Tomorrow the UK faces a huge decision of whether to remain or leave the European Union.
I am laying the cards on the table here as a small business. Leaving the EU would have a hugely negative impact on us. Rivet & Hide is definitely stronger in Europe. We need to stay in the single market with 500 million of our European friends.

I am disappointed. 


I am from London, and work in IT, so I have seen and experienced firsthand the benefits of what EU brings in some ways such as people, trade, etc. In other parts of the country, people haven't had that opportunity/experience. I cannot comment on people in other parts of the country or industries. I have no doubt that for some people they voted leave because it would genuinely be better for them, and I can respect that. But for people that voted leave, purely because of immigration fears, I can only shake my head.

I'm Jap who just lives in the UK so can't tell them what to do.....just sitting on the fence at the moment.

But I may have to give up my annual holiday going back to Japan this year because of plummeting exchange rate - instead going to Butlins then :wacko:

New arrivals from Stevenson Overall Co include shirt jackets, jeans, shirts and accessories.


You can always count on this brand to deliver a stunning shirt to get you in the mood for summer and the Indigo Flower is no exception.

The yarns used to make this custom fabric were spun on a vintage 1940s machine that gives it a natural uneven texture and two different ways of printing were used to achieve the deep indigo tone. The shirt features coconut buttons.


The Wheeler is a light weight shirt jacket that comes in 2 fabrics. One is a 100% cotton 11.5 oz deep indigo and the other a vintage style sateen cotton fabric of similar weight. The jacket features front pleats overlapped by the western style chest pockets with snap closures. The jacket also has a central pleat on the back.


The Dixon 310 straight fit cinch back jean is new to the store and contains some truly impressive construction details. This includes a combination of lock stitching and narrow width flat felled seams. Instead of the contemporary bar tack stitching, the pockets are reinforced with decorative stitch work. The denim is sanforized and 13.5 oz in weight.


Slim fitting loopwheeled T shirts come in a white body and blue logo print or indigo dyed with chest pocket.

New large bandanas come with a classic in red or indigo. The Tube socks are made from a slub yarn linen to provide a comfortable and breathable fit.

New in from the purveyors of understated, quality, styling, UES have delivered some great pieces in time for the summer.
Firstly, the Ramayana crew neck T shirt â€“ white or black. With a right hand chest pocket these are an easy ‘go to’ staple, either to be worn as a standalone on a sunny day or as a layering piece under a shirt. Just the right side of heavyweight for the warmer weather, these 100% cotton T’s feel sturdy whilst keeping a super soft hand. Add to that the impeccable fit that UES are renowned for and you have a great, no nonsense classic T.

For holidays and other occasions where it is just TOO hot for jeans (We don't recommend such climes) UES have provided a great alternative in the form of their green/indigo/mustard plaid shorts. Neatly avoiding the budgie smuggler vs nu-metal mid shin length extremes, UES have cut these to sit just above the knee making them the ideal choice to go from beach to bar to town. The button fly is fully concealed (including top button) behind the placket, and the rear has both a cinch back and ‘notch’ in the middle of the waistband to provide a comfortable and fitted shape.

With two hand pockets at the side seams, two rear pockets (buttoned) and a front coin pocket (also buttoned) they also provided plenty of safe places to carry any valuables when wearing less clothing. Perfectly thought out, designed and executed.

The UES chambray shorts are equally as good. They come with zip fly, cinch-back and 5 pockets. Particular standout details are the "Boro" linings for both waistband and pockets.

The new UES indigo dyed chore coat/jacket in a 60% cotton 40% linen mix. This deep indigo fabric is full of character and is all but guaranteed to age and fade beautifully. These buttons can also be removed or swapped as they are attached with wire loops to the rear. Includes two outside pockets to the lower front and one large inside pocket top right.












Shop UES Denim/Linen Work Jacket


The 400T jeans have been restocked in all sizes. Constructed from 14.9oz of Zimbabwe cotton, these jeans are renowned for both their vintage fade potential and for having the ideal cut for anyone in need of a little extra room through the thigh whilst maintaining a decent taper for a trim, modern silhouette. This faded pair has been worn by a customer of ours for around 10 months.See more faded jeans in the Fade Archive on the website http://rivetandhide.com/fade-archive




Shop UES 400T Straight Tapered Jeans


Also available, new bandanas. Available in red or blue with a geometric print and at 67cm x 67cm,  these are a cut above your usual bandana. Ideal for use as a neckerchief or head scarf, or even wrapping up your beach essentials for your trip to the shore.

Also restocked are the work caps in denim or chambray, the perfect complement to a beach or sunny day outfit.

The Hawley shirt from Indigofera is made using the softest, most velvety suede you can imagine but with weight, heft and solidity.

The term ‘buttery soft’ is bandied about a lot with regards to leather and suede but this material truly justifies the description. It has style. Western cut – subtle, not overly ‘cowboy’.The collars, cuffs, placket and upper back are lined with super smooth black satin. 

The shirt features black snap closures.

Pure Blue Japan uses natural indigo harvested in the Tokushima prefecture of Japan to hand dye the 13.5 oz slim tapered AI13-TSM jeans.

Tokushima indigo is protected under Japanese law as a part of the country's cultural heritage and only a handful of craftsmen and women are certified to work with it. The indigo plant leaves used to produce this precious "Awa-ai" dye are first dried and fermented then mixed with lye and other components in the vats. This is all done by hand, a slow and laborious process, but the results are exquisite.

The combination of this unique technique and PBJ's textured denim results in a jean that is imbued with indigo like no other. It's a slow release fade and all the more beautiful for it.

The KS-013 is a new denim from Pure Blue Japan known as "knubbed" selvedge and it literally blew us away when we first saw it in Japan. It has a super irregular weave that results in a highly textured denim that fades with striking contrast. Several shades of indigo are used in the rope-dyeing process which serves to underscore the amazing character of the fabric itself. 16 oz denim is a perfect weight for those who want to dial up from a typical 13-14 oz mid weight denim without venturing into the realms of the super heavy 20 oz offerings. There would be no better way of doing so than with the KS-013.

We have also restocked the slim straight X005 jean in Pure Blue Japan's signature 14 oz denim along with the short sleeve and long sleeve indigo Henleys.

Last week we released the Dawson Denim x Rivet & Hide custom slim tapered fit using a 14.25 oz Japanese sanforized selvedge denim.


This is the first slim tapered cut from Dawson utilizing all their know how, skill, passion, vintage machines and some requests and contributions from our end! We really couldn’t be happier with the result. A smart silhouette is complemented by the subtle detailing that Dawson are so well known for – stone coloured core spun thread for the stitching, copper branded rivets and washers, two prong nail fly buttons and a selvedge fly. This is all topped off with a chrome leather patch hand branded with the Dawson Denim and Rivet and Hide logos.

Along with a full size restock of the Colour 8 CXL Service Boot, Boondockers in both leather & Dainite soles we have a brand new arrival from Viberg which looks set to quickly earn its place with aficionados of the brand or indeed anyone with an interest in high quality footwear.

Adopting the 1035 last (slightly rounder toe box with a little more width through the sole in comparison with the 2030 last), this is a Derby, based on a traditional English hunting boot, in a beautiful Aged Bark rough out leather. Using a Goodyear natural flat welt construction and featuring a partially structured toe, the 6-inch pattern used is slightly taller than the Service Boot and utilizes an interlocking eyestay with a 360 degree vamp for increased waterproofing. The tongue is flipped – smooth on the outside and rough out inside creating a subtle but appealing contrast.
