    My Ande Whalls blew out with only slightly more wear than my Nudies despite being way better constructed. Just patch them up and keep going was what I did. Nudie denim quality is far from spectacular but is a big step up from Levi's or mall brands, I don't own any APC but I've handled them and didn't think the denim was anything special. ymmv, I just don't think people should ignore the entire brand just because some of their offerings are bad, there are definitely some good nudies out there.

    I bought some Nudies SJDJ for 149€ and after some 6 or so months I had a major crotch blow out, and I don't think that I stressed them too hard. After some more months the jeans were literally unwearable.

    A while later I bought a very similar looking and fitting pair of ZARA Dry Denim jeans for 39€. This is almost 2 years ago and I wore the shit out of them. Not only they fade beautifully and look great, I don't have the slightest problems with blow out's or whatever. I still wear them on a regular basis while my Nudies died a long time ago.

    I find Nudies totally overrated and overpriced.

    Probably true, but it's a pretty casual fit and I do like the GATs with khaki pants..obviously the brands don't really blend, but I think the pieces work ok together. Would have thrown on Trickers but getting onto the roof involves a little climbing [​IMG]

    I think this happens to so many people because Nudie over-starches their jeans and then tells people not to wash them.

    I don't like to hate, but is anybody else really sick of this aesthetic or do i spend too much time on sf?

    I dunno but I'm a little sick of the burn-too-much-/-make-weak-excuses-/-not-deliver-on-promised-SF-sgt.-pepper-shop-and-now-sgt.-pepper-idea-is-played aesthetic

    I have owned 7 pairs of nudies and never had a crotch blowout. It's the luck of the draw. Actually, I have never had a single crotch blowout on any pair of jeans in my entire life. You guys need to stop rubbing yourselves so hard all day long [​IMG]

    Thanks guys. Finally back from my little road trip, got a lot of catching up to do.

    The anticipation right before that net drop was terrifying, I couldn't even look down.

    me neither
    i think it's because many people buy their raw denim in way too small sizes.
