    I own three pairs of Nudies (two Thin Finns and one Masa) and all of the tags look to be in the 'right' places of the pair you're considering on eBay. I think it's a good sign that the iconic stitching on the back pockets is shaped correctly and show the fine details of the wave pattern. Also, the rivets and primary button with the Nudies design on the waist look correct. I like the fact that the seller has posted a large quantity of detailed images to show off the finer points of the jeans. If s/he had not done that I would be much more skeptical. Hope it goes well for you!

    One thing I noticed, however, is that it appears that these Nudies have been machine washed quite a bit. The color around the pockets looks particularly washed out and lacks the contrast fading that a pair of properly broken in Nudies would have after months/years of wear. What do others think?

    They look kind of washed a lot, ant these are raw jeans, so the fades wont fit other persons who wear these. I know its cheap, but I wouldnt pay that kind of money for already half-broken in raw jeans...

    In norway they cost around 1000 NOK ($170-180) Shit, thats looks so much expensive when i made it to dollars :S
    But every brand pants in norway is around that... :O

    Edit: these are jeans with stretch, and I got a little theory that the fades could not get as contrasted as 100% cotton jeans... Anyone got any another opinion?

    They are only 20.50 pound and used.

    Why should they be fake?







    Everything on the pictures looks ok!

    This model is very hard to fade, lots of people will pay a lot of dry or raw jeans that have been well worn in.
