Jeans are a very personal thing and for many serve as a second skin. Your jeans go where you go. They live your lifestyle. They get abrasions and scars. And they bleed. Just like you. The longer you wear them, the more character and attitude they get. Besides denim, only leather has the ability to age so beautifully which is why taking your time to find the right brand for you is so crucial. Fortunately, we’ve got Nudie Jeans. Founded in 1999, the guys at Nudie have devoted themselves to creating the perfect denim brand which is why we keep bringing them back year after year, season after season. The beauty about our collection is that it is truly designed to meet the vast needs and body types of our clients. From different colour ways to fits there’s always something to match you personal style.
Here’s our latest style editorial showcasing our latest Spring 2015 new arrivals from Nudie Jeans.
Selvedge (n,): or “self-edge” is the edge of woven fabric finished to prevent unraveling which is achieved through a tighter, more dense weave.
Selvedge denim refers to a unique type of selvage that is made by means of using one continuous cross-yarn (the weft), which is passed back and forth through the vertical warp beams. This is traditionally finished at both edges with a contrasting warp (most commonly red); that is why this type of denim is sometimes referred to as “red selvedge.” This method of weaving the selvage is possible only when using a shuttle loom.
Shuttle looms weave a narrower 30-inch fabric, which is on average half the width of modern shuttleless Sulzer looms. Consequently a longer piece of fabric is required to make a pair of jeans from selvedge denim (approximately three yards). – Wikipedia
Denim is denim is denim. Or is it? The style pack has a long-standing, never-ending, die-hard fixation with the rugged, cotton twill textile. It rules the realm of cool- the constant search for perfect fit, fade and wash and actually finding it easily compares to diving for buried treasure- just more rewarding. Gotstyle’s Guide to Denim makes the challenge much less demanding.
