  1. Tender Co. Denim

    A GS/TP watch review! in Japanese, this reviewer has also covered various Tender products in the past, and he does other really nice things too.
  2. Tender Co. Denim

    Here's a little further down the road: And here are some boots (the car keys that were on the ring were left with the airport parking company): Thank you so much for the photos- a lovely selection of clothes and accessories, and it's really great to know that things are being appreciate and enjoyed.

    ^fantastic! thank you so much for posting these, really appreciate it. I love the leg twist, pocket/yoke fades, and the faded selvage on your jeans. Great selection of collars, too :-)

    apologies for the long space between news- this is my busiest time as the next production starts to come through and various other projects take shape. More of all of that to come in the next few weeks, but in the meantime I just received some lovely product photos from Unionmade of their in-season delivery: more soon!

    I think I mentioned a few pages back that I've been working on some Tshirts with Christopher Brown, a linocut artist who was one of my tutors at Central St Martins, and who did some Tender Tshirts when I was first starting out. These are in his name, as part of a new project called 'aT' (for about time, but also a T, geddit?!) There are other projects with other artists in the work for future, but these shirts are now in various shops in Japan, including Beams, Loftman and Diaries. Images are taken from Chris's Alphabet of London, with the letter of the alphabet on the back. Diaries have also commissioned a new shop bear logo and letter set from Chris :-)

    thanks so much pitman, really appreciate your kind words, and I'm delighted you like the keeper buckle belt! Most of the things, (including jeans cuts) are quite esoteric, so not everything's for everyone, but with such a small scale I feel like it's more interesting to stick with what makes sense to me, and follow experiments and technical opportunities, rather than try to predict what will be popular, or go for standard cuts.

    ^thanks. Here you go, fried eggs dial on worn-in tan 2-piece strap:

    ^thanks for this. It's definitely a close call- the black watches are indeed delivered on a fabric nato (polished steel come on a bracelet), but I think they're very nice on leather too. Redragon's strap is brand new, and it takes a bit of time for the leather to settle around the lugs. Mine's had a little bit longer I think, although it'll mould further with some more time. I'll try to post an update. These leather natos are the thickest option, as they have two thicknesses of leather behind the watch. There are also 2-piece straps (with no leather behind the watch) and pull-through straps (1 layer behind the watch). Speaking of which, I never put pictures up of these pull-through straps, which are a new style. I think they came out nicely!

    Looking good! Funny, I just changed my GS/TP over to a nato last week. Trade Pattern dial on a tan oak bark strap:

    Speaking of wear, here are Deborah's 130s, entering retirement: And their successor, same rinsed 130s size 2 (with an indigo bicolore canvas double fronted butterfly jacket):
  11. Tender Co. Denim

    Really pleased you like them! Fit's great in WAYWT too :-) Here are some jeans a little further down the line- ecru barge canvas 132s, worn hemmed and repaired by SF artist and great friend of the brand Jason Jagel. Worn in the studio, painting murals, and fixing a roof:

    ^thanks. I really appreciate your interest, and I'll pass it along. Whooper's a slightly different setup to Tender- production isn't my decision (that's with Akira, in Tokyo) and the production scale is quite a bit larger than Tender. For Tender I can make a pattern myself, delivery the fabric by car and slot 4 pieces into the production schedule. For Whooper we have to work to minimum orders, for sewing and also fabrics and trims. I'll certainly let you know though- I'd love to see these jackets, and various other ideas, in production, but for now it's just the four core jeans styles.

    Thanks for asking- actually I leant this to a shop in Japan for a while, and I only got it back a couple of weeks ago. It's been too warm to wear it since, so there's not a lot more wear on it than last time. I'll certainly keep you up to date! I'll try to get some wear updates of other things before too long. This is really exciting! Thanks so much for all the photos. Your socks look great Here's another personalisation- Tudor just sent me these photos of a couple of garments he's had altered: Type 921 Edited Tail Jacket khaki dyed linen insulating twill, with reversed khaki dyed denim pockets. These have been bluffed on (sewn on from the inside), which is a really tricky technique, but looks lovely and clean, and really works on this jacket I think: Type 110 Drawstring Pyjama Trousers, walnut dyed wool-cotton striped calico. These have got really nice bias-cut bellows pockets, in the same fabric, but undyed: It's so rewarding seeing people's adaptations and alterations of clothes, and how they change beyond their original designs. Many thanks Tudor! More soon.

    Here are some great images from Neighbour, in Vancouver. They always do beautiful photography, and these show things particularly well I think. Anything not Tender in these pictures is Margaret Howell or Niuhans.
