The denim is completely different, with the Nudies being dry and the ES being washed. Personally, I hate denim with any stretch to it, so that would rule out the ES. Usually, I'm a bigger fan of ES, though, as their cuts are a little more well suited to me.

Slim Jim. Those ES are not worth 200 bucks.

I have the SJ dry black, it's a great jean so I'm on the Nudie wagon.

I'd get Skulls. My personal favorite atm. Depending on how slim you want to go, maybe it could be an option for you. Also cheaper than both nudies and ES, I believe?

Skull Jeans

Thanks guys for all your opinions.

I guess im leaning towards the nudies. I really need some dry denim, but I've heard that the fading sucks on the blacks. I dont want to realize 8 months down the road when I wash them, that the jeans look no better than prewashed plain black jeans. So fill me in if im wrong...but, the earnests for about 100 USD, would that be an ideal price for an ideal pair of jeans??
