Most beautiful pair of black denim I've ever held in my hands and they're nearly sold out everywhere. I bought these last week and tried them on once only but I'm so sad they don't fit my fat thighs. If anyone knows where I can get a size 32 please tell me.

Cleaning out my closet for stuff I don't get to wear as often! Willing to accept offers.
1. Himel Bros. Brimaco Raider Cafe Racer - $1750 plus shipping
This jacket is absolutely insane. Tagged size 36, fits like S. Made with 100% genuine Shinki tea-core horsehide that will gradually fade from deep black to a gorgeous brown as it ages. Weighs in at around 5 pounds and is built to take an absolute beating. Deadstock Lightning zippers, bi-swing back, and of course the absolutely unparalleled quality that David Himel is known for. If you know leather jackets, then you'll know that this is the creme de la creme. Retails for $2450.
Worn lightly and still has plenty of breaking in left to do. It's a shame that I have to sell this as it's just slightly too small for me. Would totally be interested in trading for another leather jacket of similar quality in a larger size.
Description from Himel's website:
"The Raider jacket is an homage to one of the greatest café racer jackets ever made. Brimaco or British Mfg. Co of Montreal, Canada designed this iconic jacket in the 1950's after attending motorcycle races on the Isle of Man. The jacket has a distinctive British feel with a longer straighter torso and a simple clean back with bi-swing expansion gussets and a long chinstrap. We own so many originals of this great design that it barely required any tweaking, and this model uses our limited supply of original 1950's and 1960's Lightning zippers."
Back length: 26.5"
Front length: 24"
2. The Real McCoy's M-422A Flight Jacket - $1150 plus shipping
Absolutely stunning M-422A flight jacket from The Real McCoy's New Zealand. If you know The Real McCoy's, then you'll know that everything they make is of the highest standards, from the material to the construction. This jacket is made with the finest goatskin and mouton fur and is built just impeccably. Faithful to the original details, but superiorly made.
3. Needles/Nepenthes (Engineered Garments) Horween Shell Engineer Boots, resoled by Brian the Bootmaker - $1500 plus shipping
Needles (Engineered Garments) Engineer Boots made with genuine Color No. 8 Horween Shell Cordovan in tag size 9UK. I'd say they fit pretty TTS, although there is plenty of room for one to wear thicker socks.
These were picked up from the Nepenthes shop located in New York City. Needles is the sister company of Engineered Garments (both owned by Nepenthes). This pair has also been re-soled by Brian the Bootmaker (Role Club) and converted to his signature hand-welt. They're really fresh too - worn under 10 times. Truly an amazing pair of boots. Shell cordovan engineer boots are pretty hard to come by, especially ones made with Horween (most other shell engineer boots are made with Shinki cordovan).
4. The Flat Head 6002W Type II Jacket - $350 plus shipping
Classic Type II jacket by The Flat Head in their Pioneer denim. Gently worn, practically new. Retails for over $500 at Self Edge.
Size: 40 (no such thing as S/M/L)
Front Length: 24.5
Arm Length: 34
Pit to pit: 20.5
5. Evisu No. 2 Type I Jacket - $130 plus shipping

6. Iron Heart Indigo-dyed Waffle Work Shirt (IHSH-96) - $225 plus shipping
Worn a handful of times, not really my style. No damage and in excellent condition. Fits excellent as either TTS or slightly tight as it's a slim fit with a hint of stretch due to the waffles knit pattern, though it's 100% cotton. Shirt is sold out in this size last I checked.
Beautiful indigo dyed waffle fabric that we think will age amazingly
Black cat's-eye buttons
Chain stitch run-off
Triple needle-stitch construction using self coloured needle and red bobbin threads
All felled seam construction
Rinsed, so there should be no appreciable shrinkage
Model Sam wears a Medium, Giles wears X-Large in this shirt (rather than his normal Large)

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. Itâ€™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 elseâ€™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
Real Japan Blues
Hiut denim co
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 Headâ€™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.
