I'm really stuck on either Nudies or Naked and Famous. I'm going to Self Edge in San Francisco to try on the jeans there. If I fall in love with a pair of Nudies then it's set. If I don't, I'm going to consider the Naked and Famous more.
Anyone out there willing to convince me further or convince me otherwise?
Self Edge is an awesome store. I'm going there tomorrow myself.
When you go, check out the Iron Heart 301s - 21 oz raw denim, very slim and tapered, indestructible and yet very soft. I could imagine those looking pretty amazing on a woman, though they aren't as low rise as the skull or flat head bsp. They ain't cheap, but you could wear them everyday for probably 3 years before you had to retire them. Also, since you can go there, try on the skull 5010, the Flat Head 05 BSP (a lowrise tapered jean) and also the Real Japan Blues 19cm jean. These jeans are more expensive than naked and famous or APC or Nudie, but they are all awesome.
I have some naked and famous. They were my first raw jeans. I loved them at first until they stretched two sizes too big, which actually was my bad..but now that I know more, i look at the N&F and the dye color and the denim feel just does nothing for me. I will sell them when i get around to it. There is just something so cool about the Japanese brands i've checked out or own that comes from their obssession with every step of the process. The non Japanese brands have a very different feel. Even the ones using made in Japan denims.
