Tender Co. Denim

Recommended Posts

Just through dyeing and appearing in the outside world any day now, type 933 Zoetrope Coats are an experiment in pleating from the neck, starting from the look of military jackets with chest darts into the collar, working through more abstract ideas of snapshots of movements fanned out across a piece of fabric, and Edweard Muybridge's use of the zoetrope technique of animation (zoopraxiscopy!)

Here's what it actually looks like...:

Along with various iterations of the season's fabrics and dyes (including the really lovely English-Woven double indigo cotton Taunton above), I've got a single piece made in ecru cotton Taunton (a simple 11oz cloth, this one's broken twill) which was put into rinse with a batch of double indigo garments. It's come out pale blue, but rather than being actively dyed it's coloured entirely from dye lost by other pieces of clothing. Here are some pictures:

because the big pleat in each side pulls the grain all over the place it's going to be really interesting seeing how these wear in.

I especially like the Zoetrope in the walnut dye. Thanks for sharing, William. I just caught a glimpse of the side cinch trousers on the web stores. Any chance we'll be seeing restocks of any of the older Tender model pants? I'm looking for small sizes in the 132s and the unborn seem to have been sold out everywhere for quite some time.

Thanks very much for this. Yes, new 126 side-cinch Oxford trousers are now in stock. Here's how they work:

I've been wearing a pair of these in indigo/indigo broken twill Taunton for about 6 months, and I'm really pleased with them. Here are some photos:

Here they are new, in indigo/indigo Taunton (as above) and in the same fabric woven with ecru cotton yarn:

Standard jeans have indeed been out of stock for a while, sorry about this. I'm expecting a full restock around the end of June, although if it's of interest I do have a pair of 136s in Unborn denim in a size 2, which are the same style as 132, just wider in the leg. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
