Sorry if this has been asked before but I just got some thin finns(31x32). Now prior to these finns I had another pair of finns(32x32) but it was too big so i exchanged it for a 31X32. But I noticed that these finns that i recieved said "Dry" and is 100% cotton. I thought all Dry thin finns were 98% cotton and 2% elastane(whatever it's called?). Is there a difference between the two? Obviously the "dry stretch" stretch but are the cut and fit the same? I know it's not a big deal, but I was just curious.

I just noticed that the 100% cotton finns in the pic is a broken twill.

yeah most definitely broken twill, good eyes bilmaga. Nudie seem to have these anomalies come up quite often for some reason, i have no idea why.

On the subject of the finns in question....Well then sir you have got yourself a very unique pair of finns. Id personally keep them because it seems somewhat rare plus i think broken twill is a pretty cool weave and underused in a lot of dry denim stuff except wranglers of course! ;)

After I saw that, I checked some of my jeans and discovered that my SJD are a broken twill. I thought that the older ones were broken twill, but the newer ones weren't (except for last seasons SJ dry broken).

yeah my old jims were broken twill and so were my friends newer ones, i dunno if they are still redcasted like before though. I always thought jims were moving to the crappy ola denim.

Yeah, I figured my jims were the ola denim. They felt the same, but now I know for sure that they are different.

shit man, that is nice. i want some 100% cotton, broken twill finns. is it all just random, factory mishap that some are 100% cotton, 2% stretch and 3% stretch? or depends on season? maybe i will look more closely when i try on some nudies...

yeah I think they're different by seasons. anyways they're a little big on me so i gotta let these go. check the marketplace.

Thanks for all the help guys. Whats better broken twill or right/left hand twill?
