    I love the look in the "not so shiny" photos! Those might be perfect for work, where they don't allow denim but will allow almost any other casual wear.

    I'm too nervous to order them without trying them on first though. Hopefully Denim Bar gets them soon, it's the only place close to me!

    I think Traffic at the Beverly Center had them last time I walked through, but I'd call first before you brave parking there.

    on mynudies.com I saw a photo of someone soaking theirs - what would be the benefit of doing that?

    On that finish, nada!.

    I saw these at Barneys Co-op South Coast Plaza. A nice jean for $175. They don't look that fitted though, and this finish only works on a skinny silhouette.

    Yes, the Barneys in Bev Hills. They had a whole stack of them when I was there last week. I paid $175. They are quite fitted. The 32x34 did not have as long an inseam as the Thin Finns I have in the regular dry wash. Lately I've gotten used to a good deal of stacking with my jeans. These hardly stack on me (I'm 6'4").
    They are also not as shiny as the photos here would suggest. I suspect it's the use of a flash on those close-ups.
    I'm guessing the best bet is to size down 2 from your actual waist. They weren't uncomfortable when I put them on new and they haven't shown a ton of stretching after 4 days of wearing them.

    That's what I was thinking at first too, but I concluded it must be the flash... feel free to dispute please! (anyone that's seen them in person.)
    I'd rather not plunk down the change and look like I'm wearing leather pants.


    its definately the flash. they dont look that shiny in reality.

    These are exceptionally cool and I have to find Thin Finns somewhere close by so I can check if the fit works for me.

    Edit: I haven't liked Nudies for a while but this and the blue-black dry Even Steven are very nice.

    Well apparently cultism.com is the place to go for these (if you're a 32, 33, or 34"). They are selling them for $139 shipped from Germany, and from what I've read the shipping time is crazy fast. It looks like they may even have the Slim Jim in a black coated. I 've never ordered anything from this company so I'm only taking other's word, but it looks like a pretty nice deal.

    ^^ can you verify that URL? I went to cultism.com and it's a ad site and I went to cultism.net and it seems to be vintage clothing only (?)

    On cultizm, the jeans seem to be slightly different....

    the Finn's are listed as NUDIE JEANS THIN FINN - DRY BLACK COATED - LIMITED and the Jims are NUDIE JEANS SLIM JIM BLACK BLACK COATED (note the lack of "Dry")

    The pics look slightly different too, the Jims seems to have a little bit of (for lack of a better term) unevenness in the inner thigh - anyone know what the diff is?
