Just wanted to welcome our first legend at MyNudies, which is bilmaga. Yes, check his rank title. He's the man, the Legend. Thank you for being such an active member. Hopefully we get to see your full Nudie collection one day.

Go bilmaga!

:D

3rd May 2007, 10:35
yes he really is truly a legend of mynudies. For some reason when i joined i dont think i remembered much of him and then i disappeared for a couple months and came back and BAM he was everywhere. First to say "welcome back" as well. :D

He's a real nice guy looking out for everyone when he can. so i salute you Mr.Maga. You should get some special rights or something.

I just wish he threw up more pictures of his collection, its so great!


(WHY DONT YOU MAKE HIM A MOD. *NUDGE NUDGE*)

3rd May 2007, 14:49
He is surely a legend. I like the fact that he is helpful to the new ones. He also helped me with responses, when I was about to purchase my first dry jeans (RRDS) 2 months ago.

Keep up the good work bilmaga and congratulations with the title :)

3rd May 2007, 15:56
WOW!!! A thread dedicated to me :oops: .

Thank you all for the kind words, It means alot to me.

You guys didn't actually think that my avatar was a pic of me :shock: (maybe I should change it :lol: )

If you guys want, I will post a "collection pic" . Do you want nudies, or everything?

I would also like to thank everyone for being super nice to me! I could type the names of all the people, but my fingers would be sore, and you guys know who you are anyways :P .

To all of the people that I helped, It was my pleasure. If there is anyone else that wants to know something but is scared to ask (new people esp.) Just shoot me a pm and I will be glad to help!

I say, thanks to mynudies for creating this wonderful forum! Without it, I wouldn't have met all of you.

Thanks again everyone!!!!!

3rd May 2007, 23:47
I already found you a legend :wink: who else has such a collection of dry denim, sure would love to see some pics of it!

I was kinda doubting it too if the avatar was you, always picture that face with the big moustache above it when you post a pic of one of your jeans.
Would make a great look :P

Sarge
4th May 2007, 00:05
i'm fully aware that its a comedy picture of a guy with a massive 'tache........but theres a little part of me that just won't let go of the fact that maybe that is you....even though i know its not.

stiewie
4th May 2007, 00:08
I think it's time to show your face, Bilmaga (together with your nudiecollection) :!:

brody
4th May 2007, 00:41
We must know the man behind the moustache.

bilmaga
4th May 2007, 03:12
Thank you all again for the kind words.

O.K. This weekend I will post a collection pic and one of my face :wink: .

Some of the jeans will be missing, because some are in the mail as we speak, and I doubt that they will shop up in time but I can always update the pics :lol: .

It's actually quite funny that some of you thought that it was a pic of me. I found that pic on the net somewhere and I just had to have it because I thought it was funny.

Cheers,
Justin

And yes, a jean inspection would be in order :lol:

4th May 2007, 04:10
bill i tip my hat to you :wink:

you crazy calgarian denim nut, i always thought of you to have a mustache though, basically because approach to denim is very badass -> you could care less if you've even taken the tags off your last pair because you know you got 2 more pairs on the way -> and you know what, i dig it - you're a very enlighted cat and i dig that about you
you should be on one of those real men of genius bud light commericals lol (if you know what im talkin about) maybe sometime next season (no offense) ill come down to calgary and we can watch my wings beat the shit out of your flames :lol:

seriously tho did you get the xx-007s yet?

before bilmaga actually shows his face, this is what i always pictured he looked like:

bilmaga
4th May 2007, 04:16
LOL Exlie. Maybe I should grow one before I post a pic :lol: .

Gordon said that the 007's shipped out on Monday. He had a delay at customs so they should be at my doorstep ASAP. Don't worry, I promise that pics will be up here for you (I didn't forget).

And hey, It would be my pleasure to go to a game with you and watch your wings beat my flames. But you know how our home record was :lol:

cameland
4th May 2007, 04:38
am i allowed to post twice in this topic? well i saw sarge did so i will again as well!

Bilmaga is definitely a treasure to this forum, i don't think it would fuction properly without him here. I admire him for his kindness and humility.

Congratulations dude you deserve every bit of it. :D

but..bil....stop sending me these funky PM's with cats in it....;)

You don't want my cat e-mails anymore? :wink: Fine then :lol:

:D :D :D :D :D LOLOL....I am soooo guilty. Man, I thought that was you in the photo with a fake mustache added. Anyway...

I don't know you but your posts are always sensible. I've seen posts of yours that I don't necessarily agree with. But you have a way of making your point understood and that's a skill, believe it or not. Anyway...

I say all that to say...congrats, bro!!! It seems only right that you've become the first Legend here.

bilmaga
5th May 2007, 22:17
Thank you!

I appreciate your honesty. Alot of my posts are opinions, so I know that some people think differently. But if it is info that you don't agree with, by all means, argue :D .

Just because I post alot, doesn't mean that I make mistakes :wink: .




Collection pics ASAP for those who are interested.........and yes a pic of me. I almost don't want to anymore because everyone had hopes of a big mustache man. Oh well, life is full of disappointment :P

Certainly! Bilmaga deserves all the great comments and accolades he is getting on this thread in his honour. He's a great online friend to all of us in this community, and I've never read a caustic post or mean criticism on his part.
Sort of a cozy warm feeling for all of us, hence the *****cats! :)

Gahhh daaaayum!! Lolol...it's funny because I would never have dreamt that the guy in your avatar would ever have a denim collection that thorough--LOL!!!

Listen, bro...After I've gotten my collection together for my first season, I may have to send you a pair. I'll definitely let you check things out so that you can give me an honest, no-holds-barred opinion.

what a great collection i must say. No ralfs???? why?
i want one of the DBC connys. they are on top of my list.

Do you wear Nudies most or does any of the other brands get more wear???

Keep up the good work man :D

Not sure why I never bought ralfs to tell you the truth. Before I had nudies, that worn pair of levis at the bottom of the pic was my main pair. Then I got the svens and they get the most use as of right now.

My "main" rotation pairs as of right now, are SSDS and Grifters. But I switch it up alot.

loste
6th May 2007, 01:34
just wonder what sizes are all those jeans???

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 01:40
Anywhere from 28-32. Some of them are alot smaller than tagged size, so you have to size up. Others are vanity sized, so size down.

Getting the actual measurements are key. Never go by just the tagged size alone. With the unsanforized, you also take shrinkage into consideration.

6th May 2007, 01:51
Hey- want to add my congrats and respect! I feel a little less freakish about my own denim collection now. And man, you look so much better than I thought.... that avatar of yours, like an insurance salesman from the 70s warped with an amateur channel game show presenter, yuk.
But I guess it's part of the LEGEND.

Congrats, sincerely. And in the unlikely event of my ever coming near you, I want that inspection of your denims as well, PLEASE.

PS: I like cats a lot, while despising dogs. Hope that goes down well with you.

Cheers.

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 01:54
Thanks drew and 501 lover. :wink:

501- Did you think that my avatar was a pic of me as well?

If you are ever in Calgary, you are more than welcome to drop me a line! And feel free to inspect away!

Special thanks to Cameland for making people think that I have a thing for cats :evil: :P :lol:

501lover
6th May 2007, 02:02
Never knew what to think about that dreadful pic, Bilmaga. Sort of feared it might be you. Then again thought no way. Puzzled me.

Now, is there or is there not a cat on the chair in the back of the collection pic? Don't tell me the "cat thing" is not true? I'd be so disappointed, all illusions about something on the line of soulmate (denim AND cats) destroyed so soon after their inception.

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 02:07
Oh sh*t. I never noticed my cat in the background. Good eyes 501 :lol: .

Yes I have a cat, but I'm not a cat freak :lol: .

Now, I would like to show you my cat collection hahahahha :lol:

Drewbee
6th May 2007, 02:08
i always wondered about your avatar too lol. but im like....theres just no way. I love the nudie connys. I just need to decide what size to get. Whats your third conny?

6th May 2007, 02:13
Oh sh*t. I never noticed my cat in the background. Good eyes 501 :lol: .



Yeah, always got that eye for detail..... :) :P

And it's nice that you do have a cat, no need to be a freak about them.... one freakishness (denim) is enough, I guess!

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 02:17
No, the whole freak thing was because of a post earlier on in the thread. I thought that you read it, and made the cat comment because of it. I didn't even know my cat was in the pic at that time.

Go look at the posts earlier on in the thread, you will understand my reasoning to defend myself on the cat thing.

But all kidding aside, I'm glad you like denim and cats as well :wink:

wow...SORRY about the cat thing bilmaga but i really like cats. I think its cos the first pet i had was a cat or something but i really loved my cat, it was the coolest. 8)

and for anyone who doesnt "get it" the cat thing was a joke, he never sent me cat emails or PM's :shock:


But WOW that is quite the collection. I like your SDA's but yeah i will soon be PM'ing you for some sizing suggestions. You also do not look like the guy in your avatar...sigh....haha at the very least i thought you would look like my version of bilmagio but never the less you are a strapping young lad with an awesome denim collection.

Thanks guys!

All of the nice comments are more than appreciated :D .

I have lots more jeans on the way, so I will build them up and make a bigger collection pic :wink: .

And Cameland- No worries about the cat thing. I thought it was one of the funniest things that I have read :lol:

Sorry that I didn't look like my avatar pic :oops: .

I still find it funny that some people thought that I was that guy on my avatar. I was thinking of changing it, but now, it is almost like my trademark :wink:

Hey Justin, so nice to see your real face. Compliments for your collection Nudie and non-nudie jeans. I own about 15 jeans(most nudie) and always thought only i had such an addiction for jeans.
I'm glad more people do the same!

6th May 2007, 16:32
Seriously nice collection man :D :shock:

no moustache :( i would at least thought you'd grow one just for the picture :wink:

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 19:58
Thanks guys.

I was thinking of growing one for the pic (just as a joke) or putting a fake one on my face for the pic. But people wanted to see the real "man behind the mustache".

But, if I was to grow one, you guys would have had to wait for a while before it was "picture ready"

ExileOnMainStreet
6th May 2007, 20:29
classiest thing in that whole collection is the John Bull/Sewing Chop - JB SC008, very nice
I like the SD 105s too, it surprises me that you still go for nudie when you have basically the best of the best jeans lying on your floor

i just lost all control all bought my sd 003s from a proxy on sufu :? hows the rise on those bitches - the anti fit from my sugarcanes is killing me right now

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 20:34
There will always be a place in my heart for nudies :wink:

As far as the fit on the SDA's. They fit alot better thean the canes. Not the big hip flare like some of the anti-fit jeans

Wow awesome collection!

Though your main one with you in it looks weird. Almost photoshoped as the jeans don't see to look like they were originally on that floor and you look small compared to the background around you.

bilmaga
6th May 2007, 21:07
Thanks ghost.

No photoshop, but I admit the pic looks strange. I had to do an overhead shot to get me and the jeans in the pic, and thats how it turned out.

When I saw the pic, I was thinking of lying down beside the jeans, but that is just strange. :lol:

But all people asked was to see my face and my collection, and that is what I did :wink:

How do those S5000VX compare to your SSDS in fit?
I also ordered the same size in those Sammi's as i wear in my SSLE, so i'm wondering how the sizing will be.

Hi M!ch,

I am sure you will have no problems with the same size as the SSDS. There is quite a difference in fit though! I find that the sammies have an overall more roomy fit, more width in the seat and hip, as well as in the legs. The 17oz material will feel like sandpaper too! I wore long johns under them - guess that won't work any more!

Thanks for your reply f4igurl :D
Wow, wearing long johns under 17oz jeans, that would not work out right were i live, it must be very cold during winter where you live!

I feel more confident now that i've ordered the right size, i would have expected them to be tighter in fit than my SSLE, but it's fine with me if they're a tad looser than i had in mind.
The sizing table on the Samurai site was very confusing as i read everywhere that they run very big.
So i already sized down 2 sizes from the size i should have ordered according to this table, real glad i did.
I did not dare to size down any more, but now i think maybe i could have.

I assume that the roomier fit that you say they have is after soaking them?
How hot did you soak btw?

f4igurl
8th May 2007, 02:46
Hi M!ch, I actually wore them raw for weeks! Then only soaked them last week (after some guidance on soaking from this forum!).

Into the tub, with water as hot as the tap would provide. I left them in for 4 hours - probably should have added more hot water but didn't.

They did shrink quite a bit, and are still roomier than the svens, but I really like the cut. I have a pic somewhere of the fit when raw... Will try to post.

I am sure you will really enjoy!

A pic would be great!
When you wore 'm raw you must have been swimming in them, that explains wearing the longjohns under them.
So i'll do a hot soak, and they'll turn out fine i guess.

Hey Justin, so nice to see your real face. Compliments for your collection Nudie and non-nudie jeans. I own about 15 jeans(most nudie) and always thought only i had such an addiction for jeans.
I'm glad more people do the same!

About your avatar, bilmaga....yes, again. The topic just still keeps my fascination going.

So: where is the avator from? And WHO is this guy????

And why did you choose him?


Enlighten us, (or at least me.... :) ) :!:

Thanks guys. The kind comments are always welcome, and appreciated.

@drydenimbabeeh- I will update you when all of them show up in the mail :wink:

@501- I honestly have no idea who the guy is. One night I was just surfin the net, and I came across this pic. I liked it so much (don't know why really) that I saved it on my comp. I was lookin through a bunch of pictures on my computer a while later, and I saw it again. I decided to make it my avatar. And well, the rest is history :lol:

I was thinking of changing it, but now, I think it has become my identity so to speak.

It's easier when you prioritise. I found that I enjoy traveling and going to shows much more then wearing some new duds. I have plenty as is, and the more I get the less I get to wear of each. Ppl think I'm a collector which I am of sorts but when it comes to clothes I actually LIKE to wear my stuff and not let it sit there. That to me is a waste of time and money that can go towards another trip, etc etc. That's my motivation. Plus art supplies are expensive!!!

I tried showing my mum the video when I sent her the link, she couldn't get past the part where it's twitching the last life away. So sad!!!

Oh and I've always been a legend ya just didn't know it yet =P

Still a myth is something that's beyond belief possibly not even real. Wouldn't you prefer to be or stay a legend as that's more tangible and believable? Like Jordan was a legend, but the Hercules is a myth!? lol

On a slightly related note, I just found out that I'll be going to Montreal in the spring, so if anyone knows of any good stores there, I'd appreciate it if you let me know what/where they are.

I have been there, but thats it. All of my jeans have been bought online (except for a pair at winners).

The only other two places in Calgary that stock nudies are Brooklyn and Holt.

Always helpful.

Right, dry selvedge, not selvedge denim.

Don't worry, that's not the first time that has been done.

I remember when I first started lurking. All of those abbreviations made my head spin. Back then, there were alot less than there are now.

The one that took me the longest to figure out was the SSLE. I was too scared to ask, so I had to ponder for a long time.

My point exactly;-)

AKA the svenska. After days of pondering, I figured out it was "limited edition"

When I started here, the svenska was already out and talked about, so I wasn't around during the talk at the beginning.

Tss, d'uh, everybody knows that one, I knew that even before I joined up. Tss. Babies know that one.

...

There should be a legend thread. Just one post, with all the abbreviations ordered by fit..

It could be called "The Legend".

I was new. At least I admitted it though;-). It was just the LE that was throwing me off.

i just see that i'm longer here.. about 6 months. thats just when the svenska came out i guess.

Are there any pics of a trully trashed svenska. I've never seen one with more than a couple of months of wear.

And when are you going to make some pics of your collection. i know some people are very interested.

BlueOctoberFan

Yeah, the LE threw me off for a while too. I don't think I've seen any that were really thrashed; the flame selvage they were made of hasn't really shown much wear in any pics that I've ever come across.

cyriel had a pair that were washed a few times. Looked pretty good. They weren't trashed by any means, but probably the most "worn" pair that I had seen so far.
