If anything I can accept a much easier comparison with Nudie to Diesel than I can to Seven's and have actually been saying it for at least the last year. They both have the same target demographic and both have the same appeal to a mass market. The 18-35, messy haired, work-an-office-job-want-to-look-like-a-cowboy crowd (can also be substitued with the I'm-going-to-move-to-the-big-city-and-work-in-the-music-industry scene). Seven's, IMO, are a much more conservative brand for men (I don't care what anyone says, I still think they make a woman's posterior look fantastic and would hate to see them disappear if only for that fact). I think it's a long time coming before you see slim Nudies matched with a stripped button up and square-toed shoes.
If Diesel made anything that fit as well as Nudie Slim Jims in dry Japanese denim for $140, I would wear Diesel. Fit and quality should be everyone's concern before the label name.
Also, and this is clearly a ridiculous argument, but can anyone actually see something called "Nudie" catching on with the American male population...seriously?
