Available Now: Tenue de Nîmes 'Pablo' jean in Memphis Blue.
We are very excited to officially release our latest Jean ‘Pablo’ today, made from a Japanese denim: 'Memphis blue'. The Tenue de Nîmes jeans are the first step within a collection of garments that are timeless and always based on the basic principle of quality. Rene and I choose Italy as the starting point of our first jeans collection because over the past decades the European country was an unquestionable authority in the make and development of denim. Therefore we decided to make the Pablo jeans by a small factory in Italy, an hour away from Veneto, owned by an Italian woman and her son.
The Tenue de Nîmes Pablo jean serves a traditional denim aficionado. Where the first Tenue de Nîmes jean ‘Charles'
is a contemporary fit with a tight leg, the Pablo is a straight jean with a slightly more relaxed top-block and a slim but easy leg. The Pablo jeans could be described as a more classic ‘Americana’ jean. From a fabric perspective we believe there are two countries that made fabric production into an art: The United States and Japan. This is why the first ‘Pablo’ jean is created with a 14,5 o.z. Memphis II fabric from the Rampuya denim mill in Kojima, Japan.
Specially for this Tenue de Nîmes release we teamed up with Sophie Ebrard, a London-based photographer and director who created a campaign in the beautiful landscapes of Cape Verde. We admire Sophie's work so much because she is always experimenting with natural light and prefers the surprise-factor of film for her personal work. She adds a genuine warmth to everything she shoots.
The Tenue de Nîmes Pablo Memphis II jeans are limited to 140 pieces and are exclusively available at Tenue de Nîmes. Every jean is hand-numbered and is presented in a special box. For all of our overseas friends the Pablo jean is available here (at our online store
) too! If there are any questions please contact us through the Disqus fiels below.
