Until earlier this week, customers of UK denim mecca Rivet & Hide were limited to online shopping or appointment only visits. Well after two years and a lot of hard work, Danny Hodgson and his team were proud to open their permanent retail location on this past Thursday, April 17th in the Fitzrovia neighborhood of Central London.
Danny says it’s been a long time coming, “It was always the plan to get to this stage. We wanted to create a space that our customers would want to visit, see the great brands in person, hang out and chat denim.”
They’ve strived to make a space with as much character and history as the denim they sell. The flooring, shelves, fitting rooms, and storage units are all made out of reclaimed timber and beach Groyne wood from century old buildings in Southeast England. No two boards are the same, which meant every piece had to be specifically fitted.
Head on down to Rivet & Hide for the UK’s best selection of brands like Iron Heart, Flat Head, Pure Blue Japan, and 3sixteen as well as chain stitch hemming. Location is 5 Windmill Street, London W1. Photos courtesy Horst Friedrichs.
