What exactly is the problem? I thought the link was going to be for an article detailing how Nudie had moved their factories to Mexico and was going to begin selling their jeans at half the price in Macy’s stores.
Don't panic yet. I still see more guys wearing Seven over Nudie. I really think that most people aren't ready for raw yet. It's kinda like high end denim when it first came out. In fact, I think that most people have no clue what Nudie is yet.
other than in-the-know store employees I've only seen one 'real' person wearing Nudies, which is surprising for LA, considering how well they sell out here. oh, I did see 2 swedish girls in Santa Monica wearing Nudies but that doesnt count since that's like saying you saw 2 girls wearing 7s at the Brea mall.
