Our Story

A Decade in Selvedge Denim

At Rivet & Hide we offer a curation of rare selvedge denim and artisanal Japanese apparel.

Since 2012, we have worked closely with Japanese and American brands, makers, and artisans to bring our customers a tightly-edited selection of timeless menswear staples. What started over a decade ago as a by-appointment-only service has grown into two bricks and mortar destinations - one in London, the other in Manchester - and an online store that ships worldwide.


 A Slower Approach to Style

 Placing quality, character, and provenance at the centre of everything we do, Rivet & Hide champions a more considered approach to contemporary style. We deal in the slower paced and the better made - quality garments that can be worn anytime, with anything, for years to come.  

Our collection of Japanese selvedge denim is complemented by a tightly-edited selection of Italian outerwear, Japanese leather jackets, French knitwear, and British, bench-made shoes and boots. We’ve become a home for the best in quality menswear and a trusted destination for anyone seeking it.  


The Contemporary Meets the Time Honoured 

Eschewing the trending in favour of the timeless, we search far and wide for contemporary styles made the old-school way. Many of our jeans, jackets and outerwear collections are made to order using carefully selected - and often custom-made - fabrics and hardware. Many are one-off pieces; small-run styles never to be remade. 

We’re fortunate enough to be the exclusive stockists of many of the brands we carry, too. We work closely with a range of American and Japanese brands, visiting their mills and makers regularly and catching an advance glimpse of what materials, fabrics, and styles they’re working with that season. 


 A Unique Shopping Experience

We pride ourselves on extending an approachable and welcoming service to all. Whether you’re stopping by for your first pair of jeans, or you’ve shopped with us for years, you’ll receive the same warm welcome and friendly guidance from our retail experts. Impassioned but never pushy, knowledgeable but never aloof, we believe in making the world of selvedge denim - and indeed the wider world of premium menswear - that little bit more welcoming.
