    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/

    Fleurs De Bagne was the code name for French prisoner tattoos from the early 20th century and takes its inspiration from military and maritime work wear from the same period. We are truly happy to introduce FDB to our stores for SS19. The brand feeds into a strong history of rebellion and revolution. Its love of beautiful fabrics, hand-dyeing with indigo and sub-cultural reference is imaginative and evocative and truly delights in this digital age. All garments are proudly made in France. ‘Le Falot’ is a heavy duty 100% cotton waterproof waxed jacket in a wonderful forest green with a camel lining sourced from Millerain, British experts in waxed canvas fabrics. Raglan shoulder, storm flapped upper back, high neck with throat latch and reinforced elbows make this a superlative element battling piece. The Tataouine shirt is inspired by a French prisoner shirt worn in the 1920's/30's. This pullover, pea-collared shirt is available in two iterations. One comes in a camel, water repellent cotton fabric by Millerain, whilst the other in a 100% linen fabric which boasts the unmistakable variations in tone that can only be achieved by hand dyeing with indigo. This is classic yet unique styling. Inspired by an old vintage boxing sweater "Le Cogneur" literally translates as "troublemaker". This is another beautiful example of hand dyeing techniques. The relaxed cut and raglan short sleeve deliver the punch to this piece. Bringing the traditional tattoo designs to life are the tubular knit T-shirts. Supremely soft ecru tone cotton and original artistry make the ‘Beaux Rêves’ and ‘Eagle’ real statement T’s. Shop Fleurs De Bagne

    Five years ago we took our passion-project online business and rebuilt it—out of brick and mortar—in Central London. In tandem, we built a community whose obsession with the very best of luxury menswear has established us as one of the most unique independent clothing stores in the capital with a reputation for quality and service that we are truly proud of.This Saturday 23rd March we will open the doors to our second store—in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. This has been a dream of ours for some time and on a wet autumnal afternoon last year we found the perfect location at 59 Thomas Street. We are excited to be able to bring the best in denim, leather, jewellery, and shirting that the world has to offer to this great Northern city rich with its own heritage and strong cultural identity. We look forward to putting faces to well-known names as well building a new community of equally passionate customers.In a few weeks’ time we will hold a proper opening party at the store and will send out details in due course. But the shop doors open 10 am this Saturday. We look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones.

    With spring on the way Rogue Territory & 3sixteen come in strong with their seasonal offerings for SS19. The Explorer jacket from RGT comes in a waxed, deep olive 8 oz. US canvas. Clean lines and a raglan shoulder set the style, whilst a removeable hood along with dual handwarmer/gusseted pockets provide the function. Designed to work just as well on the streets as in the backwoods, water resistant and windproof, this is truly a piece for transitioning the seasons. For a lighter weight option the Drifter jacket comes in a classic olive camo. Showing a texture all its own, the 100% cotton Japanese sateen fabric bridges the shirt/jacket gap comfortably. It comes with curved hem, reinforced elbows and a horn button double placket closure. New to the scene are RGT’s Boarder pants. Designed to be worn as your comfy pants, the Boarders sacrifice nothing in style to provide this, in fact quite the opposite. Available in either a technical lightweight, 100% cotton, resin finished ripstop or a 9 oz. 2x1 weave indigo neppy denim. Both have slash side pockets and button fly closure whilst the Ripstop has the addition of two waist cinches and the Neppy comes with a braided rope drawstring.

    Rivet & Hide is opening up North! Over the last 7 years, we have evolved from an online store to a bona fide, brick-and-mortar shop. For 5 years, our London store has become a destination for rare denim and classic casual wear of unsurpassed quality for locals and out-of-towners alike. So we’re happy to announce that in March we’ll be opening our second store in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The Northern Quarter is a proud nod to Manchester’s rich heritage and strong, cultural identity. We honestly can’t think of a more fitting place to set up shop. We would like to thank all of our customers, past and present, near and far, for helping us to make this happen. We’ll see you up North. On that note, we’ll be looking to fill our ranks at the new store. If you have any experience in luxury retail sales & a true understanding of hospitality, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.

    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.

    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
