In collaboration with the Centraal Museum Utrecht, Amsterdam-based denim experts Tenue de Nîmes have channeled their knowledge into an extensive denim dictionary, covering everything a serious jeans enthusiast needs to know. The Denim Dictionary explains terms and phrases ranging from “Bell-Bottom” to “Stone Washing” to “Whiskers,” all of them gathered from credible sources around the globe and illustrated by Utrecht-based artist, Joost Stokhof.

You can pick up the hardcover version at Tenue de Nîmes’ Amsterdam store or read it online here.
