Tenue de Nîmes x Tellason Garment Dyed Indigo Ladbroke Grove

Main

Never ones to shy away from exploring the world of indigo dyed good, Amsterdam-based denim specialists, Tenue de Nîmes, recently teamed up with San Francisco’s denim creators, Tellason, on their third collaboration – the Garment Dryed Indigo Ladbroke Grove.

Serving as Tellason‘s more fitted cut, the Ladbroke Grove is a slimmer and tapered silhouette with lower rise. Similar to their other models which utilize this fit, this (very) limited jean incorporates White Oak denim from the North Carolina’s Cone Mills.

In this case, however, as soon as construction reached completion, the denim was shipped off to Japan Blue in Kojima, Okayama, Japan to be individually dyed in synthetic indigo. The final touch was was then made in Amsterdam, Netherlands in which TdN commissioned Dutch tattoo artist, Tim Beijsens, to inscribe their namesake near the top of each leather patch.

Just as we saw with their collaborative denim with Railcar Fine Goods as well, TdN continues to think outside the box by utilizing a peculiar, yet striking, selvedge line. For this exclusive piece, we see the near-Azure blue denim fabric accented with a slate gray and black selvedge line.

Given how pivotal of a role indigo blue plays in the lives of both Tenue de Nîmes and Tellason, it’s no surprise that this project means a great deal to both parties. It represents their passion for indigo goods and is a great demonstration of the dye’s versatility.

    Really a great example of a collaboration between brands! very impressive. The selvage is really unique looking and this whole process seems to be very well executed. Price also seems fair. Good example of denim being done differently.

    Just bought a pair of these – bought their last collab too but the size that was in stock on the website was wrong :( so i had to get refunded.
    Made the purchase based on the colour being absolutely stunning! And makes a big change from the distressed or raw pairs i wear atm.

    These should be dyed carbon black instead to match the carbon footprint they’ve left. ;)

    That is a wonderful color and the dye effect is great.
