    thanks a lot (the reason is i've never seen nudie's with dark blue back pocket stitching)

    ciao for now!

    This one looks authentic. I have seen some distressed RR with a blue backpocket nudie logo, just like this one. I have never seen raw nudie with a different coloured backpocket though, only pre-distressed ones.

    That wouldn't be the first Nudie with black back stitching (which is what I think it is). The blue black bootcut Ola has a similar stitching. Looks real to me. The black-black Nudie has black back stitching, but the one on Ebay here looks more like a grey cast Slim Jim, or a dry grey cast rather.

    I've never seen that version either. Looks authentic enough to me. Try mynudies.com to see if someone else has a pair.

    But it looks kind of weird with the orange stitching everywhere else... reminds me of a washed pair I saw with blue or black stitching everywhere else on the jean and then the BRIGHT FREAKIN' ORANGE back pocket. I wish they would just stick to the same color stitching for the whole pair...

    Doesn't the stitching on the rear pockets look noticeably different from one another?

    $235 Australian... which would be around $180-90 US? Still pricey...

    i think it has to do with that they are dry comfort slim jims (read the tag)...and are made of stretch denim, althought i have never seen a stretch slim jim

    thanks guys for all your help. i've actually just bought a pair of slim jims greycast anyway so i'll probably give these ones a miss but at $100AUD that's pretty cheap so someone grab them quick. i think the seller has another pair in 29x32

    but yeah $235AUD is a weird price because all the raw slim jims i've seen retail for $215 in Australia.

    thanks again!

    If moving to a place is dictated by denim, I think the majoirty of the denim freaks on the fourm will choose Japan instead. [​IMG]
