    I love the cuffing on the Nudies in this pic, also can anyway name the cut and wash of all the jeans pictured?

    My guesses would be a RR, SS, and SJ. Also, I believe that all of the Nudies worn in promos are extremely worn in raws...

    Yes I think you're correct. When I talked about 'washes', I meant what kind of raw: organic/dirty/black/greentint etc.

    I think they are just worn Dry jeans.

    To BOT, I think Cuffs look great. Unless its cuffed like 15+ inches up. That just looks lame.

    I think the furthest right definitely looks like black denim to me, could be wrong though?

    15 inches? So you wouldn't wear these?:lol:

    I'd say they're black. The other two are likely selvage. You can see the line on the one in the middle, but nothing on the one on the left. Still, the color looks about the same on those two, so I'd guess they're both selvage.

    I really like the jeans rolled up, as longer as better. If I got very long pants I just roll them up several times to get a real thick cuff. But even rolled up I always wear them a little bit too long, because I like to watch the evolution process of heavy damages at the multiple folded area, when the jeans have an endless war against the streets, trails, steps and so on

    I turn up my jims and I don't think they look too bad. I wouldn't turn up my finns though.

    Cuff selvedge only - small cuff (or roll) on straight leg classic (read 501/Lee 101z) style.

    Everything else - stack.

    Yeah I agree here, selvage is the only time I cuff my jeans.

    I think it's just better to cuff looser jeans. Ever seen ALD Royals without a cuff? It's just weird looking...

    I personally hate the look of turn ups. Also, it might just be me but turn ups seem to be a guy thing, I don't see that many girls doing it.

    I've seen plenty of girls doing it, but it's generally on pants that are like capri pants, and the turn-up is around 4-5".

    Totally Depends On The Jean And The Build Of The Wearer. It Can Go Either Way, Both Look Good, But I Have To Lean Towards Stacking As The Doper Look Before And After Wash.

    I will never turn up my jeans, think it looks ugly!

    When I see someone with its jeans turned up I always think 'what a shame'...

    Dry denim tends to rip too at the fold!

    then you can patch it, giving it a "special look"
    Sometimes I cuff, sometimes I don't. Who gives a ****?
