    Just got my first nudie the other week, a dry slim kim, with 2% elasten for stretch. I was just wondering how this will affect the weathering after about 6 months wear. Will they be not as nice as the regular denim? How will they weather?

    I've looked for pics and even nudie's website gallery only shows the regular non-stretch jeans, grrr(some of them 5 y/o!!).

    Thanks guys!

    i've read a couple accounts on here and on superfuture about people complaining that the stretch pairs don't fade as nicely.

    Here is a pic of SSK's from mynudies. Look at them and you will see that a great fade ( I will leave it to you to decide on fit), can be had.

    Looks very good! One last question though, is that slim kim dry or prewashed?

    Those were dry, there are many pictures of them in that section. IIRC, the user mentioned that he finished his basement in them.
