You may have just seen Jonathan’s initial review on these Nudie Tight Long John Jeans in Organic Twill Rinsed, but Nudie also sent me the same pair so I can break them in and see how they turn out. The idea behind this little challenge is that Jonathan and I both have exactly the same pair of jeans in the same size (27) and we will be seeing how they change and vary over the weeks based on our different body shapes. These are unisex jeans, so it will be really interesting learning how they differ on male and female bodies.
Skinny jeans for men have come a long way since the trend kicked off over 5 years ago. Yes, it has been a staple for many for that long. The fit is not as generic as it was before. Now the styles come in a range of fits between straight to super slim and in an array of colors as well as prints now. I have put together some great fits and washes for you guys from the new 2013 collections. Click through to see our favorite choices for this season below.
In perfect time for the Holidays, Swedish denim brand Nudie Jeans and Atrium NYC have launched an exclusive Thin Finn style in ÔÇÿOrganic Icon Red’. The 11 oz. slim fit Turkish denim has been skillfully stripped with bleach at the Nudie LAB in Italy and over-dyed in deep Rubin red.
The organic Thin Finn features five pocket details, zip fly, signature contrasting orange stitching throughout, raw copper trims and organic cotton pocket linings. Icon Red is the latest jean in an over-dyed finish which first launched in Fall 2012 with Icon Orange. The jean became available on Friday December 14 at Atrium online and Atrium Broadway and are priced at $199. What do you think of them? Will any of you be going out and purchasing these exclusives?
For this months styling post for SSENSE, I wanted to change it around and do something for the guys. I usually style a lot of ladies looks, but I love men’s fashion just as much as I do women’s, so I had fun creating this casual look around a pair of Nudie Tight Long John jeans. I chose these jeans for the base of the outfit as they are such a classic raw denim colour which goes with anything and Nudie always provide a great fit, in my opinion.
I decided to pair the jeans with a Marc by Marc Jacobs Heather Grey Leather Trimmed Thompson Sweatshirt, some Common Project Low Tops in Burgundy, a Neil Barrett Burgundy Wool Knit Beanie and a Maison Martin Margiela Brass Spiral Ring.
Burgundy is always my favourite colour for Winter and I think it looks just as good on men as it does on women, if not better, so that’s why I added some colour to the look with the sneakers and beanie. The sweatshirt is also another favourite of mine, when I saw it I could definitely envision many outfits as it’s such a simple yet beautiful piece of clothing. Grey marl is very versatile and I think the black leather detailing makes it that little bit more structured so it looks more smart than casual. I added the ring in just as a finishing touch, but I know male jewellery is great for some and not for others, so of course it’s optional. Would you wear a look like this?
