Harris tweed, beeswax cotton from scotland, chunky lambswool, heavyweight melton from yorkshire and fine portugese cotton mélange make up the percival autumn/winter 2010 menswear range.'
They also have an online store now. At the moment there are not too many pieces available, but what they do have looks good to me, especially the shirting and the parka's.

Tenue de Nîmes has the same great, warm vibe a lot of denim shops in Japan do - which is something very, very rare in Europe.
I took some pics of the store - I didn't bring my DSLR, so my Android phone polaroid pics will have to do the job.
Yes, the pic is on it's side - Photobucket is being a bitch. Here you see some great goods, like jackets from Woolrich and Nigel Cabourn.
Above you see the patch on a pair of Momotaro jeans neither you or me shall probably ever own - these jeans take 18 days to create and will set you back €2000,- . Yes, that's not a typo.
The custom TdN bike hanging on the wall.
Apparently, it's not all fun and games at TdN.
Of course, I could not leave empty handed, so I got a copy of Michael Allen Harris' 'Jeans of the Old West: A History'. Which is a must have for all denim enthusiasts. Note the 'Journal de Nimes' booklet in the back: TdN creates it's very own magazine, and I must say that's it's awesome.
