We’ve talked about our friends at Railcar Fine Goods and Tenue de Nimes quite a bit lately, and for good reason. Both labels are on fire, releasing great products and opening new shops. Well if you’re a fan of either one (and even if you aren’t…) there’s reason to be excited.
Steven at Railcar has been dropping a number of teaser shots as of late, all to do with the ongoing construction of what’s sure to be a solid product launch: the Tenue de Nimes x Railcar Fine Goods Collaboration Jeans.
We don’t know a whole lot about them yet, but rest assured that as soon as the official details are released we’ll be sharing them with you. From the photos released so far, it seems TdN is mostly calling the styling and design, with Railcar in charge of quality manufacturing.
What we do know at this point is that the jeans are made of a lightweight, super dark selvedge denim from Cone Mills with an interesting orange selvedge ID. Pocket bags are specially screen printed on heavyweight American canvas. The jeans are being sewn together with monotone stitching, like many of Tenue de Nimes’ collaborative releases, and they’ll likely be a skinnier fit than Railcar’s normal releases.
Of course, being crafted by Railcar means top-notch quality is a given. For instance, behind-the-scenes shots reveal a triple-stitch flat-seam being employed in the same vein as Railcar’s other jeans.
According to Steven, the jeans will be “very clean but rugged-looking,” and that pre-orders are already happening. No official word on the number of pairs being released, but they are available in standard sizing from 29 – 34 and 36.
