Tenue de Nîmes for Naked & Famous

Tenue de Nîmes has teamed up with the denim-heads at Naked and Famous for a limited run of 24 pairs of jeans in a 13oz green, rope-dyed army repro denim.

With admirable attention to detail, a team of people have gone all out on this project.

Specific attention has been paid to matching the shade of green perfectly.

The mid-green color proved a particular challenge since the dye is very unstable, but the hard work has paid off, giving us a beautiful and truly inspired color.

The production manager of the mill is obsessed with vintage army materials.

He has a jaw-dropping collection of old WW2 army fabrics such as uniforms, tents, tarps, bags from which the color for the warp of this particular denim was chosen.

The pocket lining is made from a fabric called 'Crusader' and is made in Montreal.

It is a rip-stop twill that is usually reserved for the shell of jackets worn by firefighters and military personnel.

The duo logo leather patch is made from 10oz thick natural veggie tanned bridal leather, most often used to make horse saddles.

Every single pair is hand-numbered, signed and shipped in a custom carrier bag with denim belt-loop fastening.

Made in Canada and limited to 24 pairs. See the images.
