How We’re Wearing Our Made-in-the-USA Jeans: Rivet & Thread

When our denim designers wanted to make our great jeans even better, they trawled our vintage archives for denim details from our early days as a workwear brand. The result? Rivet & Thread, our small-batch collection of selvedge denim that we sew and hand-finish in LA. We spent (what we hope is) one of the last chilly Saturdays of the season with three of our in-house denim lovers at their favorite local spots and asked each to mix our Rivet & Thread Selvedge Boyjean into her signature weekend outfit.

Kick things up a notch with a great jacket

The outfit, in her own words: “Earthy, simple and genuine”

Style crush: Patti Smith

Saturday Spot: Dashwood Books. “It’s my go-to for inspiration during the workday. They have the most amazing selection of photography books, and it’s intimate—a rarity in busy New York.”

Keep your cuffs crisp

The outfit, in her own words: “Androgynous and effortless”

Style crush: Pina Bausch, the late German choreographer

Saturday spot: John Derian. “It’s an escape from the city. During the holidays it feels like a bustling Christmas market, and during the summer it reminds me of a small Parisian antique shop, complete with flowers for sale. And, yes, there are great linen couches.”

Add something classic (like a fedora or oxford shoe)

The outfit, in her own words: “Comfortable and easy”

Style crush: the French singer Françoise Hardy

Saturday spot: The Smile. “If you arrive early enough on weekends, you almost have the place to yourself. They serve some of the best granola in the city, and available until dinner for those who wake up on the later side.”
