I also break with most SFers on the Nudie thing; not saying they're bad jeans or anything, but I'd gladly take a pair of understated, well-cut, lightly distressed Acnes over a pair of RRDS with the "hey, check out my Nudies!" stitiching. Just me.
Oh noes! People might think that I think that they'll think that I think I'm cool because of the stitches on my ass!!!!! Better not have any stiches AT ALL. Then I can think that they won't think that I think I'm too cool.

Since they're Swedish, I assumed it was pronounced AHHk-ney and not ACK-ney.

Acne, yeah, it's a pretty weird, unsettling name. It used to get to me more than it does now. I guess you really can adjust to pretty bizarre things.

I saw a pair of brownish, pre-distressed Acnes at Barney's Co-Op a few weeks ago. They looked pretty cool. No idea about the quality, though, and the price, though I can't remember it specifically, was pretty high.

People are getting surprisingly emotional about this...

Yeah, it is sort of stupid; I also think it's cheating a little bit since it's a Swedish company using an acronym that only works in English. Wtf? I also agree this is a whole lot of sound and fury about nothing, in which I eagerly participated nonetheless.

In sum: Acne is not crap; their dry jeans are not as good as Nudies (which is also a slightly silly name); their washed/distressed jeans are decent but overpriced; Nudie's flamboyant stitiching turns off some stealthbeasts like me, but Nudie makes good jeans regardless; and I think maybe we were a bit harsh to Stylez, who in turn was slightly more agressive than we usually like to see 'round these parts.

Now can I post these guys and bury this thread?
