Lets get one thing out of the way, denim has a own culture of its own. I don’t know as much about denim and treating denim as I would like to know. There are sneaker heads and yes there are also “denim heads” if thats what you want to call them. But I am intrigued and have had many sit down and discussions on denim, yes discussions solely on denim. Which usually lead to me getting a minor head ache. Word of advice never tell a denim fanatic “but they’re just jeans though”. But after many discussions I believe I got the basics down pat pretty well and I must say denim is definitely an entire world of its own.
Nudie Jeans is a Swedish clothing brand thats takes great pride in not only providing great jeans but offer a way of thinking, a concept and an undying passion, fuelled by the traditions of denim and the characteristics of itself.
Since 2001 when Nudie was founded, they have had a vision of designing a completely organic collection. Over the years the brand has ambitiously worked to fulfill the vision and gradually share of organic garments has increased. Nudie Jeans F/W for 2012 is completely made from organic cotton. All pocket linings and trims are made from organic raw materials as well.
The jeans above are from their F/W collection is most definitely my favourite fit. The fit is ” Thinn Finn” it is a slimmed down version of the 1950’s carrot shaped silhouettes. It also has a normal rise and an extra low back yoke. It’s slim from the hip and tapers down to a narrow leg opening. They are a tad too slim at first, but over time they will break down and fit my body the way I desire. Also they have a bit of a stretch which is a lot more comforting, unlike its cousin raw denim.
