    3sixteen hit the streets 15 years ago with its unique take on menswear. In recognition of this milestone an extremely special commemorative piece has been commissioned with the 3sixteen x Schott Roughout Perfecto Jacket. Schott supplied the fit and construction, basing the pattern on their classic 519 Perfecto. Horween stepped up to supply the most amazing veg-tanned roughout cowhide which is full grain, waxed and dark as night. The heavy duty hardware is tonal enhancing the clean lines of the design, with one perfect exception – the rear press stud which is a celebratory spark from the silversmiths at Good Art Hlywd in .925 sterling.Lined inside with 100% jet black linen and natural leather branded patch this is a stunning realisation of the levels 3sixteen is now reaching. A genuinely limited edition that will put the ultimate final touch to any outfit smart or casual. Shop 3sixteen x Schott Roughout Perfecto Jacket Rogue Territory has delivered with a new iteration of its 16.75 oz. slub denim. These arrivals are a deep indigo, achieving their depth of colour by utilising indigo dyed threads for both the warp and weft. The resulting textured fabric has been used for their signature SK super slim cut jeans and also for RGT’s take on a type III, which includes gently rounded collars and acorn chest pockets.

    Hey all, Welcome to Rivet & Hide. We are a London based premium raw denim store starting life online with plans afoot for a bricks and mortar home in the future. We offer free shipping worldwide and our UPS account will ensure a fast and reliable delivery around the world. I have been a SuFu member for years sharing thoughts, ideas and countless questions about denim and clothes that are made with heart and soul. This inspired me to set up and finally bring Rivet & Hide to life. Some of the brands will be familiar to you but part of the concept is to bring new and less well known denim producers into the sphere and we have worked hard to get that balance right. It has been a lot of fun meeting many of the people behind the brands and seeing their skills at work. We have clocked up many miles visiting them around the world making new friends along the way. A shorter trip through the Welsh valleys to beautiful Cardigan Bay to meet the Hiut Denim guys was just as rewarding. A special thanks for all the help and support from Giles & Paula at Ironheart UK and Anders Helseth of Steel Feather. We struck gold with a Union Special 43200g which was sourced from California. It’s in mint condition and dates back to 1950. Any hemming requirements can be consummately fulfilled. We have measured all our stock individually. We have not relied on suppliers or anyone else’s measurements. Our HOW WE MEASURE guide is based on BiG (thank you) with the addition of a hip measurement. We offer a 28 day returns policy with full refunds. Shipping included. The launch brands are: Railcar Fine Goods Steel Feather Flat Head Real Japan Blues Hiut denim co Nudie jeans Obbi Good Label. As we go into the Autumn we will be adding to our launch stock including some more great shirts from The Flat Head’s Winter collection, and introducing you to a new Japanese brand. We are planning a launch party hosted by our friends at Kaffeine, Great Titchfield Street, in Central London in the Autumn and will give you the heads up closer to the time. You will be more than welcome to join us. Feel free to ask any questions here or contact us at [email protected] or [email protected] http://rivetandhide.com/

    Forerunners and trailblazers of Japanese ‘Ametora’, Studio D’Artisan has an unrivalled reputation for producing everything from impeccably made basics through to unique, luxury leather pieces. We’re excited to now carry this legendary brand.We have to start with a really special piece, in the shape of the Split Steerhide jacket. Cut to a Type II pattern, this jacket is fully lined and is constructed with a 1.2mm, tan split steerhide – this is a superior cut of leather to standard suede and has an initial stiffness that softens and moulds to the wearer. This is one of those pieces that has a genuine ‘heft’ obvious before you even pick it up. Shop Studio D'Artisan We also start our SDA journey with the blanket lined denim jacket which takes its inspiration from the classic 101 riders jacket . The warmth of this piece belies the lighter weight, although there is no doubting the sturdiness of the construction. Details include Japanese blanket lining, corduroy collar, cast metal placket buttons and resin waist cinches to the rear. For jeans, we have two signature pieces in the SD 103 and SD 107. The 103 is a great example of a true regular, straight cut, while the 107 is a slim cut with a decent taper to the hem.Both use an unsanforised 15 Oz. denim made from a unique blend of American and Australian cotton and both come with all the admired detailing that makes up SDA. Selvedge fly, hidden selvedge to the coin pocket, heavy duty duck pocket bags and SDA branded rivets and buttons all come together to make what is clearly the highest level of denim construction. SD-103 Straight Fit SD-107 Slim Tapered Fit We also had to get involved with one of their special ‘off piste’ releases with the Fox 001. Named after Sally Fox who developed this particular strain of organic, long stapled cotton used in the weft that retained colour without the need for dye, this is environmentally friendly and consciously non synthetic in every way.Coming in at 15 Oz, these have a relaxed, yet slim cut through the top block and thigh and a strong taper to the hem. Completed with a navy selvedge line, dual colour signature arcuates, herringbone pocket bags and a pony hair patch with fox motif. FOX-001 Relaxed Tapered Jeans No arrival from SDA would be complete without some representation from their renowned loopwheeled fabrics. They do this so well and use Tsur-Ami loopwheelers to produce a tightly woven, heavyweight and textured sweat.The inside is triple-brushed for extra warmth and comfort. They come in crew neck and hoody versions. Shop Studio D'Artisan

    It may come as a surprise to those new to 3sixteen or more familiar with the brands sharp cuts and forward thinking styling, that these guys have their roots firmly in the skate and streetwear scene. Never ones to lose sight of where they came from whilst forging ahead, this winters drop really shows how 3sixteen have evolved and refined their concept. The star of the show is without doubt the Panama Cloth Stadium Jacket. The very definition of smart streetwear, 3sixteen have taken their classic stadium jacket, using its popular trimmer cut and next levelled it with an indigo construction.The outer fabric is a 15oz. Italian Panama cloth weave. This heavy cross weave that has been dyed with double indigo (warp and weft) reveals different depths and textures throughout with lighter and darker tones that really pop. The inside is insulated and quilted, while heavyweight varsity ribbing to collar, hem, hand warmer pockets and cuff complete this exceptional piece. Shop 3sixteen Panama Cloth Stadium Jacket The indigo dyed hoodies elevate the current "athleisure" trend to unexpected heights of sophistication. They utilise a super neppy heavy fleece fabric and are comfy and casual with side panelling to maintain the neat silhouette. They come in either a pullover iteration with heavyweight drawstring ties or a double zipped, leather toggle version. Whichever you chose these hit so many nails on the head.We also now have a full restock the shadow selvedge and double black denims in both the slim tapered and classic tapered cuts.

    Everything Nine Lives creates provokes wonder and disbelief. Fabrics you never knew existed, mainly because they didn’t until Nine Lives dreamt them up. Unique cut and designs, that while stunning and different, just make sense. The two latest arrivals exemplify just that, even down to the pure escapism of their names. The Kalamazoo sashiko shirt bridges the gap between shirt and jacket with ease. Neatly tailored with a flattering cut through the body, the 18 Oz. sashiko fabric is the result of 3 ‘fabric scientists’ collaborating under 9L guidance to create this utterly next level weave. The resulting material is then put through a traditional green cast Aizome process (indigo dyeing), producing a depth of colour that just draws you right in. Every detail is considered; from the gentle slope of the chest pockets, to the articulated bellows shoulders and blackened YKK sunburst press studs. We never knew a shirt could be made like this, but are we glad it was. Shop Nine Lives "Kalamazoo" Sashiko Shirt The Sky Valley jacket is another piece the re-invents and re-discovers the joy of garment design. A one of a kind hybrid between a Berwick and a Riders jacket, this piece delivers the best of both - the stylish and smart look of a Berwick combined with the shaping and function of a Riders. The sharp tailoring belies the strength and solidity of this piece - a super sturdy, windproof duck outer is complemented with a faux fur lining within, making this an exceptionally warm solution for something that fits so well and with so little bulk. Storm placket, heavy duty zip beneath over spec press studs, bellows shoulders and elongated curved rear hem all combine for further element protection. As always, Nine Lives allows us a glimpse into a bright and wild future. Shop Nine Lives "Sky Valley " Blackened Indigo Jacket ‘The Man in Black’ is the inspiration for Iron Heart's double black "Johnny Cash" denim western shirt which has just arrived. The 12 Oz. black selvedge denim will fade slowly with age and wear developing character and patina. It comes with IH logo'd permex snaps and black bobbin constructional threads throughout.

Available in classic long sleeve and cut off, where the collar cuff and hem have an unfinished style and exposed seams. Pure Blue Japan Double Face Cut Off Indigo T Shirt Pure Blue Japan Double Face Indigo T Shirt Next up we have an intensely soft and warm wool blend, which allows for some great construction and shaping to keep out wind and draughts while also providing a fluffy inner surface of unsurpassed comfort. The two versions include the crew neck sweatshirt with extra high waist and wrist ribbing, both of which are woven in contrasting directions to prevent rucking up and movement and the Military Crew Henley with a 3 button flat placket, ribbed sleeves and exposed seams.

A comfortable mid-weight option, these 100% cotton flannels have been yarn dyed and cut with a subtle western styling.

    One of the most exciting new season arrivals is full of surprise, hidden details and classic designs reimagined for a modern age. This can only be an introduction to the wonderful world of Mister Freedom. The Cowboy Jacket, Embroidered 301 Okinawa edition is milled in Japan, and the custom fabric at 16.25 Oz. is a left hand twill. Comprising of 50% recycled Okinawan sugar cane fibres and 50% cotton, this denim is unique to both the hand and eye, not to mention renowned for the depth of fading. The ‘Rodeo’ iteration carries a definite 60’s halcyon vibe, enhanced by the 100% rayon embroidery which adorns the rear and really carries it to the next level and beyond. The jacket is also available without the embroidery. Shop Mister Freedom Cowboy Jacket - Okinawa Denim & Embroidered Shop Mister Freedom Cowboy jacket - Okinawa Denim (Without Embroidery) One of the sturdiest and most unique shirts we have ever stocked comes in the form of the ‘San Pablo’ CPO. It is named after the American gunboat in the classic ’66 film ‘The Sand Pebbles’ starring Steve McQueen which patrols the Yangtze River circa 1926.The design is inspired by western military wear which would frequently be repaired and (rebelliously against forces regulations) customised by local tailors. Hence, 100% rayon dragon embroidered ‘Liberty Cuffs’ - a hidden adornment inside the cuffs, concealed rainbow chainstitch, hidden chest pocket and contrast reinforcement patches. More regulation details are included with the vintage uniform reinforced shoulder yoke and USN anchor buttons. Really out of this world in every way. Shop Mister Freedom San Pablo CPO Shirt The general appearance of the Rough Rider Blouse will be familiar to any MF aficionados, based as it is on their classic trucker style. This season's version comes in a 15.5 Oz. New Old Stock Cone Mills denim from the late Cone Mills in Greensboro, NC.The collar has been modified to more closely resemble an early American work blouse, the underside of which is lined with the ‘Okinawa’ sugar cane fabric. The interior has been lined with a discharge printed, Japanese plaid flannel which has been brushed for warmth and comfort. Shop Mister Freedom Rough Rider Ranch Blouse Closing the Mister Freedom show for now, we have theDouble Calico Nixon Shirt. There is nothing quite like this out there. Once again making use of the discharge print and testing the limits that can be reached with this technique, the 5 Oz. cotton twill displays two entirely separate, yet complimentary antique calico patterns - one to the face and one to the reverse. This is a thing of beauty and although loosely based on a work shirt cut is a smart shirt option like no other. Shop Mister Freedom Nixon Shirt - Double Calico

    Now for the drop that we have been jonesing for quite some time - more than doubling our range, we present the latest trinkets, fancies and downright masterpieces from the blessedly mercurial minds at Good Art Hlywd. It is all but impossible to choose standout pieces when the entire collection stands out, so here are the edited highlights encompassing all that’s best of the wild, the strange, the functional and the flippant. You also have a golden ticket to a world of pure imagination, thanks to Good Art's desire and ability to create one off and custom pieces. Want that in 22k gold? Done. Black Diamonds in the Rosette gaps? Of course. One ruby and one emerald for the eyes of Jack Skull? Yours. The only limits are what you can conceive. There is still time for custom orders to be created and delivered in time for you to present as the ultimate Christmas gift so contact us to discuss any ideas. ---------------------- Perfectly showcasing Good Art's ability to add functional movement to what are traditionally static pieces, the Lasso Chain uses the larger of its two Rosette disks as an adjustment method to control the length of the chain. Utterly unique. There are plenty of opportunities for some new wrist action, including the ‘Jack Skull Crusher’ bracelet, where every link is a perfectly formed, miniature skull. A favourite customisation here is to switch one or more of the skulls for a gold version, which is a subtle but decadent touch. For something a bit more in your face and to the point there is the ‘Bear link’ bracelet. Available in different link gauges as you prefer, this a chunkier construction reminiscent of the sort of chain that holds a freighter to a New York dock. Stamped on each outer face with the Good Art logo. Fancy something outré? Of course you do. In that case, the Honey Pot (with spoon) should be just the thing. Channel your inner Victorian salt aficionado, Pooh bear or Jordan Belfort - we won't judge. Good Art affectionately refers to its smaller pieces as ‘Knick Knacks’. A suitable moniker for things which are so fun to mix and match, attaching to them to parts and places you would never expect to see high end, quality jewellery - lace locks, press studs, boutonnieres and of course the range of pendants which are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Proving that they can excel at subtle just as well, the Model 31 Band ring is an exquisite exercise in understated simplicity. Always looking for new ways to allow us to rock the Rosette, we offer a selection of caps, all topped off with the solid silver signature press stud. Let's top it off with a piece that neatly demonstrates the widest range of the superlative skills from Good Art. Intricate design, articulation in all directions - rotational, vertical and horizontal, use of different yet complementary shapes and sizes, featuring a variety of attachment solutions. A design beauty but with function at the very heart of its DNA, its the Barrel Key Chain. We look forward to seeing you in store soon to amaze and delight, hopefully finding or creating that ideal piece you never new existed, whether it be off the shelf or out of the mind.

    The Hawley shirt from Indigofera is a real beauty. Soft but heavyweight in a rich, burnt umber brown, this piece looks great and feels special as soon as you put it on. Heavyweight snap fastenings and a satin lined collar, placket and cuffs all come together to make the complete package. Shop Indigofera Hawley Suede Shirt - Dark Brown This week sees the welcome return of the Fargo shirt from Indigofera, in their new 'Winlock' selvedge. Clocking in at a solid 13oz, the Fargo is designed to be either a stand alone piece or to function as an overshirt or jacket substitute, with a liitle extra room built in to the cut. The sanforized fabric is bursting with texture promising unique fading potential and it has some great finishing touches in the form of heavy duty logo snap fasteners along with riveted cuffs and gusset. Another updated version of an old favourite is the Norris flannel in khaki/charcoal colourway. Using a Japanese, shuttle loomed selvedge fabric creates a soft, comfortable, yet sturdy option. Shop Indigofera Fargo Shirt Winlock Selvedge Shop Indigofera Norris Flannel -Khaki/Charcoal Perfect for changeable climes, the aptly named All-Weather from Moonstar is now available in this effortlessly casual beige colourway. Each shoe is handmade and fired in a kiln at 120 °C (248 °F) for 70 minutes which causes the sulphur mixed inside the raw rubber to chemically react, returning the rubber to its natural elasticity and creating a soft, flexible, and durable sole. The shoe is then waterproof to the level of the rubber, whilst the canvas upper allows the foot to breathe. Sunshine, showers, rain or even snow - no problem for these.We have also replenished our stocks of the All-Weather in Khaki and the lower, gym classics in black and white.

    The Flat Head

    Have you seen the D306 in the Pioneer denim released since you left TFH? The rise is great and there is extra thigh room too. Our RJB (whilst not strictly FH) collaboration was conceived to offer a higher rise compared with their core range. The left hand twill denim is so soft so can be worn super slim in comfort. Then we did the RFR-004 for a relaxed tapered fit but I think you'd favour the RFR-002

    Iron Heart comes through with a truly versatile piece, the IHSH-177. Utilising a heavy duty, 18 oz fabric this can be worn as either a shirt or a jacket according to circumstance. They have taken the much loved silhouette of their classic denim western and transformed it into a CPO with the addition of hand warmer pockets, heavy duty press stud fastening and a twill lining to the cuffs, collar stand and pocket linings. This really will cross the seasons with ease. Shop Iron Heart IHSH-177 18 oz CPO Denim Shirt The Flat Head releases its latest Shinki horsehide Rider's jacket. This custom made leather is a darker shade of black compared with its predecessor. The leather, still a substantial 1.3mm in thickness is slightly more supple than before. Being tea-core with a semi-aniline finish it will age magnificently. The asymmetrical design with D-pocket, cinch buckles, and sateen lining has otherwise not changed. This jacket is a flagship piece of the store and we are thrilled to have it back in stock.We have also restocked the high tapered D306 jean in the Pioneer denim. This fit launched last year has proven popular with its medium to high rise, extra thigh room and slim silhouette from knee to hem.
