If you have ever coveted Real Japan Blues incredible mid-weight 14 oz left hand twill denim made with Zimbabwe cotton that fades like nothing else, and like a slim tapered mid-rise fit with subtle details such as indigo arcuates on the back pockets, then look out for our collaboration jean which we launch next week.


Real Japan Blues is the sister company of The Flat Head. It is a brand that obsesses over every detail of style and quality in equal measure.

It’s time to stock up on those autumn favourites and get the layers you know you’ve been missing through T shirt season. We have you covered right from the start as we kick off this first big autumn drop with some real classics.


If you’ve had a Flat Head Block Check Flannel before then you already know how good they are. If you are new to The Flat Head and are wondering what all the fuss is about, then this is an ideal opportunity to find out. Made from 100% cotton selvedge, woven on shuttle looms and brushed on the inside, this version in midnight blue/black ticks all the boxes for an impeccably fitted and crafted heavyweight flannel to see in the winter. 


NB. These shirts are now available in size 48

The Iron Heart N1 deck jackets are back.  You’ll have to move fast to snap up one of these as their well-deserved reputation ensures they do not hang around for long. It’s easy to see why; Iron Heart keep the style clean and functional with no unnecessary branding or graphics - along with the construction and materials this creates an unbeatable piece.

Whipcord cotton outer, knitted storm cuffs, long pile Alpaca lining (even in the handwarmer pockets), quilted satin lined sleeves, heavy duty zip & button placket and a throat latch all combine to ensure maximum warmth, wind resistance and comfort in all but the coldest climes. If you only buy one winter jacket – make this it.  You will thank yourself we promise.


Available in Brown, Black & Khaki.

No cold weather clothing drop would be complete without more legendary Iron Heart UHFs (Ultra Heavy Flannel) Two old favourites are back : red/black and purple/black.

Constructed using the super soft, super strong and super long staple Aspero cotton, these shirts are brushed once on the face and then twice on the inside. This process imbues the 12oz fabric with a superior level of warmth and insulation – not to mention comfort. Being single, double and triple stitched ensures that its strength matches its softness. Perfect to last you through the coming winter and beyond.

Our long awaited collaboration with Real Japan Blues has landed. Using the much prized 14oz left hand twill Zimbabwe cotton famed for its character, texture and vertical fading properties, we have constructed a fit loosely based on The Flat Head 3002, one of our biggest sellers in store. Listening to feedback and customer requests, we slimmed down the taper through the lower leg. Once tamed, these are REALLY going to show some honeycombs.

The result is a sharp, super slim silhouette with a rise that some will find more comfortable than the lower rise usually found on slimmer cuts. With subtle toned down details such as indigo arcurates, black veg tanned deer leather patch and RJB crossed swords embroidered logo on the rear pocket the overall impression is exactly as we had hoped and planned for. We know you will enjoy wearing these as much as us and as much as we enjoyed creating them.

The jeans are available both raw and in one wash versions.

Loving seeing the right-sided leg twist on these left-hand-twill denim.  Looks great, guys!  Makes me wish I was close enough to try them on - any thoughts about a Rivet & Hide USA store?  ha ha.


It's great having an ever increasing reach online to USA but I think Self-Edge has not only got it covered stateside but does a great job at it too. I'd fancy my chances with a second store closer to home. Nice of you to suggest it.

It's awesome to hear these shirts are coming in a size 48.  The fabric and quality on the Flat Head shirts are second to none.  My only wish is that the shoulder measurements were not so wide.  I feel their shoulder measurements are too wide when matched to their chest measurements.  The shirts are still wearable and look good but I feel the fit specs on the Iron Heart shirts have a better overall balance.  This new midnight blue color looks really nice.

Rogue Territory joined us earlier this year and we were exited about the FW16 delivery to get the blanket lined waxed canvas Supply Jacket on our rails. This classic core RGT piece uses a 100% wool lining from the Faribault Woolen Mills in the USA. The outer shell is made from a 10 oz American waxed canvas in field tan. RGT nails both fabric and fit with this classic jacket. The just get better looking with use.

Now available online and in store is the Iron Heart Indigo Corduroy Western shirt. The rich indigo and corduroy texture are a unique but in our opinion totally winning combination. This is definitely going to be one of those wardrobe items that will look amazing with months and years of wear. The shirt features diamond shaped black and silver coloured snaps, chambray lined collar, cuffs and chest pocket flaps, felled seams and indigo needle yarn that will fade over time.

The classic indigo selvedge denim western by Iron Heart has been released with dark navy tonal stitching which gives the shirt a clean minimalist look. It uses the same 12 oz denim as the IHSH-33. This "stealth edition" (IHSH-33-T) features black logo'd  permex snap closures, felled seams, selvedge side gussets and chain stitch runoff.

Apart from great company there are a few things that can enhance the comfort of any relaxing experience. A cold beer or a glass of fine wine in the comfort of your own home. A movie on the sofa. Good music at an outdoor venue. An absorbing book. Spectacular surroundings. A campfire. A sunny day at the beach. A sunset over a favourite view. There is something else that you might not have thought of that will contribute to and improve ALL these circumstances – a blanket of the finest Norwegian wool from the guys at Indigofera.

We are both proud stockists and owners of these blankets and have been waiting with great anticipation for this seasons releases. The new iterations have a strong connection to the ‘Old West’, with fantastic names that are just as evocative of a time and place as the images themselves – ‘Thunderbird Mesa’, 'Hassock Falls’, ‘Eagle’ and ‘Sheridan Lake’, to name but a few.

With this in mind it is with great pleasure that we celebrate the arrival of the new season's editions with a special event at our Windmill Street store on Wednesday 19th October from 7pm until 9pm (ish).

Mats – the owner of the brand – will be here to give a short talk regarding the process of construction and the inspiration behind the designs, and to share his knowledge and passion with all those who have an interest in quality clothing and textile craftsmanship. So come and join us for an evening of denim, blankets, stimulating conversation and of course, beer. We look forward to seeing you, both new friends and old!

Just let us know you are coming with a brief email with names to [email protected]






Thunderbird Mesa




Hassock Falls




We will leave you with these words from Mats:

"A blanket from the craftsmen at Indigofera is, besides a beloved friend that will age and gain patina through years of use, a handcrafted design piece that will add personality and colour to any home, couch, motorcycle or indeed, horse!

Indigofera's wool blankets are made by a Norwegian woollen mill that has been weaving high quality wool products since 1940, building on a local tradition that goes back centuries.  Selected wool from Norwegian sheep and 100% Norwegian production has earned them a reputation as one of the most renowned woollen mills in Europe.

Norwegian sheep graze on clean, fresh mountain pastures, making their wool pure and more environmentally-friendly than most textile fibres. This, in combination with the flexibility and insulation properties that are naturally developed in sheep that dwell in the cold Norwegian climate, is a fundamental reason for the superior quality and functionality.

Light up a bonfire, bring your blanket on a road trip or simply sit down and enjoy an old record in your favourite chair... the blanket is big enough to cover both yourself and the experience."

Any fade pics of the PBJ collaboration out there? Been a year since they come out so must be some pairs with some wear and tear showing?

Mine are back in rotation now he weather's cooling but these guys are tough as nails just starting to show a little wear and indigo loss.

Today sees the launch of the first autumn 16 drop from 3sixteen and it is one of our favourite collections to date.


The fatigue overshirts come in hefty Japanese loomed fabrics in a navy herringbone and frogskin camo (with desert camo interior) The shirts can be layered and can serve as a jacket. They feature 2 chest pockets with buttons plus a pen pocket by the left hand pocket and the signature crosscut yoke design on the back.


The crosscut flannel is back in a very mellow black ombre. The Japanese milled 100% cotton fabric is brushed once on the face and the shirt has 2 angles chest pockets.


3sixteen has teamed up with Chup Socks of Tokyo whose speciality is flat-seamed socks created using a unique hand-linking machine and famed for its colourful designs. This version uses a mixture of colours including natural indigo.

Indigofera's Japanese Gunpowder Selvedge denim is popular in whatever iteration and we're sure that the Kyle Sherpa jacket will be a hit in this fabric. This is a cross between a short Ranch jacket and a Trucker jacket.
The garment features two outer chest pockets Type 3 style and is lined with a traditional sherpa lining for warmth in the colder months.

We have received two brand new jeans from Pure Blue Japan, a pocket tee and two beautiful shirts that combine its unrivalled prowess in intricate fabric development and indigo dyeing.

It's only when you look close that you see the Boro patch work design of the Woven Jacquard Patch shirt with the different weaves and textures. It has been indigo dyed - the PBJ way - and is destined to look amazing with plenty of wear.

Earlier this year we introduced the remarkable 18 oz. selvedge denim from Pure Blue Japan in the slim tapered fit. It is now available in the slim straight  XX-18oz-005. This is a dialled up version of the signature 14 oz denim with turbo-charged slubbiness. It has tonnes of texture. You can literally see the indigo clinging to the yarns when you hold this fabric up to the sunlight.

PBJ has introduced a new "vintage denim". The VTG is lighter in colour, similar to raw denim from the 1970s.
The fabric is 14oz in weight, smooth rather than slubby. There is plenty of texture in this neppy weave with different shades of indigo already alive on the surface straight off the loom.

We are offering this denim in the XX-003-VTG. This is PBJ's regular/straight fit.

This season sees the indigo plaid Cody shirt release using a 100% cotton fabric in an indigo plaid and very soft but durable seersucker weave. We have also restocked the original denim version.

Continuing with the autumn/winter drops we have new pieces from the best of the brands with a more urban slant. Both take their inspiration for quality, style and construction from the past, while keeping an eye clearly on the present – 3sixteen and Rogue Territory.
First up from RGT we have the blanket lined canvas trench. Using a 10 oz. water repellent canvas and incorporating a wool lining with blanket stitch detailing, this ¾ trench sits mid-thigh giving a smart silhouette. The sleeves are satin lined and the jacket features a button vent to the rear and covered front placket. Four pockets – two inside, each containing a smaller concealed pocket – and two outside, welted, with storm flaps that can be tucked inside for a sleeker look. This is a smart, stylish, yet fully functional piece to deal with the wet and the wind.

A straight up classic is RGT's  blanket lined Ranger jacket. Made from a 14.5oz Nihon Menpu selvedge denim in indigo the â€˜ranger’ style jacket  (inspired by the Baracuta G9)  is topped off with an exclusive 100% wool lining from the Fairbault woolen Mills in Minnesota. This blanket lining continues into the handwarmer pockets, while the sleeves are lined with black satin. The perfect coming together of the best of Japanese and American fabrics & know how.

Following on from the insanely popular ‘work’ version, The Flat Head Blue/Black block check flannel is now available in the western cut which is slightly trimmer through the waist with angled shoulder/back seams, diagonal pockets and mother-of-pearl snap fastening. Shuttle-loomed and brushed on the inside, this heavyweight cotton flannel is a great way to stay warm and comfortable in style.

From 3sixteen we can introduce the olive hunting shirt. Inspired by heritage details, it keepings such features as the flat rear yoke, large placket covered front pockets and metal buttons throughout. This super soft, mid-weight flannel has been custom woven in Japan with a slimmer, more tailored cut than a standard work shirt.

We also see a welcome return to 3sixteen's shaggy flannels in the slim work shirt silhouette, this time in red/blue & blue/orange colourways. This Japanese flannel is brushed on the outside to create the softest shirt you will own. It comes with double chainstitch run-offs and enamel coated metal buttons designed to chip and wear with use.
