Nudie Jeans 113900113900-L28-W32

Slim fit jeans with a straight leg made in organic comfort stretch denim. This right here is special to us, the comfort stretch version of our first ever selvage denim from legendary Japanese denim mill Kaihara. The rigid version left us in awe back in 2001, and thanks to its excellent aging property, it still does to this day. This version is developed to possess the same aging property but with stretch, making it comfortable and appropriate for slim fits. The Dry Original Selvage has a deep indigo warp, unbleached, vintage-inspired ecru weft, tight construction, dry hand, and starchy crispiness. It is pure beauty in its dry state, but the most significant part of the denim is its aging property – how it evolves with wearing. To understand it, let us get a bit technical. The warp is first dyed in a dark sulfur dye and subsequently in indigo. This dyeing technique gives it a deep and muted indigo blue hue that looks utterly beautiful, accompanied by our orange thread. It is also what gives the denim its intriguing nuances as it ages. It is what we call a greencast denim, denim that has a slight greenish-blue hue that becomes more evident with wearing. With years of wear and some washes – as the dark denim turns lighter in tone – the greencast starts to lean towards a redcast – clear blue – hue. Intriguing and mind-boggling! We are very proud to offer Grim Tim Dry Original Selvage – our hats off for Kaihara’s denim and indigo artisans, forever. We recommend 6 months of everyday wear before the first wash, if not longer. This way, you will end up with a beautiful pair of worn-in jeans. It sure is a long time; however, it’s only a recommendation. As long as you give them love, the result will be great.
