Both dry Straight Svens--the streaky and the stiffer original--are selvage. In fact they're both just named Straight Sven - Dry Selvage There's never been non-selvage versions of dry Regular Ralfs and Straight Svens, even though the Limited Edition and the new one use much softer fabric.

I thought that the RRDG were not selvage, hence the much lower price.

Yeah, the greycasts were not selvage. What I meant is there's never been such a thing as a 'dry' RR/SS afaik.

I still don't think this is true. Fos5 had the straight svens dry for $155 and I believe i emailed him about them and he told me they were made of much lighter denim more similar to the ola denim... 11oz. I thought this topic had been beaten to death and the consensus was that there are three possible dry versions. Dry ralf selvage denim (last years model), dry streaky denim selvage (this years model) and dry ola denim this years model also. While i may be wrong about the straight sven being of ola denim, i am almost positive there is a nonselvage version that fos5 was selling, but wasn't listed on the nudies site.

Yeah I've also seen webstores listing 'Dry' SSes, but since it's not on the Nudie page and nowhere to be found at the huge Nudie stockists here in town that carry *everything* Nudie, I just assumed they were the f/w 05 selvage model or the new one which feels a lot like the dry BO while still being selvage. Hmm really strange.. Perhaps there is actually a 'dry' SS now, and that it is sold alongside the streaky version as a replacement for the old SSDS (surely they can't keep making three dry versions?) I think I'm getting a headache now

Yeah, I second that.

And Nudies homepage is about as updated as the Pope is on the latest in porn.
Me too Babar!

ok, so i've been reading around here, superfuture and my nudies and i'm pretty sure this is right. there are apparently 4 dry versions . . .

1. Straight Svenska Limited Edition -- made of streaky dry selvage. read about 6 articles down here

2. Old Straight Sven Dry Selvage -- made of the same dry selvage as RRDS as seen here

3. New Straight Sven Dry Selvage -- made of the streaky 'flame' dry selvage seen here

4. Straight Sven Dry -- made of the same denim or similar to the stiff dry denim that Flare Glenns used to be made of like these. notice how they they don't look soft and grainy like ola's and aren't as molded to the body like new ola's are . . .

Interesting (I thought you might were referring to the streaky one earlier). Well, let's hope the quality holds up to the old SSDS. That was one of Nudie's best jeans imo.

Well, I tried on the SS Dry in the streaky wash today, and it fit perfectly. In the salesman's opinion, the 32/32 was the right fit, as the waist was pulling just a little around the button, and the leg was just long enough that I could lose an inch or so. Also, this being a true straight leg, it didn't look ridiculous the way the ES Fulton does on me. Despite what others have said, I thought that the streaky denim was really nice looking. Now it's just a matter of justifying the $265.

I think you will save some money using oipolloi.com. European prices and ships to the US!

I looked at them, and they had good prices, just one small problem: they only had a 32/34, and I am a 32/32. If at all possible, I like to avoid hemming jeans, as I don't like the look as much, even when the originals are used. I was able to find a source that has the regular dry Svens that aren't selvage, for $155, so I might end up going that route. I also learned today that Rag and Bone will begin using my favorite of their denims in the RB6 in August, so saving some money on a less expensive pair of Svens might not be a bad idea.

I suppose I should also ask how much shrinkage I should expect lengthwise, before I decide what length to get. I always wash cold and hang to dry. Thanks.

Usually about 1 1/2 inches in length, maybe a little less if you do a cold/cold wash. If they seem like they might shrink up too much then you could always NOT wash em.

I have the streaky dry svens in a 31-32 and my natural waist is a 32. I had heard there super streachy and strech out like 3 sizes in the waist but i have not had that problem yet. I usually buy a 34 and cuff them up and to combat shrinkage but with my other nudies i havent run into that problem, usually the 34 i still have to cuff after washing.

Mr. Bond,
How do you like the streaky flame denim? I'm tempted to get a pair, but I'm afraid that the streaks will be too much in person and that it will clash with my shirts. Also, how long have you had yours for and how is the fading coming along?
