However, I'll still rip out the Nudie back pocket stitching.
A lot of people are ripping out the back pocket stitching, especially LA and NYC hipsters who don't like the Nudie branding now that it's becoming more and more common (this has apparently been going on for some time in Sweden now). I personally don't see the point. Or rather, I do, but disagree with it. I think that purposefully debranding your jeans is not all that different from wearing a big LV shirt. Either way, you're giving too much attention to the branding in the first place. Besides, after a few washes and a lot of wearing, the stitching loses a lot of it's color.
Then again, I have a pair of fairly undistressed Von Dutch "Engineer" jeans that I rock out, Von Dutch patch and all, occasionally, just to give the "people in the know" the brand name version of the bird, so I'm a bit of a hypocrite.
