Our Story

the finest selvedge denim

 Rivet & Hide is the destination for those who require raw selvedge denim & casual wear of unsurpassed quality. Our focus is on the best denim mills of Japan whose ability to weave fabrics of incredible beauty and depth of character is now legendary. Established as an online store in 2012 we opened in Central London with a full bricks and mortar presence in April 2014.

built to last & age with distinction

This focus on the absolute best gives our customers the opportunity to source clothing, footwear and accessories of superior quality and craftsmanship, all under one roof. To this end we offer an authentic range of high grade shirting, jackets, boots, wallets, even eyewear to complement the denim. Inspired by vintage American and modern interpretations of classic style, every piece pays assiduous attention to construction details from the 40’s and 50’s. Garments built to last and age with distinction. 

amazing fabrics, incredible construction

We travel regularly to meet up with the brand owners, visit mills and specialist production houses. This helps us build strong relationships and release one off collaborations. It also means we can trace the stitch of everything we offer. Each trip teaches us a little bit more about those crucial details our customers love discovering from the irregular aspects of a shuttle loomed fabric to the intricacies of indigo dyeing.

Whether you visit us in person or contact us online the service is personalised, unhurried and friendly.
