    Nudie Jeans

    TI'm hoping to get a nice pair of jeans for my birthday. I'm sorry I just love jeans. I was looking at Nudie and was impressed by the Grim Tim Dry Selvedge. Anyone who owns a pair could you please give me some advice on whether they are the jeans to invest in?

    I've got the Grim Tim Dry Dirt Organic so I can vouch for a great fit, mine have nice denim for the price but can't say anything about the selvedge version.

    I must sayI prefer the look and colour of the Dry Dirt Organic to the Dry Selvedge, thanks for suggesting it.

    Just wondering, does anyone find the 6 months with no wash slightly extreme? Has anyone done it, and - more importantly - is it worth the wait?

    If it starts to smell just throw it in the freezer for a while.
    Definitely worth it, no point spending the extra money if you just wash it straight away.

    I think I went for a year giving them a soak in hot water every three months, and after that hand-washing them inside out every 3 months. They're still quite dark for the most part but some good fades are developing.

    When you soaked them were they inside out too?

    Yeah, just inside out in a bathtub full of hot water without detergent, not agitating them too much. And hang dry, don't tumble.

    Anyone know how Grim Tim and Thin Finn compare? Grim Tim look like a pretty relaxed fit in the images, whereas Thin Finn look pretty damn skinny. I would really fancy something between the too.
    Why be boring?

    I'd say the Grim Tim is less relaxed than the pictures show it, here's a few pics of me in mine:


    Obviously it's going to depend on your body type and how much you fill out the jeans.

    The Grim Tim and Thin Finn have a pretty similar leg opening (Grim Tim's actually slightly smaller), the difference is that the Grim Tim has a roomier thigh with more of a taper down the leg, whereas the Thin Finn is narrower all the way down. You could always try the Tape Ted, not sure what what one's like.
