Tenue de Nîmes latest release, The North American issue, captures the heart and soul of denim in both historical and contemporary contexts.
Yesterday, the good people of Tenue de Nîmes in Amsterdam released their 7th Journal de Nîmes: The North American issue. Two of the many highlights for denim are a portrait of the world’s most legendary mill, Cone Denim, and the Dust Bowl photo shoot, where Dutch photographer Thomas Tukker creates a denim masterpiece, which makes us question whether he didn’t really steal these images from the early 1930s. Another interesting denim read includes a tribute to the legendary Levi’s 501, which includes a timeline of the all the Levi’s 501 that the White Oak mill has co-created. You can also find background info on the Red Wing Shoes Mohave military leather and the Japanese passion for North American icons.
Tenue de Nîmes decided to dedicate this issue to all of the people in Japan, where they will donate all revenues from selling the Journal de Nîmes online and through their Dutch store to Second Harvest Japan.
