Proost to the denim Dutchmen of Tenue de Nîmes, Amsterdam’s finest denim store, who proudly kicked off their new year with the drop of a brand-new capsule collection of jeans made with Cone White Oak selvage denim.
The new collection comes with a new fit for Tenue de Nîmes, the Tapio cut, and features a classic relaxed top block with a taper from the knee down. All three styles, rigid, medium and light washes, have been crafted from the same 13.5 oz selvage denim woven on vintage shuttle looms dating back to the 1940s.
The collection is a lovely threesome not only in the jeans themselves, but in their production as well- designed by the Dutch denim devotees, crafted from authentic American selvage denim, and cut, sewn and washed by Italian artisans. In addition the collection comes complete with some lovely features like smooth, flat-felled inseams, selvage fly, stamped pocket bags and Cone Denim White Oak sew-in labels in the waistband so you know they’re the real deal.
