BDDxTDN-006 indigo x indigo 14 oz. RHT
In celebration of Tenue de Nimes 10-year anniversary & BENZAK’s 5-year anniversary the two Amsterdam-based denim brands have come together and created a limited edition collaboration pair of jeans. BENZAK and Tenue de Nimes have a long history of working together. This year will mark the 5-years that BENZAK and TdN have been working alongside each other from a wholesale and retail perspective. BENZAK have been stocked at TdN ever since their first collection.
The BDD-006 is a slim fit with a slim straight leg. This fit has been part of the BENZAK collection since day 1, and has been available in various fabrics over the years. Tenue de Nimes always carries this fit in any of the available fabrics BENZAK produces, and due to it’s popularity we decided to use it for our collaboration.
The fabric is woven by Collect in Kojima, Okayama, Japan. The 14 oz. indigo fabric differs from the norm, most jeans are woven with an indigo warp and white weft. These have been woven with both an indigo dyed warp and weft. This creates a distinctive deep blue colour that is somewhat unique and has incredibly high fading potential.
As mentioned the fabric weighs in at 14 oz. this is considered to be a perfect mid-weight denim for all year around wear. After a few weeks of wear the primary fading areas will first fade into a brighter blue hue before the white core of the yarns are reached. Only then will the fading patters reach a their lighter stages of white.
Instead of the usual brass and copper coloured threads, we purposely opted for a 3-tone blue pallet. The coin pocket features the distinctive TdN logo, just like the one they use in their own collection. The natural leather patch is vegetable tanned and debossed with the Japanese name for the city of Kojima; the 3 X’s stand for the city of Amsterdam.
