Just Released - Tenue de Nîmes X Big John Natural Blue Raw Denim

Announced just last week, Amsterdam-based mens shop, Tenue de Nîmes, has combined forces with Japan’s oldest denim brand, BIG JOHN, to create a unique natural indigo denim.

Note: For further reading, check out our past article on BIG JOHN - “BIG JOHN – Not So Raw (yet), But Insanely Important“.

Although we haven’t seen the denim up close, the collaboration appears to truly be one-of-a-kind. BIG JOHN‘s vintage M1002 1967 cut is incorporated, along with a special, reduced dyeing technique that allows for a more prominent traditional bright blue color. Only 24 items are available for this limited edition piece.

According to Tenue de Nîmesproduct description:

By reducing the dyeing of the Kaihara fabric by 25%, the factory emphasized the traditional bright blue color that is referred to in Japanese as ‘Ruri’. The color (Lapis lazuli, after a gemstone of intense blue color) is considered one of the seven treasures of Buddhism. The yellow selvage is a tribute to the traditional 1960′s fabric made by Cone Mills.

     Wow that is a beautiful blue.  Am interested to see how it would wear + fade

    • Nickoles

      I am the same way. I want them pretty badly but if they don’t fade well, I would just go with a natural indigo.

    I love the color of this pair. Don’t see a lot of jeans this kind of blue.

    Ting Young and other interested in the boots, I own a pair of these, and I have to say, I prefer the Chippewa version:
