    Yeah, they definitely aren't done. I'm kinda thinking about getting another pair, maybe Sven's this time. I'll probably get suckered into something else though.

    Obligatory dead denim joke:

    Nudies are bereft of life. Pushing up the daisies, they have joined the choir invisible!

    WHo the hell is Sergio Valente? And why should anyone care if Nudies are in or not? I thought that the cut & denim quality mattered anyway, not the name.

    does this mean that the thread has come full circle? I gave in, thanks to the sf community, earlier today. look for pics of my de-branded nudie's next week. And, yeah, I agree, nudie is prob the best-if not one of the better (don't want to piss of the earnest sewn fam) mass market brands. And, at least a perfect embodiement of the raw denim movement-which means it will become a trend and then mass appeal; but by then, who knows what we'll be doing..

    If it doesn't have the Nudie stitching, and nobody knows it's Nudie, is it still a pair of Nudie? [​IMG]

    I have seen one person in Santa Barbara wearing them

    That might have been me. I probably looked like a slob, too. The forum has eyes everywhere! I haven't seen them on anyone else yet.

    No question to me that Nudie is THE best mass-market brand. It's like 7FAM on women: sure they're huge, but how can you complain? They tend to look great.
    Of course, they're still not huge by any means. Where I have a feeling at least 40% of all 18-25 year olds know Seven jeans, I'd say somewhere in the 0.1% - 0.15% know of Nudie. The appeal is somewhat similar though. Openly branded, democratic-fitting denim with a strong market presence.

    Then again, I could just be getting giddy from my new pair of Nudies. Still on the honeymoon with these ones.

    To date - I personally have not seen anyone in NYC wearing Nudies. I am sure many are but I have not come across any. Unlike 7FAM which I saw on a tonne of people just on my way to work this morning.

    Btw.... nevermind, i'll start a new thread for this one.........

    Weird. I've seen about 15 pairs in Toronto; half of them were worn huge and loose by hypebeasty kids wearing AF1s.

    I'm in LA and have only seen Nudies on store employees (Traffic and A.Rag).....except I did see 2 girls wearing Nudies in Santa Monica, but they were obviously swedish tourists as they were carrying big backpacks and speaking Svenska. Oh yea, I did see a fellow wearing nudies at the Vegas Rockabilly Weekender this year.

    I live in Santa Cruz and attend the UC here. I saw a student wearing a pair of dry nudies on campus, and they looked great, super dirty lol.

    DC Nudie report! I've seen 'em on employees in the Co-ops and Denimbar, and on dudes shopping in georgetown who looked like they were trying pretty hard. Haven't seen them out in bars/rock venues, though maybe they're cool in clubs, I dunno. Maybe I'm just running with the wrong crowd.

    What store do you work at? You obviously dont work at Jake, Guise or E Street Denim because those are the only 3 stores carrying Nudie in Chicago. If i had to guess you probably work at the denim lounge.

    Barneys also carries Nudie in Chicago, albeit in very limited fashion (only Straight Svens and Regular Ralff's last I saw).

    I have seen only a handful of people wearing Nudies in San Francisco, and I am nearly positive they were all Swedish tourists.

    alexbigman?

    No, actually, alexbigman goes to my school. He's the first person I ever saw wearing Nudies. He tapped my shoulder when I walked downstairs he was walking up, and he pointed at his back pockets and I was like "ahh yea Nudies," then we had a really short conversation. He's a friendly person. No idea why he's such a weirdo online.
