Recently we at Tarifa and Company have come accross a unique brand of jeans which shares our passion for quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and exclusive fit and taste within denim: Marc Nelson Denim.


Founded in 2011 by Marcus Hall, he built on the accumulated family and local community knowledge from the now defunct Levi’s factory down the street where he grew up in Knoxville, TN. In Marc Nelson, he has been able to combine a truly comfortable design with a contemporary edge to their jeans.


Marc Nelson works only with the finest fabrics in denim, from Cone Mills to Japanese and Italian selvedge denim. Their production runs are rather limited and each style is limited to 214 pairs (why it’s exactly 214, shoot them an e-mail!), so make sure you move fast if you see one you like.

Proving that a pair of jeans is not just a few yards of denim fabric, thread, rivets, buttons, a zipper, but a statement of who you are, their designs are for the elegant men and women who seek their clothing to be not only stylish, but also truly unique and built with the highest degree of care.


Born and manufactured in America, the house of denim, Marc Nelson ships their exclusive designs to not only the US, but Europe too. Take a tour of their site and enjoy a truly unique and exclusive jeans brand!


The New York Times has just published its 52 places to visit in 2015 list, from chilly Canada to the deepest depths of the Asian continent.

As at TARIFA and COMPANY we are constantly thinking about putting our swimsuits on, we have selected a few destinations from the list where you will be able to enjoy the sun, warm temperatures, and above all, a refreshing swim in the sea.

PAPUA, NEW GUINEA. One of the most remote corners of the Pacific, where you will find virgin beaches with crystal waters, free of tourists. If you enjoy diving, don’t miss the chance to dive into some of the best preserved reefs in the world.


ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES. On the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean, we find this marvelous island. This place breathes calm and tranquility, and invites you to immerge into its water to swim or snorkel.


SRI LANKA. This is a popular destination, and as the NYT mentions, and a new generation of hotels is planning to open this year to offer luxury and creativity in its accommodations. Rooms with views over the Indian Ocean, infinity pools or yoga studios on the treetops, will make your stay a memorable one.


CUBA. This Caribbean jewel is a place of particular interest for those interested in seeing the socialist regime still in operation, with miles of island still awaiting development and splendorous coasts.


Set your destinations for 2015, and above all, don’t forget your TARIFAs. It’s always summer somewhere!


If you are scared of heights, this post might not be for you. But if you are the adventurous type, love an exclusive pool, and want to enjoy a great experience, these spaces in high places might be just what you are looking for. Today, we at Tarifa and Company, bring you three pools that are sure to provide great urban views, and maybe, a little bit of vertigo.


Hotel The Joule, Dallas, United States. Defined as one of the most impressive in the world, this pool is unique due to its structure and views. Its transparent walls allow you to see Dallas while you dive.


Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kanggiao, China. Set 24 storeys high and with a see-thru floor, this pool is only for the bravest. If you are not scared of heights, relish at the feeling of swimming on thin air.


Hotel Marina Bay, Singapore. Among the multiple skyscrapers and unique buildings in Singapore, the Marina Bay is the crown jewel. Its three towers are crowned with a platform with an immense terrace and the world’s longest, elevated pool. With a 150-meter (492 feet) infinity pool and nested 200 meters (556 feet) above the ground, this pool allows guests to swim as close to the sky as ever.

Even in the skies, there is always a good place to put on your swim trunks!
