Amsterdam vs Canada
After working on the leather patch for the new collaboration between Tenue de Nîmes and Naked & Famous, a clash between Amsterdam and Canada, I completely fell in love with the 13oz green, rope-dyed army repro denim. The mid-green color proved a particular challenge since the dye is very unstable, but the hard work has paid off, giving us a beautiful and truly inspired color. The production manager of the mill is obsessed with vintage army materials. He has a jaw-dropping collection of old WW2 army fabrics such as uniforms, tents, tarps, bags from which the color for the warp of this particular denim was chosen. The pocket lining is made from a fabric called ‘Crusader’ and is made in Montreal. It is a rip-stop twill that is usually reserved for the shell of jackets worn by firefighters and military personnel.
Every single pair is hand-numbered, signed and shipped in a custom carrier bag with denim belt-loop fastening. All made in Canada and limited to 24 pairs only available at Tenue de Nîmes.
