My Worn In Nudie Slim Jim Broken Twill
My Nudies have reached the end of their functional life and are now starting to fall apart wherever they can. Yet as I pack them away and archive them, I couldn’t be more proud of them and how they have shaped themselves to reflect my life.

So while many people would rather buy their jeans worn in, I prefer for a more authentic way of living. This also ensures that no one has the exact same pair of jeans as I do.
