    I read a few times that the only unique/special Nudies are the RRDS. What do you guys feel about this? What about their other cuts? Are there better equivalents from other manufacturers, for less? Thoughts? Edit for Clarification - Let's say you are looking for a good pickup truck and the Ford F-250 is one of the greatest. What I am asking, is if you were considering a sedan, would you puchase from Ford too or would you go with another choice, like the Camry or Accord? I don't wan to debate cars but I hope that gets my point across. I realize the RRDS is a wonderful jean but if you were NOT getting the RRDS, would you still get Nudie? If I was interested in say a slim straight leg, should I stick with Nudie or would I get a better deal (cost or quality) from another mfg?

    I love my Super Slim Kims, the stretch denim is super comfy considering how tight they are, but they still fade beautifully. Or will. If I ever get off my ass and do something active in them. The Thin Finn is maybe the coolest skinny cut there is, as well. I can't speak for the others, but Slim Jims are pretty popular so there must be something to them, and at ~$175 the price is good for a nice pair of denims.

    My absolute favorite pair of jeans are my bootcut ola's, after they stretched out to fit they're the nicest slim pair of jeans, great color, subtle fading, and they go with anything. Definitely have the old comfortable pair of jeans thing going on.

    The Thin Finn is my favorite jean of all time.

    The Ralf was the first one I bought but since have gotten Jims and Olas as well and all of them are great.

    My preference of Nudie cuts would go:
    Finn
    Jim
    Ola
    Ralf

    I was thinking about getting a pair of Thin Finns, but the only model I've found so far were the dry comforts, which were a bit too light for my taste, color-wise. Are there any darker washes?
    I heard there's a Dry Black, but I'd rather have something dark blue-ish.

    ninjapie, goto oaknyc.com. They have the dry stretch model which is darker than the dry comforts.

    I like my Thin Finns a lot, so I would say yes there are other Nudie styles to buy.

    Thanks for the link. I also checked out the Dry Blacks now. They look pretty cool actually. Does anyone happen to have pair and perhaps can put up some pictures?

    So, with Nudie/Acne threads currently back-to-back on this board (obviously, that'll change as each is updated), and me on the record as an Acne fan, perhaps this is a good time to air my major Nudie-related complaint. I don't dispute that they're cut really well and solidly constructed from good denim, but I just can't dig a brand that has such a bling-bling in-your-face pocket logo/overall stitiching scheme (and I've yet to see a pair with the pocket stitching removed in such a way that they looked good; also, even if this worked the all-over stitching pattern is still pretty loud as these things go).

    I'm obviously not going to convert anyone, but I just don't get this. I'm actually willing to pay more for Acnes (and bear in mind dry Mics are less than RRDS) or go for another stealthbeast brand (APC, '47 'Canes or Chops with the little red tag torn off) because they exercise a little restraint in putting the finishing touches on their jeans. I'm also unconvinced that Nudies are built tougher than Acnes, although I get my @$$ handed to me every time I try and argue points like this. It's probably because I'm a moron, so keep that in mind when evaluating the above. Just my two cents, etc.

    I have some straight svens in the streaky dry selvage, and they're amazing. The fit is perfect on me, and they look awesome worn low, which is how I generally like to wear them. The wear is awesome, too. The color is beautiful.

    I'm thinking that I can't call myself a fan until I pick up some Ralfs, so I think I might pick up some dry greycasts soon. the color on those is incredible.

    Those look pretty dark, very nice though. I really like the lower backpockets on the Thin Finns, but I also like the color of the Slim Jim Dry Japan alot. The main difference between Slim Jims and Thin Finns are the backpockets and the tighter fit?
    Decisions decisions. Thanks for the picture.
