limited to 50 hand-made pieces, produced at the Travelteq factory in Tuscany, Italy.

Nigel Cabourn Spring/Summer 2011 Collection Video

Last year, Nigel Cabourn invited the folks from Tenue de Nimes out to New Castle for a look at the designer’s Spring 2011 collection. The discussion was deep and covered many topics including Cabourn’s search for old designs, materials and fabrics. The hunt led him to this season’s theme: The Submarine. The video below gives us some insight into how the designer created a naval season with a true Cabourn touch.

Tenue de Nîmes Private Label Shirts Spring/Summer 2011

Tenue de Nîmes Private Label Shirts Spring/Summer 2011

Amsterdam’s Tenue de Nîmes has announced the first chapter of a hand-crafted private label. The philosophy behind their private label is simple:

Each Tenue de Nîmes garment will be built in limited, exclusive quantities, under decent, proper circumstances from the best available materials that our supplies can get their hands on.

And from this comes an essential men’s shirt in basic navy, black and white. They were made by a Polish family that has been making shirts for almost 40 years. They’re able to monitor the entire process from raw fabric to final product and their attention to detail shines through. These shirts are delivered in a classic silhouette with a fit that’s as timeless as the design. We can’t wait to see what else they have in store.
