Tenue de Nîmes is proud to release its latest Jean ‘Pablo’ today, made from a Japanese fabric: '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.
The company's co-founders chose Italy as the starting point of their first jeans collection. Over the past decades this European country was an unquestionable authority in the make and development of denim. Therefore Tenue de Nîmes decided to let the Pablo jeans be made 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 Tenue de Nîmes believes there are two countries that turned 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.
Especially for this Tenue de Nîmes release the company teamed up with French photographer Sophie Ebrard: who created a campaign in the beautiful landscapes of Cape Verde.
